Otto Porter = Moses Malone. Ginormous putback.

Ben Standig

Otto and the fading shots. Sounds like a really bad Hardy Boys mystery.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall midrange alert x2.

Michael Lee

Then, Steph Curry had Joakim Noah wondering wuh happened vine.co/v/OTP33DiZqu5

Ben Standig

8-32 on 3's since 1/11 RT @J. Michael Falgoust: Butler has clanged 3 3s in a row. This game could be in the bag if he'd hit #WizardsTalk

Michael Lee

First, Steph Curry hit 'em with the halfcourt alley-oop pass vine.co/v/OTPiJL7l0LD

Ben Standig

Past midnight, meaning this is in fact Hump Day.

Michael Lee

Steph Curry straight clownin'

Jorge Castillo

Rasual Butler hits a 3 to give the Wizards a 78-76 lead. 10:10 left in 4Q.

Jorge Castillo

Lakers lead 76-75 after 3Q. Beal = 17p. Wall = 16p, 13a, 8r. Ellington = 24p. Clarkson = 16p. Wizards shooting 50.9%. Just 2 turnovers in 3Q

Jorge Castillo

Looked like Webster and Lin banged knees. He’s limping off to the locker room. Temple is in.

Jorge Castillo

Webster is down holding his right knee after colliding with Lin.

Ben Standig

Triple-double alert: John Wall with 14 points, 13 assists, eight rebounds. Still 3Q. #WizardsTalk

Ben Standig

Otto Porter dunked that with Joe Jackson-level authority.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards on 11-0 run to cut lead to 68-65. Wall has 14 points, 13 assists, and 8 rebounds.

Michael Lee

Thanks for the shout out @Complex_Sports. That list of Kobe Bryant's accomplishments since 2004 at the end is crazy youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=…

Ben Standig

Catching up. How many people have noted Jordan Clarkson was the pick Wizards sold to Lakers. Everyone? Just @Truth_About_It?

Ben Standig

I like angry Bradley Beal, especially when he drives with fury.

Jorge Castillo

Jackson just missed 2 three-pointers during Lakers warmups.

Michael Lee

Lakers showing Dr. Jerry Buss tribute video at halftime. Today would’ve been his 82nd birthday.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards shooting 50% but so is LA and they have 10 turnovers to LA’s 5.

Jorge Castillo

Lakers lead Wizards 57-46 at half. Ellington = 20p, Clarkson = 13p. Wall = 10p, 7a, 7r.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall has 10 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds and 2 steals with 6.3 seconds left in the 1st half.

Michael Lee

Kevin Durant has been dunking with ferocity of 1,000 Russell Westbrooks but #thunder remains outside playoff picture: wapo.st/1zWdT6u

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat just put Robert Sacre on a plakat.

Ben Standig

More LA radio fun: Ron Artest World Peace on the broadcast.

Jorge Castillo

Carlos Boozer’s jumper gives the Lakers a 42-26 lead.

Andrew Sharp

Here for Wiz Lakers. So far the highlight is Ron Artest showing up and saying hi to about 50 people in 90 seconds

Ben Standig

Lastly, the Lakers announcers also stunned Wayne Ellington producing like a young Kobe. I say also cause aren't we all.

Jorge Castillo

Wayne Ellington’s high this season was 13 pts. He has 16 with 9:56 left in 2Q.

Ben Standig

As for John Wall, one of LA announcers ranks him 3rd among NBA point guards. Behind Curry and Lillard, ahead of CP3 and Russ. Lotta praise

Ben Standig

Lakers radio team puzzled why fans still boo Kris Humphries. Bring up the marriage and breakup. "He's the one who got his heart broken."

Jorge Castillo

Lakers lead 31-24 thru 1Q. Ellington and Clarkson each have 11p. Wall = 4p, 5a, 4r. Porter = 5p.

Ben Standig

Interesting listening to Lakers radio broadcast. After Miller replaces Wall: "From a Lamborghini at point guard to a pickup truck."

Jorge Castillo

Wizards second-round pick Jordan Clarkson has 11 pts on 5/7 shooting for the Lakers.

Michael Lee

ICYMI: Kobe Bryant once wanted to follow Michael Jordan & play for the #wizards: wapo.st/1JP566a #lakers http://t.co/1LUXFvjxmf

Jorge Castillo

Wall is playing off the ball more than usual so far tonight.

Jorge Castillo

Wayne Ellington has 11 pts at 5:30 mark of 1Q. Lakers lead 19-12.

Michael Lee

From Showtime to Lowtime RT @TheNoLookPass Your Lakers starters for tonight against the Wizards! http://t.co/HnL8Pdywr6

Jorge Castillo

1st #Wizards possession: Wall penetrates, kicks out to Porter for corner 3.

Ben Standig

Sits or starts for Otto. I mentioned other day idea of using Pierce as 6th man to help the 2nd unit and OP. @Jorge Castillo shud ask Witt.

Two big problems I see with Dallas in the playoffs: Rondo’s shooting and Dirk’s defensive rebounding. Can’t really fix either.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall is playing tonight. #Wizards starters: Wall, Beal, Porter, Nene, Gortat. #Lakers starters: Clarkson, Ellington, Kelly, Hill, Sacre

Mike Prada

The Grizzlies have become very good at keeping bodies moving on post ups so the defense has just a little bit more to worry about.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall is warming up in uniform. Wittman said he’s a game-time decision.

Ben Standig

Thanks to the responders. RT @imPULSEivity: sore left Achilles. Missed shootaround this morning

Ben Standig

Been out of the Wizards loop last hour or so. John Wall game-time decision cause...Hurt? Needs a rest? Lakers?

