Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-03-16

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-03-16
Javaris Crittenton, a deer in the headlights when he first arrived in Washington in the Antonio Daniels trade, has been somewhat of a pleasant surprise for the Wizards.

After averaging 3.5 points and 2.1 assists in 14.1 minutes prior to the All-Star break, Crittenton has seen his numbers take a slight jump to the point where he went into Sunday night's game against lowly Sacramento averaging 6.7 points and 2.9 assists in more than 16 minutes per game in the second half of the season.

In the team's loss to Orlando on Friday, Crittenton again got decent minutes and made a contribution, finishing with 10 points and seven assists.

"I have started to get a little more comfortable since all star," Crittenton said. "It's not easy when you have to start all over again. But I'm getting more time and starting to pick up the situation, so that's a good thing."

While interim coach Ed Tapscott does not know if he will be back coaching the team next year, he speaks about Crittenton and some of the younger players continuing to play a role as the season runs down.

"They know that this is an important time for them," Tapscott talking about a host of young players on the roster, said. "I think Javaris might have demonstrated more consistency than any of our other young guys to this point, and that's a testament to him working hard every day."

WIZARDS 106, KINGS 104: The Wizards got a little help from the officiating crew in their narrow victory over the Western Conference's Sacramento Kings who, like Washington, are the worst team in their conference.

Help came in the form of a ruling that Francisco Garcia's jumper with just less than four seconds left in the game was a two-pointer and not a three-pointer, therefore leaving the Wizards with a 105-104 advantage that they would pad with one more free throw to seal the victory.

Antawn Jamison led the Wizards with 30 points.
