It's a good thing the Wizards beat Portland Wednesday night. After the way they played Friday it's hard to tell when their next victory will come as Washington was run out of the building by the Knicks in New York 108-87.
There really aren't a lot of positives to talk about after this one. Coming off their first win of the season you probably hoped to see a Wizards squad that continued to play strong defense and good team offense like they did Wednesday night. But maybe that was too much to ask.
Surprisingly Washington did manage to out rebound the Knicks 42-32. But maybe the Knicks realized they didn't have to rebound because the Wizards defense was so atrocious. They had no answer for Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, or really....well anybody in a Knicks jersey.
Anthony had 20 points and 5 assists and JR Smith dropped 20 off the bench. Raymond Felton played well and ended with a +14 rating. Even New York's 35 year old rookie, Pablo Prigioni looked impressive against this Wizard "defense."
Jan Vesely did see the floor tonight after not playing at all in the teams win against Portland. True it was in garbage time and Vesely finished with a -2 rating but at least he recorded no fouls.
The Wizards will play the Heat at home on Tuesday. Whats the over under on more Heat fans show than Wizard fans?
