Now that Villanova lost and I didn't have Arkansas advancing past this round anyway, the entire right side of my bracket is now dead so I may as well watch this game.

Hmm. Maybe it's better to go back to Oral.

Plumlee's shooting form is so horrible looking. Whoever taught him to shoot with that hitch should not be working anywhere near a basketball capacity

Why couldn't Ellington maintain his hot shooting streak for one more week? He would've been traded for an asset no matter how small by now

Is Drew Gooden serious? He’s talking like the Wizards aren’t only 2.5 games up on the pistons with a higher +-

I think weaver must have been unrealistic on his return. I can’t imagine that Utah wouldn’t have offered the 2nd they gave Toronto for Thomas to us for Ellington.

With Grant falling down to earth and Wright out of town I think we can catch anyone. Killian the secret tank weapon is going to be back in April I believe.

Stewart is everything we need out of the center position

Hey, at least now if he sucks and starts games we can listen to more complaining that Casey isn't really tanking but is trying to win games, and is too stupid to figure out that starting a bad shooting guard doesn't win games.

I legit think Washington's players are throwing the game at this point. Yeah you see it from GMs and coaches, but you'll never see players intentionally doing dumb sh... to lose.

Good to see the young ones blow off some steam in the third. That was rough losing last night and then to come out lifeless again the Wizards. If Stew had finished some passes at the hoop, they could have taken the lead. Without Grant.

Wayne, good defense, and pushing this insane tempo is what brought us back from the shadow realm of being down 30 points

Washington also dialed up the tank by giving Westbrook all those terrible shots and ISOs

Never underestimate Scotty Brook's coaching or lack there of. He has terrible rotations and never calls the right timeouts

That and he lets Russ chuck up bad shots with plenty of clock. This is just a marvelous tank and ineptitude job on full display

The stats don’t fully paint the picture of how washed Westbrook is.

Watching this game does.
