Quote of the day
"Our new team motto is, 'I love it' It started off sarcastic, but now we use it for everything. I had five turnovers, but I love it." -- Nets guard Deron Williams, after a 7-point overtime win in Philly
New Wizards head coach Randy Wittman couldn’t have scripted a better opening matchup. He got to face the Charlotte Bobcats, one of the league’s doormats. Of course, so are the Wizards. But the Wiz prevailed at home, notching their third win of the season – tied with Charlotte and New Orleans for the lowest win totals so far.
Lousy teams sometimes have multiple players who are valuable from a fantasy perspective. With a new coach, you always wonder whether patterns of playing time will change. And last night was not a good sign for fantasy managers of Wizards players, as the minutes were spread around rather uniformly among 11 players, with nobody on the court for as much as 30 minutes, and only two players with more than 25 minutes - Nick Young (29) and John Wall (26). Worth monitoring.
