Otto Porter ended the first quarter of the Wizards' game against the Charlotte Hornets with a buzzer-beater assisted by John Wall.
The Wizards have plenty to look forward to this weekend: the first place Toronto Raptors, and Marcin Gortat's action figure.
Marcin Gortat is disappointed he didn't get named to the All-Star team, but understands the decision. He does question the 'politics' behind it, however.
NBA players are used to a pattern; shootarounds, practice, games, it's all very regimented for the best basketball players in the world. So could a disruption in that routine help the Wizards?
LaMarcus Aldridge's rule of thumb? Play through pain if possible.
