Wizards next play Thursday at 8 pm ET against Clippers/Heat. Will be their first 2014 game in Cox Pavilion. Enter tourney as 4-seed.
If Harold Reynolds were a kid at home, he wouldn't be having a blast. He'd be in bed because it's 10:20 p.m. and in the fifth inning.
I just spoke with Trevor Booker here in Vegas. His thoughts about the Jazz, contract offer from Wizards coming shortly on CSN.
Second, Cassell went Charles Barkley when asked for thoughts on John Wall's bucket hat. "Tuurrrrible."
Two quick postgame items. First, Sam Cassell said Khem Birch would make the roster if his call. UNLV big man had 11 boards today.
Fitting end to this game.
He’s surrounded by fringe talent, but haven’t been that impressed with Napier thus far.
Cassell called an immediate timeout after that backdoor cut. Wasn’t happy with GRJR falling asleep on the back side.
Bench was going to explode if Otto completed that behind the back move.
Al Harrington shouting “NEXT PLAY” at Rice after that charge. They’re trying to keep his demeanor level.
The Wizards went from stellar to sloppy in 3Q.Lead 68-60 entering the 4th. Rice/Otto combined for 34 points on 14-18 FG.
Sloppy stuff from the Wizards right now.
Cassell now shouting at Burton for not cutting well on a blown pass. “YOU’RE THE POINT GUARD. IN THIS LEAGUE’S, IT’S ALWAYS YOU."
Otto needed that three to go down. Had made a few mistakes in a row — Wiz bench upset he didn’t present himself in the middle of MIA’s press
Sam Cassell jumped off the bench to admonish Otto for not using that ball screen correctly.
Maybe GRJR should be the Wizards backup rim protector.
Damn, GRJR got up to stuff that shot.
One of the first mistakes GRJR’s made — drifted too far off his man, then closed out poorly for a foul.
Glen Rice Jr. just bowled through about seven defenders for a layup.
Great, tight curl by Otto, but he exposed the ball on his finish. Has to fix that.
John Wall is here wearing a multi-colored sailor's hat he got from I don't know here.
So, Paul Pierce comes off the bench so Wizards can start Rice next to Beal and Wall, right? Wow did GRJR just hammer the Heat. 16 1Q pts.
Sixteen first-quarter points for GRJR, including an absurd leaner on a 1-4 flat set. He can’t miss.
Rice is so much stronger than the guys guarding him. He can just float into them and draw fouls.
Wizards showing no mercy versus Shabazz Napier and the Heat. Up 28-6 with 2:42 left in 1Q. Rice with 12, Otto 7.
This is incredible. Otto and GRJR can’t miss.
Glen Rice Jr. is shooting like Glen Rice Sr. After his 3rd straight made FG, this one from 3, someone from the crowd yells, "OH MY GOD!!"
How many players out here have been as impressive as Glen Rice Jr? Not just the scoring: playing great D too, solid playmaking.
Great D in isolation by Glen Rice Jr. on Napier. Al Harrington among those that jumped off the bench to congratulate him.
Attention, Randy Wittman: The first play of every game should be designed for Otto Porter. I believe he's 3-3 on first shots in SL.
Just walked Thibs chatting up Juwan Howard. Maybe that's the post-Boozer plan.
Really nice spin move from LaVine off the curl. They're using him more off ball than on it.
Who knows how the moves work out. The world is unpredictable. I kinda love how Wizards manuevered last 4 or so days for present and 2016.
Bulls using McDermott a little bit like they used to use Korver. Been impressed with what I've seen of him so far.
The Humphries deal is part of the 8.5 million trade exception with Houston for Trevor Ariza. Another quality move by Wiz adding veterans.
Welcome @Krishumphries !!!
Easy shorthand to say otherwise and there’s no much of a semantics difference, but you don’t really “trade” trade exceptions.
To those writing about this deal: Wizards not technically trading a trade exception to BOS, they are using a trade exception to acquire Kris
Kris Humphries best season came in '11-'12 with Nets avg. 13ppg. 11.0 rebs. playing 62 games.
Kris shot really well from mid-range last year, so he’s a good fit. He’s just really bad defensively, but perhaps less bad as a 5.
I’m not really a Kris Humphries fan, but price is fine.
Was killing it before we had to stop because of lightning. Smh http://t.co/UlaZNp8edc
There’s definitely another Wizards move coming, but pending what that actually is, I would have thought about meeting Booker’s price.
So, about that DeJuan Blair rumor...
Chinatown is now a Trevor-free zone. Not even Matich allowed in.
