Blame Washington's intelligence failure, not lack of police
Topic - Kevin Seraphin
Wizards rookie Glen Rice is getting more playing time, but he's still shooting just 30% from three-point range in six games with the Iowa Energy.
The Wizards may have lost to the Heat in their last game, but they feel good about how they competed and had a chance to win late despite bad shooting and ball-handling.
The Wizards could have more size to deal with Al Jefferson if Kevin Seraphin's right knee holds up after Tuesday's session.
Drew Gooden is playing so well with the second unit that coach Randy Wittman will have some tough decisions to make when Kevin Seraphin returns.
This probably is the most significant meeting for John Wall and the Wizards, who have difficulty beating the Heat consistently, as do most teams, with LeBron James.
Forward Drew Gooden was signed to a second 10-day contract by the Washington Wizards.
Martell Webster has missed two games with a sore back but coach Randy Wittman seems confident that he'll be on the court Saturday.
Coach Randy Wittman had told his team to talk to each other to work out their issues in the flow of the game, but that didn't consistently happen until Andre Miller arrived and Al Harrington returned from injury.
The lead was down to two after Bradley Beal's 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds remaining, but time ran out not a moment too soon for Memphis, which made its free throws in the closing seconds to preserve a 110-104 win Monday night.
Martell Webster did get up shots Tuesday, but Kevin Seraphin wasn't able to go.
Tayshaun Prince was having his best scoring game of the season, and the Memphis Grizzlies were cruising in the fourth quarter, when a loose ball somehow ended up in the hands of little-used Washington Wizards rookie Otto Porter. Porter let it fly to beat the shot clock - and it went in for his first NBA 3-pointer.
The Wizards came out flat, and a crucial stretch to end the third quarter proved to be the difference as their winning streak ended at six with a 110-104 loss.
The Wizards will play more small lineups without backup center Kevin Seraphin, who has a right knee injury and is listed as day-to-day.
A victory for Washington would not just give it a season-high win streak, but it would mark a major step in getting past a team that has had its number all season.
Overcoming a blown lead in the third quarter and a game-winner that was waved off, the Wizards won in triple overtime against Toronto, 134-129, on Thursday night.
He told CSN Washington that he doesn't believe it is serious enough to require off-season surgery.
"We felt bad when he got hurt, but during the game, you have to keep focused the whole way, which we did," Seraphin said.
