    Recent meetings
    December 25, 2014 On a beautiful Christmas afternoon, Washington visited Madison Square Garden for a matchup with the New York Knicks as they cruised to an easy 102-91 wire-to-wire victory over the home team on December 25, 2014. Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 34 points on 13-26 shooting over 43 minutes. Jose Calderon added 16 points and a team high four assists over 36 minutes. John Wall paced the Wizards with 24 points, 11 assists and six rebounds over 36 minutes. Bradley Beal added 17 points and five assists.
    November 4, 2014 New York took the early lead as they outscored Washington 45-40 in the first half only to see the Wizards storm back in the third quarter to outdo the Knicks 32-15 en route to a 98-83 victory at Madison Square Garden. Iman Shumpert sparked the Knicks with a season high 19 points on 6-11 shooting including 4-4 from downtown over 31 minutes. This was the most points Shumpert has scored since Jan. 22, 2014 @ PHL. Carmelo Anthony added 18 points and six rebounds over 37 minutes. Washington was led by Garrett Temple’s 17 points and five rebounds over 30 minutes. Familiar face, Paul Pierce, posted 17 points, five rebounds and three assists over 27 minutes for the Wizards.

    Thanks for another great game thread. Every now and again we'll probably accidentally win a game, but no reason to ever expect one at this point. Getting ready for this game and laughing to myself that apparently the Cavs plan to turn things around is to acquire as many former Knicks as possible now that they add Mozgov to JR Smith and Shump.

    We hung around with our makeshift roster through most of the 1st quarter until Wall made his presence felt and we finish the quarter down by 9. Early doing his best on Wall, but that is one hell of a challenge for him. Galloway gets exactly 10 seconds to end the 1st quarter to start his NBA career.

    Fisher starts the 2nd quarter with Aldrich, Early, Acy, Larkin, and Galloway. Galloway picks off a pass and goes coast to coast to draw the foul on the other end, almost gets an and 1.

    Sideline report details how Calderon has told Galloway he will help him any way he can during and between games. Calderon may not be earning his contract on the court, but he can be a valuable bench/locker room asset to our young guys.

    Fisher should give Galloway the green-light his first game

    And Galloway drains the nice sideline jumper out of the timeout.

    Aldrich plays some decent defense, can get double digit rebounds every night, has a baby hook shot that is a work in progress, and makes several nice passes a night. If we strike out in free agency for a star big man, it is going to be a real tragedy if we lose out on him in the offseason too.

    Fisher choosing to play Calderon and Prigs together, subbing them in at the same time. Aldrich logging crazy minutes. He's the one guy who doesn't seem to ever come out of the game.

    THJ continues to play a version of basketball that looks like JR Smith without the occasional ability to make a nice pass. I understand he is out there with no one special, but THJ is a huge ball hog for a guy who never seems to be knocking down shots.

    Only down by 12 at the half, which isn't as bad as it could be given the rotation we are sporting right now, but still, no reason to believe we will compete at all in the 2nd half.

    I knew they would never pick up Dally. Dally doesn't have the motor the Cavs want or need.

    Watching the new guys is the only thing left to watch now but jeez the NBA ought to cancel that London game if this is the team they send to play in that game. Hopefully Stat and Melo are back to represent the team and the NBA over there.

    Wait a minute. Nene retaliates against a Jason Smith foul under the hoop with a cheap shot elbow and that's a technical foul. Since when is hitting a guy a tech only. Nene should be ejected. It won't affect the game at all, but that's some bull right there.
