Those Washington Wizards fans who stayed up for this late night game vs the Portland Trailblazers surely feel like this one was worth it. In fact, the way the Wizards are playing lately, they almost seem like a must watch team. In a game that went back and forth and had the makings of a typical let down, including Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews raining 3′s to get Portland back in it, the Wizards kept fighting to maintain their lead behind a strong 4th quarter from Jordan Crawford. After Wesley Matthews hit a three to tie it up, and Portland gave their foul to give, the Wizards called timeout with 3.7 seconds to go. The Portland announcers couldn’t decide whether it was going to be Trevor Ariza, Martell Webster, or Jordan Crawford who would be taking the shot. Washington put the ball in Jordan Crawford’s hand and he launched a high arching three at the buzzer: His Steez was phenomenal, as he challenged his inner Gilbert Arenas and started heading up court before the ball even made it through the hoop. He was met by a mob of Wizards players at the other end who celebrated by playing Smear The Steez. Don’t look now, but Washington has won 4 of their last 6. **Will post the CSN Washington Broadcast with Buckhantz’ ‘Dagger’ call when the video is available** Related posts: Jordan Zimmermann – Bad Luck Loser Martell Webster Signs with the Washington Wizards Should the Wizards Trade for Rudy Gay?

And from the sound of it, George Karl is already frustrated with his big man. “He’s got to understand that lazy and...
