How to Watch Washington Wizards Vs. Charlotte Hornets

How to watch Washington Wizards vs. Charlotte Hornets originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Sitting at a mere 5-14 following a blowout loss to Miami on Friday night, the Wizards need to quickly turn things around if they hope to reach their goal of making the playoffs this season.  

That begins this Sunday when Washington travels to Charlotte to face the Hornets (10-13), who currently sit in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.

Washington has won two of their last four games, but the team is anything but consistent right now.

Charlotte is coming off a double-digit loss on Friday to the Utah Jazz, but one where rookie guard LaMelo Ball scored a career-high 34 points. Ball has been playing exceptional basketball over the past week-plus and Washington will have their hands full trying to stop the rookie on Sunday.

Here's how to watch.

After scoring 25 or more points in his first 17 games to begin the season, Wizards guard Bradley Beal was held two just seven points (1-14 shooting) on Friday night against the Heat. That total was Beal's lowest in a game in over two years.

Against Charlotte, Beal will certainly be looking to find his offensive rhythm back -- something the Wizards need if they hope to knock off the Hornets on the road.

On the other side, the promotion of Ball to the Hornets starting five has Charlotte opening with a three-guard lineup, with the rookie joining Devonte' Graham and Terry Rozier. Ball's height (6-foot-7) gives Charlotte flexibility to do so, but it'll be interesting to see how Scott Brooks plans to attack the three-guard unit.


Bradley Beal, G, Wizards (33.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg , 4.6 apg): It's extremely rare to see Beal have an off shooting night like the one he had Friday, so much that the Wizards star said "I'm human" during postgame interviews. With Friday's effort behind him, expect Beal to come out looking to establish a rhythm early in Sunday's game to get back on track.

LaMelo Ball, G, Hornets (13.6 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 6.0 apg): Argubaly no rookie is playing better than LaMelo Ball right now. The Hornets guard is coming off his best game as a pro, totaling 34 points and eight assists against the Jazz. With Washington's defense being among the worst in the league, expect Ball to see if he can carry his momentum from Friday into Sunday afternoon's game.
