I’m going to take the Hornets here. Portland has been on a tear lately, but the Hornets nearly beat the Trail Blazers in Portland earlier this season, and the Hornets are rested up for this one. I don’t know if the Hornets will have enough to get the outright win over Portland, but getting three buckets with Charlotte at home looks like the side here.
