WASHINGTON -- Artistic excellence is not a phrase often associated with the Washington Wizards' offense this season. With John Wall back and the team playing a sharing-is-caring brand of basketball, perhaps a new day is dawning in the nation's capital. Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and the Wizards defeated the Orlando Magic 120-91 Monday night for their third straight win. The Wizards (7-28) set season highs for total points, field-goal percentage (56.1 percent), assists (32), points in a quarter (37) and largest margin of victory en route to their first three-game winning streak since closing last season with six consecutive victories. "Offensively, that was a beautiful thing tonight to watch that," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "The ball movement, and you can just see everybody feed off it." Coming off the bench in his second game of the season, Wall scored 12 points in 20 minutes, dished out six assists, made all six of his fr...

Was it so long ago that John Wall was to be the new face of Reebok? And now, less than three years after signing with Reebok, the Washington Wizards guard has jumped ship...to Adidas. The two parties signed a multi-year partnership deal for an undisclosed amount at the end of last week,
"I've enjoyed my time with Reebok and I'm grateful for everything we accomplished...
I can confidently say that this is the first Ish Smith post that we've attempted on That NBA Lottery Pick and he had to do something pretty impressive to earn it.Earlier tonight, the Orlando Magic guard was playing some solid defense on Wizards guard John Wall.As he went up to attempt a block, Ish cleared Wall and leapt over him:
Yesterday, we posted a video of Orlando Magic guard Ish Smith leaping over Wizards guard John Wall and blocking his shot.Well, later in that game...Mr. Wall got revenge by dropping Ish with a pretty solid crossover that sent him to the ground and gave John the opportunity to find Kevin Seraphin for the easy bucket:
When you hear the Wizards and Magic are facing off against each other, you wouldn’t expect the highlights of the night to cone from that came. But that’s exactly what happened. First watch Ish Smith leap over John Wall and then recover and block his shot. But John Wall wasn’t going to go out like [...]
Wizards PG John Wall’s second game resulted in the another win. The team’s third straight win at home and second consecutive win over the Orlando Magic, a 120-91 win vs Magic. The Wizards are now 2-1 against the Magic this year but more importantly, they feel as though they’re beginning to gel. Wall’s return has given these [...]

***JOHN WALL BACK! In something of a surprise return (a surprise to me, at least — I had no idea he was about to come back), Wall helped his Wizards achieve their first win streak (two games) of the season with a 21-minute, 14-point contribution (5-11, 4 AST/3 TO) off the bench. It was a feel-good game for the Wizards in more ways than one, as...

1: Another brick
Washington is trying to shut the naysayers up.
The Wizards have the worst record in the league. They have pundits claiming they have no one to build around. They have an apathetic fan base that has not experienced much in the way of winning for easily the last...
The return of John Wall even in limited minutes has seemed to ignite the Washington Wizards, who are on the verge of a four-game winning streak that would double their previous win total.
Accomplishing that feat requires beating the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night to begin their five-game, eight-day western road trip.
One game after rookie Bradley Beal hit a jumper with 0.3...

As has been the case for quite some time now, the Washington Wizards have long been considered the league clowns of the NBA. There’s really no need for clarification as the factors for the team’s prolonged suckassness has been on full display and well documented: slow starts, slow finishes, offensive ineptitude, defensive struggles, lack of talent, poor coaching, managerial mishaps...
