Charlotte Hornets vs Washington Wizards (By: Miyagi)
The Hornets are as good at home as they are bad on the road but as long as they keep collecting Ws at home they should be good for a playoff spot in the East. As a matter of fact, the Hornets have the best home record and the best overall point differential (+/-) outside of the top 5 teams in the East.
On the other side, the Wizards are amongst the most inconsistent teams of the league and this has been a roller coaster season for them so far. They have been very poor on the road with their 7-23 record and it is not surprising that only the Cavs have a worse record than them in the East.
The Hornets rank better in both offensive and defensive efficiency at home compared to the Wizards on the road and its not even close! The Hornets have won their last 5 home games with a margin of +12.6p on average. The Wizards have lost 4 of their last 5 away games with a margin of -6.2 on average.
Hornets lost the first meeting of the season with the Wizards as visitors (126-130) but they are about to set things straight here and tie the series while they should have no trouble winning by more than 4 points. Anything but a home win in this game would be at least surprising.
