WIZARDS HEAD COACH FLIP SAUNDERS
On the team’s performance:
“When you get up big, you have to find a way to sustain it. In our league teams are always going to make runs, but it is how your respond to those runs. I thought that we responded poorly. When we got up 20 points, we were playing team basketball. We were doing it the right way, and we got away from that.”
On the team:
We are capable, but we missed too many free throws, turned the ball over too much, and made careless mistakes. I thought we had great energy defensively, but in the second half we did not have that same defensive energy.”
WIZARDS GUARD NICK YOUNG
On the new season:
“I felt good out there, my wind was strong and my teammates were finding me. We need to start the year off winning to get a good momentum an...

AROUND THE WEB
Andray Blatche says everybody needs to ''shut up'' about his criticisms over the play-calling in the Washington Wizards' season-opening loss.
Blatche took to Twitter on Tuesday to say he wasn't calling out coach Flip Saunders after Monday night's defeat to the New Jersey Nets. Blatche says he had a bad game because he needs the ball in the post more,...
Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche didn't take kindly to the criticism he received following a season-opening loss to the New Jersey Nets.
Blatche was upset after Monday's 90-84 defeat because he wasn't being used properly. He scored 11 points on 5 of 13 shooting.
"Every body need to shut up I didn't call out my coach or team mates I said I had a bad...
Much has been made of Andray Blatche’s season-opening performance. That he prefaced it with an “I’m your captain” speech. (Note: He is not the Wizards’ captain.) That he was badly outplayed by Kris Humphries. That he told the press he needs the ball in the post. And that he then told critics to “shut up”. So.
My favorite nugget, though, was found in that last link,...
Andray Blatche was not made available on Tuesday, a day after he expressed his frustrations about how he was used in the Wizards’ opening night loss to the New Jersey Nets. He sneaked through the back exit after practice, and avoided crossing paths with reporters, but didn’t necessarily go quietly.
He responded to criticisms of his criticism of the coaching staff for not getting...

After shaking off the disappointment of losing a 21-point lead and dropping their home opener to the New Jersey Nets, the Washington Wizards will head to Atlanta to face the Hawks on Wednesday. It will be a homecoming of sorts for rookie Chris Singleton. From Canton, Ga., Singleton said he ...
Before Monday night's season-opener against the New Jersey Nets, self-proclaimed Washington Wizards "captain" Andray Blatche delivered this heartfelt message to the fans in attendance.
Via DC Sports Bog:
The summer that Andray referenced in his speech ended about three months ago. And, as Dan Steinberg relayed and Michael Lee reported, Andray really isn't the...
Johnson says Williams can increase scoring output
The New Jersey Nets have high hopes this season. With Deron Williams on board for a full year, New Jersey was thinking playoffs and probably a little bigger thanks to Dwight Howard making it known Brooklyn is his favored landing spot. Williams has all but told Billy King and Mikhail Prokhorov he will stay with the Nets if they can land Howard.
New Jersey had a lot of work to do to...
Kris Humphries shrugged off loud booing to finish with 21 points and 16 rebounds, and Deron Williams had 23 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, helping the New Jersey Nets beat the Washington Wizards 90-84 Monday night in the season opener for both teams.
The Washington Wizards today announced their promotional schedule for the 2011-2012 season.

Kevin Garnett played his share of zone defense under Flip Saunders in Minnesota, but I never thought I'd see the day when the Celtics would zone up against the Heat for an extended stretch with Garnett on the floor.
First off, let's offer up a few disclaimers. On virtually every half-court possession, the Celtics are zoned up on at least half of the floor. This is the defining...
