DC Pro Sports Report:
The Washington Wizards lost their home opener tonight 89-86 to the Boston Celtics 89-86. The loss drops the Wizards to 0-2 while the Celtics got their first win of the season against two losses.
The Wizards started horribly tonight -- much like their season opener in Cleveland -- and fell behind 19-2 in the first quarter. Trailing 26-12 after one quarter, Wizards Head Coach Randy Wittman turned to his bench and that worked, as the reserves dominated Boston and outscored the opposition 30-23 to cut the lead to 49-42 at halftime. Backup forward/center Kevin Seraphin, playing for the first time this year, went five for five from the field in the first half, scoring 10 points in 11 minutes on the court. Guard Jordan Crawford also contributed, mainly because he stopped shooting deep jumpers and actually attacked the basket -- something he needs to do a lot more often.
The Wizards fell behind by double digits again in the third quarter, but again the reserves led the team back a...

A ticket company made a mistake with one of the ads it was running to promote a ticket package they were trying to sell to Wizards fans.
It’s already been a tough season for the Washington Wizards, as their two best players John Wall and Nene are out indefinitely. That doesn’t leave many bright young faces to be the “face of the franchise” right now. The closest thing to it is 2nd overall pick Bradley Beal out of Florida. With struggling personnel comes struggles to sell tickets, and the fans need a little...
Those of you in the D.C. area who enjoy having a few beers before watching your favorite team play were treated to a great special from the Washington Wizards on Saturday night. As you can see from the advertisement above, the Wizards were running a promotion where $25 got you a ticket and access to $2 Budweisers for several hours before Washington’s game against the Boston Celtics...
Note: I’m aware John Wall won’t be playing tonight, but this is about the state of the Wizards, and Wall is in integral part of that conversation. So. Enjoy.One of my good friends has been dating a girl for nearly a year. She is his first girlfriend in a very, very long time, and as is wont to happen in such situations, he got very invested in the relationship very quickly. This...
Recently, the Washington Wizards put together a ticket promotion for opening night called "Bar Tour" where if someone bought a certain $25 dollar ticket, they could get $2 Budweisers during the game.The advertisement was created by TiqIQ and features 1st-round draft pick Bradley Beal on the ad which is actually a gaffe.Why you ask? Beal is 19-years-old and is not legally...

A night after what their coach called a ''flat game,'' Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics held the Washington Wizards to 1-for-14 shooting at the start, then were barely better at the end.
Strong defensive stands early - Washington's only scoring in the first 8 minutes came on Garnett's goaltending call - and late, plus Paul Pierce's 27 points, including...

WASHINGTON D.C. – The Boston Celtics are halfway to their first win of the season. The Celtics take a 49-42 lead over the Washington Wizards into the locker room. Boston cooled off after blowing the game open with a 17-2 run with 4:17 left in the first quarter. Those first two points for Washington came [...]
Well that was better, I guess. The Celtics survived a nail-biter against the Washington Wizards (WITHOUT John Wall and Nene) after they blew a sizable lead. But I’ll TRY to be positive and accept our first win of the season on the second night of a back-to-back, and chalk it up to the Celtics playing down to inferior competition. Let’s get to the recap:Sullinger got the...
Washington, D.C. — The Boston Celtics won’t go 0-82 this season. The Celtics (1-2) picked up their first win by beating the Washington Wizards (0-2) on the road, 89-86, Saturday night. Even though Boston was visiting, the crowd was in their favor from start to finish. A “Let’s Go Celtics” chant broke out with 6:40 remaining in [...]
Celtics came-out of the gate on fire tonight. KG was hitting shots early & often, the defense was focused & guys had a spring in their step. Rajon was distributing the ball well from the jump- he had 5 assists in the first quarter alone to help get the C’s out to an early 26-12 lead after 1.
The Wizards bench then got Washington right back into it behind Kevin Seraphin’s...

Jordan Crawford narrowly edges out Kevin Seraphin for player of the game. Jordan has been much maligned by me and Wizard fans in general for his “questionable” shot selection but tonight he was a one man scoring machine. Jordan proved that...
