Topic - Otto Porter
Randy Wittman said a big part of the Wizards win over the Magic Friday night was strong play from Otto Porter.
Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster needed rest, so Otto Porter set a season-high for rebounds, minutes played, shots attempted and matched his season-high in points.
Otto Porter picked a great time to have his best game as a pro. The rookie came off the bench to score nine points and grab nine boards in the Wizards win over Orlando.
Otto Porter set a career-high with nine points in mop-up duty vs. Boston, and coach Randy Wittman would like to find a way to get him on the floor more.
Martell Webster has missed two games with a sore back but coach Randy Wittman will have a better idea of his availability after Friday's practice.
Martell Webster has missed two games with a sore back but coach Randy Wittman seems confident that he'll be on the court Saturday.
Martell Webster is being called a game-time decision vs. the Jazz because he has a sore back, which means rookie Otto Porter likely will have a chance to build on what he did Monday.
Last season, Georgetown's Otto Porter and Michigan's Trey Burke were up for many college Player of the Year awards. The Wizard and Jazz rookie now battle on the court in the NBA.
The Otto Porter-Tayshaun Prince comparisons have existed for some time. The veteran NBA forward understands them in more ways than one.
Otto Porter played his best game in quite some time, scoring all six points in the fourth quarter of a comeback that came up short vs. Memphis.
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.
The Wizards are hopeful that Martell Webster won't be out long after someone fell on his back in a game in Philadelphia over the weekend.
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.
It hasn't been the rookie season the Wizards planned on when they took Otto Porter No. 3 overall, but against the Grizzlies, Porter hit his first NBA three pointer.
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.
"Guys need rest. Martell, Trevor need rest. It gives opportunities for me to step in," Porter said.
"Simple things like always crashing the boards. My guys, they're not paying attention to me," he said. "I try to take advantage of things like that. Going in, tapping rebounds back out to John (Wall) or whoever or tapping them in. Just trying to be active around the ball all the times."
