GT #42: Magic @ Bullets 7 PM (NBCSW/980 AM) 

Post#1 » by FAH1223 » Wed Jan 12, 2022 4:56 am

YOUR Washington Bullets are 21-20. 11-17 since that 10-3 start.

The season is halfway over. Your Bullets seem to be destined for 42 wins at current pace and will probably inevitably not get the 5th or 6th seeds cause... they're not able to beat teams they're supposed to beat... allegedly.

On Wednesday, they welcome the young Magic to town. Coming off a W over the Oklahoma Sonics, the Bullets played terrible interior defense and that was on heels of giving up 30 to Terrence Ross on Sunday in Orlando.

So who on Orlando goes off? Is it Franz Wagner? Is it Cole Anthony? Is it Ross again?

I'm not sure but I think its one of them!

In other news, Dinwiddie WILL play on 2nd night of a back to back. Beal is in COVID-19 protocols but his mouthpiece tweeted it was an inconclusive result so we'll see if he can test negative again.

Also, Thomas Bryant may make his season debut. Gafford getting in foul trouble will almost assuredly get TB on the floor.

I'd give Holiday significant minutes to guard Anthony. Cole's inconsistent, but if you defend him poorly, he's capable of having a big game. Holiday should match up well against him.

Was Holiday out last night? I was wondering why he didn't defend SGA.

SGA's much taller.

Great start shooting, with Kispert producing! Got to be better on the boards though…

Neto hitting shots (3/5) and got a steal. But someone has to tell him that he is a PG. it can not be that he is the Wizards with the most FG attempts so far..

I feel having a full roster will boost this team into relevance again.

Welcome back TB. You are going to need to defend to get a lot of minutes under WUJ.

Who knew Kuzma could pass like this? He's playing like a point power forward.

Dinwiddie's much more scorer than passer. He had 10 assists last night but that was fool's gold. Tonight he has zero assists, but he's scoring well.

We're lucky that Cole Anthony can't make a shot. Now Neto can't make a shot outside of five feet.

Damn, Neto's three ball has just disappeared this season.
