By Marc Lawrence — From the 2021 Playbook NBA Newsletter: Currently holding down the No. 8 seed, the Charlotte Hornets are yet another team perilously close to the dreaded 10 seed in this year’s Eastern Conference playoff chase.
On the flip side, Denver enters The Hive tonight assured a home court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference postseason.
The Nuggets also laid the 4th worst defeat this season on Charlotte in Denver a month ago where they clobbered the Stingers, 129-104. All of which quickly kicks in the Hornets’ 28-13-1 ATS ledger in games when looking to avenge a loss of 24 or more points.
On the other side of the pillow, the Nuggets check in off a revenge affair of their own at home against Brooklyn knowing the visiting team is 0-8 ATS in this series.
No horror drama here. Grab the points with the Hornets.
