On to Indiana
Caron Butler did not practice today but did go through some light shooting drills and will be a game-time decision for tomorrow night's game against the Pacers, a team that is going down faster than the Titanic. Indy plays at Minnesota tonight and needs a win to avoid a 10-game losing streak. Amazingly, the Pacers are still very much alive in the playoff race. Going into tonight's game, the Pacers are in seventh place, a half game up on the (sort of) streaking Knicks.
Here's how long the NBA season can feel for a beat writer: the Wizards beat the Pacers at Verizon back on Nov. 8 and I can't remember a single detail from that game.
As for the Wizards, they simply need to carry over some of the good things they did Sunday into tonight, fly home, and get two days off before playing the Hornets at Verizon Center on Saturday night. The amazing thing about Sunday is that, had they won, the Wizards would be feeling really good right about themselves right now. That's what a single win or loss can change for a team. They need this one tomorrow night.
