Current Records: Phoenix 30-14; Charlotte 23-21
What to Know
The Charlotte Hornets have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Phoenix Suns at 1 p.m. ET March 28 at Spectrum Center. The Hornets are out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Charlotte beat the Miami Heat 110-105 this past Friday. The team accrued 72 points in the first half and coasted on those for the win. Charlotte's success was spearheaded by the efforts of shooting guard Malik Monk, who shot 5-for-9 from downtown and finished with 32 points, and shooting guard Terry Rozier, who posted a double-double on 26 points and 11 assists in addition to five rebounds.
Meanwhile, Phoenix came out on top in a nail-biter against the Toronto Raptors this past Friday, sneaking past 104-100. Phoenix can attribute much of their success to point guard Chris Paul, who had 19 points and eight assists along with six boards, and center Deandre Ayton, who had 19 points along with nine rebounds.
Charlotte is expected to lose this next one by 6.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The Hornets came out on top in a nail-biter against the Suns in the teams' previous meeting last month, sneaking past 124-121. Will Charlotte repeat their success, or does Phoenix have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
