Game Day New JerseyPosted on January 14, 2013 by DJ-WizardsRadio
6:30 AM EST...Dave Johnson checking in...I will be taking the train with Phil Chenier later to meet up with the team. Usually on these three-hour train rides we can discuss all of the team's possibilities and potential, but it is different right now. The discussion is limited because the number of players available has been limited by injuries. We know Yi is out with a sprained right knee and John Wall and Andray Blatcheare not expected to play because of sore knees. In short this team needs to get healthy because 10 different starting lineups in 23 games is too many. But as the old saying goes you can't worry about what you can't control. The Wizards can control their effort and against the Lakers they gave a good one. The Wizards competed with the Lakers on the boards and limited their turnovers, but just did not shoot well. Sure there were times the Wizards may have settled for jump shots but that was more when they were desperate to close the gap on the Lakers. Wizards had several good looks early that they missed and for the game we had the Wizards at 13 of 29 on shots taken in the paint with 7 missed layups. It's a team game but big offensive nights from Gilbert Arenas and Kirk Hinrich will go along way to helping the Wizards secure their first road win.
