Cavaliers vs Hornets Prediction & Pick

If Charlotte wants to win its second game in a row, their starters need to shoot better from range. Their starting lineup shot 3-for-13 (23.1%) from three-point range against the Lakers, relying on the bench players to bail them out. That won't cut it on most nights.

It won't be easy because even though the Cavaliers lost to the Nuggets, they held Denver to 28.1% three-point shooting. Things appear even grimmer for Charlotte once you consider that the Lakers' Summer League roster is far from the strongest.

I'm expecting the Cavaliers to have a bounce-back performance and walk out of this game with the victory. As for the best bet, take Cleveland on the moneyline at +124.
