Wizards (15-49) vs. Hornets (39-23)
Wizards starters: Mike James, Caron Butler, Darius Songaila, Antawn Jamison, Dominic McGuire.
Hornets: Chris Paul, Rasual Butler, Tyson Chandler, David West, Julian West.
Refs:Bob Delaney, Tommy Nunez Jr., Joe Forte.
Line: Hornets 8.
-Mike James returns after missing Monday's win at Minnesota with the flu.
-Peja Stojakovic and Sean Marks are out for the Hornets.
-The obvious problem for the Wizards tonight is Chris Paul in the pick-and-roll game. He's a beast for everyone but especially for a team like the WIzards who don't have a point guard nearly quick enough to stay with him and they don't rotate well defensively.
Paul chewed them up with16 assists and 15 points in a 97-85 win in New Orleans on Dec. 30 and I have hard time seeing a vastly different outcome tonight. Peja being out helps some however but he was 4 of 14 and 1 of 9 from 3-point range in that first game and the Hornets still won.
-Nick Young has been in one of funks again - one of those where he misses his first shot or two and goes into the tank mentally -but he's trying to get out of it. In the locker room before the game, Gilbert Arenas rolled up to Young's locker and challenged him to a game of one-on-one.
Arenas: "The way you're playing right now, you don't want any part of me."
Young, who took up the challenge, countered with: "I'm going to bust your (butt) and get my confidence back."
