Desmond Johnson: Hawks 110, Hornets 95.

It feels like the Hornets have punted on the remainder of the season and perhaps rightfully so. The offense is basically Miles Bridges and Brandon Miller and little else. On the other side, the Hawks have clinched a spot in the play-in with a five game lead with three to play. Hawks win an ugly one.

Prediction record: 10-14.

Drew Cook: Hawks 114, Hornets 102.

The Hawks come into tonight’s contest with a 2-4 record for the month of April, and are down 2-1 to the Hornets in this series. However, Charlotte looked absolutely dejected during its final home game of the season against the Dallas Mavericks last night. Atlanta doesn’t want to go down to one of the worst teams in the league. I’ll take the Hawks to find a rare ATS win against Charlotte’s ever-dwindling roster.

Prediction record: 4-0.

Sam Dracula: Hawks 110, Hornets 100.

Trae Young is rumored to return tonight, so I give the Hawks the edge in a tight matchup. It’s going to take a big night from Brandon Miller to keep things interesting. Atlanta is an average to below average defensive team, so anything is possible but I think the Hawks get the W.

Prediction record: 8-3.