Ben Standig

More Matt Stainbrook funnies. Arriving for media session postgame, he said softly, "I'm just here so I won't get fined." (h/t/ @JGWhiteAP)

Ben Standig

Repeat performance: No 21 Georgetown can't solve Xavier ow.ly/I3Mug http://t.co/I7h6bMMYkl #hoyas

Mike Prada

Feeling a little foolish that I was lukewarm on the Jeff Green acquisition. He’s been great for Memphis.

Ben Standig

FWIW, JT3 wasn't mopey at all speaking postgame. Seen him more down after wins. Despite the loss, I think he feels very good about things.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman on Kobe: “Basketball players like him come around once in a lifetime…you’re not going to see another one probably like him.”

Ben Standig

JT3 praising Xavier's defense: "They made it hard for (DSR) to breathe."

Ben Standig

Xavier's Matt Stainbrook said a couple of guys on the team didn't know what "D.C" stood for before this trip.

Ben Standig

Xavier met him this trip RT @CasualHoya: John Boehner is laying in his tanning bed while smoking a cigarette & smiling. This sickens me.

Mike Prada

The Grizzlies are so, so deep.

Ben Standig

Hoyas match season-low with 53 points, which is what they scored in previous loss at Xavier.

Ben Standig

Final: Xavier 66 Hoyas 53. Less said the better.

Ben Standig

Hoyas last basket made it 54-47 with 3:56 left. No baskets since. Inside final minute. Xavier 62-49 with 50.2 seconds left.

Jorge Castillo

Randy Wittman said John Wall’s status is a game-time decision. Paul Pierce is out.

Ben Standig

Smith's 3-point play cuts lead to 54-45. First time Hoyas trailed by single digits since 17-8.

Jorge Castillo

Byron Scott, what’s been your team’s calling card so far this season? “That we get hurt a lot.”

Ben Standig

Georgetown back within 10 once again. Xavier has been perfect when it comes to fending off the Hoyas previous rallies.

Ben Standig

Xavier 48-35 U8. Now seems like a good time to unleash the Bowen-Peak-DSR-Copeland with Hop or Trawick lineup and press, press, press.

Ben Standig

Screams from Xavier's bench: " WIN THE WAR. WIN THE WAR."

Ben Standig

That 3 by Bluiett gave Xavier its largest lead at 48-30. Davis and Bluiett with 27 points. Hoyas have a bit less.

Ben Standig

Helping its brand for sure. RT @AjayAtayee: VCU not doing bad ...

Ben Standig

Skateboarding bulldog alert. Maybe Jack can stop Myles Davis.

Ben Standig

Things looking rough for the locals all over the place. twitter.com/GW_MBB/status/…

Ben Standig

Amazing that Hoyas are only down 10. Plenty of time. Not turning the ball over is the issue.

Ben Standig

Hoyas with 17 turnovers, already a season-high in regulation with 13+ minutes left.

Ben Standig

Hoyas need both of those things in abundance right about now.

Ben Standig

I'd like to see Tre Campbell and Aaron Bowen in sooner than later. Campbell brings confidence and playmaking. Bowen makes rim-rocking plays.

Ben Standig

Copeland sinks a 3 and, hell, Hoyas *only* down 33-23. But, Smith picks up 3rd foul on the play 16:35 left.

Ben Standig

DSR with buckets on consecutive possessions after going without one in 1H. Alas, Xavier matched both.

Ben Standig

We're focusing on missed shots and turnovers, as we should. Let's also note ZERO offensive rebounds for Hoyas. if you go 4-16, caroms exist.

Ben Standig

Dec. 31 - Ranked Hoyas lose at Xavier, fall out of rankings. Jan. 27 - Ranked Hoyas trail Xavier 29-16 at half. Deja vu all over again?

Ben Standig

Copeland gets the basket after Hoyas go 11:16 with a FG. Trail 29-16 at half.

Ben Standig

Yikes. RT @gene_wang: #Hoyas 10-plus minutes without FG. Trawick with more turnovers (5) than team has FGs (3).

Ben Standig

Still no baskets, but Hoyas get crowd into game with four free throws and some defensive stops. Baby steps. 23-12.

Ben Standig

Xavier 23-9 U4. Hoyas almost 8 minutes without a FG. That assertive edge that finished off Marquette has been replaced with uncertainty.

Ben Standig

It's not that Joshua Smith hasn't made a basket. It's that he's only attempted one.

Ben Standig

Things now very serious for Hoyas. Xavier with 12 straight points for a 23-8 lead.

Ben Standig

Some stats are telling. Hoyas with NINE turnovers in the opening 12:37. Had 10 in overtime win at Marquette.

Ben Standig

Nobody tell @NicoleAuerbach what the Hoyas are doing offensively or she'll be forced to write another article about low scoring hoops.

Ben Standig

Xavier 17-8 U7. Hoyas with 9 turnovers and Xavier on 12-2 run.

Ben Standig

Hoyas struggling for baskets, but now Hopkins to FT line so all is good. Or not. From 11-12 at Marquette to missing both here.

Mike Prada

Actually, you know which non All-Star would have a great chance in the cumulative All-Star Sat. night? Gordon Hayward.

Mike Prada

Let’s say you could pick anyone in the league for the last tweet, as long as they aren’t an All-Star. Eric Bledsoe is my first choice.

Ben Standig

Xavier 9-6 U 12. It's a turnover and clank fest so far for Hoyas. Four turnovers, 2 for 7 from the field.

Mike Prada

A better question: who would win if the same four people did all three Sat. night events (no shooting stars) and got a cumulative score?

Ben Standig

L.J Peak enters and sinks a 3-pointer. Notable because over previous six games he went 0 for 11. #Hoyas
