Charlotte Hornets vs Utah Jazz prediction

Don't look now, but the Charlotte Hornets have won 3 straight games. Will it continue? Probably not, but for the first time this season the Hornets are attractive in the underdog role given the recent results. Also, no matter what you think of the Hornets, laying massive chalk with the Jazz isn't in the cards. The Jazz still don't play much defense and the losses are starting to pile up. Give me the Hornets and the points if forced to pick this game.
