What to know

The Hornets have had three home games but will have to remove their road jerseys soon. They face the Milwaukee Bucks at 8:00 pm ET on Friday at the Fiserv Forum. Since both teams suffered losses in their last game, both of them have a little extra motivation going into this game.

The Hornets traveled a rocky road last season, and unfortunately for them the road has not gotten any smoother. They took a 123-117 blow to the loss column at the hands of Toronto. That’s two games in a row now that the Hornets have lost by just six points.

The Hornets’ loss came despite a great game from Miles Bridges, who went 6 for 11 from beyond the arc on his way to 45 points and 7 assists. In fact, that is the most points that Bridges has scored all season. PJ Washington’s 0-5 three-point shooting was less helpful for the Hornets.

Meanwhile, the Bucks’ recent rough patch got a little tougher Thursday after their third straight loss. Their heartbreaking 129-105 loss to Minnesota could stick with them for a while. The Bucks were down 102-75 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to overcome.

Despite the loss, the Bucks had strong performances from AJ Green, who went 7 for 8 from beyond the arc on his way to 27 points and 3 assists, and Jae Crowder, who got 21 points along with eight rebounds and five assists. Green didn’t help the Bucks’ cause much against the Suns on Tuesday but the same can’t be said for this game.

Charlotte dropped their record to 10-40 with the loss, which was their eighth straight at home. That poor showing could be blamed on the team’s offensive performance over that stretch, as they only averaged 106.4 points per game. As for Milwaukee, they haven’t been sharp lately as the team has lost five of their last six games, which put a noticeable dent in their 33-19 record this season.

This contest is one where the amount of possession is likely to be a big factor: the Hornets have not given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 12.9 turnovers per game. However, it doesn’t look like the Bucks are struggling in that department as they have been averaging just 12.5 turnovers per game. With these competitive strengths, it will be interesting to see how their rivalry plays out.

The Hornets must know they are fighting an uphill battle with the 14-point spread they are facing. This contest will be the 12th straight as the underdogs (so far over this stretch they are 4-7 against the spread).
