High-Flying Hornets Trail Wizards, 52-51

1st QT - Nic Batum is off to his usual good start (2-2). Batum is a difficult player to try to figure out. His usual pattern of strong starts and weak finishes, drives Hornets' fans crazy. (w/7:50 left, 10-6 WIZ)

1st QT cont...Jeremy Lamb checks in with 7:15 remaining in the quarter and the Hornets down 13-9. Marvin Williams hit a 3-pt basket a few seconds later to draw Charlotte to within a basket, 13-12. Out of the timeout, Kemba hit two free-throws to give the Hornets a lead. (w.6:26 left, 14-13 CHA)

1st QT cont...The Hornets were dominant in the paint and on the glass, hence points in the paint (16), second-chance points (7). Marvin Williams scored eight points in the quarter, Bobby Portis scored nine to lead the Wiz. (32-22 WIZ)

2nd QT - After scoring 46 points in the last meeting, Bradley Beal didn't get his first basket until 8:06 in the quarter. Hornets' fans are seeing Dwayne Bacon for the first time in a while. Bacon last played February 14th vs Orlando. In fact, he hasn't played more than five minutes since November 24th. His season-high in points came against Indiana (11/21). Marvin Williams threw down a BIG DUNK with 4:13 left to play that brough this near-sellout crowd to its feet.(w/3:18 left, 48-45 WIZ)
