While Charlotte has won eight of its last 10 games, New Orleans has dropped four of its last five. The Pelicans are coming off a 115-112 victory over the Kings on Monday, but they've also failed to cover in six of their last eight games following a victory and are just 1-4 against the number in their last five games versus Eastern Conference opponents.

Marvin Williams is one of the reasons while the Hornets have been hot of late, as he's averaging 13.5 points over his last six games. Charlotte is also 22-9 at home this season and is going for its sixth win in a row at home.
