Wizards head coach Randy Wittman constantly talks about the lack of consistent effort he gets from his basketball team, yet here he is heading for the locker room prematurely, as Washington fell 103-101 to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.
Much to do about nothing? Probably. Coming from a bitter Wizards fan? Yes. Point being, though — practice what you preach, dude.
Fire up the buses. Let’s starting creating hashtags for #Calipari2DC or #DAntoni2DC, and then follow them up with #ThatWouldCostMoneySoKeepDreaming.
Noooooo, Nene! Don’t reach for it!
Too late. DeMarcus Cousins put the Sactown Boogie on the Wizards big man, and Nene knew as soon as the bucket went down how bad he looked — dramatically hanging his head in embarrassment.
The Wizards would go on to lose by 23 to the Kings.
The Wizards snapped their five-game win streak on Friday night, falling 113-99 to a fire-shooting Clippers team in Los Angeles.
But John Wall was sure to leave us with a lasting bucket — one that may contend for layup of the year. And one that left Matt Barnes frozen in space.
If you’re ever fortunate enough to nab tickets to an NBA game where the seats are only TWO FRICKIN’ ROWS behind the bench, do yourself a favor and leave your mobile device in your pocket. Soak up the scene, listen to the trash talk; take it all in as one of the best live sporting experiences available.
If not, stuff like this happens.
On a scale from 1 to 10, what are we grading the effort made by husband, stage left, wearing the obvious orange shirt in a sea of blue and teal?
Count the dribbles it takes to get from one end of the floor to the other.
Russell Westbrook is more than likely not human.
Also, the mutant accounted for 40 percent of the Thunder’s points, 30 percent of their rebounds, and 53 percent of their assists in a 123-118 overtime victory against the Sixers on a wild Wednesday night in the NBA.
A sad story really.
In a tie game between the Clippers and Blazers with just under three seconds to go, Los Angeles stud muffin Chris Paul makes a great drive to the basket and shoots a shot that barely rims out. The giant of a man DeAndre Jordan comes down with a rebound, seemingly in perfect position to score the game-winning shot from about two inches away before the final buzzer.
In Jordan’s defense, there was a buzzer that sounded, but it was the shot clock (you silly goose!). The game would then go into overtime thanks to Jordan’s blunder, and the Clippers ultimately lost 98-93.
And CP3 was for real freakin’ out too. And that ref in the background — yeesh. It looked like he was witnessing a slow-motion car wreck.
Shake it off, DJ.
- When the ball was inbounded, there were 1.7 seconds on the shot clock, and 2.8 seconds left on the game clock. (back)
Just gonna leave this right here…
Hey! Don’t look now, but the Wizards are melting!
They’ve lost 12 of their last 15 games and have slipped to fifth in the East, with Milwaukee nipping at their heels.
Also, in their 97-92 loss to the Bulls (who were without Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, AND Taj Gibson) on Tuesday, Otto Porter appeared to be growing roots as a result of severe wandering eye before eventually coming out of his mid-game trip and realizing he’s playing a basketball game.
The Wizards host Miami on Friday.
Thank you, Jusuf Nurkic. This technical foul was very much worth it.
