The Hornets have completely ignored Al Jefferson the last few possessions
That 3-pointer by Wall the first by a Wizard tonight not named Bradley, Drew or Rasual.
Drew Gooden with 30 minutes and counting. His most since 34 in the season opener.
Wittman staying with Gooden and Nene starts OT on the bench. He's only played 20 minutes.
This time, the Wizards don't allow the game-winning basket. Mo Williams missed a desperation 3 as time expired. OT.
Overtime in the big city. 96-96. John Wall saves the day.
Somebody guard George Hill
John Wall does it again. Jumper with 3.3 seconds left ties it at 96.
Charlotte decides to throw it into the post for an easy basket in crunch time. What a novel idea.
Drew Gooden has played 17 straight game minutes. I wonder how many times Witt has left Nene or Gortat in that long this season.
Last time Drew Gooden sat, Diamond Stone was still debating his choice of college.
Textbook Wizards defense out of that timeout. Precise, smart, greater than the sum of its parts
Gooden finds Sessions for a layup with a pretty pass. Gooden = 15p, 8r,, 3a, 5/6 from field, 3/4 from 3.
Wizards pulling ahead (away?) with Gooden, Sessions, Butler, Seraphin and Beal. 88-82 qith 7:!4 left.
Drew Gooden missed a 3-pointer. Life no longer makes sense.
Drew Gooden III: 13 pts, 4 rebs, 2 ast, 4/4 FG, 2/2 from 3, 2/2 from FT line.
Otto Porter chants coming from behind press row.
Otto Porter chant at Verizon Center.
Kidd-Gilchrist down and hurting. Play stopped.
Martell Webster looks like a lost puppy out there.
Beal and Gooden 4 for 4 from 3. All other Zards 0 for 9.
Two LeBron-like drives in a row for Beal, then Wall gets into the act with a midrange J. Its the 2014 playoffs all over again...
The Wizards and Raptors remain on pace for the world’s most depressing 4-5 matchup.
Wizards led 50-40 with 4:46 left in 2Q. Now trail 64-61 with 8:19 left in 3Q. AL Jefferson feasting inside.
Coach Wittman has to be cringing at all those dangerous skip passes the Wizards are throwing
24 minutes remaining. Good luck out there.
Jefferson called for foul on Wall with 0.1 left in the half and Wall sinks both FTs. Wizards lead 59-54 at half. Wall = 14p, 5a. Beal = 10p.
Two free throws by Wall give Wizards 59-54 halftime lead. Wall 14 and 5. Mo Williams 14 points.
I took a sip of my beer, looked at the tv, and I swore Black Thought was running the point for the Wizards. But that's just Will Bynum
And the answer, Will Bynum. Making his Wizards debut.
Will Bynum is in for his Wizards debut.
Gooden's been settling for jumpers just inside the 3-pt line lately but he just stepped back for a couple 3s in a row. 43-34 Wizards.
I think I've come around on Sessions. That trade wasn't a game-changer or anything but I think he fits this team's style better
North Bethesda's own Drew Gooden on fire.
Bradley Beal drains his first 3-point attempt 3-plus minutes into the 2Q.
Wizards with 7 blocks in the 1Q. Only seven of previous 72 games this season with more.
End of 1Q: Wizards 28 Hornets 19. Wall with 8 and 4. Wizards already with 7 blocks (Gortat 4, Pierce 3).
Martell ruins what would have been one of John Wall's best assists of the year by missing the three
Marcin Gortat has 4 blocks with 30 seconds left in 1Q. So it's 7 between him and Pierce.
Gortat just saved Drew Gooden for ruining the Wizards' floor balance by flying in for an offensive board on a corner 3 in transition
Paul Pierce with three blocks in nine minutes. Had two in all of March before this.
Paul Pierce has 3 blocks in 9 minutes.
Webster and Gooden first subs off the bench.
Martell Webster and Drew Gooden 1st off the bench.
Gortat just Bismack'd Biyombo at the rim but that was clearly a message for George Hill.
Both teams combined for seven straight baskets then back-to-back air balls.
Beal looking good despite the sore ankle. Aggressive attacking closeouts, getting to basket and creating.
Wizards first game against Kemba Walker this season, by the way. Out w/ injury earlier. Hornets 2-1 series lead.
Nitin Ramachandran, a 13-year-old boy battling brain cancer, is the 1st introduced for the Wizards during intros. Good stuff.
DeJuan Blair is out tonight for personal reasons, per Wizards.
Beal is starting.
Good news: Bradley Beal is starting.
Will Bynum wearing No. 1 for those keeping score at home. If you are, we need to talk.
Mo Williams will play for Hornets. Cody Zeller is out.
Beal remains gametime, per Wittman. No Humphries and Temple again. Bynum is available.
Beal gtd, per Wittman. Hump and Temple remain out.
Random, but interesting: Wizards are 15-16 with their standard starting lineup this season (Wall, Beal, Pierce, Nene, Gortat).
Everybody has gone through something that has changed them in a way that they could never go back to the person they once were.
That mandate would probably mean Patrick Ewing gets his first gig, so... Ewing at Verizon Center tonight with Hornets in town, by the way.
I don't get Chris Mullin for St. John's unless the Big East demands all teams are coached by former stars at the school.
NEED this W tonight !!
This is my pre-emptive “Let’s hold the Lil B jokes for a bit” plea.
Amazing the amount of speculation flowing over this St. John's in like 5 min. Also how much is conflicting. Note the next two retweets.
2nd in conference RPI or not, Big East not all the way back. Georgetown and Nova largely doing their part. St. John's holding BE back.
St. John's shouldn't consider any other candidate until New York's own Rick Pitino says no. Pitino has done it all. Now he can retake NY.
Otto Porter's net rating this season: 0.0. React accordingly.
Will Bynum will wear No. 1.
