"8 shots in 9 minutes. You know what that is? That's a Ben Gay ad after the game...he is in Pistol Pete mode"--Glen Consor on Jordan Crawford
The Washington Wizards lost yet another game on Wednesday night at Verizon Center, the first of a back-to-back-to-back. The Wizards had a brief 2nd half lead but the Pacers shot close to 60% from the field and they had control most of the game. The Wiz have now lost to the Pacers 3 times in the last 14 days.
As Consor said, Jordan Crawford was in shooting mode, pulling up from wherever he felt like. Randy Whitman may like JC's aggressiveness and with John Wall not having a jumper he is basically the only "scorer" on the team, but my God does he fire up shots. It is a streetball mentality and this is the NBA.
However, I must be taking crazy pills. Steve Buckhantz at one point in the contest compared Jordan Crawford to Earl the Pearl who at that moment rolled over in his grave despite still being alive. Then Phil Chanier chimed in saying that every team needed a guy like JC. Losing has taken its toll on the announcers.
"You know Jordan's jacking this up!"--Steve Buckhantz on Jordan Crawford
Kevin Seraphin had another good game. I've been copying and pasting that sentence every night. He had a career high 19 points and finished with 10 boards. Some of that was in scrub time, but I never imagined I would ever see a line that that from Big Kev. (JaVale McGee had 8 points and 4 rebounds last night)
Wiz head to Detroit who are on fire winning 4 out of 5. A winnable game...maybe...
Sidenote: Can we just tell Rashard Lewis to go home? Why is he still showing up in a suit on the bench?
