Wednesday After a WinPosted on January 14, 2013 by SportzWiz
Is it just me or even on this rainy Wednesday morning did it feel about 10 times easier to get out of bed. Anyway Sportzwiz checking in, great game last night. You really can't say enough about the professionalism of Juan Dixon to come off the bench after several DNP's and just playing great out there. Darius Songaila has been a huge difference maker for the past several weeks, last night he played with one of the best big men in the game and flustered him throughout on his way to 15 points. Antawn Jamison hardly filled up the stat sheet in points, but he rebounded well and had several steals, as coach Tapscott said after the game he did a great job of rotating and helping down low. Andray Blatche brought some great energy and his huge slam over Rasheed was a huge momentum builder as was his putback dunk to give the Wizards their first lead of the game. As many of you know I have been a huge Dominic McGuire fan, he plays hard nose defense and his offense is slowly coming around. Yesterday he showed off a great dribble and reverse layup, a soaring putback dunk and something that we talked about all summer, an improved jumper that was a huge shotin the fourth. Of course he also had a block and steal and received a standing ovation when he came out in the fourth. Finally, Caron Butler, he brings it every night and yesterday was no different, 33 points, 14-14 from the stripe, 6 assists and five rebounds. A few more stats from last night: The Wizards committed just 7 turnovers Washington held Detroit to just 4 offensive rebounds The Wizards went to the stripe 31 times compared to Detroit's 14 Ok I will be heading down to practice but today's audio will probably be posted later today as several players, Wizard Girls and G-Wiz will be attending the Wizards Family to Family Event.
