Paul Pierce may have only played in the first half before getting ejected, but that was apparently enough to earn a game ball from Randy Wittman.

With the Wizards struggling to hold on to what had been a 16-point lead, they didn't turn to their stars to wake them up.
Home is where the heart is, but it wasn't where the Wizards picked up most of their wins last season.
