Wizards' comeback falls short against Heat, 91-88

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 21:53:16 -0500

After taking the first game of a home-and-home series with the Heat on Wednesday, the Wizards rallied from down 25 points on Friday, but could not complete the comeback after Bradley Beal's jump shot fell short with 2.6 seconds to go. Beal scored a game-high 26 points and anchored the Wizards' comeback in the 91-88 loss. Hassan Whiteside's 22 points and 16 rebounds and James Johnson's 20 points off the bench paced the Heat to victory.

Wizards and Heat, Part II

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 10:57:19 -0500

After beating the Heat, 102-93, in Miami on Wednesday, the Wizards return to D.C. and will look to sweep this home-and-home series and pick up their fifth straight victory tonight at Capital One Arena. Wednesday's win ended a five-game losing streak against the Heat and was an impressive road win for a Wizards team that was swept in the four-game season series a year ago.

A home-and-home set with the Heat

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 13:41:31 -0500

The Wizards head to Miami for the road portion of their home-and-home series with the Heat. The Heat were the only Eastern Conference team to sweep the Wizards last season, winning all four games in the season series. Washington has now lost five straight to Miami, with their last road win coming in December of 2015. They played the Heat tough last year, but for whatever reason they were the one team they just couldn't find a way to get a victory. They'll have two chances to end this streak this week, as tonight is just the first game of a home-and-home set, with the Wiz hosting Miami on Friday in DC.

Wizards close out homestand with 110-92 win over Kings

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 13:33:24 -0500

The Wizards closed out a four-game homestand with an 110-92 win over the Kings on Monday night. Six Wizards scored in double figures and Washington held the Kings to 40.5% shooting on the night. Sacramento started the game hot, taking the first quarter 32-25. George Hill led the Kings with 13 points in the opening quarter, while John Wall had 10 points. The rest of the Wizards' starters struggled from the field and could not contain the Kings' hot start. That would soon change.

Wizards ready for pivotal week ahead

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 13:32:53 -0500

Monday marks the beginning of a key stretch for the Wizards as they hope to finish November strong. With five of six on the road to conclude the month, the Wizards will host two of four games this week. Along with leading the East in scoring at 111.5 points per game, the Wizards have started to find their groove defensively. In the team’s last seven quarters, opponents have shot 51-142 (35.9%) from the field, turned the ball over 39 times for 58 points off turnovers, and Washington is giving up only 22 points per quarter. Offensively, Bradley Beal, John Wall, and Otto Porter Jr. are combining to average 61.8 points per game right now, while three other players - Kelly Oubre Jr., Markieff Morris, and Marcin Gortat - are averaging double figures.

As part of the NBA's Hoops for Troops Week, last Friday the Wizards hosted 40 local veterans and active military personnel from both the Wounded Warriors Project and members of the Amputee Clinic Leadership Program, along with their family members at their annual Wizards Care, Salute to the Stars Luncheon. The group spent the morning teaming up with the Red Cross and Wizards players and staff to make hundreds of comfort kits for victims of the recent hurricanes. John Wall, Tim Frazier, Scott Brooks, and Ernie Grunfeld spent time with military personnel to help make the packages, while also taking pictures and signing autographs for the servicemen and servicewomen and their families.
