Two squads who very well could be fighting for the top draft pick at season end meet up on Friday, November 22. Make no mistake this could be a game in which the clubs shatter the previous cumulative score as the Charlotte Hornets play the Washington Wizards for the first time in the 2019-20 season.
Last season, the squads played on four occasions with the Hornets taking three of the four games. The Hornets hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 62 of their 114 matches.
The Hornets were riding a high taking two games on the weekend courtesy of clutch time buzzer-beaters but got served a dose of reality in Toronto.
The defending champions laid down a winning effort highlighted by a franchise-high 40 assists and 20 triples on 43 attempts as they dispensed of the Hornets 132-96.
The two weekend heroes Devonte Graham (11) and Malik Monk (7) were held in check by the Raptors but they fared better in the Wednesday match versus the Nets.
Granted it was another loss, but Graham scored 17 and Monk added 13. Terry Rozier led the team in scoring with 18 while Miles Bridges (12) and Bismack Biyombo (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
The Hornets have no injured players.
If you like high scoring games with zero defensive effort you’ll love watching the Washington Wizards. Having already put up 158 points in a losing effort they got the arrow to tilt the other way in a 138-132 win over San Antonio.
The Spurs were uncharacteristically taken out of their regimented system and got lured into the offensive free for all.
As per usual Bradley Beal led the way for the Wizards with 33 points, four assists, and four rebounds. Six other Wizards chipped in with double-figure efforts including Davis Bertans and Ish Smith who each netted 21 points.
The other quartet was Rui Hachimura (15), Moritz Wagner (13), Thomas Bryant (11), and Isaiah Thomas (11).
Ian Mahinmi remains out dealing with a strained right Achilles tendon and isn’t expected back until the middle of the month. John Wall isn’t expected to return this season as he rehabs a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The key to slowing Charlotte is perimeter defense because they constantly reset looking for an open shooter. While the key to stopping the Wizards is to not get lured into an offensive back and forth.
If there is a team who can light it up from deep and keep pace with the Wizards though it’s the Hornets who take more 3-point attempts (35.7) than Washington (34.6) and hit fractionally less (12.9 for Charlotte vs. 13.0 for Washington).
