The Charlotte Hornets play host to the Brooklyn Nets at the Spectrum Center on Saturday night.­­­

The Brooklyn Nets have endured a rough start to the season as they’ve lost six of their first nine games, they’ve had to change coaches and are now dealing with Kyrie Irving being suspended for five games. The Nets needed a win to get their season back on track and they did just that last night in a 128-86 blowout road win over the Wizards. Kevin Durant led the way with 28 points, nine rebounds and 11 assists, Nic Claxton added 18 points, Cam Thomas scored 17 points with six assists while Royce O’Neale chipped in with 13 points and eight assists. As a team, the Nets shot 55 percent from the field and 14 of 28 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 38 points in the first quarter to take a 12-point lead into halftime, before they ran away with it in the second half to make it a complete blowout.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a real slump as they’ve lost five of their past six games and they will be hoping to put an end to a three-game skid after getting thrashed by the Grizzlies in a 130-99 road loss last night. Kelly Oubre Jr. led the team in scoring with 17 points, James Bouknight added 14 points with five assists while PJ Washington chipped in with 10 points on two of 15 shooting. As a team, the Hornets shot just 38 percent from the field and eight of 27 from the 3-point line but the problems were on the defensive end as they allowed 41 points in the first quarter to fall into a deep hole which only got deeper as the game wore on.

Looking at the betting trends, the Nets are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games playing on zero days’ rest, 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games playing on zero days rest.

Head to head, the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall and the Nets are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Charlotte.

The Nets were dealing with so much noise coming into last night’s game, so it was really refreshing to see them dominate the Wizards behind a big game from Durant. The Hornets are in a world of hurt at the moment as they really can’t buy a win with all the injuries they have at the moment. The Nets will again be without Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons, but Seth Curry is expected to play. The Hornets are still without LaMelo Ball, Cody Martin, Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward, so it's going to be another opportunity for some fringe role players to step up. It's always tough to play on zero days’ rest, but the Nets looked like a different team with Irving out of the lineup and I think they can carry that momentum into this game.
