This Saturday will see two NBA Southeast Division opponents square off as the Washington Wizards travel to the Tar Heel State to take on the Charlotte Hornets. The Wizards took the last meeting between these two 109-99 in Charlotte on January 23rd.
The Wizards have begun to stumble as of late.
This will be the second game of a back-to-back as they take on the Chicago Bulls at home on Friday. Previous to that game, Washington had lost two straight including a 112-107 home loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Washington is still in 3rd place in the East.
The Hornets have also faced a rough patch over the last week.
They have lost three in a row and four of their last five. Charlotte was held to only 77 points in their loss (98-77) at the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. The Hornets are currently in 12th place in the Eastern Conference.
The Wizards continue to be the streakiest team in the NBA and are currently on a two-game skid. Before that, they had won five straight and begun to threaten the Celtics and Cavaliers at the top of the conference.
Washington has a chance to end the streak in their matchup against the Bulls on Friday. It will not be an easy task to turn around from that and take on the Hornets, but the Wizards need to pull things together again.
The Wizards have the 5th best scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 109 points per game. They rank 21st in rebounding with 43 and 7th in assists with 23.9 per contest.
Defensively, Washington allows 106.9 points per game which ranks 22nd in the league.
John Wall leads the way for Washington with 23.2 points and 10.7 assists per game. Bradley Beal also contributes 23.2 points per contest. Markieff Morris and Otto Porter Jr. both chip in 14.1 points and 6.7 rebounds a night.
The Hornets have struggled, to say the least, in the month of March. They were a legitimate playoff contender earlier in the year, but have struggled to get on track since the All Star Break.
Charlotte has now lost three games in a row, including an embarrassing 98-77 defeat in Indiana on Wednesday. They also lost to the Chicago Bulls and New Orleans Pelicans in the stretch, but they were at least competitive in those games.
The Hornets score an average of 104.9 points per game which ranks 15th in the league. They rank 7th in rebounding with 44.6 and 11th in assists with 23.2 per contest. On the other end, they allow an average of 104.4 points per game, ranking 11th in scoring defense.
Kemba Walker leads the way with 22.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game.
Nicolas Batum contributes 15.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists a night. The Hornets share the ball well and have four other players in double figures.
