Sometimes numbers lie. In the case of Eric Maynor up to this point, they don't. The Wizards' backup point guard to John Wall has yet to adapt in his first season with the team.
Discussing the Wizards status in the Eastern Conference on a night they were whacked by the Pacers admittedly isn't ideal.
Already short-handed without Bradley Beal and Al Harrington, the Wizards went into Indianapolis to play the league's best team without their best post player, too.
The Wizards have been playing some of their best basketball of the season over the last five games, but if they are to beat the Indiana Pacers, Washington will have to do so without Nene.
