Wish Rui would just turn into an alpha and attack the basket over and over like prime Melo.

They are fine. The defensive effort is there. Beal is gonna close this thing out

Wiz just set the franchise record with 47 assists. Holy sh-t.

Uh no, though they get about the same amount of assists. He's just not an alpha dog, but doesn't mean he can't be a very effective player and a two-way one unlike CA.

Rui really is a remarkable athlete. He is so fluid and seems almost ambidextrous. He has great balance going to either hand. That left-handed dunk in transition was beautiful.

Glad time is running out. Westbrook is definitely losing steam on D as is Beal.

We need to get Neto one point so everyone can get double figures.

If he can find some consistency next season, no reason why he can't put up 17 and 7. That three-point shot is getting better. He's around 33%.

Gafford fits perfectly with this group.

Good win Wiz. Even if the Pacers were shorthanded, we're just taking advantage.

So Indiana puts up 152 on OKC on Saturday and gives up 154 next game.

On to Milwaukee. Biggest test of this month.

Wait for it.....





Nobody has taken fewer shots than Russ. :lol:


Since then Westbrook took 4-5 more shots to finish with 8.

Aaron Holiday with the b**ch move, shooting an undefended jumper with 9 seconds left in the game after the Wizards relinquished the last possession with a 24 second shot clock violation.

Best all around offensive performance this year.

Got the feeling they didn’t care too much about defense because they couldn’t be stopped on the other end.

Ridiculous.

I lost count. Gafford forced like 6-7 misses in crunch time. Such a great player.
