What you need to know about the Hornets

Charlotte made easy work of the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday and carried off a 140-111 victory. The Hornets can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Kelly Oubre Jr., who shot 9-for-14 from downtown and finished with 32 points and six rebounds.

Under head coach James Borrego, the Hornets rank second in the NBA in pace (100.8) and second in the NBA in scoring (115.5). Oubre is averaging 16.6 points per game after signing as a free agent this offseason while second-year guard LaMelo Ball is averaging 19.3 points, 7.8 assists and 7.3 rebounds per game and has continued his evolution as one of the game’s brightest young stars.

What you need to know about the Bucks

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the contest between Milwaukee and the Brooklyn Nets on Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Milwaukee wrapped it up with a 121-109 win on the road. It was another big night for the Bucks’ power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 31 points and nine assists along with seven boards.

With Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, Jrue Holiday and George Hill all in health and safety protocols, Antetokounmpo will continue to assume primary ball-handling responsibilities and the Bucks will likely go with a large lineup to cope with the lack of guard depth. They had success with it against what many consider to be their biggest threats in the Eastern Conference on Friday and will hope for similar results on Saturday.
