The Wizards kept on streaking tonight against the Bobcats. In beating the hapless Bobcats 101 to 73, the Wizards swept the season series 4-0 over the Bobcats and won their fourth straight game overall.
While there were positive signs and good performances all around by the Wizards, the biggest Wizards-related news came at halftime when Michael Lee of the Washington Posted tweeted that Ernie Grunfeld will be retained as team president.
So let’s get to those Bullets Points:
- First of all, the Bobcats are just a terrible excuse for a professional franchise.
- The star of the game was Jan Vesely. He scored a career-high 16 points, didn’t miss a shot on 8 field goal attempts, and offered up some highlight dunks.
- Tyrus Thomas of the Bobcats was ejected after being given a flagrant 2 foul for elbowing James Singleton in what looked to be an inadvertent play.
- To follow up his 13 assist performance against the Heat, John Wall handed out 14 assists tonight against the Bobcats. It marked the third straight game in which John Wall has had double-digit assists.
- Washington also got big contributions from Nene and Kevin Seraphin as usual. Once again, Nene didn’t start but did play 21 minutes. And you got to love Nene’s mid-range jumper. It seemed as if every time he shot one, it was destined to find the bottom of the net. Together Nene and Seraphin combined to shoot 14 of 22 from the field and score 34 points.
- Tonight was the third time in his last four games in which Jordan Crawford has failed to make more than two shots from the field. Tonight he shot only 1 for 8 and he didn’t make a shot from 3-point range on his five attempts.
- This is the first time the Wizards have won four straight games since December of 2007.
- Tonight’s box score
It was a dominating win by the Wizards, but for most it will be marred by the news of Ernie Grunfeld’s return. Let’s just hope Ernie being back isn’t the end of the world.
But back to the good news . . . The Wizards will look for their fifth straight win on Wednesday night in Cleveland.
See you all there.
