Washington Wizards

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.…

  6. PBT Roundtable: Who’s third best in the East?

    Nov 28, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question:  The Heat and the Pacers have been the clear class of the Eastern Conference so far, but who is the third best team there right now? Who will be at the end of the…

  7. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  8. John Wall: ‘I’m the best point guard in the league’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

  9. That is one relieved Jason Kidd after Nets win (VIDEO)

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Brooklyn did their best to choke away a win Tuesday. Toronto went on a 14-0 run in the final minutes to get it within two (after the Nets did not play the free throw game well), and they had a shot at tying it. (Go read our nightly NBA Grades to see what I thought…

  10. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  11. Tuesday night NBA Grades: John Wall has found his groove

    Nov 27, 2013, 2:37 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Washington Wizards

    Here’s a quick swing through the NBA for a Tuesday night, or you missed while seeing how far you could launch a pumpkin…  John Wall, Washington Wizards. No Bradley Beal so they need big games from him and they got it Tuesday in a win over a Lakers team that had been playing good defense…

  12. John Wall with the breakaway 360-dunk against Lakers (VIDEO)

    Nov 26, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    John Wall

    It isn’t enough that players in the middle of a game are capable of performing these types of acts; it’s important to recognize the presence of mind required to create this particular kind of highlight. John Wall improvised with this uncontested 360-dunk on Tuesday, in a play that was equal parts creative and athletic during…

  13. Dirk Nowitzki warned for flop vs. Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping. Nowitzki earned his in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ loss to Denver Monday night, when Darrell Arthur closed out and contested the jumper and Nowitzki fell like he was reenacting the Kennedy…

  14. 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.…

  15. 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…

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  17. 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…

  18. Marcin Gortat hulks up and rips towel in half (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    The frustrations in Washington are beginning to set in. Despite having one of the most talented starting lineups in the Eastern Conference, the Wizards have completely stumbled out of the gates this season. On Friday night against the Toronto Raptors, the Wizards battled back from a 16-point deficit behind John Wall, but faltered down the…

  19. John Wall with a playground behind-the-back layup (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is both far more fun and far more dangerous when you get him in the open court. You get plays like this one. There are a lot of things that Wall needs to do better, that the Wizards as a team need to do better, if they are going to be a playoff…

  20. The Extra Pass: Busting myths surrounding Blake Griffin, and Thursday’s recaps

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    In his first season playing in the league, Blake Griffin crushed any and all expectations. Now, just a few years later, he can’t seem to get out from under the weight of them. Without diving in too deep as to why that is, it’s probably fair to say that Griffin isn’t treated as even-handedly as…

  21. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  22. John Wall, Bradley Beal were quite the duo Tuesday (VIDEO)

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal had 25 points to lead all Wizards and played good defense on Kevin Martin all night. John Wall was more crucial yet — he tied his career high with 16 assists, including one to Martell Webster for the game winner, plus he had a key jumper down the stretch himself. Washington got the backcourt…

  23. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  24. Things you don’t see every day: Jan Vesely with steal, impressive dunk (VIDEO)

    Nov 19, 2013, 10:46 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards’ Jan Vesely actually played well Tuesday night —4-of-4 shooting plus six boards. And he had this quality play. The steal is okay, but that’s more on J.J. Barea for a bad pass (Barea got a lot of playing time as some poor play from Rubio had him in the fourth quarter) but the…

  25. 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…
