WIZARDS PLAYER OF THE GAME

Jan Vesely. With a career high of 16 points and also pulling down 6 boards, he managed to shoot an unbelievable 100% from the field. A big reason for Jan’s success tonight (except for the nonexistent play of the Charlotte Bobcats) was John Wall, who kept finding Vesely in the lane to the fast break or down in the post as he was able to clear the way for some very easy baskets.

WE’s TO WATCH/WE SPOTLIGHT

Picking a spotlight from the Charlotte Bobcats is like trying to pick a talented rapper from Yale University. But D.J. Augustin did have somewhat of an impressive outing with 15 points and 6 assists. He did, however, also add to the team’s sloppy play with 3 turnovers. John Wall had an outstanding night as he racked up 16 points and 14 assists. It’s hard to find a player who can get almost as many assists as scoring when you’re talking double-figures, but Wall had a “pass-first” mentality tonight which he needs to keep working on in the future.

THE GOOD

Coming out strong. The Wizard managed to get 63 points in the first half; and with Charlottes measly 39, the Wizards pretty much had the end of the game decided by halftime. The field goal percentage was strong throughout the game (final being 55%), but in the first half they shot just under 63% thanks to Wall’s assists to the easy bucket and the second-team’s strong performance off the bench.

THE BAD

Turnovers. The Bobcats are horrible, but the Wizards really gave them every chance to attempt a comeback with 18 turnovers in the game. Thankfully, the Bobcats only scored 13 points off those turnovers, but with any other team, they might have sunk them and ended the winning streak.

THE UGLY

Tyrus Thomas. I’ve never really liked the guy for some reason, he always seems to play too dirty for my liking. While this works for some teams, it won’t work for a dejected 7-57 Charlotte Bobcats where aggressive play just shows frustration due to it coming at the wrong time. Thomas got away with only an offensive foul after he attempted to clear the space after a rebound, but when he did it and ended up Metta World-Peace’ing James Singleton, it was time to go. The matchup was getting pretty heated between them for it only being the first quarter, and Thomas couldn’t believe the call, but it was a poor decision by him to leave his team (even more) dry like that. As to whether Singleton flopped, he seemed perturbed at the thought of it after the game, saying, “Have you ever seen me flop in my career? That’s not my game; you can look at the film. That’s not my game.”

Paul Silas Seems Really Sad, Probably Because He Coaches the Charlotte Bobcats (Video)

The Charlotte Bobcats are an atrocious basketball team, as evidenced by their 7-57 record, a mark that has been helped along by a current 21-game losing streak.

WASHINGTON- When the losing really got bad for John Wall, he turned to another guy who once knew plenty about seeing his teams score listed on the right side.

Thats even worse than Wall, who won 26 of his first 100 games as Washingtons point guard. I asked Kevin how he...

Brown: Jordan employs “spies”
