WASHINGTON - John Wall put on a rare shooting show Friday night, scoring a season-high 29 points and matching his career high with three 3-pointers as the Washington Wizards ran their home winning streak to four with a 96-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets.

Wall went 12 for 15 from the field, including 3 for 3 from 3-point range, displaying an outside touch that's been mostly absent since he was chosen No. 1 overall in the 2010 draft. He entered Friday's game just 3 for 20 from 3-point range for the season, and he was a mere 3 for 42 last season.

Eric Gordon scored 20 points for the Hornets, who have lost five straight on the road and five of six overall.
