The Washington Wizards began the post-All-Star schedule on a hot streak, winning seven of their first nine games to reach .500 for the first time since January. TAI’s Rashad Mobley joined me on The Pixel-And-Roll Show to analyze what went right for the team. In Part One of our discussion, we provide the takeaways from Washington’s victories over the Pelicans, 76ers (twice), Cavs, and also the loss in Chicago.

In Part Two of the podcast, we break down the Wizards’ victory in Minnesota, comment on the play of newly acquired forward Markieff Morris, highlight Alan Anderson’s debut, and jam about Kevin Durant. I am adamant about changing the negative narrative surrounding #KD2DC—I actually think that KD landing in D.C. is more likely than the media portrays.

The episode concludes with a look at the remaining schedule and at Washington’s upcoming road trip to Portland, Utah and Denver.

Our Polish correspondent, Bartosz Bielecki, made his debut appearance on the audio show. Due to Washington losing both weekend games after being a .500 ball club, I bemoaned how Wiz fans can’t have nice things. We recapped what went wrong in both the blowout loss to Cleveland (without Kevin Love) and the tough home defeat against Indiana.

Our show topics included: Polish Heritage Night, Bielecki’s insight into how Marcin Gortat is covered by media in his home country, the impact of Gortat’s foundation for youth basketball in Poland, Gortat’s dicey relationship with his father, Gortat’s views of the Polish people, the reality of Gortat’s political hopes, and Marcin’s new girlfriend.
