Kobe Bryant expected to decide today if he'll have season-ending shoulder surgery. What does future hold for #lakers? wapo.st/1Cnmej5

Ben Standig

Pierce to media on Faired missing FTs at end of regulation: "Thank you, Kenneth." On Denver's last miss: "Thank You, thank you Ty Lawson."

Ben Standig

John Wall 19 pts, 16 assists last night. 6th time this season a player reached both marks. Wall responsible for 3 of those. (Per Nuggets)

Kris Humphries

HUGE win tonight...Gritty effort by the squad. Just touched down in LA. Business trip. sqor.com/posts/76ff10c7… http://t.co/4CqHfqmdCP

Jorge Castillo

Brian Shaw said he thought Wall stepped out when he called a timeout with 15.6 seconds left in OT. Wall then hit 2 FTs to make it 117-112.

Kevin Seraphin

Thanks for sending me this Nice picture of me busting @Kris Humphries butt at the warm up on snapchat lmao #kslife13 http://t.co/cIEWK1xukE

Jorge Castillo

FWIW, John Wall thought he was fouled when Kenneth Faried stripped him at the end of regulation.

Ben Standig

"Thank you, Ty Lawson." RT @J. Michael Falgoust: Fast break: Wizards escape Pierce's blunder to win in OT bit.ly/1EKGUBc #WizardsTalk

Jorge Castillo

Pierce on Kenneth Faried’s missed free throws: “Thank you, Kenneth.” Pierce on Ty Lawson’s missed jumper to tie it: “Thank you, Ty Lawson.”

Kevin Seraphin

Icing my knees after that good win in Denver #kslife #WizNuggets #WizKids http://t.co/bos8W0r9Vm

Jorge Castillo

Pierce got his black/cut eye from a Nene elbow. “You got to expect scars in the war.”

Ben Standig

I just turned on Miss Universe for first time tonight. Miss Colombia. Yep, I get it.

Ben Standig

Terps almost lost to Chris Collins. Wiz almost lost to JaVale's team. DeSean Jackson in position to cause int'l incident. All good. Whew.

Ben Standig

Win number 30 for the Wizards comes on Jan. 25. Last year, Feb 27. Before that, 2008. #WizardsTalk

Ben Standig

Good thing Wiz won so Wittman might not go bonkers when someone mentions Wall/Beal/Gortat/Nene took 5 FTs combined.

Ben Standig

Guessing Ty Lawson missed because after OT in the Mile High City, the ball clearly deflated. #amirite

Ben Standig

Are you kdding me. Would have been catostrophic indeed, Buck. Wizards win. Exhale after that.

Ben Standig

John Wall's first free throw attempts of the game. Makes them both. That's the only good part about that scenario. A very good part, tho.

Ben Standig

Nene just WWE tossed Faried to the ground. No call. Shhh.

Ben Standig

Wall and Lawson providing a great sneak preview of the games at Barry Farms this summer.

Ben Standig

Wall Star getting it done. Hump 21 and 14.

Jorge Castillo

And if you’re wondering why Humphries over Gortat, he just banked in another bucket. He’s got 19 and 13 off the bench.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards 5 for OT: Wall, Butler, Pierce, Humphries, Nene.

Jorge Castillo

Nene talking to referee Tom Washington about the traveling violations. He’s showing him the move he used both times.

Ben Standig

FWIW, Faried-Beal contact took place with around 3 seconds left. Ref hesistated and called foul late. 1.4 showed.

Ben Standig

OT. Onions on Faried for going for the block.

Jorge Castillo

Faried sort of makes up for his misses by blocking Pierce’s fadeaway jumper. Overtime.

Jorge Castillo

Andre Miller, he of the game-winning lob to Beal in Orlando earlier this season, is inbounding the ball and calls a timeout.

Ben Standig

Faried missed both FTs, wow. What's the free throw shooting frequency, Kenneth.

Jorge Castillo

Suddenly Beal’s 6th foul might be the best play of the night.

Jorge Castillo

Faried misses both free throws. Wow.

