Washington is still in great shape in the East and their playoff life isn’t in any jeopardy, but the Hornets are 7th in the East and right in the thick of the playoff race.

Washington hasn’t been bad on the road, but they’re 13-11, which isn’t that good. Charlotte is 12-13 at home. However, the Hornets have been getting better, as they’ve won four home games in a row.

The Hornets have really been rolling and that’s even with Kemba Walker being banged up. Al Jefferson is back and has been dominant in the paint. His size and skill level is incredible for a big man in the NBA.

I’m not too sure what’s going on with the Wizards, but they’ve been bad lately. Washington is 2-6 in their last 8 games with the two wins coming against the lowly Nuggets and Lakers, which isn’t a good sign.

Razor Ray's Picks

These two teams just played each other a few nights ago in Washington and the Hornets won (92-88) a close one. Scoring was at a premium in the game and the highest scorer ended up being Jefferson (18).

On paper the Wizards aren’t bad, but they’re far from one of the best teams either. Washington comes in scoring 99.9 PPG (17th) while giving up 98.0 PPG (9th). They rank 11th in rebounds and 5th in assists as well.

This team is talented, but outside of John Wall there are some consistency concerns. Beal can be lights out one night and than invisible the next. Gortat and Hilario have both been having lots of issues.

When the Hornets are healthy they’re a good team. They play great defense and only allow 96.9 PPG (5th), but the offense is only scoring 94.8 PPG (27th). If they want to make the playoffs they need more scoring.

Stephenson has been a disappointment in his first season with the Hornets. This team has a ton of depth and they often play a rotation of 10+ players.

That means they should have lots left in the tank.

Free NBA Picks: Washington Wizards vs. Charlotte Hornets

I’m rolling with the hot team that’ll be at home in this game. The Wizards aren’t playing like they were at the start of the season. Washington is the better team, but the Hornets are playing better at this time.

Charlotte Hornets –1.5 (-110)

Jefferson will likely dominate the paint and I expect the Hornets defense to shine. MGK and Biyombo will come up big on defense. The Wizards aren’t great on the road either compared to when playing at home.
