Wizards Insider: March 16, 2008 - March 22, 2008

Wiz move up to 5th (for now)

At one point during the fourth quarter, the Miami Heat had five guys on the court who were playing in the D-League earlier this month. That's amazing. It would also explain why American Airlines Arena was maybe half full tonight. (But the Miami Heat dancers were in the house...

Wiz at Heat

This is one the Wizards must win. Miami will take the floor with a D-League team tonight (no D-Wade, no Mourning, no Shawn Marion and even no Pat Riley, who is scouting). Rookie Nick Young is out with right thigh bruise for the Wizards. I just heard about that...

NBA's March Madness Good Enough For Me

I usually find myself sitting alone this time of year. I know most fans are caught up in the NCAA Tournament, but I'm not in any pool and I haven't filled out a bracket in almost 10 years. I know somewhere, somebody is already balling up their bracket and preparing...

A win is a win, Soulja Boy a Wiz fan?

It was an ugly, disjointed, poorly-officiated game with no flow but the Wizards emerged with a 87-86 win over the Orlando Magic and they won't be saying sorry. The game's deciding play was fitting. Hedo Turkoglu, who scored a career-high 39 points and made seven three-pointers, drove left past...

Wizards at Magic, more Gilbert

Is tonight a playoff preview? I guess we'll find out after the Wizards get back from next week's brutal West Coast trip but we pretty much can count on the Orlando Magic staying in third-place. I arrived at the arena early (the hotel is right across the street) and...

Bibby Points To End Of Hawks' Misery

He hit the court wearing a silly little headband and some leg-warmer thingies around his calves that made him look like a reject from an '80s workout video, but Atlanta Hawks point guard Mike Bibby was no joke on Monday, as he knocked down five three-pointers and scored 23 points...

Cavs Still Seek Identity Since Trade

I had a short conversation with Rasheed Wallace a few weeks ago and I asked him what he thought about the trade deadline deal the Cleveland Cavaliers had swung a days before to get Ben Wallace, Wally Szczerbiak, Delonte West and Joe Smith. Rasheed Wallace curled his lips and shrugged...

Tuesday update

The defense the Wizards played against the Hawks last night isn't going to get it done. Buckets came way to easy for Mike Bibby and crew and it seemed as though the Wizards thought they could just clamp down and win in the fourth quarter becuase the Hawks are...

Hawks at Wiz, Arenas update II

Brendan Haywood, who missed Saturday's game with a sore left knee, will start tonight against the Hawks. All other hands on deck as well (except for Gilbert Arenas and Etan Thomas). The MRI exam Arenas had on his left knee today revealed that the knee is healing. What that...

Jamison honored, injury update

As crazy as it sounds given his amazingly consistent production this season, Antawn Jamison is sometimes overlooked. Not today. The all star forward was named Eastern Conference player of the week. The Wiz went 3-0 and Jamison helped make it happen by averaging 25.3 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.9...

LeBron Responds To DeShawn

If you weren't rooting for another Washington-Cleveland first round playoff series, you should now. Not only because it looks more and more like it's going to happen - Toronto lost again last night without Chris Bosh and is a half-game ahead of the Wizards for the fifth seed in the...

Sunday update

Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan gave his players the day off. I wish I could say the same for beat writers but I'm writing for tomorrow and the blog must be updated. A few things left over from last night's strange 119-109 home win over the Clippers (who reminded everyone...
