Thursday Thoughts and MorePosted on January 08, 2009
Hey everyone SportzWiz checking in, tough one last night. Once again the team fell behind and never recovered. Coach Tapscott and Caron and Antawn all talked about it last night. The team fell in love with the jumper early and before you knew it they were down big. They fought back but the whole was too deep to come out of at that point. One positive sign last night was Javaris Crittenton, he did a very nice job in his first extended minutes of the season. Coach Tap had some very good things to say about him as well. Right now he's still picking up the offense but you can see he feels more and more comfortable in it. 3 very good #'s for him last night 6 assists, 3 steals and 0 turnovers. Moving on, the Wizards are off today, and will travel to Chicago this afternoon and go through a walk through/film session tonight at the hotel and they will have shootaround tomorrow. A few other things as far as our next home game on Saturday. Caron Butler is hosting his coats for kids drive, so all fans in attendance are encouraged to bring new or gently used coats and gloves to help clothe less fortunate families this year. All fans that donate will receive a ticket voucher good for a future Wizards game. Also there will be a contest on Saturday for every fan in attendance that fills out an All-Star Ballot. one lucky fan is going to win the trip of a lifetime.
