2022 NBA Play-In Predictions: Hornets vs Hawks
The NBA play-in tournament started and Tuesday night provided the first two games, but on Wednesday it gets really interesting. The Charlotte Hornets and the Atlanta Hawks get things started in the early game of the tournament. If you are looking for solid entertainment and like points, this is the game for you. The 2022 NBA Play-In Predictions start with the Hornets vs the Hawks.
The Hornets and the Hawks are two very talented teams on offense, but not so much on defense. Players like Kyrie Irving have humiliated this Hawks defense this season and it is a problem for Atlanta. The Hawks are 26th in defensive rating and cannot stop anyone.
For as good as Trae Young is for Atlanta he can be a liability against a team with good point guards. That is what Charlotte brings to this game. LaMelo Ball leads the Hornet’s guard play and he makes the Hornets a good squad that amassed the best win total for a 10th place team in over 21 years.

The Hornets are the better team. They know how to win (and cover) on the road. Charlotte is an amazing 15-5-1 against the spread (ATS) in the last 21 road games and they are 10-4-1 ATS when they are an underdog on the road. They also are 3-1-1 ATS in Atlanta and they can take the crowd out of the game early with an explosive offense.
