The Atlanta Hawks and the Charlotte Hornets will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Spectrum Center.

ABOUT THE HAWKS (9-2): Even without Howard (quad) and Sefolosha (knee), Atlanta extended its best start in seven seasons thanks to a 19-0 second-quarter run sparked by its bench which outscored Milwaukee 35-25. Howard, averaging 14.8 points and 12.3 rebounds in his first season with the Hawks, has anchored a defense allowing 98.2 points per contest. Forward Mike Muscala (16 points Wednesday) and Howard are among the league leaders in field-goal percentage, while seven Hawks are averaging 9.3 or more points per game.

ABOUT THE HORNETS (7-3): Walker – who never has shot greater than 42.7 percent from the field in a single season – is hitting 49.1 percent of his attempts (47.8 percent from 3-point range) while averaging 25.8 points and 5.5 assists. Center Frank Kaminsky scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter Tuesday, after finishing with a combined 11 in back-to-back losses to Toronto and Cleveland. Charlotte has allowed 100-plus points in its past three games after holding five of its first seven opponents to 97 points or fewer.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hornets listed as TBA-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game’s total is sitting at TBA.

Kemba Walker continues establishing himself as one of the NBA’s elite players, lifting the Charlotte Hornets to victories in seven of their first 10 games. Walker and his teammates face an early-season test Friday when the Hornets host the Atlanta Hawks, who feature one of the top defenses in the league while winning six games in a row in building a 1½ game lead over the Hornets in the Southeast Division.

Walker put together another stellar performance in Charlotte’s 115-108 victory Tuesday at Minnesota – 30 points, six assists, five rebounds and five steals, despite his back tightening up in the second quarter – and credited coach Steve Clifford’s halftime lecture with waking up the Hornets from a 12-point deficit at intermission. “He got into us a little bit,” Walker told reporters afterward. “It worked for us, because we needed to pick our energy up.” The Hawks are playing as well as anybody in the NBA, extending their winning streak with Wednesday’s 107-100 home victory over Milwaukee despite playing without starting center Dwight Howard and key reserve Thabo Sefolosha. “It says a lot about our bench and what they bring,” Atlanta forward Paul Millsap told reporters after scoring 21 points.

Last time out for Charlotte, they were a 115-108 winner as they battled the Timberwolves on the road. The Hornets covered in the match as a -1-point favorite, while 223 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Last time out for Atlanta, they were a 107-100 winner as they battled the Bucks at home. The Hawks covered in the match as a -5-point favorite, while 207 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
