After two games in Philadelphia against the 76ers, the Charlotte Hornets will continue their current road trip with a stop in Atlanta where they are set to face the Hawks on Wednesday.
Charlotte is looking to snap a three-game losing streak with a win over ATL, however, in order to do so, the team will have to find a way to add more offense.
The Hornets starting line-up has struggled lately with generating the offense needed to win games and the team currently ranks 23rd out of 30 teams in points per game. Although Hornets head coach James Borrego says he isn't ready to give up on his starting unit yet, he will be trying some different combinations throughout the game on Wednesday night.
“There are lineup tweaks that will be made," Borrego said. "Not necessarily in the starting lineup – just trying to find some different combinations of guys as we move throughout a game to give us more offense. I want to focus on what we can improve on right now and get better at it. We do have to get off to better starts and the [starting] group is struggling to score. Those are the facts, but I’m not going to give up on the group quite yet. Sometimes you plug one hole and you open up a floodgate somewhere else. Let’s stay the course, stay poised, continue to grow and get better.”
Tipoff is set for 7:30 PM.
