Wizards Overtime and Tuesday TidbitsPosted on January 14, 2013 by SportzWiz
Hey everyone SportzWiz checking in. I'm going to dive into the game in a moment but I'm going to provide a quick link to our latest Wizards Overtime with Dave and Glenn. In this segment Dave and Glenn discuss Mike James, Dominic McGuire and the Orlando Magic. Click here to take a look. Onto the game, another tough fourth quarter for the Wizards, but as always there are positives to take away from every loss. First, we'll start with the obvious player of the game, Nick Young. Young has been on fire recently and that continued yesterday. He stepped up and became the Wizards go to guy down the stretch scoring 10 points in a row in the fourth. Nick's play has a lot to do with his confidence and obviously right now that confidence is very high. Second, another strong effort from Dom McGuire, 10 boards and 5 assists he also did a nice job keeping Richard Jefferson in check limiting him to 8 points on 3 of 9 shooting. Lastly, we've started mentioning Javaris Crittenton's name a little more and once again he had a solid performance off the bench, he grabbed five rebounds to go along with four assists and four points and had 0 turnovers. Since the new year when his minutes have increased he has a 18 to 6 assist to turnover ratio. Its a small sample but just to give you an idea only 11 guys in the NBA have an assist to turnover ratio over 3. (included in that list are names like Paul, Calderon, Kidd, Bibby, Billups,) As always I will be heading down to practice soon and I will let you know what I hear.
