Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-22

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-22
As the Wizards arrive at the numerical midpoint of the season with seemingly nothing to play for, one question that has to be asked is: When will the season truly be for naught?

Could it be time for the organization to start being more concerned with accumulating ping-pong balls to improve its chances at getting a better lottery pick as opposed to trying to rack up victories?

"Nope, I'm not going to be a part of that process," team captain Antawn Jamison said. "Until further notice our job is to win as many games as we can. We're playing to win."

Teammate Mike James agreed.

"As tough as it is, losing games and not caring in the process would just make everything even worse," James said. "It would make what's been a long season even longer."

The Wizards reached the midway point of their West Coast road trip last night with a game at Sacramento, a team that has had a season almost as brutally bad as Washington's. The bad news is that the final two games of the trip will see the Wizards playing at the Lakers Thursday and closing the trip with a game Saturday at Portland.

WIZARDS 110, KINGS 107: The Wizards built a comfortable lead early and survived a rally by Sacramento to earn their ninth win of the season.

The Kings, down 19 points at the start of the fourth quarter, closed to within 108-107 on a three-pointer from Francisco Garcia with 3.9 seconds to play. Antawn Jamison's two free throws with 3.4 seconds remaining restored the Wizards' lead to 110-107, and with time running out Garcia missed a long jumper that could have tied the game.

Jamison led the Wizards with 33 points. Caron Butler added 32 as the Wizards earned their first road victory of the calendar year 2009.
