Hornets vs Knicks: Charlotte Hornets
Charlotte Hornets league record up to now is somewhat mediocre. Currently, they stand with six wins and seven losses. They have fallen quite a bit in the last few matches. It is hard to imagine that this same team started the season with so much confidence. They even won five out of their first seven matches. But after that, they went on a five-match losing streak and hit rock bottom. But in their last match against Memphis Grizzlies, they finally changed the tracks and registered their sixth win. The fans were shocked with such performance, and on top of that, the Hornets did not have any major injury problems also.
Speaking of the losing streak of the Charlotte Hornets, they did not just lose the game; they were just wiped out of the score sheet. Their difference against the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings were 22 and 30 points respectively. They were sure to lose against the Grizzlies until Kelly Oubre Jr. came off the bench and showed his class. He added 37 points to help his team win. Hornets’ point guard LaMelo Ball has maintained a really good performance throughout the season, and if he is successful in keeping this till the end of the season, he will be able to earn his All-Star selection. Other than Ball and Kelly, Miles Bridges has too, taken a huge role in helping the Charlotte Hornets improve this season.
Predicted Line-Up – LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, Gordon, Hayward, Miles Bridges, Mason Plumlee
New York Knicks are in slightly better form than the Charlotte Hornets. Out of their twelve games, they won on seven occasions and lost in the other five. New York Knicks lost their last match against Milwaukee Bucks, who are the reigning champions. They played well and were leveled with their opponents. But the reigning champions showed in the last few seconds why they are the champions and took the match away from the Knicks’ grasp. The fans have known the Knicks to be a defensive team, but this season that point of view has backfired. This season, the Knicks have one of the best offenses, while their defense requires a lot of improvement.
New York Knicks’ star player Julius Randle is out there proving his haters wrong, and he loves every bit of it. Last year, he had his first All-Star selection, and his form in this season looks like will earn him his second All-Star selection. Passion and determination are oozing from every pore of his body. Other than him, there is RJ Barrett and Derrick Rose who are starting to come out of their shell. Like Julius Randle, his teammate Kemba Walker is also out there for his second All-Star selection. Julius’ efficiency this season is on point and does not require any criticism.
