Shabazz Napier just got a quick post-up tutorial from Andre Miller.
Wizards lead 28-22 after 1Q. They’re shooting 60 percent from the floor.
Otto Porter is playing the 2. That didn’t take long.
Andre Miller and Rasual Butler checking in. So Wittman has gone 9 deep in the 1st quarter. Rice and Seraphin others left.
What a grab by Mike Moustakas to end the inning...
Wall gets caught in the air and turns it over. On the next possession he hits an impossible fadeaway jumper from the baseline. Yup.
And thus begins the Mario Chalmers Backup Shooting Guard era.
Kris Humphries and Otto Porter Jr. have checked in.
There’s so little spacing without Beal (and Nene). But defense looks pretty good aside from a couple odd Pierce and Gortat mistakes.
This Pierce-Deng showdown is like 8 years too late.
Blue Man group is doing a crazy intro for NYK with flashing lights & stuff but my focus is really on something else http://t.co/m9OX6Sp0mX
Scoring change: Bosh’s shot to start the game now ruled a 3. So it’s 11-9 Wizards.
Chris Andersen checks in as a video of him curling dumbbells is played on the jumbotron.
Temple missed an open shot, but that’s the 1-3 pick and roll off Hawk with Wall and Pierce that we’ll see a ton this year.
Every member of the Heat starting 5 has shot a 3. They haven’t made 1.
OK I’ve changed my mind on these Wizards alternates. They look great.
If you had Drew Gooden III as the Wizards’ starting power forward on opening night when the preseason started you’re pretty good.
Back for another one. I'll admittedly be distracted during this CHI-NYK game. How many times are Royals in a Game 7? http://t.co/QplBDDqrvQ
LeBron James’s replacement is the first Heat player introduced.
Paul Pierce gets a warm reception from the crowd.
This game was scheduled as a 7:30 start, but won’t tip off until 8. And people are still filing in.
Guess Miami’s crowd can’t arrive late this way.
Kemba Walker’s size is always going to make this effort tough, but he has to develop some craftiness around the rim.
“The Charlotte Bobcats, huh? Stand back and please look at this.” http://t.co/GYGGAhkeVJ
No-brainer Wizards started Temple (Defense, Witt trusts) and Gooden (need anothers shooter).
Fantasy folk thinking RG3: Whether he starts in Week 9 or not, he will eventually. Add if you need a lottery ticket. Don't expect a hero.
Kris Humphries is taking jump shots. Doesn’t look like hand is hindering him. http://t.co/FFoHwxX9N0
League pass jest za darmo teraz przypominam
Trying to figure out game-watching priorities tonight. Wiz-Heat live in the early block, but what’s the backup? Which game gets morning DVR?
Every team should have a rapper in a semi-official position.
Gruden would like to have a decision made as soon as possible, but needs to see how Griffin comes out of these practices.
Both Griffin and McCoy will take first-team reps again in practice, Gruden said. Same as last week.
Gruden: "If he needs another week, we'll take another week."
This week is about Griffin getting a little more work with the first-team, Gruden said. He'll have to decide if Griffin is ready mentally.
Griffin finished a full practice.
The Vikings' defensive line has 20 of the team's 25 sacks. Griffen, with eight, is third in the league. Johnson, with five, is 14th.
I’ll chat with Paul Pierce on Wizards Pregame Live at 7pm on CSN from Miami. Hear how the incident in Chicago built mental toughness.
Bridgewater on Gruden, both U of L QBs: "I'm pretty sure we'll discuss the results of this Florida State/Louisville game Thursday night."
Zimmer: "Jay pretty much knows everything that we do. He's seen this for two years. We used to go against him every day."
Zimmer on Gruden: I like Jay an awful lot. We're friends. We worked together for two years. I really don't like playing against my friends.
Bosh: "LeBron made his choice. That was the best decision for him. It still ended up working out for everybody. I can’t be mad at it."
Chris Bosh on plans for MIA entering last offseason: "I thought we were going to stay together. That was the plan. For us to keep it going."
Wizards are 21-32 all-time in season openers (10-24 on the road).
The NFL announced Kai Forbath has been named the NFC special teams player of the week.
Thank God for all of His blessings and for allowing us to see another day !!
