On May 16, the Washington Wizards and the Charlotte Hornets will play during the NBA regular season. We offer you a forecast for this match.
Few people believed in the transformation of "Washington", but we were among those who almost did not doubt the capital team. Moreover, we have a feeling that Washington will pass the play-in round and even make a noise in the playoffs. But it will be a little later, and in the meantime, the wards of Scott Brooks need to beat Charlotte at home.
The Charlotte Hornets»
The Hornets clearly ran out of energy at the end of the season. This is noticeable to the naked eye, and even the return of Lamelo Ball to the ranks did not help Charlotte much. If the Hornets lose the upcoming game to Washington, they will almost certainly be in the tenth position. This is a play-in, but for the playoffs you will need to win two games in a row.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Avdiya (ankle injury), Bryant (achilles injury) – Washington . Martin (ankle injury), Hayward – foot injury) - Charlotte.
Statistics and figures:
- Washington has won three of its last five games;
- Charlotte has four straight losses;
- Charlotte has won three of its last five games against Washington.
There really are coincidences. "Washington " and" Charlotte " have exactly the same percentage of wins, as, by the way, and "Indiana". And it so happened that it is in the final round that the places from the 8th to the 10th will be determined. We believe that Washington has a better chance here, so we are betting on the capital team with a small head start.
