CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Washington Wizards are a mess without injured stars Nene and John Wall. They were at their ugliest Tuesday night in a woeful 92-76 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. The numbers told the whole story for Washington: 29.8 percent shooting from the field (25-for-84); 16.1 percent shooting from 3-point range (5-for- 31); 17 turnovers; outscored 46-24 in the paint. Twelve points in the second quarter on 3-of-15 shooting from the field, allowing the Bobcats to take control of the game. One player -- Trevor Ariza with 19 points -- scoring in double figures. Add it all up, and the Wizards are 0-6 with any number of problems. Ramon Sessions came off the bench to lead the Bobcats (3-3) with 21 points. Kemba Walker added 17 points for Charlotte, and rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 15. Washington coach Randy Wittman was livid afterward, especially since the Wizards totally fell apart after pulling out to a 27-23 lead after one quarter. The Wizards managed just ...

Charlotte Bobcats rookie forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist made an impressive play in the fourth quarter of Saturday night's NBA game against the Dallas Mavericks by grabbing a defensive rebound and going coast-to-coast for a layup despite losing one of his shoes at halfcourt.
Kidd-Gilchrist's play inspired the Bobcats to rally from an 8-point deficit with 4:18 left to...
Earlier today we tweeted a John Wall GIF that summed up these winless, feckless Wizards rather nicely, but this one from the halftime show of last night’s loss to the Bobcats (via @HouseFromDC) really takes the cake.
Your 2012-13 Washington Wizards, like a karate stick to the nuts.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- When Tyrus Thomas dove for a loose ball heading out of bounds near the baseline in the second quarter Tuesday night against the Washington Wizards, it was clear the collective mindset of the Charlotte Bobcats was to execute at maximum effort.
Thomas saved the ball to a teammate, and about 12 seconds later Ramon Sessions converted a driving layup. It was one...
Wednesday Wizards Report Image courtesy @KevinHineWoA with Wiz of Awes _________________________________________ Wizards Need Changes….NOW! After last night’s blowout at the hands of the Bobcats (one of the worst statements a NBA fan can mutter), I can’t tell if this is 2011 or 2012. Last year the Washington Wizards started out 0-8 and with upcoming games against the...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats parted ways with veteran guard Matt Carroll on Tuesday, sending him to New Orleans for forward Hakim Warrick.
Warrick comes over after playing in just one game, but he should give the team more veteran experience down low. His next game will be the 500th of his seven-year career.
We are very excited to add a player of Hakims ability and...

The Washington Wizards played the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night in a game that made all 6 viewers at home say “can’t we just contract one of these teams and combine the rosters?” The game was so unappealing that even the referees appeared to tune out at one point. The Set-Up: with just over three minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Jan...
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Tie game, clock winding down, ball in his hands. It's been a while since Kemba Walker has been in that situation.
When he finally found himself there with the Charlotte Bobcats, the super-slick guard dipped into his UConn bag of tricks. Just like Villanova, Texas, Pitt and most other college teams he vanquished, the Minnesota Timberwolves had no chance.
Byron Mullens played the most complete game of his career tonight. Keep it up big guy!No one said that this season would be easy. Many said that we'd be lucky to see 15 wins. Well, tonight we got our 4th win of the season, and the 3rd one in a row. It wasn't pretty for the last portion of the 4th quarter, but a W is a W, so no complaints here. Kemba's killer crossover...

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kemba Walker took both himself and his Charlotte Bobcats back in time with his game-winning, last-second shot that beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 89-87 on Wednesday night at Target Center. His 19-foot jump shot with seven-tenths of a second remaining provided a fitting finish to a wild final six minutes on a night when Walker turned the calendar back 20 months ...
When looking at the NBA standings, that glaring donut in the Wizards’ win column will certainly draw a bit of unwanted déjà vu. The Wizards, just one season removed from an atrocious 0-8 start in 2011, find themselves spiraling down a similar funnel of misfortune but somehow seem to be avoiding the panic button.
How so? Well, in contrast to last season, the Wizards of present...
Kemba Walker uses a sweet crossover to get open for his game-winning jumper as the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night 89-87.Walker ended up with 22 points.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Bobcats added to the Washington Wizards' miseries on Tuesday night, rolling to an ugly but relatively easy 92-76 victory at Time Warner Cable Arena. Ramon Sessions came off the bench to score 21 points, Kemba Walker scored 17, and the Bobcats won their second consecutive game. They are now 3-3 overall, and 3-1 at home. The Bobcats scored...
Short four starters and half of their normal active roster, Wednesday’s version of the Minnesota Timberwolves were about as undermanned a team as I’ve seen since Don Nelson was forced to exercise a little-known rule and put a fouled-out Warrior in the game during his most recent stint with Golden State. Lucky for Rick Adelman, his group of nine healthy bodies (one more...
MINNEAPOLIS -- The same Charlotte Bobcats franchise -- but not the same team -- that lost its final 23 games last season now has won three consecutive games for the first time since March 2011 after Wednesday's wild 89-87 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis. Remade with the summertime hiring of coach Mike Dunlap and five off-season player additions, the Bobcats...
