Grubauer leads the Capitals onto the ice for warm-ups.
Caps tweeps, SAT-esque question for you. In terms of other sports, drop off from Holtby to Grubauer is like xx to xx?
The Wizards own the 19th and 49th picks in June’s draft.
Trotz on Holtby: "You'll have to see at warm-ups." Back-up plan? "We have a plan. Let's focus on Braden right now."
Feel like I should download the Drizzy keyboard before I get on this flight.
Also, Beal called Pierce an "oracle" today. So, there's that.
Pierce at the 4 for big minutes makes me a little more optimistic. Still not especially high on the Wizards’ chances, though.
Having Pierce at the 4 also gives Washington the option of switching more on defense, which is what the Nets did last yr vs. Toronto.
Random: I'd be shocked if the Wizards don't use Pierce at the 4. Think we're going to see it quite a bit.
Bovada lists the Wizards as slight underdog (+160) against the Raptors (-190) in the series.
Just realizing that Rob Ford is no longer the mayor of Toronto. Bummer for those of us looking for easy blog posts.
Pierce on scouting Raps: "We got a lot of guys that don’t pick up things quick. So 2 get 2 or 3 days is really going 2 work 2 our advantage"
Trotz, on what's been bothering Holtby: "None of your business." Said he felt under the weather in Game 1, was why he missed yesterday.
Justin Peters said he's been told that Braden Holtby will play tonight. We'll see.
" Show me your friends and I'll show you your future." Please be careful who you give your heart to. Have a blessed day!!
Korn putting Peters and Grubauer through the same drills, pre-morning skate, that Holtby and Peters went through Wednesday.
Mitch Korn on the ice at KCI speaking with Justin Peters and Philipp Grubauer.
The Capitals have recalled Philipp Grubauer from Hershey. Rather odd timing. Braden Holtby didn't participate in optional yesterday.
Teams consistently in my TL far more than expected: Denver Nuggets, New York Cosmos, New York Mets, Miami Dolphins.
Random tweet: John Krasinski so good job playing a low key character on The Office, yet tries too hard on his TV appearances.
Relax Nite at the movies !! http://t.co/jIgyTECd7N
Hey I was just kidding earlier. You never have to turn on your television if you don't want to.
Whenever they retire we need Kobe and Pierce to host an NBA talk show on HBO where they just curse out the entire league every Sunday night.
Pierce: "There’s nothing like playoff basketball. The intensity, the smell of the popcorn, the national televised games every night."
Does the new HGH testing mean Westbrook has to stop eating uranium for breakfast and injecting lead into his bloodstream?
Porter said the ankle is fine.
LeBron James: "I understand the target that we have on our back as athletes & the jealousy that comes from that sometimes when you’re out."
Wittman said Otto and Nene are good to go.
So Britt apologized and mentioned that high road that was previously occupied by Denny Green. Lets get back to Star Wars and Scott Brooks.
Pierce also copped to team discussions about using him as a stretch 4 this series. Yes, I know.
Pierce said he played some 4 at practice today. Wittman told him to be ready for it.
Otherwise PP praised the Raps, especially their ability to penetrate. Tough defensive challenge.
Pierce made it a point to give Raptors credit. “Not to take anything from Toronto. They’re a great team in their own way.”
Pierce clarified his Toronto lacks the "it" comment. Basically, Raps lack that stud (LeBron, etc) who can take over a series solo.
Pierce clarified his “It” comment on Raptors. Said he meant that they and other East teams don’t have the superstars to take over games.
No Garrett Temple for Game 1. Sounds shaky he'd be available for round 1 at all, at least not early.
