(AP Photo/Jim Prisching) This has certainly not been the season that all of us fans, the organization, and especially Trevor Booker thought he would have.  Wednesday night vs the Bucks, Booker showed what he can do and came up big for the Washington Wizards in a big win. The Wizards had blown a 20-point lead they had built in the first half and trailed by three entering the fourth quarter.  Shades of how they played in their last two losses. Booker, finally saw consistent minutes off the bench for the first time this year and he responded. He played 22 minutes and came through for the team when we needed Booker’s unstoppable energy the most. He was one of three players to register double-doubles, the other two being starters John Wall and Nene. After the game Booker spoke about how frustrating his inconsistent minutes have been.  He said some games he played, but never a lot of minutes and other games he wouldn’t play at all.  Booker had 13 points on 4-for-5 shooting and 12 rebounds. He said he just needs to be ready when his number is called and on Wednesday he was.  He scored nine of his points in the fourth quarter, when the Wizards went on a run to close the game and outscored the Bucks 31-15 to pull out the 106-93 win. Booker had a key three-point play that gave the Wizards an 80-78 lead that they would never relinquish. The Wizards (21-42) have won eight of their last 11 home games and beat a playoff-caliber team in Milwaukee (32-31). Trevor has always been a high energy, high effort player and he wears his heart on his sleeve.  Now that Booker is finally healthy after a knee injury that kept him out the first two months of the season and a wrist injury that saw him miss more time, we are finally seeing the Booker we expected all season. I expect we will continue to see more minutes for Booker the last month of the season and he will prove once again that he deserves to be a major part of this teams future.
