Charlotte might not have anything to play for, but it is a 21-19 straight up team at home. Indiana is only 20-20 straight up on the road. Indiana is secure as the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference and could give key players fewer minutes or sit them entirely so keep an eye on that as tip-off approaches. The Hornets won 133-126 the last time they hosted in February and they should have enough in the tank to do it again.
