Matchup to Watch
John Wall vs. Kemba Walker: This road trip is full of elite Eastern Conference point guards: first Kyrie Irving last Saturday, then Wall and Isiah Thomas in Boston Friday.
▪ The Wizards are one of the NBA’s top offensive-rebounding teams, averaging about 15 second-chance points per game.
▪ The Wizards’ bench hasn’t been very good this season. Wednesday night is a big opportunity for the Hornets’ second unit. Hornets backup point guard Ramon Sessions played two seasons in Washington, mostly as a reserrve.
▪ Like the Hornets, the Wizards havn’t had a big homecourt advantage this season, going 7-6 at Verizon Center.
▪ The Hornets and Wizards split four games last season, with each team winning two at home.
