Fresh off of a win against the Chicago Bulls, the Wizards came into the Verizon Center last night looking for some revenge against the Sacramento Kings.

The guys on the court were trying to do too much with the ball instead of playing with the same âteamâ mentality the fans saw on Friday and Saturday nights. Bradley Bealâs wrist was obviously (although he denied it ad nauseam) bothering him, yet he still was taking shots (and airballed at least one as I recall).

The Washington Wizards are once again horrible, but this time it is not entirely their fault. The team has battled injuries all season long, the most significant of which caused John Wall to miss the first 33 games of the season. During that stretch, the Wizards compiled a record of 5-28. They started out the year by losing their first 12 games.
Since Wallâs return on Jan. 12,...
