Ugh. Now Seraphin is the goat.

They are just getting into the paint and scoring way too easily.

Its like its not fun for them unless the score is close for the majority of the game.

Look to have it wrapped up now though.

Yeah Gortat and Wall finished really really strong. Wall had a terrific game. The ones where he breaks double digits assists and all of our key guys get into double figures are the best. I love when he makes his teammates better.

30 to 11 FT advantage for the Hawks BTW. A Hawks team starting Shelvin Mack, Cartier Martin, and Elton Brand.

That's what bad coaching + one sided officiating gets you.

Negatives: they let a team that was beat up and playing backups hang around until the end. Positives: we actually won, and with 48 seconds and 30 seconds respectively, Porter and Ves doubled their playing time for the season... Oh and Ves managed to somehow not foul out in his 30 seconds. :)

28 games left. Wizards have 5 more wins than the 11th ranked Knicks and 3 less than the 3rd ranked Raptors. Point is that there is very little room for error, a losing skid right now could absolutely ruin the season. Atlanta falling apart is a great thing.

Would be good to win @toronto and @cleveland. Losing both would be bad. We have the Pelicants and Orlando as well to close out February.

Washington Wizards are interested in trading for Orlando's Jameer Nelson. Magic looking for a second-round pick, according to a source.

The Wizards have actively pursued a backup point guard, with Denver's Miller and Milwaukee's Ridnour at the top of the list. Sacramento's Fredette and Orlando's Nelson are expected to be considered, too. Washington would love to add an impact big man -- the front office is high on Detroit's Monroe -- but it's unlikely it will have the pieces needed to satisfy Detroit. With a strong desire to move up in the East, though, expect the Wizards to aggressively pursue a deal.

Anyone know how much of Nelson 8 million next year is guaranteed?

Jameer Nelson – 3rd year partially guaranteed at $2M if not waived before July 15th, 2014.

LOL @ the "extra continue" jingle from Sonic the Hedgehog being used when ATL players made FTs.

I always wondered why that sound was so familiar. I thought it was from Mario, when you jump up and punch the bricks and coins pop out.

I'm very nervous about what EG is going to do at the deadline.  I'm preparing myself mentally for him to make a deal that's mind-blowingly stupid just for a backup PG.  SMH.

We do need a backup PG. I think that will solve a lot of ills. But I'm not sure how you get Jameer Nelson without paying lux tax this year. That's something we don't want to do. We don't want to have to pay repeater tax and getting a lux tax year at the beginning of the Wall/Beal era hampers us later on, when you're going to have to be spending more as Wall and Beal make a ton more money.

I actually don't worry that much about Ernie trades for vets. He's mostly avoided killer midseason trades. FA and the draft is what makes me nervous. Trading picks or passing over the obvious choices is more of a threat with Ernie.

If we're not going after Jameer...why not make a serious offer to N.O. for Austin Rivers and the rights to Pierre Jackson?

Rivers's contract.

How did that kid end up such a turdy player? Seems like the apple fell pretty far from the tree.

Grunfeld has yet to end his fascination with small forwards.

Does that mean Otto will be told he's a PF/C next season?
