Wizards Player of the Game
Earl Barron. One of the biggest sparks of the late third quarter and fourth quarter run, Barron pulled out eight points, eigt boards, a steal and a block. Without him, the Wizards might have found themselves in a blowout that seemed to be imminent during a downward spiral of a second quarter and the beginning of a third quarter. He proved his spot on this roster after both Brian Cook and Shelvin Mack were waived. While the move to drop Mack was questionable, there’s no way he would have had this sort of impact on a game. As for Brian Cook, well, that certainly wasn’t questionable to begin with.
Kyrie Irving certainly didn’t disappoint for the Cavaliers with 29 points, six boards and three assists. He found ways to manipulate the Wizards defense, knocking three 3-pointers down as well as being a hassle in the paint, which sent ...

John Wall, Nene and Kevin Seraphin are supposed to return sometime soon, and it was just one game, but here are eight reasons the 2012-13 Wizards are already such a sad, sad group:
1. The starting lineup: A.J. Price, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Trevor Booker and Emeka Okafor. Woof.
2. The bench lineup: Jannero Pargo, Jordan Crawford, Martell Webster, Chris Singleton and Jan Vesely...
Before the team was named the Washington Wizards, they were known as the Bullets and nothing captured that Bullet spirit than the 1978 championship team.
Led by center Wes Unseld, the Bullets faced the Seattle Super Sonics in a thrilling game 7 in Seattle. Players such as Unseld, Dennis Johnson, Paul Silas, Bob Danridge, Elvin Hyes, Jack Sikma, Freddie Brown, and many more future...
The Washington Wizards tipped off their season in relatively forgettable fashion last night against the Cavs. Undermanned and out-coached, the patched up lineup for the Wiz instilled a familiar sense of disheartenment amongst their faithful following with a collective murmur of “here we go again”.
Granted, the Wizards were gravely crippled going in to Cleveland, missing their...
A short-handed Washington Wizards team escaped the D.C. area hours ahead of Hurricane Sandy to play their season opener in Cleveland against the Cavaliers, but the team didn't really show up until the fourth quarter. The Wizards fell behind by 16 points in the third quarter, trailed by 12 after three and finally lost by 10, 94-84.
In between the 12-point deficit and the...

Basketball is back! While people prepared to watch Miami and Boston on TNT, The Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards took center-stage. The result was Cleveland defeating Washington in a 94-84 final, and I must say both teams looked decent. Cleveland was active on the boards, and when they needed him most, Kyrie Irving stepped up. Washington on the other hand, looked very...
I love opening day of any sport.
I’ve discussed this point ad nauseam, but there’s nothing like that feeling of the unknown. Staring at a blank canvas, and yeah, you’re limited to the colors in your palette, but the possibilities are endless. The season could be anything.
Basketball, of course, is a bit of a different animal though. In baseball, you have a 162 game marathon...
San Antonio Spurs fans may not have even turned on the NBA Draft on their television sets when Washington Wizards rookie Bradley Beal was drafted out of Florida with the third pick this summer, especially considering where the Spurs drafted.
But Spurs fans and the Spurs themselves got a chance to get a look at Beal when the Wizards visited the Spurs on Friday for their final...

The Washington Wizards open the 2012-2013 NBA season October 30, on the road against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Just four seasons ago this was a heated rivalry before both teams lost star players and having losing records as of late, the rivalry has pretty much ended.
