Some perspective: at 11-7 (.611), the Wizards are still currently on pace to win 50 games. Hitting some speed bumps at the moment. – 12:45 AM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
With Zion out, Willie Green has kept shuffling the deck to find the right starting five. In Wednesday’s win over the Wizards, he might’ve found one he can rely on for a while.

Willy Hernangomez (16.0 ppg, 9.0 rpg last 2 games) with @ESPNRadioNOLA on his impact after many DNPs: “I’ve got to say thank you to all my teammates, to keep trusting in me every single day, even if I’m not playing. I’m working every day to try to stay ready and help the team.” – 12:12 AM

Jonas Valanciunas joking about Willy Hernangomez overtaking him as the #NBA three-point % leader (he’s a perfect 1 for 1): “Willy is the best one right now, he’s shooting 100 percent. I’m out of there. I missed three tonight. No question, Willy’s the best three-point shooter.” pic.twitter.com/GwfjjmTuh912:01 AM

Josh Hart on his buzzer-beating, halfcourt, four-point play at end of 3Q: “I got to where (on the floor) I was somewhat comfortable shooting it with that range – I ain’t Steph Curry or Trae Young – and it felt solid. It went in, that’s all that matters.” pic.twitter.com/mu991hTzs211:53 PM

Ingram on @Willy Hernangomez‘s 3-pointer:
“I was scared for him. I knew after that shot, either he was going to make it and everybody was going to clap or if he missed he was going to come out the game. I was scared for him but in the end I was happy for him.”

PJ Washington will be a game time decision. James Borrego said he’s not sure yet if Washington will play. He will go through pregame workouts and see where he’s at.
“He got a workout in yesterday,” Borrego said. “I liked his workout. He looked much more comfortable yesterday.” – 5:48 PM

Wizards center Thomas Bryant made an appearance on the newest season of “Selling Sunset” which debuted today on Netflix.
Bryant sold his 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 5,800 sqft home and put an offer in on a smaller home with a better view and an easier commute.
