DENVER -- The Washington Wizards used an 18-4 run to start the fourth quarter to rally past the Denver Nuggets 112-108 on Friday night. Washington's Bradley Beal blocked Ty Lawson's lay-up attempt in the final seconds to deny Denver a chance to tie the game and force overtime. The Wizards won their fourth game in their past five and improved their road record to 2-16. They also claimed a sweet victory for Nene, the power forward they acquired from Denver for JaVale McGee last March in a trade. It was the first time Nene had played against the Nuggets. Nene spent his first nine full NBA seasons in Denver before the trade. Washington (8-29) trailed 87-80 entering the final period, but the Wizards began to click offensively, something they've struggled to do all season. The Wizards scored 67 points in the second half and finished the night 11-for-23 on 3s, a 47.8 percent clip. Washington shot 51.3 percent from the field. Reserve forward Kevin Seraphin scored 14 po...

In the off-season, JaVale McGee signed a $44 million 4-year contract with the Denver Nuggets that sent tongues wagging and misinformation spiraling. It was assumed his big contract was indicative of him starting, which isn’t true as a contract has little correlation with good or bad production, but market value to the franchise. It wouldn’t [...]The post George Karl on JaVale...

Emeka Okafor says Wizards Record doesn’t Reflect their Ability The Washington Wizards are just 8-29 at this point in the season. A record that by no means indicates that they’re a team to be reckoned with or have playoff aspirations. However, if you look closely things have begun to change in Washington with the return of point guard John Wall.
Winning 4 out of their last...
Most NBA coaches want more out of their players on the court. Denver Nuggets coach George Karl wants JaVale McGee to play like Tim Duncan, arguably the greatest NBA power forward of all-time. How does Karl expect McGee to play like Duncan? The answer may surprise you:
“I think he tries to be spectacular,” Karl said of McGee. “Basketball is a game of possession after possession...

“Probably simple and solid,” Karl said, when asked what he tells McGee most. “I think he tries to be spectacular. Basketball is a game of possession after possession of doing things the right way, doing your job and letting the spectacular come. I think JaVale tries to find the spectacular and forces the spectacular when if you just let Andre Miller and Ty [Lawson], let us...

No doubt the MVP for this game was Bradley Beal. The rookie is not playing like such and is showing confidence in his game. He had a career high in 3 point shooting, shooting 6-7. Beal and the Wizards seemed...
