Hornets forward Desmond Mason scored a season-low one point Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks, laboring through fatigue, a sore knee and slightly pulled groin. Mason has been the team's primary option on both ends of the floor and they desperately need him tonight. How will he respond?
•Something's gotta give:
The Hornets average the fewest points in the league at 89.8 per game, three points fewer than the second-lowest scoring team. The Wizards are the NBA's second-highest scoring team at 108.2 points per game.
