Wizard-Nets Toilet Bowl Running Diary: 3rd Quarter

3rd Quarter
  • Miss, miss, 3-pointer, turnover, turnover, miss.
  • My computer just froze and made me lose about 9 minutes of action, don't worry, you didn't miss anything except for a Shaun Livingstone aggressive spin-move to the rim for a layup and one. He showed the kind of burst and athleticism he has lacked since ruining his knee.
  • Sushi is up to 16 points, Blatche is at 14-10-7, and Mike Miller has 16 points and 12 boards.
  • Javale brought the ball upcourt at one point, then handed-off to Blatche to initiate from straightaway above the 3-point line. Having your 7' center and 6'11" power forward bring the ball upcourt and initiate from outside the 3-point line is exactly how you win the John Wall lottery.
  • Cartier Martin finally checks back in with 1:35 left in the 3rd. He immediately shows some confidence from his 1st-half performance by initiating the offense, only to shoot an air ball. Someone should remind him that his 'solid' performance is coming against the Nets. I couldn't find a picture of him with the Wiz, so went with the D-League one.
  • Nets go on a little run to cut the lead to 9 by the end of the quarter, 80-71. Bad news for John Wall hopefuls, as the Nets are 2-60 when behind after 3 quarters. Sushi was the best Wiz player that quarter, scoring 9 points, even though he sat for the last couple minutes.
