So, who had a line-up of Jennings-Sato-Oubre-Smith-Bogs getting the Wiz back into the game?

And when are they gonna get the press off the ****ing base line? Health risk to players. Such a joke.

No way that isn't a foul on Crowder. No ****ing way. He raked down and got both forearms. 

 

Yeah, just stand there flatflooted and watch instead of boxing out and making them go over your back. That always works. Back to back ****ing lazy, worthless efforts on defense and rebounding. Teams now KNOW if they try they can dominate the boards. Guards leaking out after 3s. Bigs just watching. Ducking pathetic effort.

And another Smart flop. Acted like he got shot by a sniper.

I'm only checking in to say that this team isn't playing like a team worthy of my money to take the family to see.

 

I said that a few months ago and they went on a hot run, let's do this one more time.

Thank God Marcus Smart changed his hair. It was unbearable to look at during the previous meeting. So is Gortat's play right now.

 

The only thing giving me hope now is that, during both of our recent playoff seasons, we had similar slumps in the later part of the regular season, only for us to turn it on come playoff time...at least for 1 series.

12 games left. Have to finish 8-4 to finish with 50. Honestly I'm not sure, we could lose four on the coming road trip by itself. Really screwed up with those bad losses to Philly, Dallas, and Charlotte.

Wall isn't healthy, I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to shelf him before the end of the season.  If that foot gets worse we're sunk.

Fell asleep during the game, but was prepared for Boston getting us back and tying the season series.  All these road games to end the season are just killing us.  Is there a break between regular season and first round of the playoffs?

How much of a drop off in production would we see if the Wizards started Jason Smith over Gortat?

Wizards flaming out lately with baffling losses to Dallas and Charlotte as well as Boston. Championship aspirations might have been premature. 

 

There's nothing wrong with saying that. This is a good team. But they were never elite. They were never championship contenders or eastern conference finals participants. The ceiling for this club the way they're playing is second round when they inevitably get eliminated by Cleveland or Boston.

I didn't want to be the first to say it, but this move should have been made when he started getting two fouls every first quarter.

I still think in a 7 game series we can beat Boston.

Gotta win the next 2 at home and worst case go 2-4 on the road trip and we should be ok. I'd rest the starters either the golden state or clippers game on the road trip.

Boston has one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA and they dominated the boards.

One positive is Oubre's 4th quarter defense. Hope he is gaining his confidence back.

he will ask for the max because teams will pay the max. i'm just not sure we should be the ones to do it

I said the same thing about Beal, but not sure its the same situation.  I can't say I like what Porter is giving now versus the year prior to Beal signing for max, because they both pull disappearing acts.

The alternative is letting him walk for nothing.

 

We went through this process with Wall and Beal.  The many many people who thought we should have let Beal walk were absolutely and unequivocally wrong.  Let's not do it all over again with Otto.

But does Porter have Beal's upside? The issue with Beal was always health but we saw him dominate playoff games. I don't think Porter will be that good. His best case scenario is a good #3 option on a contender. Is that worth the max? In today's NBA, maybe, but its a tough decision.

 

The plan might be to let Porter walk, resign Bog, and make a run at Cousins(that Wall article that came out made it sound like he's trying to recruit him).

If so, then that's a bad plan.  Sign Porter and trade him down the road if we want to make a run at Cousins.  Letting Porter walk for nothing would be a disaster.

Porter has gotten remarkably better every season in every single statistical category. 2 years ago people wanted him out because he couldn't hit a 3 pointer... 

 

Hes going nowhere, and would be hard to bet against him growing further.
