=== New Orleans Hornets Team Report – December 13 ===

(Sports Network) – The New Orleans Hornets dropped an 88-69 decision to the
Washington Wizards on Sunday at the MCI Center.

Dan Dickau and Junior Harrington both netted 14 points for the struggling
Hornets, who have dropped 10 in a row and 18 of their first 19 games of the
young season. P.J. Brown chipped in 13 points and 10 boards in a losing
effort.

The Hornets’ lone win this season came at the expense of the Utah Jazz back on
November 22.

Prior to Sunday’s game, New Orleans placed forward David West on the injured
list. The Hornets also signed free-agent Lonny Baxter to take West’s roster
spot.

Dickau has scored in double-digits in four straight games. He is averaging
15.8 points, two rebounds and two assists in that span.

The Hornets are off until Tuesday when they visit the expansion Charlotte
Bobcats. It will be the first-ever meeting between the two squads.
