The Wizards' JaVale McGee will never get confused for a Rhodes Scholar, but the guy is as freaky athletic as they come. He put a new meaning to dunking from the free throw line Tuesday against the Bucks. McGee took an errant pass, gathered himself along the baseline and then wasn't going to be denied.

Milwaukee has become a trendy city for the Wizards this season. Roger Mason, Jr can’t seem to catch a break there and the Wizards defense doesn’t seem to show up until the third quarter.

John Wall weaved around and tossed in a running floater that gave the Wizards a one-point lead with 6.8 seconds remaining and he received flying chest-bumps and high-fives as he headed to the...
Much to the Washington Wizard’s chagrin, it seems that no one in the NBA is interested in trading for a less than mediocre big man that challenges fans to fights on Twitter and has hosted an event called “Lap Dance Tuesday”. Or better known as Andray Blatche.But that hasn’t stopped the Wizards from mightily trying to swing a deal to unload Blatche. But again, no one wants...
The Wizards begin the second half of the season tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks. After a disappointing and frustrating first half of the season, which included my friends all laughing at me, I’m still hopeful and optimistic about this team.

It all starts with...

But Coach Randy Wittman told his players not to look back on their struggles and try to make the most of what is in front of them, beginning on Tuesday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

After John Wall's off-balance floater temporarily gave Washington a one-point lead, Ersan Ilyasova's tip-in with two seconds remaining lifted the Bucks to a 119-118 victory over the Wizards.
Two teams hoping for better results in the second half of the NBA season clash tonight in Brew City, as the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Washington Wizards from the Bradley Center.
