Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-05

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-05
When Eddie Jordan was coaching the Wizards, he always told his players that the injury to one simply opened up an opportunity for someone else to step up.

This is where Javaris Crittenton finds himself.

With DeShawn Stevenson out for at least the next two weeks, now is the time for Crittenton to show folks what he's capable of.

"I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of things a little bit now," said Crittenton, who played a season-high 21 minutes when the Celtics dismantled the Wizards last week. "I'm trying to practice hard because you are going to play the way that you practice when you get called on. My time is going to come and when it does I want to be ready to make a contribution."

Crittenton finished that game with five points, four rebounds and four assists. In his first 10 games with the Wizards Crittenton, a 2007 first-round pick, played all of 28 minutes.

Interim coach Ed Tapscott says Crittenton just has to be patient and good things will happen for him.

"He has talent but he's a young player who hasn't been asked to do a whole lot of things. That will change. We didn't bring him here just to be a decoration."

WIZARDS 80, CAVALIERS 77: Antawn Jamison nailed a huge shot along the baseline and LeBron James was called for a travel late that iced the Wizards' victory over the team that has eliminated them from the playoffs three years running.

Jamison, who finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds, broke a 77-77 tie with 10.5 seconds left in the game. At the other end, James, who finished with 30 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, was called for an obvious walk, giving the Wizards possession and sealing the victory.

The Wizards, coming off games against Eastern Conference Division-leaders Boston and Cleveland, will face Southeast Division-leading Orlando on Tuesday.
