John Wall Deserves Better from Wizards

Embed from Getty Images John Wall’s 41-point performance Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors was overshadowed by Stephen Curry’s 51 points and 11 made three pointers. Still, Wall’s effort should be applauded. If anything else, it solidified why he is a top-tier point guard. Easily his best performance of the season, Wall was efficient shooting, making 17...

The Washington Wizards play 41 regular season home games like every other team in the NBA, but in a few instances each season, they feel like the road team at Verizon Center.

Key Pieces Wizards Could Target in Trades

WASHINGTON — The Wizards would love to have Kevin Durant. They would love to have DeMarcus Cousins, too. DeMar DeRozan, Nicolas Batum and Al Horford are all free agents after this season, and the Wizards would probably be ecstatic to add any of them to the team. But assume for a moment Washington can’t lure any top-tier, or even second-tier, free agents in the offseason. Assume...

Jared Dudley jumps on Nuggets player’s back on rebound attempt

Washington Wizards forward Jared Dudley did everything he could to haul in a rebound in Thursday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets.
