Wizards Update: The Perfect Storm
Posted By Frank Sullivan On Nov 28 2012 @ 1:18 pm In Washington Wizards | No Comments
What is there left to say about the Wizards twelve game losing streak?
Currently the Wizards record stands at an abysmal 0-12. They’re the worst offensive team in the league (90.0 ppg) and a middle-of-the-pack team defensively (giving up 98.2 ppg) For the second straight year the Wiz haven’t just failed to meet expectations, they’ve been the worst team to watch in basketball. How the Bobcats, a team built by Michael Jordan (GM Rich Cho deserves the bulk of the credit) has surpassed the Wiz in one short season is beyond me, but there’s no beating around the bush now, the Wizards are the worst team in basketball.
Even with starting C Nene back in the fold (back in the fold might be premature, his foot problems will plague him all season) this team can’t put enough points up on the board to win a game. And when they do score (they’ve held the lead in the fourth quarter or overtime in over half of their losses) they have been unable to hold leads and keep the pressure on their opponents. It’s like the perfect storm of losing in the NBA, let me break it down for you:
Tonight the Wizards will face Portland (6-8) at home. This is it guys…this looks like the last game until (gulp) MID DECEMBER that the Wiz have a chance of winning before Wall’s return. I want to see urgency out of these guys tonight, maybe some passion to not become the team with the worst start in NBA history (0-18 is the all-time worst).
In my last post I predicted they’d win two of their next five, now I’m just hoping they don’t go out there and embarrass the proud people of the Nations Capital anymore.
Coming Up: Portland tonight, @ NYK Friday, vs. Miami 12/4, @ ATL 12/7, vs. GSW 12/8, @ NOLA 12/11
