Charlotte Hornets vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

Backing the San Antonio Spurs in the favorite role does feel strange, but they're the healthier side and at home. The Charlotte Hornets have lost 14 of their last 15 games, and they're still without key players including Ball, Washington, and Martin is questionable. Victor Wembanyama is fresh off a triple double and the Spurs are a bounce here and there from riding a three game winning streak. The Spurs are the more competitive team at this stage, as the Hornets are waiting for the season to end. I'll lay the bucket with the Spurs.
