The Charlotte Hornets are as healthy as they've been in weeks, and they're capable of rising to the occasion, but right now they're not playing good ball and are losing their last five games by an average of 9.4 points. The Utah Jazz are coming off two straight losses, but they're still a trustworthy squad that's winning their last five games by an average of 12 points. Thick line, but the Jazz have earned our respect. It's the home team or pass for me.
