Wizards (2-5) at Heat (5-1) [UPDATED]

Wizards starters: Gilbert Arenas, DeShawn Stevenson Caron Butler, Andray Blatche, Brendan Haywood

Heat: Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Quentin Richardson, Michael Beasley, Jermaine O'Neal

Line: Heat by 9 ½

An hour before tipoff, the Wizards announced that Gilbert Arenas was going to miss his first game of season because of a strained left calf muscle. But just moments before starters were called, the Wizards informed the Heat public address announcer that Arenas was playing -- and starting. It was a surprising about face that even startled members of the coaching staff. Talk about a game-time decision.

Arenas worked out with teammates before the game, shooting jumpers while wearing some protective tights. Tim Grover, the famed trainer who worked closely with Arenas all summer, flew in last night and monitored Arenas's movements. Grover was also in town to visit with his other client, Dwyane Wade, but he spoke with Arenas before the game.

DeShawn Stevenson, who started at shooting guard in place of Randy Foye, noticed Arenas's get up before the game and said, "You the man in black, huh? Black shoes, black shorts. . ."

"Black drawls. Black tights," Arenas joked back.

A few minutes later, Arenas was on the training table getting treatment on his calf from head athletic trainer Eric Waters. Arenas is averaging 24.4 points and 5.6 assists, but Coach Flip Saunders said before the game that the Wizards didn't want to take any chances with him given his struggles to stay healthy the past two seasons. They definitely need to be cautious since his problem is with the same leg that has kept him sidelined.

Although Arenas returned, Saunders still had to use his fifth different starting lineup in eight games. With Stevenson starting, he was forced to give Andray Blatche his first start of the season.

"It's a combination. Getting a little bit more scoring and we haven't been getting off to good starts," Saunders said. "We have to get off to a better start. Try not to play as much from behind."

Saunders was asked about the last time he had to do so much lineup shuffling. He said, "About 20 years ago when I was in the CBA."

With the Miami dancers rehearsing nearby, I asked Saunders if he felt like he was back in the CBA. "The music is not as loud," Saunders joked.

Brendan Haywood was not among the 12 players listed on the all-star ballot this season, but he certainly wasn't going to cry over getting snubbed. "Doesn't the all-star ballot go off what you did last year? I didn't play last year," Haywood said.

When reminded that Arenas didn't play last year, Haywood said, "His body of work is better than mine. He's a three-time all-star. It's about your body of work. I don't worry about it. What are we 2-5? I'd look like an idiot if I talked about how I really want to be on the all-star ballot wouldn't I? Let's worry about correcting what's wrong with the team and that type of stuff normally takes care of itself."

Javaris Crittenton said he may removed the boot on his left foot some time next week. At that time, Crittenton said, he will start running. Crittenton had exploratory surgery two weeks ago and is expected to rehab for another four weeks. Crittenton has been able to ride a bike and work on the elliptical machine, but he said he hasn't gained any weight since he was sidelined nearly six weeks ago. "I was 206 then, I'm 206 now," he said.

If there is anything to feel positive about this game, it's that Randy Foye had one of the best games of his career against the Miami Heat last season. "I always think about that game last year. I know them stats in the back of my head," said Foye, who scored 14 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter of a Minnesota loss to Dwyane Wade and the Heat. Wade finished with 31.

Amazing how much difference one game makes. The team looks much better when they share the ball and show PATIENCE on offense. Gil's assist total doesn't even begin to tell the story about the effort he's making to keep the ball moving. And Blatche is a passing MACHINE tonight.

Nice first half.

The last 3 or 4 games, Gil looks weird. IDK if its the calf or what but he’s playing at a much slower overall speed than he was in the first 3 games of the year. Anyone else notice that? I can even hear Flip yell at him at times about picking up the pace. I hope he gets his speed back in this game or the next.

It also will be interesting to see what happeneds if Foye cant go. Im guessing that Flip will take out Deshawn with like 3min left in the quarter and put in Young so Deshawn can then come back in when Gil sits and play the point

Gil looks like he cant move at all. He looks even slower than he was last year with the injury. He looks so limited. Its crazy. I hope its just the calf and not the knee and I hope he gets his speed & burst back soon. He was alright in the first 3 games but since then his pace has been horrible and his speed is so slow that it makes it seem like he's overweight. Thats why he's having all the turnovers. You cant play this game at half speed

Under 2 min left....Heat have 12 turnovers for the game...Gil, all by himself, has 12 turnovers for the game. Don't think in my history of watchin NBA I have ever seen that. He may need to take a leave of absence like AI did....

Who is that guy that keep talking about point guard play? Why? What? Where is he at?

Even with all the injuries, point guard play is probably the biggest archilles heal so far this season.

To play so well and to blow it on not taking care of ball/turnovers.

Sometimes the smallest things can be your undoing.

A different point altogether. Besides Doms hustle, I like the fact that when he shoots, he might miss, but he shoots with an attitude and he dosen't second guess himself.

If Butler, DSteve and Blatche had his attitude about shooting...well hope is eternal.

Those of you out there that still think Gilbert is a point guard please feel free to stand up.

