GAME RECAP

Glen Rice scored 24 points and Anthony Mason had 21 and 13 rebounds as the Charlotte Hornets won their fourth consecutive game in Washington, stopping the Wizards, 107-92.

David Wesley recorded 15 points and nine assists for the Hornets, who have won six of their last seven games at Washington and 10 of the last 13 meetings with the Wizards. Charlotte has taken its last three games after opening the season with consecutive losses.

Vlade Divac had 15 points and 10 rebounds, making 6-of-7 shots from the field and all three of his free throws for the Hornets. Matt Geiger contributed 11 points and 11 rebounds off the bench for Charlotte, which shot 51 percent (39-for-77) from the floor.

"The guys came together and were unified," said Hornets coach Dave Cowens. "This team likes to take on a challenge. It was an excellent game game from our two big guys (Mason and Divac). They played hard on every possession."

Wesley's jumper with 2:20 left in the second quarter started a 12-3 run that put the Hornets ahead at halftime, 53-46. Wesley and Mason each had three points during the run and Charlotte never relinquished the lead in the second half.

Chris Webber scored 24 points and Rod Strickland added 19 for Washington, which has lost both of its home games this season.

"Across the board, we did not do the hustle things you need to do to win," said Washington coach Bernie Bickerstaff. "Rebounding is about wanting it. There's no art to it -- if you want it, you get it. We didn't want it. Again, the difference in the game was the hustle things, they ran the whole game and we didn't. We need to be consistent."

Before the game, the Hornets traded guards Muggsy Bogues and Tony Delk to the Golden State Warriors for point guard B.J. Armstrong.

"It's tough," Rice said of the trade. "Muggsy definitely was a leader. He was always trying to keep everyone positive. But this is a business and it's something you have to be prepared for."

Webber opened the third quarter with a jumper to cut Charlotte's lead to 53-48, but Mason answered with a basket to trigger a 9-0 burst. Rice's three-pointer capped the run for a 62-48 lead with 9:43 left in the period. Rice converted a three-point play as the Hornets stretched the lead to 72-51 with seven minutes to go. Charlotte opened its biggest lead when Wesley's 18-footer made it 78-55 with 4:37 remaining in the third.

"We kept running tonght and made them feel the pressure," Mason said. "As a team we played hard all 48 minutes, I think. We controlled the ball very, very good, especially during the run."

"We came out and played very aggressive and wanted and got an up-tempo game," Rice added. "By far, this was defensively our best game yet. There was a lot of energy out there. The only thing we didn't do well was rebounding, but that will come in time."

Juwan Howard, who had 13 points, made the first field goal of the fourth period to cut Washington's deficit to 81-71. But the Hornets could not draw any closer.

Wesley made a pair of free throws to cap an 8-0 surge and give Charlotte an 89-71 lead with 9:40 left.
