Monday night is a bucket lister for radio funnyman and sports nerd Danny Rouhier.
The unexpectedly biggest Super Bowl blowout in 21 years was a fitting exclamation point to the weirdest weekend in Washington sports in quite a while.
The first half ended with a case of the Marquee Miscues. Kevin Durant lost the ball to John Wall, and Wall then missed an open fast-break layup at the horn. It was Durant’s fourth turnover and Wall’s seventh miss in a row.
As the Wizards prepare to welcome red-hot Kevin Durant back home again, it’s an appropriate time to consider the 25-year-old Seat Pleasant native’s place in the area’s hoops pantheon.
Washington coach Randy Wittman wanted his players fouling DeAndre Jordan, whose free-throw shooting has always been the weakest part of his game.
New video system tracks every player’s moves.
Enes Kanter made 11 of 13 shots and the Jazz overcame a 13-point deficit to take control in the fourth quarter and keep the Wizards from moving above the .500 mark for the first time in more than four years.
While the Wizards failed again to top .500 this season, they’re still a respectable 41-44 during President Obama’s second term. They were 88-222 during Obama’s first four years.
Gerald Wallace made a driving layup with 2.5 seconds remaining in overtime and the undermanned Boston Celtics broke a 10-game road losing streak Wednesday night with a 113-111 win over the Washington Wizards, who wilted yet again in their long and laborious quest to get above .500.
The first three times the Washington Wizards reached .500, they lost their next game.
