Wizards Insider: December 17, 2006 - December 23, 2006

Escape from Denver...

Wow, what a night that was. Gilbert went off again and Caron Butler just keeps doing his tough juice thing. Big, big win. Unfortunately, I'm just now getting out of snowy Denver. Couldn't get a flight to Phoenix yesterday and can't get on back to DC from here so...

Wiz win

That was a solid performance by the boys in blue tonight. The big three came to play, Brendan Haywood gave some solid minutes in the post and they came away from one of the toughest venues (trust me, Sacramento is one of the hardestt places to play in the...

Wiz rolling

Well, I told you faithful blog readers that this was a Wiz kid of game at halftime and right now, the boys are handling business. Jamison is making his threes and in a way, that is the most telling thing about this team on a given night. When the...

A Wiz kind of game

It's halftime and the Wiz are down but the way this game is going, you have to like their chances of getting out of this with a win. It's up and down and Gilbert, Antawn and Caron are all getting the kind of looks they like. The problem is...

Wiz down early

Here's the problem when you are an NBA beat writer who happens to be hundreds of miles away from your team: a cat like DeShawn Stevenson decides to cut his dreads and you aren't there to get the scoop. I mean, that's serious stuff right there. The man grows...

The Biz on the Wiz

I made it out of the hotel thanks to some snowshoes and made my way through the snow-packed Denver streets to a little slice of heaven called Sports Column, a cool sports bar that sits directly across the street from Coors Field. If you think a little thing like...

Snowed in

Well, I'm not going to make it to Sacramento for tonight's game against the Kings and I may not get to Phoenix for tomorrow night's game against the Suns either. Denver got hit with a blizzard and the entire city is locked down. The airport won't open until noon...

Waiting on AI

Well, the plan was to stay here in Denver and catch Allen Iverson's first night with the Nuggets. Plus, the Phoenix Suns and they're 15-game win streak are in town so the potential buzz around an Iverson/Nash matchup would have made for a great story. One problem: mother nature...

New night, different town, different story

Well, if you were one of those cynical Wiz fans who thought your team would come out a little flat tonight against the Carmelo-less Nuggets following Sunday night's thriller in Los Angeles, you were right. The first quarter told the story of this one: Denver 36, Wizards 16. The...

Agent Zero goes for 60

Wow, I'm sitting here inside an empty Staples Center and I can still feel energy surging throug the place. Made deadline but not sure how the heck I captured this one in print. If you don't know by now, Gilbert Arenas dropped a franchise-record 60 points in a 147-141...
