Hornets vs. Timberwolves Prediction & Pick

The Hornets are clearly feeling the effects of their injuries to start the season. Star point guard LaMelo Ball is on the shelf again after reaggravating his ankle issue, and his replacement Dennis Smith Jr. is also out for this game. Leading forward Gordon Hayward is questionable for this contest as well, potentially leaving Charlotte without three of its top four playmakers in this one.

The red-hot Wolves should feast on a Hornets defense giving up the ninth-most points per game this season.

Final Score Prediction: Hornets: 105 | Timberwolves: 117

Hornets vs. Timberwolves Best Bet

The scoring-minded Terry Rozier is being asked to do what he does best with the Hornets' absences. His current average of 20.4 PPG would tie his career high, and his 20.7 field goal attempts per game are 4.3 more than he's ever put up in his career.

Playmaking, though, hasn't been his major focus in the early going. While he's averaging a career-high 5.4 assists per game, he's posted more than 6 assists just twice in 12 games. Facing a tough Minnesota frontcourt, this likely isn't the night that he and his teammates have a ton of offensive success.

Bet: Terry Rozier Under 6.5 Assists (-150)
