Who's Playing

Charlotte @ Brooklyn

Current Records: Charlotte 27-27; Brooklyn 37-18

What to Know

After a three-game homestand, the Charlotte Hornets will be on the road. They will square off against the Brooklyn Nets at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday at Barclays Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Charlotte ended up a good deal behind the Cleveland Cavaliers when they played on Wednesday, losing 103-90. One thing holding the Hornets back was the mediocre play of power forward Jalen McDaniels, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 3-for-13 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Wednesday as they fell 123-117 to the Philadelphia 76ers. Point guard Kyrie Irving put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 37 points and nine assists.

Charlotte is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.

The losses put Charlotte at 27-27 and Brooklyn at 37-18. The Hornets are 14-12 after losses this season, the Nets 11-6.
