What you need to know about the Hornets

The night started off rough for the Hornets on Monday, and it ended that way, too. They were dealt a punishing 140-105 defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Charlotte was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 78-55. The top scorers for Charlotte were power forward Jalen McDaniels (24 points) and shooting guard Kelly Oubre Jr. (22 points).

The Hornets have played shorthanded in recent games and that will continue on Friday with many of their best players injured. LaMelo Ball (ankle), Gordon Hayward (shoulder), Dennis Smith Jr. (ankle) and Cody Martin (knee) are all out. Thus, other players like P.J. Washington and Oubre will have to step up, and the latter is averaging a career-high of 19.7 points and should be heavily motivated to face his former team.

What you need to know about the Wizards

Meanwhile, Washington was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Wednesday as it fell 113-107 to the Brooklyn Nets. Despite the loss, the Wizards got a solid performance out of center Kristaps Porzingis, who dropped a double-double on 27 points and 19 rebounds.

Despite the presences of Porzingis, Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma — all of whom are averaging over 20 points per game — defense has been Washington’s calling card this season. It has limited opponents to the fourth-lowest FG percentage while averaging the fourth-most blocks per game. The Wizards will be without Delon Wright (hamstring) and Rui Hachimura (ankle) on Friday.
