Question of the Day
Butler also had a double-double with 16 points and 19 rebounds.
Third-year player Andray Blatche had a good game off the bench, finishing with nine points and seven rebounds.
In a weird scheduling quirk, the Wizards play the Celtics again tomorrow in Boston.
“It was a good, all-around effort. It shows maturity,” Jamison said. “We had a good performance from everybody in this locker room. I am ready for Monday.”
Last night at Verizon Center
SEEN AND HEARD
Wizards coach Eddie Jordan continues to be intrigued by Andray Blatche. The forward had 13 points, eight rebounds and tied a career high with five blocks against the Hawks on Friday night, prompting Wizards forward Antawn Jamison to declare that the “best all-around game” of Blatche’s professional career.
Jordan said the key to getting the most out of the team’s youngest player is keeping him focused.
“He was very alert and he did things correctly; he played hard,” Jordan said. “That’s Andray’s hurdle, he’s got to learn how to play hard on every play, every night. He has to learn that you have to be alert every possession. When he doesn’t do that his skills don’t come to the floor.”
BY THE NUMBERS
13 Fourth-quarter points for Boston, which led by five through three quarters.
