What you need to know about the Hornets
Charlotte made easy work of the Oklahoma City Thunder this past Friday and carried off a 121-98 victory. Charlotte got its win thanks to several key players, led by Rozier, who had 24 points and nine assists in addition to five rebounds. Miles Bridges also had a strong game, finishing with 22 points and 14 rebounds. Power forward P.J. Washington had his best game of the season with 20 points with six rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench.
The Hornets are 1-1 against the Hawks this season, and Atlanta has scored an average of 121 points in those two games. That number is the sixth-highest against all opponents for Charlotte this season. The Hornets have been tougher on defense around the perimeter over their last three games, and have held others to just to just 30.6 percent from beyond the 3-point line during that stretch.
What you need to know about the Hawks
The Miami Heat typically have all the answers at home, but Atlanta was up for the challenge last Friday and edged out the Heat 110-108. Shooting guard Kevin Huerter and point guard Trae Young were among the main playmakers for the Hawks as the former shot 5-for-9 from downtown and finished with 21 points and the latter had 28 points and seven assists.
The Hawks have won their last three games after losing their first two since a trade that sent Cam Reddish to the New York Knicks on Jan. 13. The player that the Hawks took back in that deal, Kevin Knox, hasn’t factored heavily into the team’s rotation thus far, and has just five total points in two games since joining the team. Reddish became expendable following the return of De’Andre Hunter from wrist surgery on Jan. 12. Over his last three starts, Hunter has had a healthy offensive usage rate of 24.5 percent.
