Defense Lacking in Barcelona
After giving up 39 first quarter points in Tuesday's loss in Berlin, the Wizards were outscored 32-17 in the opening frame tonight here in Barcelona. On Tuesday, Chris Paul and company gave the Wiz fits with the pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop game. Tonight, the Hornets created open shot after open shot with crisp ball movement. Washington's rotations have been slow and as a result, the Wizards are down again.
The decision to start JaVale McGee was made after Coach Eddie Jordan met with reporters so I don't have an explanation but I'll get one after the game.
-Sitting courtside here at Palau San Jordi: star teenage point guard Ricky Rubio, French soccer star Henri and former GW star Pops Mensah-Bonsu (I covered the Colonials for a season and really came to like Pops. Good dude. He's playing over here somewhere. I'll chat with him when I get a chance).
