This time, facing the Pistons on Monday night at Verizon in front of Michael Phelps and 5 other guys, the Wizards were up 5 at the half, led by as many as 13 in the second half, and lost to Detroit after Rodney Stuckey hit a Dagger with 0.2 seconds remaining to give his team the 79-77 victory.
John Wall ended up taking and missing the clutch game tying shot, which has happened in all 3 games the Wizards lost that were discussed before. Luckily the Wizards ended up getting one more shot after Ben Wallace missed 2 free throws and NeNe hit the post up hook-layup to tie the game. However Stuckey stuck it to the Wiz driving to the elbow and killing the Zards with the John Wall signature shot (except this one went in).
The Wizards were without Trevor Booker who was resting due to some knee issues and Serphin stepped in to do what Seraphin does, but his game didn't make up for the loss of Booker. Jordan Crawford was once again the only scorer on the team and John Wall continued his terrible shooting (6-17)
In the past 5 games John Wall is shooting under 30%, hitting only 15 of 51 shot attempts!
Steve Buckhantz continues to spend an insane amount of time on teaching us how to pronounce NeNe. It is almost to the point where it is as bad as when he did the same thing for Anderson Verejo.
The Wizards lost all 3 games of their back to back to back and their 4th straight. Next up are the Pacers on Thursday night in Indiana. The Pacers just beat Miami.
Buckhantz quote of the night: “So Crawford does what he likes to do best, and that’s shoot long jump shots”
