Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Just when it looked like they might be ready to turn their season around, the Washington Wizards humiliated themselves.

Washington was outscored 31-8 in the second quarter and never challenged thereafter, suffering a 118-85 blowout loss to the Charlotte Hornets, who continued to flourish on their home floor.

Shooting for their first three-game winning streak of the season and fourth triumph in five games after a dismal 1-7 start, the Wizards trailed 32-24 after one quarter before an embarrassing second-quarter performance.

In the period, Washington shot 4-of-22 from the floor, committed 12 turnovers and 11 fouls and allowed Charlotte to knock down 12-of-23 shots. The eight points were the Wizards' least in one quarter since scoring a franchise-low seven against Golden State on February 6, 1994.

"We just fell apart tonight," Wizards coach Gar Heard said. "We've got a veteran team but the bench didn't pick it up for us. In the second quarter, we missed a lot of baskets. Unfortunately, we're having bad quarters and we've got to figure out a way to get it done. We play tomorrow and tonight is forgotten."

The Hornets held a commanding 63-32 lead at the half and scored five straight points to start the third period, flushing any hopes Washington may have had with an early run.

Combined with its 10-0 run at the end of the first quarter, Charlotte outscored Washington, 46-8, over a 17-minute span.

"We did a lot of great things out there tonight," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said.

The lowest moment of the contest came midway through the fourth quarter when Washington forward Jahidi White went up for an uncontested dunk and never made it over the rim. White came down with the ball and was called for traveling.

Elden Campbell scored 19 points to lead seven players in double figures for the Hornets, who improved to a 7-1 at home, the best mark in the Eastern Conference. Charlotte's lone loss here came on Saturday in overtime to the potent Portland Trail Blazers.

The Wizards were denied their first three-game winning streak since February 18-21 and have scored 100 points just once in their last nine games.

The victory margin was the largest of the season for Charlotte, which has won three of the last four meetings from Washington. The 118 points also were a season high for the Hornets, who had a 117-111 win over Milwaukee on November 10.

Rod Strickland had 11 points and 10 assists and gave the Wizards a 20-16 lead on a layup with 4:16 left in the first quarter.

"We didn't get it done tonight," Strickland said. "They came out with that half-court trap in the second quarter and that just killed us. We rushed things offensively and really got out of sync. We have to try to learn from this and put it behind us. The good thing about this league is we get to play again tomorrow."

Campbell hit a 15-footer and two free throws to forge a 20-20 tie but White's short jumper gave Washington its last lead of the night, 24-22, with 2:21 remaining in the period.

Todd Fuller and David Wesley made back-to-back layups, Bobby Phills drained a 3-pointer, Fuller hit a 14-footer and Anthony Mason made a free throw to give Charlotte a 32-24 lead entering the second quarter.

Hornets forward Ricky Davis made his first appearance after missing the start of the season while recovering from knee surgery. He scored 15 points and fellow reserve Brad Miller came off the bench to collect 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Hornets, who shot 49 percent (44-of-89) and held a 43-42 edge on the boards.

"I tried to bring some energy to the team and get fired up," Davis said. "We had a lot of success with our pressure. We mixed it up with some full-court and some half-court. We're starting to come together as a team."

Davis' thunderous dunk and 17-footer opened the second quarter and the Hornets reeled off 10 more points to complete a 20-0 run that made it 42-24 with 6:06 remaining in the half.

Rookie Richard Hamilton led Washington with 16 points and Juwan Howard and Ritchmond added 10 apiece.

"They made a run and kept the momentum flowing and that's all she wrote," Howard said. "We can't sulk about this. It's just one game. We still play them three more times."

Davis had a driving layup and Miller made two free throws to bring a merciful end to the second quarter with Charlotte holding a commanding 31-point lead.
