Advice and prediction

The Hornets are playing their best basketball of the season, but playing in Denver is a different challenge than they’ve encountered during their four-game win streak. Nikola Jokic will be a matchup problem, as he is for most teams.

Denver is fifth in the league in 3-point percentage while Charlotte allows the second-most long-range efforts. It’s a formula that has not boded well for the Hornets this season and it’s unlikely to on Wednesday. Take Denver -6.5.

Prediction: Denver 115, Charlotte 106
