The pressure was on Kevin Seraphin. With 30 seconds left in the game and the Wizards down by one point, and Kevin Garnett draped all over him, Seraphin threw a wide cross-court pass that went out-of-bounds. After a start so dismal the home crowd began booing in the first quarter, the Wizards' second unit, led by Seraphin (19) and Jordan Crawford (21), managed to turn a potential rout into a competitive game in the second quarter, before eventually losing losing 89-86.
As it turns out, Nene and Brian Cook weren't the only bigs Washington acquired when it traded JaVale McGee, Nick Young and Ronny Turiaf. The Wizards also got the new-and-improved player who was buried on their bench. Wednesday's game against Indiana presented more evidence of the discovery, yet another exciting chapter in "The Evolution of Kevin Seraphin."
"I always said if they gave me my opportunity, I can play," Seraphin said.
"The most difficult thing was to play with confidence," Seraphin said Wednesday night. "When you don't have confidence to play, you're always looking at the bench and you're scared to make mistakes."
