Wizards Insider: November 11, 2007 - November 17, 2007

Three in a row

The Wizards did what playoff teams and would-be conference contenders are supposed to do tonight: they beat a bad team with a good start and a great finish. The Wizards (3-5 now after three straight wins) put it away with a 14-3 fourth quarter run that was a thing...

Two in a row

Wizards 103, Pacers 90 That was the most complete performance this Wizards team has turned in since late last season. From start to finish, they played with energy, they moved the ball and they played solid defense. Caron Butler was a monster early and Brendan Haywood stacked up another...

O'Neal: "Not Really Enjoying It"

Jermaine O'Neal can't get up like he used to. The Indiana Pacers' 6-foot-11 all-star forward would elevate so high and lift his right arm even higher to release his jumper, making it virtually impossible for an opponent to reject it. But on more than one occasion this season, O'Neal has...

Live from Verizon Center

I just arrived here at the arena for tonight's game against the Indiana Pacers, a team that won its first three but has since dropped four straight, including a home game last night to the Boston Celtics. If you read my story in today's paper (and I know you...

Back in the mix

Sorry for the lack of posts the last two days but my trusty computer, a companion that has made numerous road trips, filed hundreds of pieces on deadline, avoided countless cups of joe and posted thousands of blog posts for your reading pleasure (or, displeasure depending on the post)...

Finally a win

The word of the day was passion. The Wizards played with plenty. The Atlanta Hawks and their fans (Philips Arena was maybe half full and mostly quiet all afternoon) had none. The combination led to Washington's first win of the season and perhaps showed Eddie Jordan's team what it...

Live from Atlanta

Gilbert Arenas will be in the starting lineup today against the Atlanta Hawks. I spoke with Eddie Jordan before the game and he said he stressed to his team the need to play the way they did early on in New Jersey the other night: move the ball, set...
