Line: Charlotte Hornets vs. Sacramento Kings – view all NBA lines
Charlotte’s losing woes show no sign of abating as the Hornets crashed to their fifth consecutive defeat with a gut-wrenching 114-108 overtime loss to Detroit on Thursday night. The Hornets once again collapsed down the stretch as they squandered a huge 15-point advantage in the fourth quarter. It was another disappointing result for the reeling Hornets who have now lost 12 of their last 13 games.
Up next for the Hornets is a clash with the Sacramento Kings. The Kings showed that there’s life after DeMarcus Cousins, trouncing the Denver Nuggets, 116-100, on Thursday. Willie Cauley-Stein stepped up big time in Cousins’ absence, scoring 29 points and grabbing 10 rebounds to record his first double-double of the season. With the victory, the Kings are now just a half-game behind the Nuggets for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
The Hornets are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven road games against the Kings.
Charlotte wins, 102-94.
Brooklyn Nets vs. Golden State Warriors (10:30 PM ET)

The Golden State Warriors stretched their unbeaten run to two games with a commanding 123-113 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. Stephen Curry scored a game-high 35 points for the Warriors who battled back from a 16-point first-half deficit. With the victory, the Warriors moved 4.5 games clear of the San Antonio Spurs for the top spot in the Western Conference standings.
They will look to sustain the momentum of that huge win when they lock horns with the Brooklyn Nets tonight. The Warriors will fancy their chances of doing just that as they have fared extremely well against the Nets of late. The Warriors have won each of their last three games against the Nets. Golden State thrashed Brooklyn, 117-101, in their first meeting this season.
The Warriors are 9-1 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 home games against the Nets.
Golden State not only wins but also covers the spread against Brooklyn.
