NEW YORK -- With Nene and Paul Pierce in the lineup, the ball didn't find Bradley Beal much in the first quarter.


Otto Porter is living proof that you can have a second chance to make a first impression. Actually, even a third opportunity.


All of a sudden, those big wins vs. the Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs don't look quite as good.


No matter how unrealistic some might find Paul Pierce for believing that the Wizards could compete for a championship before coming here, he has them convinced them that they can.


Bradley Beal has shown flashes of brilliance going into his third NBA season but health has been an issue.
