Series history(since original Hornets first season in 1988-89): CHA leads series 52-43 all-time

Coming off the heels of a 92-88 win on Monday, the Charlotte Hornets will once again face the Washington Wizards, this time on the home floor of Time Warner Cable Arena on Thursday night.  Charlotte comes in sitting in 7th place in the Eastern Conference by themselves, while the Wizards come in losers of 4 straight, with their most recent setback coming last night in Atlanta.

Scouting the Wizards

The Wizards suffered their 4th straight loss last night in Atlanta, as they dropped a 105-96 decision at the hands of the league and Eastern Conference leading Atlanta Hawks.  Prior to that, the Wizards fell in a tight decision on their home floor of the Verizon Center on Monday against the Hornets, losing 92-88.  Washington hopes that John Wall and Bradley Beal can help the Wizards end their 4-game slide tonight as they continue their road trip in Charlotte against the Hornets.

Scouting the Hornets

Things are starting to come together over the last few games for the Charlotte Hornets, as they find themselves in seventh place in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and they've been starting to pick up the tempo, as they are missing Kemba Walker, who is out for the next 6 weeks.  Tonight, the Hornets are back at it, as they welcome in the Washington Wizards to "The Hive", looking for another solid performance, as well as another win.
