Wizards vs Lakers, March 7, 2012 – Verizon Center, Washington DC

Wizards Player of the Game
Trevor Booker, with a hat tip to Kevin Seraphin. Booker was everywhere. Hustling on what seemed to be every play and prompting his coach to say after the game, “I couldn’t take him out in the 2nd half based on the way he was playing.”
Book had a monster game on the stat sheet with 18 points on 7 of 9 shooting and 17 rebounds but what makes him so valuable are the things that don’t show up in the box score, the effort and hustle plays.
WE’s to Watch/WE Spotlight
Andrew Bynum - I really thought Bynum was going to dominate in this game. Seeing him up close and in person, he looks all 285 they state he does in the press guide. Seraphin did a phenomenal job in the 2nd half and helped keep the Lakers All Star Center to 6 rebounds and 7 turnovers.
JaVale McGee Had a relatively quiet 12 points and 12 rebounds in only 23 minutes. WE chose the right position, who would have known Seraphin would choose the Lakers to have his coming out party.
Dunks, three point shooting, Lakers, underdog upset, bloopers, hard fouls and a win against Kobe Bryant…that is plenty good.
Jan Vesely got the dreaded “DNP – Coach’s Decision” on a night when every active Wizard player got burn. Not what Wizards fans want to see from the 6th pick in the draft last year but I don’t expect this to be a trend moving forward….I hope.
