While I think the Wizards are playing better with Wall back in the line-up and Beal gaining some confidence, I'm still not sold that they are a .500 type team. All year long the Wiz have been pretty competitive. They just haven't been able to close games due to poor shooting, turnovers, and choking at the free throw line. The Kings and Clippers games were more examples of that. I think the lack of a closer that can create his own shot, and the inconsistency of our younger players will continue to hamper this team. However, if the Wizards can rattle of some more wins in the next couple of games, I might be a little more optimistic. We shall see.
They have a lot of roles to work out. Players have to learn each other. Randy needs to work out the rotations.
Last game was good for one thing if not anything else.
Booker established himself as an enforcer and that was something I recently posted about. The team needed one. Lets see what he does next time someone takes Beal out.
I'm not talking about a dirty player, but you need some player or players on your team that will dish it back. If you do, opposing team will think twice. Kind of like what happens in baseball. You throw at our players. We are going to through at yours.
Mark Booker down as one of the tough guys. Do we have another ?
I think Wall will do it. I also think Ves will as well. But who we really need to do it is Kevin. Big boy needs to throw his weight around and put on that game face a little more.
