Open thread: Wizards (14-37) vs. Spurs (44-9)

By Michael Lee

The Wizards signed Mustafa Shakur to his second 10-day contract on Saturday and he will likely get some extended minutes with the team again depleted. Rashard Lewis is forced to sit out with tendinitis in his right knee, Al Thornton will miss his second game with a dislocated finger and Josh Howard will not return from his left knee injury until possibly Sunday in Cleveland. Nick Young will start at small forward, with Kirk Hinrich put back in the starting lineup at shooting guard. The Spurs lost, 77-71, in Philadelphia on Friday.

Let the conversation begin in the thread below. You can also join the conversation on Twitter with Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee). See your tweets here by using #wizards.

Tipoff: 8 p.m.; TV: CSN; Radio: 106.7 FM. Check out a live box score from tonight's game here.

Glad to see Mustapha back. Not that it means much but it's good to see a 26 year old get his chance at the big show.

Spurs might win by 50. Where is flips motivation skills, his leaders, or anything?

So far the season's worst game... pretty remarkably bad performance.

This is really tough to watch. The effort of some players don't look too good. Too many jump shots going on and absolutely no defense to speak of.

Nice comment Nick Young made that he's glad Cleveland won so Wiz won't have that pressure of losing to them.

Well Nick, i hate to be the one to tell you losing to Cleveland will be just as bad tomorrow since it will extend YOUR TEAM'S LOSING STREAK!!!

But enough about that, I'll let you get back to your game tonite with the Spurs..good luck!!!!!!!!!

Everybody dumped on Cleveland now I'm sure they will take the opportunity to dump on the Wiz and extend their road losing streak....Should be interesting still.....

It's 84-53 as I type this. I've seen better defense played during layup drills.

98-58. It's like a Connecticut women's game against South Dakota State.

The Wizards cheerleaders now have bags over their heads.

Ironically, though, a loss this bad tonight might portend a win tomorrow.

One of the most telling stats from tonight's game: Tim Duncan played a grand total of 12 minutes. Not even a practice session.

lol, I was going to name this game "Fire Flip vs Da Cavs". I think we have to seriously look at firing him if we get murdered by the Spurs one night and lose to the pitiful Cavs the next night while going 0 & forever on the road. Its defiinitely not all his fault and we suck so much that it might be good to keep him so we can get a top pick & then axe him but if we do that then people might get mad at us for doing it at that time.

If he loses then I wouldnt argue at all with him getting the boot. His sytem sucks, atleast for our team and he cant motivate our guys enough. Now he shouldnt need to motivate pros but this could be like a Bobcats with Larry Brown or a Pacers with Jim O'Brien situation where the team just doesnt respond to them anymore and looks way better with the new coach & system change.
