However, Washington outlasted the Raptors thanks to some good defense and out-rebounding Toronto 49-39. It's the thrid straight win for the Wiz and 14th in the last 22 games. This is only the second road game the Wizards have won against an Eastern Conference opponent. [Milwaukee was the other.] The Wizards have won 7 of their past 9 games and are 7-4 this month, guaranteeing them a winning record for the month of February.
It was not an aesthetically pleasing game, as Washington missed 9 straight shots during one stretch of the first quarter. The Wizards hit only 27% of their shots in the first quarter, but led 17-16 because the Raptors were so careless with the ball. Toronto committed 12 turnovers before halftime.
The Wiz shot only 42% from the field and a...

His talent and potential has never been questioned, dating back to his days as an All-American high school prospect, but the real question continues to linger: can he lead a team and constantly play...
Last night Bradley Beal dropped 20/6/2 with a steal and 2 threes in 39 minutes. Back in early December I told you to grab two Washington Wizards, one was named Jordan Crawford. The other was named Bradley Beal. Yes, I’m aware you had heard of them before! However, up to that point neither had played particularly well but my Magic 8 Ball who moonlights as a Crystal Ball on weekends...

The Wiz gathered themselves this weekend, though, and came storming back against two of the better teams in the Western Conference. On Friday night the Wizards hosted the Denver Nuggets and completed their...
