Wizards' Bradley Beal will miss second half with a sprained left wrist.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams 0-of-4, 0-of-2 from 3-point range.

As Diaw and Vukevic demonstrated last season, Big Al has more trouble with the beefy guys than the leapers.

Rick Bonnell

DuJuan Blair taking it to Big Al in the post right now.

Rick Bonnell

Second airball for Big Al on baseline jumper.

Rick Bonnell

Glen Rice Jr., fouls Jannero Pargo from the 3-point line. Bad, bad judgment on that one.

Rick Bonnell

Teeny-tiny backcourt right now with Brian Roberts and Jannero Pargo.

Jannero Pargo about to make his first preseason appearance.

Cody Zeller does a stretch-four thing, hits a 20-footer.

Neal also had 2 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal that quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets led 28-17 end of first. Gary Neal has 13 points and has made three of four 3-pointers.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets hold Wizards to 17 points and 5-of-20 shooting 1st quarter. Sounds like Clifford made his point Thursday about caring about defense.

Neal has 11 points in 10 minutes.

Rick Bonnell

Hairston's second foul.

Rick Bonnell

Back-to-back 3s from P.J.

Then the rook answers with a 3 from Kemba.

Paul Pierce immediately draws a shooting foul off P.J. Hairston. Welcome to the show, rook.

Al Jefferson took a 10-foot baseline jumper. Unfortunately it traveled 12 feet.

Rick Bonnell

Neal with eight of the Hornets' first 14 points.

Rick Bonnell

Gary Neal with a 3-pointer and a feed of Al Jefferson early. He's clearly having the best Hornets preseason so far.

Update on Hornets guard Lance Stephenson's toe injury: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said Stephenson will hopefully be back for Sunday's practice. He has a deep cut on a small toe.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson has a cut on his small toe that will keep him out of tonight's exhibition against the Wizards.

Rick Bonnell

I hear Lance Stephenson is out tonight with some sort of toe issue.

Rick Bonnell

Headed to Greenville for Hornets-Wizards. Quite curious how Hornets will perform defensively after how bad they were in Philly Wednesday.

Rick Bonnell

Improved 3-point shooting was a Hornets imperative: charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/09/523…

Bismack Biyombo

You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life!!

Who could have imagined this? A lopsided Thursday Night game.
