James Singleton’s grin in the above image says it all. It was that kind of night for the Wizards, as the won 113 to 85.
It started out early when the Wizards jumped out to an early 8-0 lead, and from that point on, there was never a doubt that Washington would run the Bobcats off their own home court.
But let’s get straight to some happy Bullets Points:
- A lot of Wizards had good games, but the two players on 10-day contracts, Cartier Martin and James Singleton, led the way. Cartier Martin scored 19 points and poured in four 3-pointers, and James Singleton had a double-double with his 18 points and 12 rebounds. Singleton also had a plus-minus of +26 in his 38 minutes.
- Another player that had himself a ball game was Jan Vesely. He had his first career double-double with 11 points (5/11 FG) and 11 rebounds. It just seemed like Vesely was everywhere, all over the court. I also saw it as a good sign that he took two mid-range jump shots without hesitation. He missed them both, but they were both good looks at the basket, and he didn’t miss them terribly.
- John Wall only had 2 points, but he did hand out 12 assists. His minutes were cut down due to the Wizards’ large lead, but also because of Shelvin Mack’s steady play. Wall played 26 minutes, and Mack played 22 minutes. It was the first time Mack has played more than 20 minutes since March 16 in Atlanta. In his extended playing time, Mack scored 11 points (2/4 FG) and had 3 assists, and also played some excellent defense on Charlotte’s back-up point guard, Cory Higgins.
- No Wizards player had a negative plus-minus.
- Brian Cook only played four minutes, but still managed to attempt two 3-pointers. He missed them both.
- Jordan Crawford had a game-high 20 points, and a game-high two “And-1″ yells.
- Charlotte made three 3-pointers compared to the Wizards’ 11. Roger Mason led the way with five makes from beyond the arc.
- For the second straight game, Kevin Seraphin got into early foul trouble. Tonight he picked up his second foul with 5:59 remaining in the first quarter. I love Kevin Seraphin, but he has to stay out of foul trouble if he wants to be a starter long-term.
- The Bobcats are beyond terrible … It’s sad.
- The Wizards are now 3-0 against the Bobcats this season.
- Tonight’s box score
After picking up win number 13, the Wizards will play host the circus that is the Orlando Magic tomorrow night.
