Charlotte Hornets Betting

This season has been very bitter-sweet for the Charlotte Hornets as they were rolling and even had the fourth-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference until the injury bug plagued the team’s best players. LaMelo Ball was sidelined for more than a month while Gordon Hayward is still not playing until the play-in tournament finishes. They are now in a tight battle with the Washington Wizards on who will be the eighth-best team in the east standings. In this game, Terry Rozier is the best player to lead them along with Devonte Graham. LaMelo Ball has a good chance of sealing the rookie of the year honors if he shows good resiliency.

Washington Wizards Betting

The Washington Wizards have made it this far after being very close to the bottom of the NBA Eastern Conference standings early this season. Unlike the Charlotte Hornets, the injury bug hit the Wizards early in the season losing Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal for a few games. Thomas Bryant was also sidelined for the entire season and that was a big blow for this team. Rookie Deni Avdija’s season also ended early. It is unsure how the Wizards will treat free agency but with what the players are showing, they are making the most out of the situation in trying to make things work.

Players to Watch: B. Beal SG 59 GP 59 GS 35.8 MIN 31.4 PTS 1.2 OR 3.5 DR 4.7 REB 4.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.1 TO 2.3 PF 1.4 AST/TO 23.22 PER
