Hoyas in Omaha Saturday. I'm sure JT3 happy Creighton got No. 1 here. RT @McNuttMonica: Creighton got their first w in Big East play.

Ben Standig

North Bethesda's own Drew Gooden with the J and two FTs. Those are his first points since Dec. 19. #WizardsTalk

Michael Lee

This much is true, ooh...this much is true, ooh, ooh RT @KennyDucey: Russell Westbrook on the Knicks: "They're an NBA team"

Ben Standig

Suns have outscored Wizards 79-58 over last three head-to-head quarters.

Jorge Castillo

So are Seahawks d-linemen Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.

Jorge Castillo

Suns lead 29-17 after 1Q. Gortat = 8p, 3r. Humphries = 4p, 6r. Dragic, Markieff Morris = 8p each. Wizards have 4 turnovers & just 2 assists

Jorge Castillo

Otto Porter, not Martell Webster, off the bench to replace Pierce.

Ben Standig

If you're wondering why Gooden is in for the 1Q, no Nene tonight. That sore foot thing. bit.ly/1LjleAt

Jorge Castillo

Drew Gooden III and Rasual Butler are the first off the bench.

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat asked for a clearout then spun off Len for a 2-handed dunk. He’s got 6 pts. Wizards up 13-12 with 5:31 left.

Ben Standig

Alex Len allowing a guy on the cover of Forbes magazine to dunk on him.

Zac Boyer

Capitals defeat Penguins, 4-0, to snap four-game losing streak.

Michael Lee

Looks like Kyrie made LeBron happy vine.co/v/OTLdrV3lPPd

Ben Standig

I recall at the time @haralabob saying he didn't like the Mavs acquiring Rondo... twitter.com/Jeff_Caplan/st…

Michael Lee

I repeat: 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

Zac Boyer

And Green scores, because why not? Capitals up 4-0.

Zac Boyer

Capitals take 3-0 lead on Penguins after Eric Fehr lifts one into the net. Strong forecheck by Brooks Laich helped set up goal.

Zac Boyer

Steve Downie and Michael Latta dropped the gloves, not long after Downie failed to goad Tom Wilson into fisticuffs. Latta held his own.

Michael Lee

Zac Boyer

Sidney Crosby: 3-for-18 on faceoffs tonight.

Ben Standig

Wait, did I hear @jdonaldsonCSN just say Kevin Ray (??) is doing the broadcast with Phil Chenier. No Buck? Say it with me...Dagger

Ben Standig

Most seasons without Nene meant a loss for the Wizards. 4-3 this season with four straight wins.

Michael Lee

Kevin Durant isn't playing. I get that. But OKC isn't really going to lose to the #knicks, is it?

Chris Miller

A sore right foot will keep @NeneHilario42 out of tonight's game with the @Phoenix Suns. #WizardsTalk

Michael Lee

Crisis averted. Anthony Davis has returned.

Michael Lee

Anthony Davis's awkward landing. Had to be helped off the court. Still no injury update: vine.co/v/OTLti1epuhn (via @JoshuaZavadil)

Zac Boyer

That's now 13 goals in 13 games for Ovechkin, who has 29 on the year.

Jorge Castillo

Martell Webster is active. Said he was fine last night.

Zac Boyer

Ovechkin one-timer from his happy spot on the power play. Caps up, 2-0, with 2:41 left in the second period.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards listing Nene’s injury as sore right foot, same foot with plantar fasciitis.

Jorge Castillo

#Suns starters: Bledsoe, Dragic, Tucker, Morris, Len.

Jorge Castillo

Nene is not playing tonight. He’s inactive. #Wizards starting 5: Wall, Beal, Pierce, Humphries, Gortat.

Ben Standig

Ben Standig

Duke lost. No other details required. At No. 2 Virginia Saturday.

Jorge Castillo

The Wizards are the first team from DC to crash Super Bowl week in a couple decades. #analysis

Mike Prada

“It’s not too late to change my All-Star vote, right?” -Eastern Conference coaches that didn’t choose Kyrie Irving.

Jorge Castillo

Wall said there was never a doubt about playing tonight but he’s still sick and dealing with migraines. He plans on seeing a doctor Friday.

Ben Standig

Hahahahahaha, Jerian Grant.

Ben Standig

Duke 70 Notre Dame 71 1:40 left. ESPN2. Go watch.

Mike Prada

Kings were up two when Cousins committed two fouls in a row on the same pay. Raptors on a 26-6 run since.

