We should win this freaking game. But they key is that the wizards are a short team so use your height as an advantage. More Barnes less jack but I Garuntee it won't happen

LMAO- why are back to backs considered a disadvantage for us.... but somehow you assume that they will help our opponents?

also- we are a better team than the lakers. esp if kobe is sitting out.

MackShock
03-21-2013, 12:10 PM
lakers have proven they can win without kobe.

and my guess is most teams respond after a loss...idk how much but its a b2b so they wizards will bring it.

Wrong. Suppose you were a big fan of Monta Ellis, and that your team was going nowhere. They swing a trade for Dwyane Wade. You know it's the correct thing to do because you are getting a better player and becoming a better team, but you disagree with the fact that they traded Monta.

lakers have proven they can win without kobe.

and my guess is most teams respond after a loss...idk how much but its a b2b so they wizards will bring it.

perhaps kobe should just keep sitting out?

now im confused- should we be more concerned that the wizards beat the lakers in a close game in LA.... than if they were coming off a loss?

I mean the bottom line should be- the wizards dont play well on the road, they dont play well on the tail end of back to backs, they dont play well against the west.... they arent even that great in the east (which is an easy confrence).... and the warriors are a lot better of a team than they are.

But for some reason- im worried about this game. And whats even more strange. Im really worried about the lakers game on monday (could be a deciding game this season). BTW- whats up with the rockets having all these easy games lately haha

In case anybody is wondering, we have 11 games after the Wizards. 5 are against playoff teams. here is the schedule:

3/25 vs Lakers
3/27 vs Kings
3/30 vs Blazers
4/3 vs. Hornets
4/5 @ Suns
4/7 vs Jazz
4/9 vs Wolves
4/11 vs Thunder
4/12 @ Lakers Last and only back to back
4/15 vs Spurs
4/17 @ Blazers

bold indicates playoff team. I guess technically the Jazz arent but they are in the running. Also they back to back is BRUTAL.

I dunno, 35 games is somewhat substancial. (Its not like they had easy teams for that entire schedule- but 20-15 isnt THAT impressive in the east either) A healthy wizards team could be a playoff team in the east. a 35 game stretch might not be a full season, but it definitely isnt a 12 game sample size either.

likemystylez
03-23-2013, 05:45 PM
btw... that 35 game stretch is still in progress. They just beat a lakers team that needs wins in LA. The lakers definitely did not want to throw that home game away (given their home away schedule and their current record on the road.

Overall- its as good a schedule you ask for to close out the regular season in the western confrence. There are plenty of home games. If they beat the lakers on monday they could reasonably put a little 5-6 game winning streak together going into that brutal back to back. If they do well against this relatively easy stretch over the next few weeks.- Im hoping they gain a couple games of seperation from Houston. I'll have to look at their schedule though.

Also I had No idea John wall had such an attitude problem

so I was at the game last night. I actually had baseline seats and I was like 7 rows up from where the altercation took place between klay thompson and john wall. BTW- There was a play in the first half when the wizards were going that way, behind the play john wall started getting into it with draymond green. All green did was boxed him out. In walls defense- bogut laid him out on a few away from the ball picks. I dont know if it was a moving screen but bogut wasnt trying to make any friends out there. (Ironically- wall never said anything to bogut all night.)

ANyways- to the klay thompson situation. I was watching the whole thing really closely. It got to the point where wall made the refs blow the whistle. John wall actually stopped playing basketball and was getting in klay thompsons face. From where I could see- It looked like klay thompson was walking away and trying to avoid it. I dont know what klay thompson did to earn a technical foul? I watched the replay at home thismorning- I still have no idea what klay thompson did to get a technical. I think the warriors should have been at the free throw line.

When we were listening to the radio on the way home from the game last night, I heard rick Bucher go on and he seemed to be just as puzzled. He said he talked to klay thompson about it and thompson said he went out of his way to sayyy northing and infact thats what was pissing john wall off. Klay not responding to him or even aknowledging him. Im just wondering what the refs thought klay did to get a technical- or it was just a superstar call for wall. assuming klay must have said something to get wall that upset.

Thompson said something like " We are in the middle of a playoff race. These are all important games for us. I dont have time to focus on little arguments when im out there. Wall doesnt have to worry about that I guess".... LOL I think that said it all.

Curry said today he's going Monday against the lakers and his ankle isn't swollen he's alright

watching it from 25 feet away, it didnt look that bad and I watched the jumbotron. I didnt realize he went back to the locker room though. I thought he was gonna tighten his shoes and come back in. He didnt put all of his weight on the ankle when he tweaked it and when he rolled it he never completely planted it as it rolled (Kobe bryant planted it last week when he rolled it). Then again curry sat out 2/3 of the season last yr for an ankle injury that was nothing more than a bruise according to every doctor who looked at it.

03-24-2013, 04:44 PM
listening to the radio and watching the game when I got home... fitz acted like steph tore his acl or something. LOL it was the same way he acted when b rush went out. LOL I hope we understand that in the playoffs you arent going to be able to sit and milk every little ankle tweak or knee bump for a week. In the playoffs you definitely have to play through some bumps and bruises.

LOL- ahhh so that still doesnt sound like a technical on klay? Why would john wall get up in his face. Might as well wait until he gets the ball and do what your gonna do when he goes to the basket. repeatedly saying... "Im going to knock you out if you go to the basket.... is kind of pointless."

BTW- The next play after john wall was ejected... LOL I think klay went right to the basket... He got fouled by okafor.

LOL- ahhh so that still doesnt sound like a technical on klay? Why would john wall get up in his face. Might as well wait until he gets the ball and do what your gonna do when he goes to the basket. repeatedly saying... "Im going to knock you out if you go to the basket.... is kind of pointless."

BTW- The next play after john wall was ejected... LOL I think klay went right to the basket... He got fouled by okafor.

John Wall is kind of a ****.

John Wall's got a pretty big mouth for a dude on a ****** team going nowhere.

20-16 with wall, 5-28 without.

that may be true but it doesnt change the fact that his team is going nowhere (this season atleast)
