The countdown is on to the Wizards’ regular season opener versus New Jersey next Monday at Verizon Center.

The Wizards went 0-2 in the shortened pre-season.  After getting creamed 103-78 by the Sixers at Verizon Center last week, the Wizards rebounded with a much more spirited effort Tuesday night but lost at Philadelphia 101-94.

Everyone who had to play better– and that was pretty much the whole team — did, including guard John Wall who scored 17 points, and JaVale McGee who had 20 points and 9 rebounds — and the 7-foot center even made a sweet skyhook.

Jordan Crawford, who got the start again at shooting guard, got 21 shots up but only made 6, finishing with 18 points.

Recently signed Nick Young, who likely will replace Crawford in the starting lineup, got a few minutes and put some shots up (3-10), scoring 8 points.

All in all, it was a performance the Wizards needed with just five days before the season opener against New Jersey. Another blowout loss and this team’s confidence surely would have been shaken. But with this effort under their belts, there is certainly something to build on.
