The Charlotte Hornets play host to the Brooklyn Nets at the Time Warner Cable Arena on Wednesday.
The Brooklyn Nets have won four of their last six and were going for a third straight win before gettin trounced by the Celtics in a 110-91 rout on Monday. Brook Lopez led the scoring with 31 points on 12 of 19 shooting, Thaddeus Young added 12 points and Deron Williams fell one rebound short of a triple-double but it still wasn't enough to get past the Celtics with the rest of team struggling, especially Joe Johnson who scored just six points. As a team, the Nets shot just 36 percent from the field and a season-worst one of 17 from the three-point line. With the loss, Brooklyn dropped to 29-40 on the season and 12-20 at home.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have lost six of their last eight and are coming off a 98-86 loss to the Bulls despite 29 points from Kemba Walker. Mo Williams added 15 points off the bench but shot just four of 16 as the Hornets shot a miserable 34.6 percent from the field. To add insult to injury, Al Jefferson injured his knee in the first half and did not return in the second half which leaves his status for tonight's game as questionable. With the loss, Charlotte drops to 30-39 on the season which leaves them out of the playoff picture by half a game behind Boston.
In ATS trends, the Nets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall, while the Hornets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a loss and 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games.
Head to head, the Nets are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings and the over is 5-0-2 in the last seven meetings.
Jefferson status for this game is still uncertain so you might want to check the lineup just before tipoff before you place your bets, but either way, I'm still sticking with the Nets who have found a bit of form lately.