Ben Standig

Kyrie with 50. Cavs with 92. RT @CassidyHubbarth: Fifty! 5-0 GETTING buckets

Mike Prada

Cousins’ third foul came when he was super late stepping out on a side pick and roll really early in the shot clock. Has to cut those out

Jorge Castillo

Hornacek said he told his team they need to push ball to capitalize on Wizards’ tough stretch. Told them they could see benefits in 2nd half

Jorge Castillo

Wittman said he thinks, given how Wizards have played, that they deserve a second all-star. Said he hopes coaches recognize them.

Andrew Sharp

"Kyrie has 45 just means Dion's gonna have 46. Let's do this." -- Dion Waiters rubbing his hands together talking to a confused MSG usher

Ben Standig

With Mike Ditka dressed as a cop. RT @Benjamin Hochman: Cool pic of Wade's dad and Earl Campbell http://t.co/lQOSaCpqjr

Jorge Castillo

John Wall is playing tonight.

Jorge Castillo

Pierce is already in uniform and warming up out on the floor.

Ben Standig

Was it me or did that Okafor jumper-bank look odd from that angle with his size?

Zac Boyer

I'd like to think that was all because Zach Sill spells his name wrong.

Zac Boyer

Absolute haymakers between Sill and Wilson there. Wilson probably won the thing, but minus points for briefly falling to a knee.

Ben Standig

I'm projecting him in the Orioles rotation by 2018. RT @MedcalfByESPN: Project Pat Connaughton

Ben Standig

Nobody excited RT @JPFinlayCSN: #Redskins get Barry MT @RapSheet: Wade Phillips says #Broncos hired him to be DC. “I’m excited"

Zac Boyer

Ovechkin gently redirected what looked like a saucer pass from the left point from Alzner up over Fleury's right pad. Caps up, 1-0.

Ben Standig

Nobody complaining about this Duke-Notre Dame game. Actually, what am I saying. Somebody on Twitter is bitching about lack of D.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards are playing their 4th game in 4 cities in 5 nights. #Suns haven’t played since Sunday and are in 7th game of 8-game homestand.

Ben Standig

Jerani Grant dunks like Jordan and shoots like Bird. Fine, that's too much, but...

Mike Prada

Telling that the Raptors have Amir on Cousins instead of Valanciunas.

Zac Boyer

Caps' line rushes have Beagle with Ovechkin and Backstrom and Latta in as the fourth-line center between Chimera, Wilson. Burakovsky out.

Ben Standig

Already yawning and the Wizards don't start until 1030. Nap at this time = danger, but another five hours seems winning-with-Rex daunting.

Michael Lee

OKC has title hopes but remains in fight for 8th seed. Kevin Durant is still confident: “I like our team." wapo.st/1zWdT6u #thunder

Fun RT @ChuckGormleyCSN: Mike Johnston says Sidney Crosby will play vs Caps. #CapitalsTalk

Zac Boyer

Penguins coach Mike Johnston said Sidney Crosby will return tonight vs. Capitals.

Zac Boyer

At Capitals vs. Penguins. Barry Trotz said Braden Holtby is in goal again; lineup will change with Michael Latta in there somewhere.

Mike Prada

Here’s a Sixth Man of the Year name to consider: Tristan Thompson.

Jorge Castillo

Paul Pierce is going to play tonight. John Wall (ankle) is questionable but likely to play too. #Wizards

Ben Standig

Eastern Conference All-Star reserves announced tomorrow. I make predictions today ow.ly/I7lI9 #WizardsTalk http://t.co/hVpiZW8xXV

Zac Boyer

My guy @Todd_Dybas on the #Redskins' hiring of Matt Cavanaugh as their QBs coach: washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jan/…

Zac Boyer

With Cavanaugh's hiring, the Redskins now have two of the Bears' last three QB coaches on staff. Shane Day was their QBs coach in 2010-2011.

Zac Boyer

Cavanaugh spent the last two seasons as the Bears' QBs coach. He's been a QBs coach or an offensive coordinator in the NFL since 1994.

Zac Boyer

The #Redskins announced they have hired Matt Cavanaugh as their QBs coach. This was something they've wanted to do since, oh, November.

Andrew Sharp

Each one of those helped a ton as I was writing my thing. Also, I just realized the best comparison for Marshawn might be Manny Ramirez

Ben Standig

Redskins announce they've hired a former Patriots QB as their QB coach. Can't wait for someone to ask Matt Cavanaugh about ball pressure.
