Wow, did Joe Lunardi go off the top rope on Seth Greenberg tonght?
Marcin Gortat Minutes Played – By Quarter This Season 1st 621 2nd 253 3rd 620 4th 154 (0 in 4th quarter vs Warriors)
Hope all the people that killed Derrick Rose for not rushing back from previous injuries drop him a nice note. Maybe even a gift bag.
Jabari Parker. Kobe Bryant. Carmelo Anthony. Chris Bosh. Derrick Rose. This season, man...
This Derrick Rose news is so depressing....
Prayers up for the homie Drose...Wish u a speedy recover
Derrick Rose :-(
Derrick Rose. Damn.
But, scientifically speaking, can you break steel? I feel like you can.
Pierce said he banged knees and should be fine. “Can’t break steel.”
Paul Pierce said he banged knees, should be ok. "Can't break steel."
Gortat clearly frustrated. Usually has a lot to say but not tonight.
That “next question” came after a long pause.
Gortat was asked if he’s discouraged/surprised he didn’t play in the 4th after playing well since break: “Next question.”
We've reached a point in the season where even Marcin Gortat doesn't have much to say.
Wittman: Gortat didn’t play 4th to counter small lineup. Asked if Gortat’s size would’ve been advantage he said it was decision he made.
Nothing about college hoops I hate more than the finger wagging about court storming.
Paul Pierce getting helped off the court, sort of. Looks like he's trying to avoid putting weight on his right foot.
Pierce hurt on the final play. He’s walking off with help from Nene and Seraphin.
Wizards lose 114-107. Pierce down on the court.
Wizards rebounds are hard to come by without a true 4 on the floor
Season-high 25 turnovers by Wizards.
Warriors went uber-small ball with Green at center. Wiz finally counter by moving Pierce to stretch-4.
There's 3 minutes left and Gortat's still not on the floor in the fourth quarter.
Sign as we're leaving Xfinity Center: "Kaminsky reads terms and conditions"
Wizards announce 9th sellout of the season
Wizards say it’s a sellout. No. 9 this season.
Both Steph Curry and Paul Pierce each had 14 pts. In third quarter.
Kinda wish i was at Bentley's tonight
Fear the (burning) mattresses.
Steph is so fun that even road fans gasp every time he has the ball.
Nobody more fun to watch live than Steph Curry. That includes Springsteen.
Steph Curry got this crowd giddy.
Steph Curry is giving the Wizards the business to close out this third quarter
You have all been invited to the Steph Curry show. Please remain calm.
Paul Pierce sinks three FTs. Has 21 points. His most since scoring 22 against Bulls on Jan. 14.
Terps gonna run a lot of Elbow clear for Wells, I'm sure. (Not sure that's exactly what the play is called but you get the idea)
Wizards playing with oomph so far. They're also making shots. Funny how that makes everything look better.
Wall’s jumper ties it at 68. Wizards have 20 turnovers but outrebounding Warriors 31-15 and shooting 58%.
Momentum has returned. Very quick 6-0 run capped by Wall's jumper ties the game at 68-68. Wizards now shooting 58%.
The Warriors are eventually gonna hit those open 3s. I’m assuming.
The Warriors should be up by at least 15pts. They are scoring effortlessly, while the Wizards are moving heaven and earth for every basket
Wizards cut lead to 3. Pierce's chase down block brings bench to their feet. Then Gortat takes fadeway J and Green drains 3. Momentum, gone.
Terps getting killed by UW's side pick and pop on the left. Have to more aggressively trap the ball handler if they're gonna allow middle.
The Wizards 53% shooting and 25-13 rebounding edge is keeping them close despite the 18 turnovers. Something has to give in the 2nd half
This is the Wizards' 57th game. The 18 turnovers ties for 11th most in any game this year. It's halftime.
The Wizards have 18 turnovers and are down 3 pts. 18. 3.
A quarter-ending play for the Wizards that actually made sense. Wall drew the double team and found the open man (Humphries)
Another end-of-qtr shot goes to someone other than Wall and Humphries hits the jumper. Wizards down 54-51 at half.
Half: Warriors 54 Wizards 51. Rather amazing it's this close since Wiz committed 18 turnovers. Gortat 12 points. Curry 13
2 for 1, right, Witt?
Nice stretch for Temple. A block, a three and a near strip of Stephen Curry
Garrett Temple's full court high light sequence of the year right there. Blocking a layup on one end, nailing a 3 on the other.
Temple pins Barnes’s layup against the glass then hits a 3. Wizards down 50-47.
The Wizards have 17 turnovers in 22 minutes against the Warriors and are down just 6 pts. That’s kind of crazy.
Bad spacing between Nene and Gortat right now. They are making it difficult for Wall to maneuver
The Wizards have committed 14 turnovers. 14. We've played 17 minutes.
Coach Wittman spoke before the game about how careless turnovers are killing the team. Wall is in the midst of doing just that
Everybody on the Wizards just lectured Seraphin during that timeout. I think G-Wiz even offered post-up tips
Seraphin managed to save face against Speights by scoring consecutive baskets in the paint
Wall floater as time expires cuts Warriors lead to 30-28 after 1Q. Curry = 13p, 4a; Gortat = 8p, 4r; Wall = 6p, 3a. Wizards have 9 turnovers
John Wall drives like 70 feet for a running floater at the buzzer...good. Warriors 30-28 after one.
We live in a basketball world where Ramon Sessions can bowl over Marreese Speights
Even Steph Curry’s misses are pretty.
Oh, and Golden State still using Steph Curry, who just did Steph Curry things from 3.
Wizards going with Sessions, Butler, Webster, Seraphin, Gortat to end the 1q with game tied 26-26.
Melo Trimble is quick. Damn.
Compared to the last two games, Gortat looks much more aggressive on both ends of the floor. Its still early though
Kevin Seraphin the first off the bench for Nene. Wittman went with Seraphin/Gortat frontline Sunday and is doing it again.
Paul Pierce guarding Steph Curry defines new school vs old school. Curry drains a 3, then Pierce does the same.
Wizards have a size advantage with Draymond Green guarding Nene or Gortat. They attacked. He picked up 2PF and now, a tech.
If you're 79 seconds late you've missed a 9-0 start by the Wizards.
1:19 into the game, the Wizards are up 9-0.
Interesting that Warriors got Bogut on Nene and Green on Gortat.
Bogut on Nene for the 1st possession and Nene spins right by him for 2.
Game time is upon us. Best of luck to all invested.
They’re celebrating Chinese New Year at Verizon tonight so the players’ names are in Chinese for intros.
Nene was just practicing his post moves against Martell Webster. Perhaps he got the memo that Draymond Green will be checking him tonight
Temple starting for Wizards. Steph Curry starting for Warriors.
Steve Kerr called the Wizards a "traditional,old school" team. I don't know if that's an insult or a compliment given the team's recent skid
