Charlotte Hornets @ Washington Wizards
The Wizards once looked a shoew-in for a good run at the playoffs, there was a point when bookmakers had them as favourites alongside the Cavaliers but at the moment, their hopes of having a lengthy run in the post-season is looking bleak.

The Hornets have lost two games in a row, including a Wednesday night loss at home to the Nets, losing out by a score of 88-91. The Wizards hold a 40-32 record, which contains a 25-11 record but having lost 4 games in a row, they won’t be feeling too confident. Their most recent game came on Wednesday night and it was a 101-103 home loss to the Pacers. With respect to 10 game records, the Hornets hold a 3-7 record and the Wizards have a 5-5 record.
For average points scored, the Wizards lead 98.2 to 94.6 and for average points allowed, the Hornets lead 96.9 to 97.7. The Hornets expect to be without Cody Zeller in this game while Mo Williams and Al Jefferson are being monitored on a daily basis.

Detroit Pistons @ Orlando Magic
The Pistons have a slight hope of making the playoffs but in reality, the focus of the team is to finish strongly and put in the building blocks for next season. The Pistons would need to leapfrog four teams to make the playoffs but when you think about the abysmal start to their campaign, the fact that they are even talking about the playoffs at this stage is an achievement.
The Pistons hold a 27-44 record and this includes a road record of 12-23. The team from Detroit have won 3 games in a row, which includes a Tuesdya night win against the Raptors, winning in Detorit by a score of 108-104.

With respect to average points scored, the Pistons lead by 98.2 to 95.9 while for average points allowed, the Pistons lead by 99.6 to 102.0.
The Pistons could be without Shawne Williams and Greg Monroe while the Magic could be without Willie Green, Tobias Harris and Dewayne Dedmon.
Taking the Pistons at -1.5, at odds of 1.90, is likely to be a smart bet for Friday. Bet Now!
Utah Jazz @ Denver Nuggets
The Jazz capaitalised on strong defensive work to improve their seaosn but of late, they have been struggling. Given that they have been without a couple of key players means that this slump is no surprise but there is a need for their squad players to step it up and take control of this game to ensure that their season keeps going until the end.
The Jazz holds a 31-40 record so far this season which includes a road record of 14-21. The Jazz have lost three games in a row which includes a Wednesday night home defeat to the Trail Blazers, with the Utah side losing by 89-92. In their last 10 games, the Jazz have a 6-4 record.

They lost their most recent game, an 85-99 home loss to the 76ers, and they have a 5-5 record in their last 10 games. For average points scored, the Nuggets lead by 100.2 to 94.7 and for average points allowed, the Jazz lead 95.0 to 103.8.
Neither team has significant injuries to report but whether both teams are at their best is a different question.
