The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

14 or 15 is as good as 25 or 30 against Memphis. This game is over. We're playing like **** and the defense has been really bad.

We let a scrub like Prince go off on us. That can't happen if we wanted to win.

Ah well. Lets use this 4th qtr for confidence in our shooting. Lights out. Would be huge if Otto can build off this game.

I'm glad Witt rested Martell and went with Otto tonight. It was good to see Otto get into the game, play meaningful minutes, and hit some shots.

Webster had been so ineffective and I don't think he's been healthy for a while. He needs the rest.

You never know what you're going to get from a 20 year old night to night. But Porter should definitely play until Webster's back gets better. And if he plays well, then he deserves a chance. Play him at SG if need be. Go small and play him at PF. The lineups are so makeshift right now anyway. You've got Harrington struggling big time to find his shot. You've got Singleton playing all over the place. You've got Booker giving you inconsistent effort depending on the night. You've got Drew Gooden just trying to stay in the league. And you've got Andre Miller trying to figure out his new team. We're scraping the end of the bench already, give Porter a chance. He's the third most important player on this team long term.

Could it be that Wittman was smart to keep the young players fresh all season? We'll see.

 

Loved seeing Porter hit that late 3. Booker had a tough assignment tonight but he played well. We really need Seraphin back but at least we're getting deeper by the game. I didn't expect to beat Memphis so I was happy with the late effort and of course, JW was awesome again. 

 

We're getting better. I really want to leapfrog Chicago.

Brooklyn beat Chicago tonight.

The starters played well. Beal was fantastic on offense in the second half. Marcin was fantastic in the first half. Ariza and Booker both played very well although Prince got away from us. He should not have gone off like he did.

And Wall was a stud, but a few inopportune errors ended up being really costly in the third quarter.

But the real issue looks like the disparity in bench production. Memphis's bench is impressive and they badly outplayed our bench. Except for Porter. Porter gave us quality minutes. But their bench outscored ours by 20 points.

Marc Gasol is such a gifted passer. And those damn tipouts on the offensive boards were back breaking. He makes the winning plays. Cut from the same cloth as Joakim Noah.

But Witt didnt go with Otto tonight. He went with Singleton. It wasnt until Singleton played himself off the roster this year, that Otto saw any playing time. Seriously, why did Singleton play the 3 over Otto tonight? Makes no sense whatsoever.

Seemed like every loose ball bounced their way, and in a position for them to get an assist immediately after picking the ball up. Eh anyway, two very winnable games coming up before Miami. Can't let one close loss to a good team derail our momentum.

Kind of expected without Nene and Seriphin, it was going to be tough dealing with Gasol and Randolph. I mean, they didn't destroy us, but they did enough damage. Didn't expect Prince to play like he played though.

We need to bounce back Wednesday with a win vs the Jazz...
