Can't wait till Wall develops that jumper. A Beal/Wall backcourt will be unstoppable.

DC Sports finally on the up :rock:

He could have the best PER in the league and trading him was still the
smart move. We got WAY better as soon as he (and Nick) left. Not
necessarily with Ws right away, but just with a steadier, headier
style of basketball.

come on man. He was 3-6, reb, 2 assist, +11 in 17 minutes
Nothing that wrong with that.

And missed a key FT at the end and had a huge turnover that they somehow threw away. I don't care about the stats. He usually puts up good numbers. Just not clutch. Needs to be complimentary player not top option. He's a much better scorer than Temple, but I like that kid's defense and his passing.

Watched that same feed. Loved how the announcers mentioned how easily and casually Seraphin kept Faried off the boards, just holding him back with one big gentle paw.

I'm not arguing he's the 2nd coming. Yeah, he made a couple bad plays. So did some
other wizards. As for clutch, assuming you can define what that actually means, he
hit the go ahead 3. We never trailed after that. He played 17 minutes. As far as
being a complimentary player, that's exactly what he did tonight.

Wow though, that face/body plant by Beal looked scary. I was worried he cracked a rib or something. Hopefully he's OK. He was grimacing right till the end of the game.

Wall's midrange seems to be looking up too. I REALLY hope that keeps improving.

just noticed the wiretap feed with the Karl wants McGee to play
like Duncan. Well, I remember Glen Consor euphemistically saying
JaVale 'struggles with concepts'. So no, I don't think he's likely
to resemble The Big Fundamental any time soon. Nothing personal.

Yea, hopefully this isn't something that keeps him out, once he's had a night to sleep on it..

at home while we're flying to LA.

Klay Thompson is my new favorite NBA player.
"God is good," were his words after his record 37 point quarter.
His defense on James Harden was also impressive.
He also credits his father.#RESPECTFUL

Went to the game, was in a section with a few other random DC'ers, chanted R-G-3 at the end. That should be the victory cigar for all Wiz wins.

This is not a fluke.

At the start of the thread I predicted this win. Randy Wittman is a good coach. I love the way he gets multiple players involved.

Washington has a real good mix of veteran talent. They have low post scorers and low post defenders. Give Ernie Grunfeld credit. Washington has lengthy defenders on the wings. There are players who can make threes. Beal is the real deal and he's as good with Wall as any of us could have hoped.

Adversity revealed the true character of this team. Webster and Okafor, and others just kept playing. THIS COACH has been honest and he manned up following losses without throwing players under the bus. He has not given up on guys who are playing badly. Seraphin and Vesely are still in the mix. So is Singleton. Randy keeps the whole team engaged.

Nene's health is not as important as his showing up. I believe he's the inspirational leader of this team as is Bradley Beal. Crawford is a spark one way and the other. All these guys are taking the heat of the spotlight off John Wall. All Wall has to do is keep it moving as he's done. He's the backbone.

This is really good news.
