The Washington Wizards are currently 11-5, which puts them among the top-3 seeds in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets, on the other hand, are the fifth seed, and sit two games above 0.500.

LaMelo Ball was one of the best players in the NBA last week, averaging 20 points, nine rebounds, and ten assists per game – that likely will continue tonight against the Wizards, considering Ball set his career high in assists last week against Washington.

In the last time these two teams met, Daniel Gafford had a career game, logging 20 points, nine rebounds, two steals, and a block in 24 minutes of play. It will be interesting to see if he has a similar game tonight – or if the Charlotte Hornets are able to contain Gafford.

Miles Bridges set his career high in points in the Hornets last game – he is having a the best season of his young career, averaging 22 points, eight rebounds, and three assists. The Wizards have a lot of different frontcourt pieces to throw at Bridges – so how he handles that will be something to watch.
