Wizards vs. Knicks: Game 4 Reactions, What Now?

Updated: November 8, 2008
Are Things Crumbling for The Washington Wizards?Yep, that’s how I feel today.

Unexpectedly went to the Wizards-Knicks game last night (big ups to my friend Rob who called with the extra ticket….ups also to Rob’s friend Jo(h)n, from whom Rob got the ticket)….took a bunch of pictures, drank some Crown & Cokes, have some thoughts.

I’ll get a game blogish/defensive analysis up on Bullets Forever later (home game blogs are on BF this season, you’ll find the away games here on Truth About It), but until then, I wanted to get up a post on the best game recaps from around the web.


  • Another appropriate adjective would have been frustrating. The Wizards outrebounded the Knicks and outscored them in the paint and on second-chance opportunities – all by double-digit margins. But trailing in two other categories – 3-pointers and assists – sunk the Wizards in a 114-108 loss at Verizon Center that dropped them to 0-4.

  • I’m so thoroughly disgusted right now. We’re 0-4, with losses to the Nets, Bucks and Knicks, two of which came at home! I know there’s no Brendan Haywood and Gilbert Arenas, but we can’t be this bad.

  • Disappointment is an understatement at this point. One could argue for a Wizards win in each of the four losses so far in this season. I want to say it is mainly the Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee situation, or rather, who do you rotate in behind Etan Thomas and Antawn Jamison? One interesting thing to note is Coach Eddie Jordan played both Blatche and McGee together late in the first quarter, but I feel when they took Antonio Daniels out of the game and put Dominic McGuire in, there wasn’t enough passers on the court.

  • Andray Blatche had yet another erratic game tonight. In the first half he showed why the Wizards are so high on him with 7 points, 2 assists and 3 rebounds and he did a great job at letting the game come to him. In the second half, he forced bad passes, did not run the offense as effectively, and he just seemed two steps behind. After playing nine minutes in the first half, Blatche only saw four minutes of action in the second half.
