What to Know

The Hornets will be in front of their home fans on Monday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-court advantage. They will take on the Indiana Pacers at 7:00 p.m. ET on Monday. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous matches.

The Hornets came into Saturday’s matchup having lost ten straight, but that streak is now in the rearview. They walked away with a 115-106 victory over Memphis on Saturday. For those curious, yes, that was the biggest win the Hornets have managed all season.

Miles Bridges was the offensive standout of the match as he scored 25 points along with six rebounds and five assists. He didn’t help the Hornets’ cause all that much against the Bucks on Friday but the same can’t be said for this match.

Meanwhile, winning is just a little bit easier when you work as a team to rack up 14 more assists than your opponent, a fact the Pacers proved on Saturday. They enjoyed a cozy 125-111 victory over New York. The win was just what the Pacers needed coming off of a 131-109 defeat in their prior game.

The match pitted two of the league’s most dominant guards against one another in Tyrese Haliburton and Jalen Brunson. Haliburton had a solid game and dropped a double-double on 22 points and 12 assists. Meanwhile, Brunson did his best for the losing side, scoring 39 points.

Charlotte’s win ended a eight-game drought at home and bumped them up to 11-41. As for Indiana, they have been performing well recently as they’ve won three of their last four matches, which provided a nice bump to their 30-24 record this season.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Hornets haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 13 turnovers per game. However, it’s not like the Pacers struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 13.1 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Pacers and the Hornets pleased both fans and bettors in their last matches by winning and covering the spread. Going forward, the game looks promising for the Pacers, as the team is favored by a full 11 points. This contest will be Charlotte’s 14th straight as the underdogs (so far over this stretch they are 5-8 against the spread).
