Wizards Insider: April 13, 2008 - April 19, 2008

Cavs do it again

From where I sit, the Wizards lost this game with that brutal stretch of the fourth period when they missed 11 straights and failed to take advantage of the fact that the Cavs were in the penalty. The game really could have turned when Antawn Jamison (23 points, 19...

This is some good hate!

Wow! Now this is some good old-fashioned playoff hatred. These teams hate one another. The way it should be. So far, we've seen Andray Blatche inadvertently clock LeBron James across the face (no call) and James roll around on the ground like a soccer player, James respond by semi-intentionally...

Game 1

Well, I can say this for sure: DeShawn Stevenson is the most hated man in Cleveland. He's already hearing it. A couple of the Wiz went to the mall yesterday and ran into Cavs fans who were looking for DeShawn. Rookie Dominic McGuire: "This dude came up to me...

Predictions

My prediction on the series will run in tomorrow's paper along with an in-depth preview. Here are key factors I took into consideration when making my pick (which was very difficult. I went back and forth several times): -Gilbert Arenas only played five games at the end of the...

Butler back

If the Wizards are going to knock off the Cavs in this first-round series, they'll need Caron Butler to be a major factor. He missed the last three games of the regular season with a bruised right knee but was back on the court today and will go Saturay...

Big 3 sitting, DeShawn speaks and AD kills my shirt

Those of you hoping that Coach Eddie Jordan would sit his main guys tonight against Orlando and turn the game over to the youngsters are getting your wish. Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison will sit tonight. Butler said he still has some stiffness and soreness in his...

Western Conference Playoff Scenarios

The Eastern Conference playoff picture was determined on Monday - thanks to the Cavaliers' early Christmas gift in the town that booed Santa Claus - but the West is really a mess heading into the regular season finale tonight. The Lakers and Hornets wrapped up the top two seeds last...

Barkley: Wizards "Dumbest Team In History"

Charles Barkley has never been one to hold his tongue. And during TNT's NBA Playoff conference call yesterday, the opinionated analyst called out the Washington Wizards for their pre-playoff trash talk. DeShawn Stevenson fired the first missile when he called LeBron James "overrated," then Gilbert Arenas begged for the Cavaliers...

Tuesday update

-A few final thoughts on last night's wild finish in two cities: I know LeBron James is the man and all but does he really get three steps and a stumble before making a pass? Really? -That was a foul by Samuel Dalembert on Devin Brown, no question and...

The Shove That Shook The East

PHILADELPHIA - While the Washington Wizards managed to win on Monday without Agent Zero, the Cleveland Cavaliers pilfered a win in Philadelphia with the help of The Big Z Hero. Zydrunas Ilgauskas's left elbow did more than send Samuel Dalembert stumbling into Devin Brown in the final second of the...

Arenas and Butler out

Gilbert Arenas will be held out of tonight's game against Indy as a precautionary measure to rest his surgically repaired left knee. Caron Butler will miss his second straight game with a bruised right knee. I chatted with Antonio Daniels a bit before the game and he said that...

Monday update

Neither Caron Butler (right knee bruise) nor Gilbert Arenas participated in this morning's shootaround and it's possible that both could miss tonight's game against Indiana. Arenas, who was brilliant in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over Philly, would be held out for precautionary reasons. The Wizards are locked...
