The Pistons rolled over Washington tonight 100-68. The scoreboard pretty much tells the whole story in this one.
There isn't much positive to say as the Wizards move to 3-21 on the season. In most of those 21 loses the Wizards have at least been competitive. That didn't happen tonight; Detroit had no trouble dominating the game from start to finish.
At one point in the second quarter the Wizards trailed 40-18.
(At that moment you probably changed the channel. I know I wanted to)
Jordan Crawford lead the team with an ugly 20 points playing back in his hometown. The team offense in general was just putrid tonight which is especially disappointing after the past few games it looked like the team was at least making steps in the right direction.
On the defensive end, Randy Wittman's club made Kyle Singler look like a star, he had ten points and five boards. Greg Monroe routinely embarrassed Kevin Seraphin and Emeka Okafor on his way to 15 points and nine rebounds.
Rookie Bradley Beal didn't play for the second straight game with a sore back. Nene also didn't play tonight, he had the flu, limiting the Wizards to nine players. Which means....
Jan Vesely was forced into action seeing 26 minutes of playing time. Vesely had six points and two steals which for him is an improvement. How bad of a season can you be having when you score six points off the bench and it's actually one of the highlights of your season?
Oh well at least the Wizards didn't waste a number six overall pick on him or some...errr wait a sec.
