The Washington Wizards look to bounce back off of an abysmal performance in Miami, as they take on the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center this Sunday.
Washington lives and dies on Bradley Beal’s shooting and lets just say he did not exactly have a hot hand shooting 1-14 and scoring 7 points in that game. That led to this team being blown out by the Miami Heat for what was probably the worst loss of the season for the Wizards.
It is also safe to say at this point that this Wizards team does not have the fundamentals down pat, as they cannot defend, and they cannot rebound ranking in the bottom third in both of those categories. Raul Neto and Thomas Bryant will remain out for the Washington Wizards this Sunday.
The Southeast Division in the NBA this year will be a fun one, as it is shaping up just like the NFC East in the NFL with none of these teams really separating from the pack and none of them really playing good basketball. The Hornets come into this game with a 10-13 record which is obviously not all that great, but they sit only 0.5 games out of first place trailing only the Atlanta Hawks for that top spot.
When watching the Hornets this year it is really hard to not notice how legit LaMelo Ball looks, as he is solid scorer with outstanding vision and he looks to have an extremely bright future in this league. Outside of LaMelo, though, look for Gordon Hayward who is quietly putting up 23 points per game for the Hornets this year so he does deserve some of the credit for the Hornets being somewhat respectable this year.
Also look out for the status of P.J. Washington here who is listed as day to day with a foot injury and his absence would not be irrelevant, as he has been producing decent numbers so far this year.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
I am not really sure who is going to win here with the Wizards being so hit or miss, but I think we can count on this game being a wide open affair with end to end action. That leads me to like the over here, as both of these teams also have really solid scorers like Russ, Hayward, and LaMelo to hopefully take care of the efficiency angle for us.
