Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-11-17

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-11-17The mounting injuries to the Wizards backcourt forced the team to add diminutive point guard Earl Boykins to the roster.

With the Wizards down to one point guard (Gilbert Arenas) after Randy Foye suffered a sprained right ankle in the loss to Miami, the Wizards signed the 5-foot-5 veteran to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract.

In 10 seasons with New Jersey, Cleveland, Orlando, the Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State, Denver, Milwaukee and Charlotte, Boykins has averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 assists. He spent last season playing in Italy but never doubted that he would be back in the NBA at some point this season.

"I was out of the NBA, but as long as you're getting paid to play basketball, it's not that bad," Boykins said. "I went to Europe and had some success, but I just didn't want to go back this year. I wanted to be back in the NBA."

PISTONS 106, WIZARDS 103: The good news is that it didn't take long for Earl Boykins to come in and make a big contribution. The bad news is that it wasn't a large enough contribution to prevent the Wizards from dropping their sixth game in a row.

The Wizards fell behind by 13 points in the first quarter, then battled back to take the lead in third, but sloppy play late allowed the Pistons to earn a victory. The Wizards committed six turnovers in the fourth quarter.

Boykins, signed earlier this week, and Mike Miller each scored 20 points to lead the Wizards. However, Detroit's Ben Gordon led all scorers with 29 points.
