The Charlotte Hornets and the Atlanta Hawks collide in the NBA Play-In at the State Farm Arena on Wednesday night.
The Charlotte Hornets are coming into this game with plenty of momentum as they won 11 of their last 15 games of the regular season to sneak into the playoff picture with a 43-39 record. Miles Bridges played all but two games of the regular season and averaged 20.2 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, LaMelo Ball averaged20.1 points, 6.7 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game while Terry Rozier averaged 19.3 points and 3.6 assists per game. As a team, the Hornets scored 115.3 points per game while shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from the 3-point line.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been streaky all season, but they are coming into this with plenty of confidence after winning seven of their last nine games of the regular season to finish with a 43-39 record. Trae Young led the team with averages of 28.4 points and 9.7 assists per game, John Collins averaged 16.2 points and 7.8 rebounds while Bogdan Bogdanovic averaged 15.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. As a team, the Hawks scored an average of 113.9 points per game while shooting 47.0 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from the 3-point line.
Looking at the betting trends, the Hornets are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a win of more than 10 points and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games as a road underdog. The Hawks are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games, 1-4 ATS in their last five games playing on two days’ rest and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games overall.
Head to head, the under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings overall and the Hornets are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Atlanta.
The Hawks earned the 9th spot on a tiebreaker with the Hornets to earn home-court advantage in this matchup which is massive given that they are so much harder to beat at home. The Hornets were a solid 21-20 on the road this season and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 road games, so you could really make an argument for either side here. The Hornets are just about at full strength except for Gordon Hayward who has barely played all season, while the Hawks are going to be shorthanded with Lou Williams and John Collins already ruled out of this one. This should be a close one, but the Hornets can certainly cause the upset if they start well, so I’ll be taking them with the points in this spot.