Ben Standig

Seems like there should be more time on the clock?

Jorge Castillo

Basket doesn’t count, but Faried going to line and Beal fouls out. Jaw-dropping sequence.

Jorge Castillo

105-105. 21.5 seconds left. #Wizards ball out of timeout.

Jorge Castillo

Nene took 3 shots in the 2nd half last night and 1 was a 3. Wizards are going to him often down the stretch.

Jorge Castillo

Nene’s been called for traveling twice. Someone in crowd yells, “This isn’t Rio de Janeiro, buddy.”

Ben Standig

Mike, MIke, Mike. Guess what day it is??? #HumpDay RT @CSNWizards: Kris Humphries has 15 points and 11 boards so far tonight #WizardsTalk

Ben Standig

John Wall, silly. Bounces a pass between his legs to Gortat for the slam bit.ly/1temTBn #WizardsTalk

Jorge Castillo

Beal is at the scorer’s table waiting to check in.

Jorge Castillo

Beal taken out after picking up his 5th foul. Wizards nursing 96-94 lead.

Jorge Castillo

Pepsi Center has a Carlton Cam and people in Denver don’t seem to have the Carlton Dance down. It’s really not that hard.

Ben Standig

Terps trailed 63-52 with 3:21 left. Finished 6-9 FG with 1 3-pointers and 3-3 FT. Made 16 FG over opening 36:39.

Ben Standig

Pats equipment manager, obviously. RT @steven_lebron: ESPN statement on Chad Ford. Spoiler: no one's responsible! bit.ly/1tekUNz

Jorge Castillo

I meant Wizards down 84-83. My bad. But they’re up 87-84 now. I promise.

Jorge Castillo

Unlike last night, #Wizards recover from early 3rd-qtr woes. Once down 82-74, they’re up 84-83 after 3Q. Pierce 9 in qtr, has 18 for game.

Jorge Castillo

Was that Wall pass between the legs?

Ben Standig

I forget, was Chris Collins in the Gone in 60 seconds game? Either way, ha. Sorry, @_elliottjsmith.

Ben Standig

Last I looked Terps were down 12 with like 3+ left. What the what, now up one?

Michael Lee

If this keeps up, #hawks can tie #lakers' record 33-game win streak 3/7 in PHI & break it 3/9 at home vs SAC

Jorge Castillo

Pierce back to the free-throw line. Already has 8 pts in the qtr.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards went away from Pierce in the 2nd half last night and he’s making sure that doesn’t happen again. Aggressive last few minutes.

Andrew Sharp

So far tonight Wiz announcers have called Nurkic "Nukeic" and "Norkic". Better get out of there before the Papa finds out

Ben Standig

WITTMAN FACE. Somebody GIF that zombie look, stat.

Jorge Castillo

Another ugly 3rd qtr so far for Wizards. 2 pts in almost 4 minutes and they’re down 68-61.

Ben Standig

Bad enough Terps look doomed, but it means Chris Collins wins. This is not cool, universe.

Ben Standig

Kris Humphries loves playing the Nuggets. Last four games vs. Denver: 14, 18, 20 and 11 points in 1H tonight.

Jorge Castillo

Humphries had 20 pts in the teams’ 1st meeting in early Dec. Already has 11 pts and 6 reb.

Ben Standig

Nene needs another 4 points for double figures. Would be season-high 5th straight game. Best run since 15 straight last season before inj.

Jorge Castillo

Humphries = 11p, 6r. Wall = 9p, 7a. Gortat = 5p, 10r. Pierce and Beal = 9p each. #Wizards shooting 53.3% w/ 6 turnovers. Up in rebs 24-20.

Ben Standig

Everybody does. Porter's lack of macho offset with all those tudes out there. RT @DwavY: i feel otto would benefit more playing with Wall

Jorge Castillo

Wooah. Wall almost hits a crazy buzzer beater from halfcourt. Hit the back of the rim. Game tied at 59 at the half.

