    Neto was open for a catch and shoot at the FT line. I don't know if that was the design. The defense was doubling Beal at the 3pt line, leaving Neto open. Should have been and easy pass.

    Chances of him making that with .7 second still slim to none. Part of the problem was Neto wasn't even looking for the pass. He never thought it would even go to him.

    Looks like he expected Neto to fade to the Three Point line on the other side
    This is similar to the Game where Utah neglected the tying 2 for the game winning 3

    Do the rockets get the wizards pick this year if they make the playoffs or does that next season?

    He is pretty legit when he is 100% healthy.

    I don’t think he can stay that way for long though.

    I miss being able to make fun of Russell Westbrook and feeling like we fleeced Washington in the John Wall trade. Those were the good old days.

    If we had him instead of Wall, we wouldn't be salivating over the top 4 picks.

    While he probably would lose a ton of games for us we would have lost anyway, and he would also win a few games with one of his hot streaks that put us out of the tanking range.

    I mean i've been laughing all year. especially about how folks thought this guy still impacts winning. Oh and they're 1-7 in their last eight. His numbers still mean next to nothing. People who are a fan of him whoever is left, can drool over his meaningless numbers but at the end of the day his team still loses which is the most important thing

    It's amazing how much losing this guy attracts.

    All world talent, but he just doesn't know how to be a team player.

    Westbrick is the most stats-aware player of all time, he got the stat-padding thing down to a science now.

    After the last couple games where he stat-padded loads of uncontested defensive rebounds (18 and 19 total), he's once again averaging a triple-double for the season (his only reason for playing at this point in his career). He's also getting closer to Harden in assists per game, I wouldn't be surprised if he's trying these last few weeks of the season to increase the stat-padding in that area to spoil Harden's achievement.

    I hope he gets it, so we might see the first triple double player not make All-NBA

    If the media didn't vote JH for All-NBA while scoring 29ppg (w/more ast/reb than previous year) as an All-Star on a playoff team (playing 82 games), after two 1st Teams in a row (2nd in MVP previous year), then it would be very interesting if WB makes it. Two Wizards making All-NBA, on the current 5th worst team ... lulz

    He looks like he’s healthy. Things might have been different if he was in this shape last playoffs.

    Now there is a new narrative of Beal leaving next year.
    Seems like a push
