Wizards Insider: April 6, 2008 - April 12, 2008

Key fourth quarter

A terrific fourth quarter that featured crisp passing and some great defense (and poor Philadelphia offense) were the keys to a 109-93 win over the 76ers tonight. The Wizards, who ensured that they can finish no lower than 6th with tonight's win, outscored Philly 31-9 in the fourth. -Gilbert...

Arenas Finally Speaks - On His Blog

Gilbert Arenas is done talking to reporters until next season - or so he says in his latest blog entry on NBA.com. We'll see how long that really lasts. Arenas's reasoning is that reporters don't have anything new to ask and he doesn't have anything new to say. "When people...

Wiz-Cs Part IV

Big game tonight at Verizon Center - for the Wizards at least - with the Boston Celtics in town. Antawn Jamison participated in the morning shootaround today and will start. There won't be a dramatic, Arenas-like entrance. He won't come in wearing a sling on his arm, rip it off...

The Old Guys Might Not Be Ready To Stop

LOS ANGELES - The last time I spoke with Houston Rockets center Dikembe Mutombo in January, he was done. Finished. Ready to call it a career. Back then, he was a role player whose primary role was to clap his hands and root on his teammates from the bench. He...
