How They Match Up:
When it comes to rebounds, the visiting Hornets rank No. 1 in the league with 53 per game. That compares with Utah’s No. 15 ranking in that category. The story is different when it comes to three-point shooting where Utah is the NBA’s No. 27-ranked team at 4 per game, while the Hornets rate No. 29 with 2.2 per contest.

The Hornets were a 96-80 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Kings. They failed to cover the 4–point spread as underdogs, while the total score (176) made winners of UNDER bettors. Trevor Ariza scored 17 points in a failed effort to lead the Hornets to victory (they lost 96-80 to Sacramento at Power Balance Pavilion on Sunday).

Utah lost its last outing, a 104-89 result against the Spurs on December 31. The Jazz failed to cover in that game as a 13.5-point underdog, while the 193 combined points took the game UNDER the total. The Jazz got a 21-point performance from Al Jefferson, who added 11 rebounds, but San Antonio still ran past Utah 104-89 on Saturday at AT&T Center.
