Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-27

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-27
In years gone by, one thing that was not a worry for the Wizards was who was going to be the team's third scorer.

The pecking order was simple, starting with Gilbert Arenas and then filling in the blanks with Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison.

But with Arenas out of the picture for now -- and depending on whom you speak with perhaps for the remainder of this season gone horribly wrong -- Jamison and Butler have continued to put up numbers. The problem is that the Wizards have been unable to find a third scorer from the wannabes who populate the roster.

The most likely candidate to fill that role would appear to be second-year guard Nick Young. But Young's defensive inconsistency is still the biggest drawback to his game and, as a result, Young is often on the bench late in games because he still has a limited understanding of what playing NBA-caliber defense is.

Mike James has had his moments, but he's pretty much viewed as a journeyman these days, and his long-range role with the team is anybody's guess.

"It is imperative that we find a third guy to give us consistent scoring. I can't ask Caron Butler or Antawn Jamison to do any more than they do," Wizards interim coach Ed Tapscott said.

Good luck with your search, Coach.

SUNS 103, WIZARDS 87: Shaquille O'Neal is 36 years old and not nearly the player he once was, especially when he's playing the second game of a back-to-back set.

But the inept Wizards were little more than a bump in the road for the big man, who turned back the clock with a 29-point, eight-rebound, three-block bombardment of the lowly Wizards.

"The big guy got it going against us, and I don't know if that says more about us or him," Wizards forward Antawn Jamison said after the Wizards lost for the 10th time in their last 12 games.

Caron Butler led the Wizards with 28 points and Jamison added 27 points and 13 rebounds for the hopelessly bad team.

O'Neal's old team, Miami, gets its chance to continue Washington's woes when they play host to the Wizards on Wednesday.
