The Charlotte Hornets pay a visit to the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena on Wednesday night. Here’s a Hornets vs Pistons Prediction.

Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets have been in a slump as they've lost seven of their last nine games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after taking down the Timberwolves in a 128-125 upset road win on Monday. Miles Bridges led the team with 28 points, Brandon Miller added 27 points on 11 of 13 shooting while LaMelo Ball tallied 18 points with 13 assists and three steals. As a team, the Hornets shot 56 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in deep trouble when they trailed by 18 points in the third quarter, before they flipped a switch and dominated the fourth quarter by 36-18 to pull off their best comeback win of the season.

Charlotte Hornets Player Facts

  • LaMelo Ball ranks 6th amongst qualified players for three-pointers made Per Game (3.4) this season.
  • Miles Bridges ranks 10th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for FT% (87.1%) this season.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have continued their downward spiral this season as they've lost 10 of their last 11 games and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Bucks in a 122-113 loss on Monday. Marcus Sasser led the team in scoring with 23 points on nine of 17 shooting off the bench, Isaiah Stewart added 19 points while Jaden Ivey chipped in with 17 points and six assists. As a team, the Pistons shot 44 percent from the field and 10 of 30 from the 3-point line as they showed plenty of fight to stay in the contest, until they went ice-cold and scored just two points in the final 4:14 to allow the Bucks off the hook in the end.

Detroit Pistons Player Facts

  • Jalen Duren ranks 7th amongst qualified players for FG% (63.1%) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for steals per game this season (6.0).
  • The Pistons rank 30th in the league for opponent free throws made per game this season (22.3).
  • The Hornets rank 30th in the league for point differential per game this season (-11.1).
  • The Hornets rank 30th in the league for opponent three-point percentage this season (40.1%).

Hornets vs Pistons Prediction

The Pistons should have some reinforcements for this one with Monte Morris and Cade Cunningham both listed as probable, while the Hornets are coming in with a full squad once again. The Hornets have been one of the coldest teams in the league for a while now, so it was really surprising to see them beat the Timberwolves in a major upset on Monday, while the Pistons have continued their losing streak, dropping another close one to the Bucks in their last outing. You couldn't back either team with much confidence, but the Hornets looked like a different team in their win on Monday and I think they get the win against this slumping Pistons team.
