Devin Brown vs. Gilbert Arenas

Why it's key: Wizards point guard Gilbert Arenas is the NBA's second-leading scorer at 30.2 points per game. He's scored 30 points or more 18 times this season and the Wizards are 16-2 in those games.

What Brown must do: Play great defense and be physical with Arenas. It's almost impossible for defenders to stop Arenas from getting to the basket because of his quickness. Brown can't allow Arenas to shoot from the outside either because he's made more 3s than anyone else in the NBA.

What Arenas must do: If he is relentless in attacking the Hornets, the Wizards have a good chance to win. If he can do that while getting his teammates involved, the Wizards have a great chance.
