Pretty interesting game. Arenas left with a hamstring injury( be careful what u wise for) drew gooden is balling he has 13pts
Wall and Jennings have about 6pts 4ast and some boards. Neither are going one on one both are using picks
It's clear Jennings has the quickest handles on the court and is quicker than wall but wall is only a half a step slower
End of the first quarter
I dont know if Jennings is quicker than Wall. He is a lot more shiftier (idk if thats a word but wutever). Wall is just so explosive in the open court and driving to the basket and jennings doesnt have his size so his shots in the lane are usually a high degree of difficulty.
Good to see Morrison get some pt and hit a few nice jumpers. He still runs like he pooped himself then stood in concrete before the game though
lol. he really does. And I agree on your statement also, well said.
Adam is on a mission. That's what the poopy-pants run symbolizes.
Look out, league.
Adam Morrison is becoming a fan favorite here in Washington. Whenever he touched the ball tonight, the fans would cheer and whenever he made a shot, the crowd would go nuts.
I still don't think he makes the roster though. There are two more spots left on the Wizards roster and Lester Hudson and Cartier Martin have both outplayed him so far this preseason, and he is to slow and unathletic and isn't a good fit for the Wizards running-offense.
Wow. Both of them are super fast. Great game.
I've been surprised by the play of Yi. He looks to be a solid player off the bench. I think his role in Washington is great. In New Jersey he was relied on for heavy starter minutes and was asked to play a tough role inside, but that's not his game. He's all about finese. I know he's been getting some starts at Center but I think once the regular season swings around Javale should be back to starting the 5. Yi is perfect coming off the bench for Blatche as he has a similar skill set and the offense can transition smoothly with him in there. Never realized how truly big he was and has pretty good footwork. He's not the toughest guy inside but he's a good enough rebounder and defender and has a knack for hitting the offensive glass. I think he can average a solid 12+7 as the main piece off the bench. I understand those are near his numbers last year with the Nets when he was getting heavy minutes as a starter, but I think when he's getting more limited minutes and in this run and gun system he will be much more efficient on the court in limited minutes. Serpahin is a work in progress so I guess Hilton Armstrong will be relied upon as the main backup for Javale. Wouldn't surprise me to see Armstrong make the team and have Serpahin on the inactive or D-league roster.
^^^ I agree ghettosermon. Yi has some skills and I like him out on the perimeter more than I do inside. I think he will prove to be a steal. He’s honestly surprised me more than any of their other players.
Hilton Armstrong has impressed me too.Last night, Armstrong managed to foul out in a little over twelve minutes of play, but during his time on the court he was extremely active and involved, doing a lot of the little things that get unnoticed in the boxscore.
What concerns me about the Wizards right now is that the bigs are playing small. Andray Blatche is falling in love with his jumper. He was 0-3 from 3 last night and here's what Flip Saunders had to say after the game.
"Dray’s the low post scorer. As a four, he’s about as good a low post scorer as there is if you look at fours around the league. We just got to get his big butt down there more often more often, and not having to keep popping out there all the time. Because that’s were he’s most effective, is down there on the block."