Ted Leonsis

So Easy to Use, No Wonder It's Number 1: "The Facebook" dlvr.it/8F6J4J

Ben Standig

I know Witt won't even consider anything as radical as making Pierce 6th man, but I like idea of Otto playing with the starters.

Jorge Castillo

Porter in to finish the 2nd quarter. Wittman continues making adjustments.

Ben Standig

Oh, Otto Porter in for last 2 min of 1H.

Jorge Castillo

But it’ll be interesting to see if their legs hold up in the 4th qtr — if necessary — on this back to back.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman’s decision to put his starters in earlier in the 2Q is paying dividends. Wizards up 48-44.

Ben Standig

Denver PA announcer stealing Orioles intro of J.J. Hardy with strong emphasis of JAY JAY Hickson.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman makes adjustment with rotation: Every starter but Gortat back in after 8:31 timeout. Earlier than usual.

Ben Standig

Reason I mentioned that pregame was fear that he'd be latest reserve PG to get his versus Wiz.

Jorge Castillo

Jameer Nelson hits a trio of 3s in 2 minutes to give Nuggets a 37-33 lead. Nuggets point guards have 18 pts.

Ben Standig

Jameer. Nelson. Told ya he's been killing it since he arrived in Denver. #JMichaelTweet

Jorge Castillo

Remember when the Wizards weren’t supposed to see Aldridge or Lawson? That would’ve made this trip a bit easier.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards lead Nuggets 28-26 after 1Q. Wall = 7p, 4a. Lawson = 9p, 4a.

Jorge Castillo

Maybe just me, but seems like Wizards been fouling jump shooters a lot lately.

Ben Standig

Last 60 min, foes 22 of 34 from 3 against Terps. Turg, sup. MT @RobCarlinCSN: Northwestern 7-12 vs #Terps in 1st half.. #TerpsTalk

Ben Standig

When it comes to blocking, Marcin Gortat >> Tyler Polumbus.

Ben Standig

Reverse Otto alert: Martell Webster in. Usually means a DNP-CD for OP.

Jorge Castillo

Webster and Butler come off the bench on the wing. Looks like Porter remains out of the rotation.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman said rebounding and getting out in transition were going to be the keys. Wizards already have 8 fast break pts.

Jorge Castillo

Celia Cruz alert at Pepsi Center. #azucar

Jorge Castillo

1 thing about Beal’s game I didn’t expect when I 1st started covering this team: He can elevate and elevate quickly. Underrated athleticism.

Michael Lee

#hawks have won 16 in a row & 30 of 32.

Ben Standig

Nene averages 10+ pts for career against all teams but one. His old team. 9.7 vs. Nuggets. Just 3 games. 5.3 reb also worst vs. anyone.

Jorge Castillo

Cheers for Nene when he’s introduced.

Ben Standig

Wiz-Nuggets things: 1) Wiz 7-3 in 2nd game of B2B 2) Had S-H 35 assists in win over DEN 3) Jameer Nelson been killing it since joining Nuggs

Ben Standig

For those focused elsewhere, Wiz-Nuggets about to tip on @CSNMA. Beat Denver 119-89 on Dec. 5. Need win or match season-high 3-game skid.

Ben Standig

TV analyst suggests Turgeon starting Cekovsy cause his mom at game. Witt didn't play Otto at all as a rook in Memphis when dad was there.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall on the altitude in Denver: “The first three minutes is going to kill us but other than that it ain’t gonna bother us.”

Jorge Castillo

Gortat: “Right now it’s up to the coaches, but if I end up losing it then I think it’s going to be more about politics.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat on finishing in 4th among frontcourt players in all-star balloting” “Of course I was surprised.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

John Wall said he thinks the #Wizards should have a second all-star because of their standing in the Eastern Conference.

Ben Standig

Ex-Hokies star available to face Wizards. RT @Denver Nuggets: The #Nuggets have recalled Erick Green from Fort Wayne.

Jorge Castillo

Brian Shaw said Ty Lawson will play and start tonight. #Wizards

Ben Standig

If we/me point out when Cavs are struggling, only fair to note they have now won six straight. They are better when LeBron plays. Who knew.
