In their final game of a six game road trip with new Wizard Nene on the floor, the Washington Wizards defeated the New Jersey Nets 108-89 in Jersey on Wednesday night. Nene started his career as a Washington Wizards by scoring the first bucket of the game in the opening seconds of the game and he didn't stop there. Nene finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds and most importantly did not look anything like JaVale McGee.
The Nets played pretty terrible were led by Deron Williams' 17 points. The Wizards had the lead at the half yet again, but with the Wizards starting to pull away the lead in the 3rd quarter Deron Williams and Avery Johnson both got ejected. After the ejections the Nets energy disappeared and the Wizards took over.
Along with stellar play by Nene, the other big man Kevin Seraphin continues to impress. He scored 12 points on 6 for 7 shooting and is getting better and better with each game. Jordan Crawford led the team with 23 points but the story was the man that Steve Buckhantz calls Neh-Neh.
On the negative side, Shelvin Mack had an absolutely terrible game. Turnovers, not coming to the ball, not getting the ball across from half court, bad defense, etc. Janet the Volleyball player slash hacker is just a complete joke of a 6th pick. All he does is run around swinging his arms. And whoever the D-League 10 day contract guy is, he is also bad. I refuse to learn his name because it will push out some important fact out of my brain.
Buckhantz quote of the game, about a Jordan Crawford jumper “Jacks one up…and hits it” Buckhantz is so sick of Crawford shooting terrible shots. Best announcer ever.
The Wizards scored 100 points with 4:46 left in the game which is a good sign. However it was against the Nets, and a Nets team without Deron Williams for half of the game. All you can do is be thankful that the cancerous guys are gone and hope the guys continue to play hard.
