Game Day MiamiPosted on January 14, 2013 by DJ-WizardsRadio
6:01 AM EST...Dave Johnson checking in from Miami...land of the $5.16 cup of coffee...but with free refills...I am still working on the free part when the cup starts at over $5. Anyway it is the Wizards and Heat tonight. The team actually flew here right after Saturday's 100-99 loss to the Magic. It was a chance to get settled and hold a practice at American Airlines Arena. Flip Saunders reminded the team that they can build on Saturday's game even though it was a loss. The Wizards won the battle of the boards and it was rebounding that saved them after a poor shooting start. It was also a game where everyone one contributed. Gilbert Arenas and Nick Young had dramatic stretches that changed the game but it truly was a team effort. Alonzo Gee started and responded with 8 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 steals. Gee will be busy again tonight as he will be onLeBron James. John Wall, Al Thornton, and Yi Jianlian did not take part in yesterday's practice and we will update you on their status for tonight as we know it. The Heat had a players only meeting after their loss on Saturday to the Mavericks. The Heat are 9-8 this season...the same record at this time last year. The Hawks had a players only meeting before the Thanksgiving win over the Wizards....Wizards need to be ready....THE BLOGCAST..live radio and live blogging…we invite you to connect with yours truly and Glenn Consor tonight from Miami as we take you inside the game….Wizards basketball this year can be heard on NINE radio stations from Baltimore to North Carolina.
