Butler Update, Lottery Bowl II

Caron Butler, who is traveling with the team on its four-game road trip, did not play last night and will be a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Butler has been bothered by tightness in his hamstring all month.

As for tonight, Wiz fans have to be conflicted. A loss means you are even worse than the dreadful Clippers while a win only hurts your lottery odds. The Clippers did their part last night with a close loss to the Golden State Warriors.

I just want to see how Javale fairs against Camby, his counter-part more or less.

Camby will eat McGee for lunch if he plays hard. But the good news (?) is that he hates his coach and situation so much that it is not a given he will do so.

This is probably the most exciting, and could be the most telling, game all year. Dumbleavy will do anything in his power to blow the game, but I think the Wizards late game "execution" will prevail.

So it's a meeting of 2 teams that don't want to win. Should be "must see tv". If it wasn't on a west coast start time, I would watch. But instead, I'll do my taxes. Should be about the same amount of pain.

At least there's the possibility of getting refund back when you finish your taxes. The time spent watching this game is time you'll never get back.

I'm going to the game, baby!!! 2nd row seats!!! They cost about.0001 of what those exact seats would cost at the Laker game, but at least I have a chance to see a win.

IN FACT, if the Wiz win tonight that would make them 2-0 in games I've gone to this year (other was over the holidays vs the Thunder).

Hey Wittan, why stop there?

Do like the late, great Robin Harris did and wear your basketball shoes. Maybe you'll get on the bench with the team and into the game...

Watch JaVale.. he's going to be good. guaranteed.

You play to win (which is why Caron apparently wants to play this one). Let the ping pong balls drop whichever way they will.

And let's see some more Pech -- 13 points in 18 minutes (even garbage time) is not to be sneezed at.
