Two young teams that are starting to put things together and show promise. You could also argue the Minnesota Timberwolves are playing the better ball, with five straight wins and winning those games by an average of 20.8 points. With that said, the Hornets are at home and that gives them the edge. Interesting game, but I’ve been on the Hornets a lot this season and can’t turn back now.
