    Fri, 22 Mar 2013

    CSN Washington dot com. His play of late has earned him player of the week honors in the Eastern Conference and sits wall return from that knee injury on January the twelfth. The Wizards are nineteen and fifteen that's the fifth best record in the east during that time. Here now look at how wall's court savvy is clearly elevating his teammates. season for extremely well. Here's the wall effect on him all the court's exhibit. The rookie has hit just 34% from deep without on the floor. Furthermore over 40%. Of his attempts of the inefficient range variety without walls directing traffic. He is drove 48%. Of his with the ball on the floor. And over a quarter of his attempts that have come in the restricted area with wall setting him up snake in my game so much easier. And that's making. Taken pressure off. But it's not just deal. Trevor Ariza has been chronically plagued by erratic shooting throughout his career and sure enough. This season he had just 47% of all of the pinch. However. When you shared the these last 41%. From deep and 47%. From the floor overall. Not bad for a career 42%. Three point shooter. Comparisons wouldn't want to win the news who's doing the things things to do to help this team do exhibit C. Webster has actually flourish with outnumbered Su on the floor. Hitting 42%. Of his triples with the ball out of the gate no way he could be better than that right. Wrong. With where all the game Webster shoots a sizzling 49%. From behind are including an absurd. 7% from the corner and this is doing. envision ourselves playing. the players now to the big Fella they may shoot 72%. From the restricted period when was in the game. First only 61%. When he is not. Okafor has scored over fourteen points in the paint. For 48 minutes with the wall in the game and hundred skin without it when Johnson pushing the ball put pressure. Teams of the Wizards have outscored opponents by three point eight points for 48 minutes with the ball on the for the season. Only 2 Eastern Conference teams have better numbers than that. Indiana Pacers. We think it's safe to say that John Wall is hoping his. Max out their ability well without point guard provided him. With the Wizards Max out John Wall. That's the story for another time. CSN Washington dot com.

  2. Ric Bucher: When Beal's ready, bring him back

    Fri, 22 Mar 2013

    Csnwashington.com. They're going to play it by year certainly they'd like him to play because they'd like to have. The best record potentially that they've had in the last five years and that's within reach three more wins. And there there. That said they don't want this to become a chronic recurring problem so. If Bradley can get back to a 100%. Then I would expect you're going to see him back on the court and I'm good with that Bradley can use all the experience he can get particularly playing alongside John Wall. And moving forward well it doesn't sound like much if they can come out of this season saying we played. 500 plus ball we had all of our hands on deck and we had them we posted the best record that we've had in the last five years. That's something to build on psychologically going into next season. CSN Washington dot com.