111 Million to throw the ball to the other team?!? Stevenson jacking up 3's during the last 3 mins of a game?!?

I was so pissed at the garbage that I just witnessed that I can't go to sleep.

Arenas is NOT a point guard. Anyone on the team can drible the ball to the 3 point line and pass it to the next player that's open and apparently Arenas can't even do that well.

Here's some needed fixes: Arenas to shooting guard, Debric & Oberto exhiled to Siberia, and Blatche to start.

I need a drink.

@dlts20,

Completely agree. GA came out the gates and I was thinking this is the same player with the exception of not finishing quite as well. Since, he does look slower, hesitant, I don't know.... Look at the separation on his shots. He is getting none to very little. He used to get as open as he wanted at will.

As far as this game, great first half and then the second half was just a game of attrition. GA and the starters wearing down, making bad decisions, and the Heat get their run. No bench left with players dropping like flies. NY comes in and promptly stinks up the joint! He is terrible!

Injury bug, this team just ran out of amo in the 2nd half.

I like Haywood's defnesive play very much, he cloged up the middle and any Miami player driving had tough time to score down low. He again outplayed O'Neal. Sure O'Neal has a better +/-, but that's because he plays on the wining team, while Haywood was on the team whose PG turned the ball over 12 times!

-Good effort, but don't sustain the offense from the first half. I know they don't have the offensive horses in there, but this is getting too annoying to watch. A missed shot is better than these ridiculous turnovers bc at least then we can get back on defense.

-Great defense again, if only we could score and not turn the ball over.

The word for tonight is patience! It will take some time to pull this together but, the possibility is exciting. I was not a AJ fan last year but, I think this team is perfect for his skillset. Just don't fall too far behind that you cannot catch up. BTW -- Are the injuries a symptom of guys not in shape?

Posted by: jtrob_1 | November 10, 2009 10:43 PM | Report abuse

t may be premature, given a few recurring health issues and the fact that he hasn't played much in two years, but it is really beginning to look like Gil will not be the player he was. He keeps trying to put the team on his back, but lacks the half step and thunder he used to have to do it. One could always overlook his less-than-average PG skills because of his superior offensive output. Without it, he is merely another hot-cold jump-shooting tweener who can not lead a team.

Tonight he was awful, forcing shots, complaining about fouls he made and phantom fouls not made. He played out of control, jacking too many outside shots without his former accuracy, forcing drives he no longer has the power or speed to finish and making awful, poorly anticipated passes. I know he wants to get back to where he was, and criticism has always been motivation to improve, but he simply isn't the same player anymore and trying pretending he is is hurting the team. It's too early to judge his season, but it is beginning to look like Grunfeld's all-in, bet-the-franchise decision to re-sign Arenas after his injuries was a setback for this team. While no Allan Houston-level problem, he is also not the success story of Wade, who has demonstrated in two games against us this season what a true franchise 100 mil player should be. He still makes as much in a month as I will in my lifetime, so I don't feel too bad for him, but it appears that Agent Zero's best days - the fun and invincible ones - which promised a time that he would one day grow up and become a true franchise player, are over. Let that be a lesson to future players who feel invincible and try to diagnose and rehabilitate themselves.

Can someone at least try and bother D Wade's shot? It seems like there is no defender at times. In game 1 Gil prob was 90%, now he's probably 75% with no other offensive help. Once he can get his game legs and 'Twan/Miller return, we should be in much better shape. Need to get wins though right now. Anyone think Flip will get fired if they go 2-12? Just a thought...

Posted by: t-train | November 10, 2009 10:47 PM | Report abuse

@sagaliba,

You don't have to explain that BH completely outplayed O'Neal. Blatche completely outplayed Beasely for that matter. It's the "stars" that are left that are losing these games for us. Butler has been a turnover machine for the last couple of years and now something is just not right with GA. 12 turnovers is ridiculous. Like I said before, something has been off with him since about game 3. Does he have his legs? He has no burst, no separation, and his handle has disappeared. He has never been this turnover prone before.

Very strong first half. One of the better defensive efforts this year.

The Wizards appeared to lose focus though in the second half. They looked good in stretches, but had too many turnovers on the offensive end. Hard to believe, but for once the Wizards DEFENSE actually kept them in the game until the very end.

It seemed like there was a kind of mental block down the stretch -- more stagger than swagger. They had Miami on the ropes, but let Miami get back into the game in the 3rd quarter.

Flip needs to get the hypnotist back. No joke -- the effects of hypnosis wear off after a few weeks. The hypnotist could probably instill some swagger back into the equation and program the players to think about shutting down and closing out opponents. The stumble tonight seemed more due to mental lapses than being overawed by Miami's talent. The Wizards seem to match-up well against Miami even with the injuries.

McGuire looked great on the defensive end. He seemed to create problems for Beasley whenever he was on the court, and in one possession against D. Wade he forced a bad shot. Finally, Butler and Stevenson need to limit their 3 point attempts. I cringe whenever they lob up those looks, because it seems like it's almost the same as a turnover (Stevenson has had some good numbers for a couple years, but doesn't seem like he's found his stroke yet; Butler's career numbers from 3-point range are below average).

