Links: Washington Wizards Finally Win their First game Agianst the Sixers

Wizards fans could finally breathe a sigh of relief after watching the team pick up their first victory of the season against the  Philadelphia 76ers. Here are the Wizardly Links, most of which pertain to the ‘W':

-Wizards-Sixers game recap: (via Wiz of Awes)

Last night’s match up was very similar to the Wizards’ home opener, except this time Washington was able to close out the game. Virtually everyone who played made some sort of impact and led by John Wall and Marcin Gortat, the Wizards were able to pick up their first win of the season.

-John Wall knocked down 5 three point shots last night, but when should he shoot them?: (via Bullets Forever)

Has Wall suddenly morphed into a sharp-shooter from deep? Probably not. But should he continue to take the three-point shot when he a) hasn’t really mastered the mid-range shot yet, and b) is further away from the basket because of it?

-The Wizards haven’t been great this season, but don’t panic: (via WizardsXTRA)

Last year the Wiz started horribly. They dropped their first twelve games. They are just three games in so far this season with a whole lot of basketball left to be played this season. There is no need to panic.  The Wizards must do what they do well.  Getting stops on defense and pushing the ball in the open court is their bread and butter.   The Wizards outscored the 76ers in fast break points 34 – 20, but where crushed in the paint 74-54. 

-Wizards radio broadcasters, Dave Johnson & Glenn Consor, also recapped the victory: (via DailyWizdom)

“Just win”, that’s what Martell Webster said to us before last night’s game and the Wizards did. With a franchise 18 three-pointers the Wizards defeated the 76ers in Philadelphia 116-102. John Wall led the Wizards with 24 points and he collected a career-high five three-pointers.

-Who was last night’s MVP and X-Factor?: (via HoopDistrict)

Early on I thought I would be going with Marcin Gortat for game MVP due to his quick start, but Wall’s career high 5-three pointers and oozing confidence
