Charlotte Hornets vs LA Lakers Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Wednesday, April 14th 2021, at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Charlotte Hornets vs LA Lakers Preview

Julius Randle had 34 points, 10 rebounds and four assists against his former team as the New York Knicks' staunch defence proved pivotal against the Lakers overnight. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel had his say:

"Really poor passing, some bad decisions and some of it you have to credit the defence. But as good as we were offensively two nights ago, we were just as bad tonight." 

Tom Thibodeau praised his side's togetherness and ability to bounce back, having suffered narrow defeats on the road against Boston and their neighbour Nets. Since then, they've won three straight home games - Memphis, Toronto and now comfortably against the defending champions.  

Dennis Schroder scored 21 points with six assists, Markieff Morris recorded 17 while there were some lopsided box scores, including Andre Drummond (3 pts) and an inefficient bench unit besides Talen Horton-Tucker. 

Their road trip ends in the early hours against an inconsistent Hornets side, as Vogel will hope for marked improvement in the second of their back-to-back slate. 

They are now 5-7 since 2020 NBA Finals MVP LeBron James (ankle) was sidelined for a month on March 20, joining fellow All-Star forward Anthony Davis on the injury report. Kyle Kuzma (calf), Wesley Matthews (Achilles) and Marc Gasol (hamstring) all returned with contrasting minutes, which is a plus. 

Charlotte Hornets vs LA Lakers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is leaning towards a Hornets home win here (53.7%), showing how closely contested this matchup is expected to be. The Lakers should limit turnovers en route to a hard-fought road win but need more scoring help from their supplementary pieces besides Schroder-Kuzma against their similarly injury-stricken hosts.
