The Charlotte Hornets travel to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz at the Vivint Smart Home Arena tonight. Currently, the Jazz are ranked 9th in the Western Conference and yet they are a strong favorite by oddsmakers to take the victory at home against a struggling Charlotte squad that sits all the way down in the 14th position of the Eastern Conference standings.
Charlotte is 2-3 in their last 5 matches with recent victories against Houston and Atlanta. As a fun fact, both recent victories ended with 122 points for Charlotte, with Houston scoring 117 and Atlanta 118 in their matches against the Hornets. To make matters worse for Charlotte fans, Kelly Oubre is out and Lamelo Ball is listed as doubtful. Ball hasn’t shined as much this season and Charlotte still has Rozier to lead the offensive as well as Mason Plumlee leading them in rebounds but the Jazz are in great shape and in dire need of a win at home to continue their crusade towards the top half of the Western Conference table.
The Utah Jazz have Kelly Olynky out but are otherwise in great form. They did fall short to the Brooklyn Nets last Friday but utterly dismantled the LA Clippers last Wednesday and narrowly beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-125 at the beginning of last week. Finnish forward-center Lauri Markkanen continues to prove his worth for the Jazz, leading them in points and rebounds. Although Charlotte’s Mason Plumlee has a better field goal percentage than Markkanen at 66% versus Lauri’s 52%, the Finnish star does have an edge when it comes to three point percentage where he leads Charlotte’s PJ Washington 43% to 37%. The line keeps coming down for Utah so stay tuned to see what the angle is for our experts tonight.
