NBA Odds: Hornets vs. Suns
|Time | Channel||9 p.m. ET |FS-SE|
The Charlotte Hornets are looking to bounce back from a 22-point loss to the Utah Jazz when they take on the Phoenix Suns in a Wednesday showdown.
Phoenix, winner of four of their last five games, will be looking to keep its positive momentum rolling in this contest.
The Suns might have a little added motivation, with leading scorer Devin Booker being perhaps the most obvious All-Star snub this season. Booker is coming off of a hyper-efficient 34 points on 17 shots in a victory over Portland, and could be due for another huge night against the Hornets.
Charlotte is giving up 118.4 points per 100 possessions over its last five games, making them a bottom-10 defense in the league over that stretch, per NBA Advanced Stats.
Our PRO Report suggests sharp bettors are also expecting Booker and company to come up big, with the Suns garnering notable sharp support.
