I’m not running to the window to back either of these teams that are undermanned and playing on the end of a back to back. With that said, the Nets have more production available than the Hornets, who are still without their starting back court. Not having Rozier and Ball continues to take its toll and the losses are starting to pile up. The Nets will have the best player on the court. I’ll lay the chalk with the road team.
