Playing in their fourth game in five nights, the Washington Wizards limped into Phoenix to close out their west coast road trip against the Suns.

Meanwhile Paul Pierce was slowed by a nagging toe on his left foot that held...
For those of us who have spent decades watching NBA basketball, it often strikes us the frequency of gentle pleasantries among members of opposing teams. It is no rare sight to see a center drop a shooting guard in mid-flight only to offer him a loving hand of reconciliation. We have all seen the offensive display of a small forward joking mid-game with his defensive assignment,...
The Washington Wizards came back and beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 98-92, after being down by 19 points. One of the plays that helped the Wizards? A putback dunk by Kris Humphries.

Paul Pierce seems to be fully embracing his role as the NBA’s awesome old guy.
Pierce continues to be a legitimate contributor for one of the Washington Wizards — one of the Eastern Conference’s best teams — but his play might be taking a back seat to the things he continues to say.
The former Boston Celtics star doesn’t limit his talk to off the court, though. He...

Le Crochet de Ciel, when translated from French to English becomes: the sky hook. I started noticing the phenomenon on December 5th, 2014. There was a lunatic Wizards fan somewhere in the 100 level of the Verizon Center. I don’t know who he was or where he sat. All I remember is the screams. “HOOK!! […]

That call could come soon.
As the Washington Wizards vie for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, Allen would be a “natural” fit to back up starting shooting guard Bradley Beal, CSN Washington’s J. Michael reported Friday. Although Allen is said to be considering...
