The Wizards played a home and home series versus the Heat losing the first game in Miami and winning a thriller on Saturday at home.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Hornets winning two of the three contests. The Hornets hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 66 of their 121 matches.
Miles Bridges did his best to keep the Hornets in the match versus the Hawks putting up a double-double of 35 points and 10 rebounds. LaMelo Ball delivered a triple-double of 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists plus two steals, and a block.
Cody Martin (14), Gordon Hayward (11), and Terry Rozier (10) all scored in double figures.
The Hornets take the second-most field goal attempts in the association and possess the third-best efficiency (42.2 percent) as well as the third-best perimeter efficiency (37.0 percent).
Other areas of prowess for the Hornets are assists (26.3) and steals (9.2) which are the fourth-best of the 30 teams.
Five Hornets average double-figure scoring including Miles Bridges (20.8), LaMelo Ball (19.6), Gordon Hayward (18.1), Terry Rozier (15.1), and Kelly Oubre Jr. (14).
PJ Washington has been out since injuring his elbow in the match versus the Warriors missing nine games since and is questionable for Monday.
If there were any questions about the Wizards being a quality team worthy of their record and not just benefiting from an easy schedule the match versus the Heat offered a resounding yes to that question.
Washington had to fight back in the final frame to win and deliver clutch time defense to cement the win. Bradley Beal led the way with 21 points and nine assists.
Spencer Dinwiddie and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each scored 16 points while Montrezl Harrell added 13 points.
While Bradley Beal leads Washington in scoring (23.9 points) the next four highest points per game tallies are from players who were added to the squad this offseason.
Specifically, Montrezl Harrell (17.4), Spencer Dinwiddie (15.7), Kyle Kuzma (14.1), and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (9.1). This proves how beneficial the trade of Russell Westbrook was for Washington.
The Wizards possess the best defensive rebounding in the Association as well as the best perimeter defense holding opponents to 30.3 percent.
Spencer Dinwiddie was held out for rest in the first game versus Miami but back on Saturday. Thomas Bryant (knee) and Davis Bertans (ankle) were both upgraded to questionable for Monday. Rui Hachimura (personal) remains out with no update on a return date.
