Thank God that game is over. For those of you that watched, well. . . you understand. Tonight’s game vs. the Clippers was never competitive and the fact that the Wizards only lost by 26 doesn’t do the Clippers’ domination — and Wizards’ ineptitude — enough justice.
To avoid torturing and depressing you all we’ll go with a bullet point recap:
- You think the Wizards’ half-court offense was terrible before? Tonight it found a new low.
- As frustrating as Nick Young can be, there’s really no consistent threat of scoring in a half-court set when he’s on the bench.
- Chris Paul had only 2 points on 1/9 shooting… and the Wizards still got embarrassed.
- Blake Griffin was dying to put JaVale McGee on a poster, but he wasn’t able to. However, he did have seven dunks on the night.
- Kevin Seraphin once again looked lost and confused most of the time even though he had a nice stat line of 8 points and 8 rebounds.
- Rashard Lewis is utterly useless. That’s just one example.
- One of the Clippers’ scoring threats, DeAndre Jordan, had 18 points, except for the fact that he’s never a scoring threat.
- Brian Cook got playing time for the Clippers. If I had told you that before even watching the game you could’ve figured out how the game went.
- Trevor Booker got the start at power forward over Jan Vesely, but got into early foul trouble against Blake Griffin.
- For the third straight game, Hamady Ndiaye got one minute of playing time for the Wizards. It’s becoming a common occurrence.
- Chris Singleton scored his first points since the Rockets game on January 27th. He had 9 points tonight.
- Roger Mason had a +/- of +6. So, once again, at least he had that going for him.
- Going forward, Jan Vesely is going to have to provide something other that pick-and-roll defense. He got exposed as a starter and tonight off the bench he offered little — not unlike everyone else.
- John Wall had a few highlight plays. He had a confident jump shot, nice crossover and floater, and a tough finish at the rim.
