Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-18

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-18
One of the biggest areas of concern for the Wizards is that they don't have anyone on the roster who can create his own shot off the dribble on a regular basis. Gilbert Arenas is the exception to that rule, but Arenas won't be back on the court until sometime next month at the earliest.

The one player who could fill this role -- and the Wizards hope he starts doing this soon -- is second-year guard Nick Young.

To that end, Wizards coach Ed Tapscott said that he is going to give Young more freedom on the court. In essence, he doesn't want Young looking over his shoulder when he makes a mistake, expecting to be pulled from the game.

"I'm going to take a little blame for Nick's recent troubles," Tapscott said. "I've had him thinking a little too much. Sometimes you can stress execution, execution, execution and what that does is it starts to make a guy think too much. He's thinking about every move, every step he makes. That's hurting him."

He gets no argument from Young.

"It's good to hear him say that because you do start thinking about everything you do," Young said. "That takes away from my game and what I can do for this team."

Young hopes to put his new mindset on display Friday when the Wizards host Philadelphia and attempt to avenge a loss to the Sixers suffered last week.

PISTONS 88, WIZARDS 74: The Pistons evened their record versus the Wizards this season at 1-1 after holding the Wizards to just 16 points in the fourth quarter to pull away in the victory. Recently-acquired guard Mike James led the Wizards with 16 points but received little help. The Wizards were just 26-of-78 from the field. Washington got decent performances from Antawn Jamison (14 points, 11 rebounds) and Andray Blatche (12 points, 11 rebounds). Allen Iverson scored 28 points for Detroit.
