Pulling to get him back soon but until then how McCarty mark in the Wizards taking on Kobe Bryant and the Lakers at the Verizon Center Lakers look at and that's what did losing streak. That was turnovers played a hot start for LA world peace forces is still Chris Duhon who hits it tough to. convinced this is the value of the Lakers their minds early. First possession of the second quarter Martin huge off the bench all night. Catches and from the on the that is good third period Washington one that is one of his five feelings on the night. Keeping it in the second Kevin Seraphin running the floor well. Finishes with a Jim the didn't trail by three third quarter Duhon. This is a wide open three but I'll be right there hit it to go back and into Dwight Howard who puts his head. Jodie Meeks not exactly the biggest name on the LA Lakers but he's hitting it died thirteen. She hits it over Kobe do drills a three he finished with 24 points not look like the Lakers were running away with that but. The Wizards coming back Jordan Crawford would throw the on the break and check out Martell Webster time while I value. Capped off of nine nothing run late for the power up the free throw line up seventh friends out nobody blocks how Kobe. He flies and. Protested that seals it. finished with a game high thirty points a Lakers they went 102. 96. 29 shots to get it. Coming up big for the Wizards as Cartier Martin's 41 points eight boards. For the assistants who steals for him also Kevin Seraphin opposites and seventeen points sixteen points as well. The head down to Verizon Center we welcome Chris Miller RH Chris pay the Lakers struggling coming into this the is another story get rather hanging around but just can't finish it off. And really that's been the theme all year long they compete they play hard down the stretch they make mistakes. In terms of maybe missing field goals. Free throws not boxing out defensive breakdowns that's really been the key for the was it's all yearlong but the Lakers coming in this game. You nudity at lost four straight Kobe Bryant was frustrated even after the game last I the Knicks he jokingly said he was the Washington generals on the schedule. They want the general there of the Wizards are competitive. But he couldn't come away with a win as the Lakers finally finally in that four game losing streak and for Bryant he was extremely pleased afterwards meanwhile Randy Wittman said. It was just Lakers he feels like his basketball team competes against everyone in the league. I think we've been up for just about every game to you know be honest with you. And it I mean that he these games are different no question sellout crowd. Beat the Lakers Kobe you know so. Those those. You better be. Controversial call with a three point showed that because it. I don't agree with that there anymore really focus on Miami Dolphins Morel each other good folks who didn't. Now did take Kobe Bryant 29 attempts to get to thirty points a Lakers and out to an eleven this year when school Kobe scores thirty points or more meanwhile on the bright spots Washington tonight. Carty off the 21 points eight rebounds. As Randy fuel reward him with more playing time tomorrow against Miami because you definitely have to considerate. The Wizards are going into Miami we know the last time these two teams faced off. The Wizards shot the heat I wouldn't be surprised. LeBron and Chris Bosh bring their a games tomorrow night in South Beach.

Fri, 14 Dec 2012
CSN Washington dot com goes less so than the other TV show and I was one that's come here literally here because. They're not serious but. Know Robert had a actually go practice and you know the thing that I I was impressed it him you know we'll practice on Wednesday that he take a look at that hit for after the you know when I look at these games. For the next day I should say and that was that was actually hit so he's gotten better each day and you know doctor doctors. Late Saturday the look at them and make a decision. What's best for him what's the first thing I know he's a game time decision but really we're talking Saturday Kirk or Robert Dillon and you feel starting right what does it take. Mean you know he's gonna Alabi. And awfully hard to do to be on that field that's what you want you want all your players on the lobbying to be on the field. He got that you got right temple player in the comfort level you have. I'm sure you had before last week with Kirk cousins to see what he did coming in and spot duty and performing which your level. Well you are always see excited when a guy takes advantage of the opportunity they're really surprised me just the way he handled himself from pre season. prepared for each game this season. When a guy does it put in the game you can tell us not too big for him. I think Kurt said it best after the game he said they have two for two don't put me in the hall of new lease on game and he understands. That you got to do your job of that under slot ahead. You know when you're drafted curt you know fans media likes and what they do and got a quarterback because Disco. And I don't we're doing now I don't think so I think people you know naturally they see again I've taken before are looking for immediate help but. I am praying for the best players you know in the draft and then. You had the intangibles that you look for me just can't find guys like in the fourth round normally himself. you try to take advantage is something that's there to right time. That hasn't occurred to me very many times since I've I've been in the draft so. Here we took advantage of the opportunity. CSN Washington dot com.
