Gordon Hayward is the third double-digit scorer and Terry Rozier is dishing 2.9 assists. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc and 73 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.6 rebounds per game.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 109.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.8 points on 48 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 26 points and 7.2 assists, while Desmond Bane is averaging 16.3 points and 3.6 rebounds.

The Hornets are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Hornets last 6 overall. The under is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 overall. The Hornets are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Memphis and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Charlotte Hornets are a flashy, exciting and fun team to watch, but they continue to pile up the losses and a lot of it has to do with a defense that can't get stops. The Hornets are 30th in points allowed per game and 27th in field goal defensive percentage. The Memphis Grizzlies have their defensive issues as well, but they're finding ways to win games regardless, and they've covered seven of their last 10 tries. I'll lay the small chalk with the Grizzlies at home.
