Nyjer Morgan aka Tony Plush Attends Wizards Game As Enemy Combatant

Updated: April 7, 2010

Last night, Washington National and San Francisco native, Nyjer Morgan, attended the Wizards game to put on for his Golden State Warriors.

Known in gentlemanly circles as “Tony Plush,” the center fielder showed up at the Verizon Center dressed in a warrior outfit and sat adjacent to a similarly dressed bro, who some have speculated to be the exact physical appearance opposite of Mr. Plush. Both rooted for the enemy.

The presence of Morgan was first noted on the Nationals blog, The Nationals Enquirer, which has a screen-grab of Plush throwing up a numero uno. Site photographer Adam Douglas was also able to get a couple shots of the baseball player.

Unfortunately for Morgan, his Warriors, all seven of them, didn’t provide too many highlights … but one of the few is this Reggie Williams block party …

Williams also had a monster dunk on JaVale McGee, but that didn’t seem to make the game highlight clip from NBA.com …

Okay, before the same I said it seemed like Golden State’s season hasn’t been as bad as Washington’s. Upon reconsideration, that may apply only off the court because the Warriors barely have enough players to actually field at team on the court.

How bad are things? C.J. Watson, who has a rib injury, had to dress tonight for the Warriors to give them the minimum of eight players.

If the last two games have proven anything, it’s that the opponent really does matter. The Wizards (24-53) have already doubled their win total from the month of March, and it has as much to do with playing the New Jersey Nets and Golden State Warriors as it does their inspired play of late. Washington has swept the season series against just three teams this season – Philadelphia (3-0), New Jersey (4-0) and Golden State (2-0), which became the only Western Conference opponent to lose both games to the Wizards.

In the last meeting in Oakland, you’ll recall that Gilbert Arenas went off for a season-high 45 points with 13 assists and Caron Butler also had his best game at that point, with 28 points, 10 rebounds and a season-high five steals. Golden State continues to be the gift that keeps on giving, as their depleted roster — they had just seven healthy players on Tuesday night — restored the confidence of several Wizards by allowing them to have their own personal highlight reels.

Shaun Livingston started his 13th consecutive game for the Wizards and he’s getting better by the day.  Coming in there was no question that he had the ability to run a team.  At 6’7’’ he’s a match up nightmare for opposing teams and Tuesday night he went toe-to-toe with Rookie of the Year candidate Stephen Curry.  Livingston played 37 minutes (good sign the knee is holding up) and scored 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting from the field.  The best thing about Livingston is that he’s a true point guard as evidenced by his eight assists to zero turnovers. Livingston said his main focus as the point guard is control the temp and get guys running and that’s exactly what Flip Saunders likes to see.
