Ball movement leads to better shots and less pressure on […]... read more...

  • For 12 minutes in the Washington Wizards’ convincing, 91-78 victory Friday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kevin Seraphin, an inconsistent fifth-year project with seductive potential, displayed why he remains a rotation piece on a team loaded with proven front-court options.

  • The scouting report on Andre Drummond that circulated in the Washington Wizards pregame locker room included a factoid they sought to exploit whenever necessary Wednesday night against the Detroit Pistons: Drummond’s mediocre pick-and-roll defense. The flaw was evident immediately in the Wizards’ 107-103 victory. It took Drummond just five minutes and 16 seconds to commi... read more...
