During the regular season, there are so many factors you must consider when betting NBA. Is the coach going to make a random unforeseen rotation change, is a play going to get scratched 10 min before the game, is there gonna be a blowout? That makes this game beautiful. This is a win or go home game, these teams will have their stars out on the floor giving it their all for a chance to sneak into the playoffs. Basically what I am getting at is Trae Young is gonna be on the floor for up to 40 minutes in the biggest game of the season against a terrible defense. Sign me up.
John Collins will be out yet again tonight. In games without his second option, Trae has averaged 31.8 points (26 games) on 21 fg attempts, 8.8 shots from deep, and 8.6 free throw attempts. Scoring should not come too hard for Trae against the defense who is 26th in points allowed, 29th in 3 pointers allowed, 16th in free throws allowed, and 22nd in defensive efficiency.
Not only do I see a great opportunity to score, I think he will also have a massive night setting up his teammates. Trae has been on an impressive stretch distributing. Over his last ten games, he has averaged 19.4 potential assists and 11.2 assists. Charlotte is 29th in assists allowed and play at the 6th fastest pace in the league.
Trae got himself playoff experience last season and showed no moment is too big for him as he lead his team to the Eastern Conference Finals. I expect him to show out big time in a win or go home game.
