The Reaction: Wizards Stomped Out in South Texas
John Wall led all scorers with 21, but the Washington Wizards never recovered from their 26-point first half. The Wiz lost their 13th straight game to the San Antonio Spurs in South Texas, 86-96. John Converse Townsend (@JohnCTownsend) has your rapid recap.
Tony Parker. The PG double-doubled in 33 minutes with 19 points and 12 assists, also adding four rebounds to his stat line. Were you expecting anything less from the Western Conference’s player of the month?
Chris Singleton. Randy Wittman finally let the young wing out of the doghouse, and he played like a man possessed. Singleton helped the Wizards (who trailed by as many as 27 points) get within six points of the Spurs midway through the fourth quarter. He finished with 11 points on 5-for-7 shooting, to go with four rebounds, three steals, one assist, and a team-high plus/minus of plus-16.
That was … hard to watch.
Tim Duncan (8 pts., 5 reb., 14 min.) collapsed in a heap, gripping his left knee, after Martell Webster inadvertently rolled into the back of the Big Fundamental’s leg in the second quarter. Duncan was helped to the locker room by Stephen Jackson and DeJuan Blair, where he was diagnosed with a sprains to his right ankle and left knee. He didn’t return to the game. More details to come.
