A Scary Friday The 13th in New York


The worst.

Watching the Wizards lose 103 to 65 at Madison Square Garden to the Knicks was just that, the worst.

It was so bad that I really can’t figure out how to fully explain it in words, so I’ll spare you.

So with that, we’ll go straight to some Bullets Points:

  • The Wizards scored on 22 field goals. The Knicks had 22 assists.
  • John Wall had 7 turnovers, but that’s actually a good thing. Before looking at the box score I thought he turned it over at least 10 times.
  • Wall was just dreadful. He has absolutely no confidence right now, and that’s not just with his jump shot. And he has to stop getting caught up in the air while he’s looking to pass. It’s happening way too often.
  • Seriously, the Wizards put offensive basketball back 100 years. James Naismith is rolling over in his grave.
  • Jordan Crawford had a plus-minus of minus-32.
  • In the first half Jan Vesely hit the side of the backboard on a shot.
  • In 20 minutes James Singleton had 4 fouls, but he did have 9 rebounds.
  • The Wizards outscored the Knicks 14 to 12 on fast break points. So they had that going for them, which is nice.
  • There was a stretch In the second half where the Wizards went over 12 minutes without scoring a field goal.
  • Washington made four 3-pointers. The Knicks made 14.
  • Two Wizards starters did not score — Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton.
  • If you really want to you can look at the box score here.

There is good news though … the Wizards play again tomorrow night.

Well, okay, maybe that’s not good news, but at least it’ll make us forget about what happened tonight in New York if we haven’t already, and trust me, I’m trying.

See you tomorrow night on John Wall bobble-head night at the Verizon Center when the Cavaliers come to town.
