The Hornets were expected to have a hard time for this season with the departure of Kemba Walker. Still, a good sight for the team is Devonte Graham stepping up big time and helping the team in all categories. Terry Rozier has embraced a bigger role with the team as well and has been providing the team with terrific numbers. PJ Washington has been very solid as well along with Miles Bridges. Cody Zeller has stepped back from the center position to give Bismack Biyombo some starter minutes. But depth has been a huge problem for the Hornets as the bench players are not able to sustain what their starters are doing on the court.

Portland Trail Blazers Betting
The Portland Trail Blazers are top-heavy with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum carrying the scoring load for the team. Carmelo Anthony’s return has been fantastic and he has solidified his position with the team. Outside of those four players, Anfernee Simons has become a solid contributor but outside of him, the bench players have been inconsistent. Against the Hornets, they just have enough talent to get over their opponents but depth has been their main problem so far. In this game, Hassan Whiteside is expected to be sidelined due to illness. Rodney Hood will also miss this game as he is out with an Achilles injury. The Blazers have been stumbling and this is a good game for them to brush up after losing two straight games.
Players to Watch: D. Lillard PG 37 GP 37 GS 36.7 MIN 26.8 PTS 0.5 OR 3.7 DR 4.2 REB 7.6 AST 1 STL 0.4 BLK 2.8 TO 1.8 PF 2.8 AST/TO 24.65 PER
