Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets have been struggling with five losses in their first eight games, but they will be eager to build some momentum after beating the Wizards in a 124-117 road win on Friday. Gordon Hayward led the team with 27 points, nine assists and four steals, LaMelo Ball added 25 points with six rebounds and six assists while PJ Washington chipped in with 11 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Hornets shot 45 percent from the field and six of 28 from the 3-point line as they got off to a slow start and trailed for most of the contest, before they clicked into gear and dominated the fourth quarter by 36-20 to come away with the unlikely victory.

New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been in decent form as they've split their first eight games, but they will be gunning for a third straight victory after blowing past the struggling Spurs in a 126-105 home win on Wednesday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 25 points and six assists, RJ Barrett added 24 points with six assists while Julius Randle chipped in with 23 points, 16 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 46 percent from the field and 19 of 42 from the 3-point line, but this win was set up with their defense as they held the Spurs to just 16 points in the first quarter to open a double-digit lead, before they made another run in the third quarter to push the lead out to 30 points.

Peter's Pick

The Hornets really needed a win to get their season on track and they got just that with a comeback win over the Wizards on Friday. Meanwhile, the Knicks were able to make light work of the Spurs for their second straight win and they should be well-rested as they haven't played since Wednesday. The line is a little hefty, but the Knicks have easily beaten the lesser teams in the league and I think that trend continues here as the Knicks get the win and cover at home.
