On the front end of a back-to-back stretch, the Washington Wizards got lit up by Paul George and C.J. Miles for a combined 72 points on Tuesday for the Indiana Pacers. Washington was hoping to rebound Wednesday on the road against the Charlotte Hornets to go into their Thanksgiving day off happy. Unfortunately, things did not go that way as the Wizards got absolutely abused in the fourth quarter. Washington lost 101-87 as the Hornets ended the game on a ridiculous 25-0 run, sending the Wizards to a 6-6 record.
Washington got off to a hot shooting start thanks to three straight Bradley Beal 3-pointers. The Hornets responded by shooting 4 of 6 from beyond the arc as a team. Charlotte ended the first quarter on an 8-0 run against the Washington reserves to take a 28-24 lead at the end of the first quarter.
