Wizards vs Nuggets Tonight at 700pm - Game OnPosted on December 09, 2013 by Ted Leonsis
We play Denver tonight at home.
Many NBA teams are dealing with being short handed. We have to over come adversity on an ongoing basis. We seem to suffer injuries in waves with last Friday being a one step forward - two step back event. Otto Porter comes into the line up after not playing for about 3 months time and Martell Webster and Nene were removed from the game.We lost in OT - that is the third OT loss for us this young season. Learning to close out these games in regulation or how to win in OT is a next step in our development. We actually didn't even score a basket in OT on Friday night. It is hard to win games in OT when you don't score from the field.
So far this season, Beal, Nene, Ariza, Harrington, Webster, Porter, Seraphin, and Singleton have missed time and games. More than half the team.
As noted, we must find ways to win at home and to play short handed, and be productive. That has to be our mantra as a franchise and deal well with the cards that are handed to us as a team.Posted in: Sports
