    And the first Eastern Conference team comes in at …

  2. Wizards reportedly to sign Drew Gooden

    Feb 25, 2014, 12:58 PM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Since acquiring Nene two years ago, the Washington Wizards have gone 60-61 when he plays and 8-34 when he doesn’t. In their scheme, he’s a steadying force on both ends of the floor, practically essential to their success. Needless to say, with Nene out four to six weeks, the Wizards will almost assuredly use their…

  3. All-Star smack talk: James Harden shows off Eurostep game winner to John Wall firsthand

    Feb 15, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Practices 2014

    NEW ORLEANS — The above play happened on Wednesday night — the Rockets were down one to the Wizards with four seconds left when James Harden lost his man John Wall on a Dwight Howard (moving) screen, got the ball out top, drove the lane, Eurostepped around the defender and scored the winning bucket. That play…

  4. Rockets’ James Harden drives for game-winning lay-up over Wizards (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2014, 11:16 PM EDT

    WASHINGTON WIZARDS VS. HOUSTON ROCKETS

    It was an unsual ending in Houston. The Rockets had the ball down two to the Wizards with :04 seconds left and, as you would expect, Houston wanted to get the ball to James Harden coming out high off a Dwight Howard screen — except Trevor Ariza hooked Harden’s arm, knocking him to the ground…

  5. Report: Sixers shopping Evan Turner around, not any takers yet

    Feb 3, 2014, 7:07 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Sacramento Kings

    Right now we are in the “there’s a lot of talking” phase of the trade season — the trade deadline is Feb. 20 and GMs around the league are trying to gauge the value of their players and see what other teams are asking for theirs. Names such as Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis in…

  6. Report: Bulls discussed Taj Gibson trade with Lakers, Wizards and Bobcats

    Jan 31, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

  7. John Wall’s first move after finding out he’s an All-Star? Calling his mom.

    Jan 31, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Los Angeles Clippers

    John Wall is an All-Star. He deserved to be selected as a reserve. He’s been healthy all season (which is a change) and with that has been one of the best point guards in the East averaging 19.8 points and 8.5 assists a game, and while he could be more efficient (true shooting percentage of…

  8. Report: Washington Wizards want Greg Monroe

    Jan 20, 2014, 7:34 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Marcin Gortat, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Josh Smith

    The Detroit Pistons have one month to determine whether they’re willing to give Greg Monroe a max contract. There’s no guarantee Monroe will get that large of an offer as a restricted free agent this summer, but the possibility is high enough that if the Pistons aren’t willing to pay him max money, they nearly…

  9. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  11. Otto Porter active, could make Wizards debut Friday night

    Dec 6, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    Otto Porter, the No. 3 pick of the Washington Wizards and the guy seen as their small forward of the future, could make his NBA debut Friday night. Porter, who strained his hip flexor in September and missed all of training camp and the start of the season, is active for the Wizards Friday night…

  12. Marcin Gortat jokes Otto Porter so small he “might get destroyed”

    Dec 5, 2013, 9:53 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Otto Porter could make his Washington Wizards debut this weekend. He has been out since before training camp with a hip flexor injury, but the No. 3 pick overall could get some NBA action soon. And teammate Marcin Gortat is worried about him. Jokingly. But Porter’s slight frame (6’9, 198 pounds) became a joke, as…

  13. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  14. Otto Porter close to making Wizards debut, Thursday practice key

    Dec 4, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    The Washington Wizards have gone 7-3 in their last 10 and have moved into the No. 3 seed in the East (at 9-9, but still the three seed) all without having the No. 3 pick in the last draft Otto Porter, who was supposed to be the starting three on this team. But they could…

  15. Trevor Ariza gets hot, Orlando pays the price (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v San Antonio Spurs

    Trevor Ariza was on fire Monday night. He was on fire from the corner — 4-of-4 on corner threes on Monday night. Heck he was hot from everywhere — 24 points on 8-of-9 shooting. With Bradley Beal out the Wizards need shooting to space the floor out for Nene inside, to create lanes for John…

  16. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  17. Monday night NBA Grades: Tim Duncan does not age

    Dec 3, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v San Antonio Spurs

    We know you missed some NBA action Monday night between watching the Seahawks win and catching Ron Burgundy anchor an actual newscast. So to help you out, here are our NBA grades for Monday. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs. Slump? What slump? With his 23 points and 21 rebounds Duncan became the oldest player in…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Heat and a lot from out West at the top

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

  19. Bradley Beal has “stress reaction” in leg, will miss at least two weeks

    Nov 26, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    We told you we were waiting on the results of an MRI, and the verdict is in: The pain in Bradley Beal’s leg is a “stress reaction” — a nice way of saying a stress fracture — and he is going to rest for two weeks and then be re-evaluated, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com.…

  20. Bradley Beal has leg soreness, to get MRI. Could miss time.

    Nov 26, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    bradley beal

    Wizards coach Randy Wittman was leaning heavily on second year shooting guard Bradley Beal — 40.2 minutes per game. That’s a higher per-game average than anyone else in the league. We say “was” because he could be out for a little while. J. Michael has the details over at CSNWashington.com. The Wizards confirmed late Monday…

  21. Otto Porter finally joins Wizards’ practice

    Nov 25, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    On paper Otto Porter seemed a perfect fit and a smart pick for the Washington Wizards at the small forward spot last June in the NBA Draft — however we have never really seen if that is the case. Porter struggled some at Summer League but his style of play is a poor fit for…

  22. Wizards’ Trevor Ariza will not miss much time due to hamstring injury

    Nov 19, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Trevor Ariza

    It could have been a lot worse. Trevor Ariza injured his hamstring last week in a game against the Spurs and there were concerns around the Wizards that the veteran forward could be out for a while. But the news came back from the doctors and it is good — it’s not structural nor serious…

  23. Al Harrington latest addition to Wizards’ injury list

    Nov 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

    al harrington wizards

    Over the past couple of seasons, injuries have defined the Wizards more than anything else. The talent level hasn’t exactly been amazing, but the team had enough at most positions to at least field a competitive squad if everyone was healthy. It’s shaping up to be the same story this season. Washington has already been…

  24. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…
