The Los Angeles Clippers and Charlotte Hornets meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Spectrum Center.

The Los Angeles Clippers look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 114 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 113.6 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Tobias Harris is averaging 20.7 points and 7.9 rebounds while Lou Williams is averaging 19.2 points and 5.3 assists. Danilo Gallinari is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc and 79 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have won six of their last nine road games.

The Charlotte Hornets look for another victory after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Charlotte Hornets are averaging 111.5 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 111.2 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Kemba Walker is averaging 24.6 points and 5.6 assists while Jeremy Lamb is averaging 14.8 points and 5.6 rebounds. Malik Monk is the third double-digit scorer and Marvin Williams is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game. The Charlotte Hornets have won their last five home games.

The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Clippers are 11-4-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Charlotte and 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings. The under is 7-3 in Hornets last 10 home games. The under is 7-2-1 in Clippers last 10 overall.

The Charlotte Hornets have found some consistency as of late, especially at home hewer they've won five straight and have bumped their average winning margin to six points on the season. The Los Angeles Clippers continue to be a bit shaky, as they try to find their form before the injuries piled up, and they're allowing an average of 115.2 points in their last five games. I usually look to fade the Hornets often, but they're playing their best ball of the season right now and are quietly 16-11 ATS at home this year. I'll lay the bucket with the home team.

Pick:
Charlotte Hornets -3
