So beal can't have a cool cat look on the sidelines or take in the moment at the exact time J-Craw made the winning shot? He certainly ran right into the midst of celebration with the rest of his teammates in the immediate aftermath. I just dont see the internal strife or personal animosity some of you guys are trying to see from a single snapshot.

Wall was in a funk but it's almost like his teammates put him into
it with the failure to catch passes when John first came in the game.
May have gotten in his head.

Without the steal/dunk, Craw's shot is a bit more pressure packed.

We've been relying on the backcourt recently and the front court was on tonight and bailed us out, along with Crawford. I think Wall got stuck trying to pick up the pace when the game didnt necessarily call for it....although I hated the first lineup they put out there with him....(Booker and Seraphin shouldn't happen)...


Exactly. His pace was terrible. And even after he finally made up for it with that steal and dunk, he came back with a behind the back something crap move.

He was the anti CP3 all night.

And Randy stilling with Kevin when he was getting used like a doormat under the basket was stupid. Should have put Ves in. The game was right down his alley. He would have passes it around.

Randy stuck with crap the entire 2nd and even into the forth. Wall needed to get benched for how he was playing. Price was playing excellent. Lillard was iced the whole game until the 4th will Wall in covering him. Then he blow by Wall and dunked on him. It just hurt watching Wall out there tonight.

We should have won by 10 plus.

Agree...this could actually be a meaningful strong finish to the season.


First 32 games: 4-28
Last 7 games: 5-2
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

We're no longer the worst team in the league! Should we sell high on our pick?

True but Lillard scored at will before the steal. John shot an ill-advised air ball. He would have still been the goat if not for Crawford and Nene at the end.

Wall owe Crawford a nice dinner. He took the spotlight off of him. You are right. Had they lost, Wall crap play would have gotten more coverage. As it is. Not many will notice.

Nor do I want that cry baby. He is a loser.
I would rather he suck the money and life out of some other team.

Give me a player like Gortat. Meat and Potatoes. You can have the queen drama players.

Portland is going to be awesome when they add some depth.

Howard may not resign with LA. Why would they not trade him and rebuild. Washington wants to trade their lotto pick

Wall was horrendous. But with the way he's been playing since he's come back, I'm fine with a dud here and there. Can't believe the team pulled out a win with both Wall and Beal stinking it up.

Speaks to the newfound confidence and character of the team I think.

The Wizards medical staff and Howard's max contract, a match made in heaven.
..let's keep in mind that while the Wizards were trading for Okafor and Ariza, giving away a draft pick and cap room, bypassing the free agent market and rejecting a trade for Harden, Leonsis was publicly congratulating himself for being smart. - Nivek

Beal worry about his starting spot?

absolutely not. Its a non issue. The rook is allowed a bad night or two. Wes Matthews is one of the better defenders on the wing that the NBA has to offer. Beal could just never get in a rhythm. Teams are definitely going to pay more attention to him so other players will need to come up big.
