Drew Gooden has shown the Wizards enough in his brief stint to warrant keeping him in the fold and then deciding whether or not to keep him for a longer term.
Coach Randy Wittman had told his team to talk to each other to work out their issues in the flow of the game, but that didn't consistently happen until Andre Miller arrived and Al Harrington returned from injury.
The oldest members on the Wizards, Andre Miller, Al Harrington and Drew Gooden, made a major impact in the win vs. the Jazz, their seventh overall in eight games.
With Nene out of the lineup with a knee injury, Marcin Gortat, who was the fifth option in the offense, has become more productive by running a plethora of pick-and-rolls with John Wall.
The Wizards 30-somethings were an unlikely source to key the Wizards to victory over the Jazz.
