The Wizards used a strong fourth-quarter push to rally for the victory Tuesday night and following today’s practice, Ed Tapscott talked about the importance of building on that.



One of the key elements in that fourth quarter was the play of Javaris Crittenton, who impacted the game both defensively and offensively, setting up his teammates for key shots. It’s obvious that he is becoming more comfortable the more he plays, but Crittenton said today that he still considers himself “the best-kept secret” and has a long way to go.


Antawn Jamison talked about the trade rumors and said he’s not worried about going anywhere, that he has a strong relationship with Abe Polin and knows the team is committed to him. The rumors don’t phase him in the least, he said. “I’ve been in this league 11 years, so I’ve heard it all.”