Hopefully Foye isn't out for extended time too. Losing him, Miller, and Jamison limits the teams game behind the arc. Many positives to take away and build on, even if the team is still a work in progress.

With no one on the floor who can hit an open J, Gil is forced to do too much. That's why the turnovers are high. Teams are doubling him and converging when he drives. With Foye, Miller and Jamison out and Young not getting any PT, who is he supposed to pass to that's gonna hit an open J? Oberto didn't even attempt a shot. Stevenson is a waste. Just can't understand why McGee and Young can't get more than garbage time or no time at all. Geez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SammyT1,

Arenas is shooting over 40 percent from 3 point range on the season and 42 percent from the field otherwise. He looked fine in the first half.

My recollection is that Arenas was teamed up with Dom, Oberto, Blatche, and Stevenson for one stretch of game time. Under those circumstances, odds are he's the one that's going to be taking most of the shots. I didn't have a big problem with Arenas's shot selection tonight -- the main issue was turnovers and the uncharacteristic misses from the line.

The sequence to close out the first quarter too was extremely well-executed (e.g. making sure to get an extra possession and then sinking the final shot to close out the quarter). He may have lost a fifth of a step, and it doesn't seem like he has the same elevation when he attacks the basket, but he looks like a smarter player on the court than in the past.

When problems happen on offense they seem to come down to timing, flow, and familiarity at this point. This issue isn't limited to when Gil is on the court. The team seems to be in flow for stretches, and then it seems to slip out of rhythm at times.

Posted by: JPRS | November 10, 2009 11:24 PM | Report abuse

SammyT1,

Yeah you are a bit premature. As bad as Gilbert looks now, he hasn't lost it. That play when he took Dwade to the basket and got fouled he made it look so smooth and easy. He also new that in his best that DWade could always keep up but he still controlled the ball all the way to the basket and drew a foul on DWade and almost made the basket.

In the past when Gilbert always had someone with him to help handle the ball. Also on top of that, he was not responsible for and did not concentrate on setting his team up.

In Flips offense the point play is crucial. Right now Gilbert and the entire Team are pissed. They know they are better. The difference between this year and last is THEY CAN AND WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Well, if no one gets hurt between now and Saturday, they'll have their old starting line-up in tact for the first time this season.

I think Gil lost too much weight in order to preserve the knee. Wade put on a lot of muscle under Grover. Gil doesn't seem to have the strength and lift to hold on to the ball often when he drives to the basket.

I think we can finally say that Blatche has turned the corner. His outside shop is much improved. If he could just put on some muscle, he'll be even better. He actually is developing into our best post player.

Posted by: ptp23 | November 10, 2009 11:40 PM | Report abuse

Arenas is trying to do too much and it's not entirely his fault. On several possessions he tried to move the ball around only to have teammates pass up shots and end up swinging the ball back to him with the clock running down 20+ feet from the basket. He really had no choice but to jack it up. Without space to maneuver in the lane, Arenas can't use penetration to draw the defense in and kick out to his teammates. Everything's perimeter. Without Jamison out there to space the floor by pulling an opposing big man out of the lane, defense is packed in to cut off Arenas's drives and force the outside shot. Contrast that to Miami, who has O'Neal, Beasley, and Haslem at the 4/5, all of who can hit the midrange jumper (or beyond). That creates driving lanes for Wade to get to the basket.

On a different note . . . saw Wade's post game interview. The entire time all he talked about was how bothered he was by Nick Young's length.

Just looked at the team stats. That's pretty amazing for this team: Top 8 in FG percentage; 12th in points (they're basically just above average -- not much difference between 12 and 16).

That's good news.

The offensive production should come in time. It's a new system with new players; the problems are compounded by injuries and only having a couple months to fit several new parts into the flow.

I thought the same thing. It was like the second half of the Atlanta game all over again. A few of Gil's seven 3Q turnovers appeared to be unforced, IMO, so I'm not sure if fatigue was a factor or if he stiffened up after the half or what, but he did not appear to be the same guy in the second half.

Posted by: ArmChairQB | November 10, 2009 11:52 PM | Report abuse

I put more weight on the FG%. A lot of the total pts we are giving up are a direct result of our own turnovers, which actually makes the FG% defense even more impressive.

I think there is a perfect storm going on with GA. Yes, he is trying to do too much. Yes, the tools around him are lacking. Yes, everybody is learning the new system. Yes, that he is not the same player he was before yet either. All this = 12 turnovers, poor shooting, and another loss.

Imagine if someone told you that the Wiz would be in the top 8 in FG% defense and Blatche and Haywood would be having career years after 8 games, what would you guess our record to be??? 2-6??? Crazy...just crazy season thus far.

lmao...ptp23, you can't be serious dude?? really?? NY was so scared guarding him on one possession he fouled him on a pass when we were over the limit. I believe there was a forced switch bc I remember DS was on the court as well and the look on his face when NY fouled him on a simple cross court pass was priceless. His look said "you can't be that stupid of a player to foul him on a pass can you?"

I would estimate that only 20 or so of those points were actually scored with DS guarding him. The turnovers in the 3rd got him going more than anything.
