Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-07

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-07
The Wizards' next eight opponents, for all intents and purposes, stink.

Washington is prepared to play stretch of their schedule that, perhaps in another time and place, they would be looking forward to, talking about making a push to the All-Star break to better position themselves for the sprint that is the second half of the season.

Beginning tonight at home with underachieving Toronto, the Wizards won't see another team playing wining basketball until they face the Lakers on Jan. 22.

"It's an interesting stretch for us that is going to tell us a lot about what type of pride we have," Wizards forward Antawn Jamison said. "In the predicament that we're in, we really can't look forward to playing anyone as much as they are looking forward to playing us. But I don't go out like that. I go out every night thinking that this is a game we can win."

But even though they are not saying it openly, Washington's players are clearly at that point where caring is truly difficult. They are the worst team in the Eastern Conference, and the only team that is playing any worse than they are is Oklahoma City.

However, that team expected to be bad, the Wizards did not. And when it gets like that in a professional locker room, it is only a matter of time before minds start to wander into the offseason.

MAGIC 89, WIZARDS 80: Caron Butler exploded for 29 points in the second half but it wasn't enough to prevent the Wizards from falling to Orlando for the third time this season.

"We got ourselves in a hole and had to fight just to get back in it," Butler, who went 0-for-5 in the first half, said. "We couldn't afford to do that in their place -- we can't afford to do that anywhere -- and hope to get back into the game."
