Who We Like: The last meeting between these two squads saw the Hornets eke out a 129-124 overtime victory on Nov. 22, a game that was also in Charlotte. Look for the Wizards to get their revenge here. While the Hornets are a much better home team, they still come in at 11-12 when playing in their own arena.
