It’s an Eastern Conference showdown on Friday night at Capital One Arena. The Charlotte Hornets make the trip to Washington D.C to take on the Wizards.
The Hornets have won each of the previous two match ups so far this year. Both teams will be on the second night of a back to back.
The Charlotte Hornets who have been one of the bigger disappointments this season but with a good next couple of months, they could make the playoffs.
They need to take advantage of games like this though where they are playing lesser competition. Every game they lose against worse competition, the better the chance they will miss the playoffs.
For the Hornets, they finished their last game before the All-Star Break on a high note beating the Orlando Magic 104-102.
For the Hornets, their struggles also come on the defensive side of the ball. They are currently giving up 106.6 points per game.
To win this game the Hornets need to play better on the defensive side of the ball. If they can don’t Bradley Beal and the Wizards will torch them all night, and they won’t have enough offense to keep up in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Washington Wizards who have been playing some really good basketball since losing John Wall to injury.
They come into this game having won two games in a row, and seven of their last nine games. They have also covered the spread in all seven of those victories.
For the Wizards their strength is on the offensive side of the ball. Coming into this game they are averaging 110 points per game on their home court.
Even with Wall out the offense still has good ball movement, and that has led to quite the role that they have been on.
For the Wizards one thing to watch is how their legs are. They have a tough game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night, and it will be interesting to see how much energy that takes out of them.
