No shade to Jarred Vanderbilt, but Capper Penguin loves this pick for Monday night's NBA action!
Capper Penguin's Monday NBA Pick: Hornets @ Jazz - 1/23
Charlotte Hornets (13-34) @ Utah Jazz (24-25)
No shade to Jarred Vanderbilt, but the Jazz went on a tough losing streak losing 7 out of 8 games from December 26th to January 7th and have won their last 4 of 6 games after taking Jarred Vanderbilt out of the starting lineup.
Since then Lauri Markkanen has grabbed 10+ boards in every game averaging 12.75 rebounds per game. On top of that, the Hornets play a very fast paced game allowing the 5th most rebounds to the power forward position. This is also a direct correlation of Colin Sexton's return. He's back on the squad and he doesn't rebound at all. Lauri Markkanen has hit in his last 6 of 7 games with Sexton averaging 12.83 rebounds per game and the one time he missed Jarred Vanderbilt started.
Let's grab some rebounds tonight Lauri!
