The Charlotte Hornets host the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Spectrum Center on Sunday in NBA regular season action.
Tonight’s Eastern Conference clash will see the struggling Charlotte Hornets (sitting in 14th place) take on the high-flying Cavs side, who are fourth in the Eastern Conference standings. The Cavs come into this game after a disappointing 115-119 loss against the Miami Heat. The defeat dropped their overall record to 42-27, following a run of three successive wins.
The Hornets enter the game with three losses in their last five games, including a 111-119 loss against the Utah Jazz in their last game. Their 22-47 record leaves much to be desired as they sit near the bottom of the standings with no potential for revival. After suffering regular and long-term injuries, Charlotte talisman LaMelo Ball carried his form from last season into this one, leading the side in points per game and assists.

Cavaliers vs. Hornets Betting Prediction
The Cavs are the guaranteed victors in this one. They have been sublime this season due to some record-breaking performances by Donovan Mitchell and co. Mitchell leads his side in scoring this campaign, averaging 33-5-4 over the last five. He has scored 40 or more in three of his last five games, a run in which the Cavs have gone 3-2. The Hornets are in for a long night.
