A Good Weekend of Basketball at Verizon Center

Posted on January 28, 2013 by Ted Leonsis

The Wizards won back to back games on Friday night and Saturday night, and the Georgetown men's basketball team beat Louisville in a matinee on Saturday afternoon.

More than 52,000 people enjoyed strong, entertaining and winning basketball in a 24 hour period in downtown DC this weekend.

The Wizards are on a nice streak - we are 7 and 3 in our last 10 games.

We have won five home games in a row. Our players are confident and we are relatively healthy, although Wall and Nene are still playing on limited and monitored minutes. Read the players quotes here for a measure of their thoughts and the character of the team. Read the writers quotes here - calling the team's  run "perplexing and cute". First time I have seen that string of words together to describe a winning streak.

We play again on Monday night at home - thanks for making Saturday night's game a sellout.

We took a tiny step forward last night. We played hard and overcame a 2 to 0 deficit to tie the game late in the third period.
