The Hornets and Pistons were both playing in low scoring games right before the break, and now after a week off that should continue to happen. Look for a sloppy game in the Motor City tonight.

   Charlotte Hornets vs Detroit Pistons  


The first day back from the All Star Break for these guys is probably tough. After a mid-season vacation, they have to get right back on the grind of trying to win games in a very tough league.

Now take into account that the All Star Break was actually longer this season than in past years. Considering some of these guys probably didn’t even pick up a basketball over their week off, these first few games could get pretty ugly. Past days right after the All Star Break have been pretty ugly basketball and tonight between these two teams should be no exception.

The Hornets are already running into a buzz saw defensively in the Pistons tonight. Detroit has cashed the under at 16-12 at home on the year and they are allowing just 98.9 points per game at home.

Even though two of these teams’ three meetings this season have gone over the total, I’m not concerned with backing the under here tonight. The Hornets have been playing horribly heading into the break and I don’t think time off is going to help them. Both teams cashed the under in four straight heading into the break and I see five in a row tonight.
