The Hornets are having an inconsistent season so far. They started off the season strong then they have lost track. Now they are missing five of their players due to health and safety protocols. They are currently 9th in the east with a 14-13 record. They have lost their last two games against the 76ers.
The positives so far for the Hornets are their off-season addition Kelly Oubre Jr… He has been averaging 16.9 PPG. Their Young player’s development has been another positive for them. Lamelo Ball and Miles Bridges both are having a great season so far.
Miles Bridges is averaging 20.2 PPG, 7.2 RPG, 3.3 APG, and 1.2 SPG (all career-high). He is one of the favorites to win the most improved player award this season. Lamelo Ball is also having a great season so far, he is averaging 20 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 8.3 APG, and 1.9 SPG so far.
The Hornets are the 3rd best offensive team in the league, but there is a problem for the Hornets, they are 2nd worst team defensively. They must work on their defensive to make the playoffs.
The Kings were off to a rough start to the season. They went 6-11 to start the season, during this phase they lost 7 out of their 8 games. Then they fired their Head Coach Luke Walton. Since then, the Kings have won 5 out of their last 8 games.
They are currently on a three-game winning streak, and they will look to extend the winning streak on Friday against the Hornets.
The kings defeated the Clippers Clippers twice and got past the young Magic team to get their three-game winning streak. The Kings are 11th in the league in the offensive rating. They are at the bottom five when it comes to defense.
But in the last three games, they have been terrific especially in the offensive end. They rebounded well in the last three games with 44 RPG and they were 6th in turnovers per game in the league in the last three games. The Kings certainly have the talent. Do they have the temperament to win on the road is something that has to be seen on Friday.
