Not to take anything away from Antawn or Caron, but is anyone else surprised on how well the Wizards are playing?

The players are conscious of the situation, but so far fatigue hasn't been a concern.
"Not yet. I don't think we would feel it this month," said forward Antawn Jamison. "Once you get into January and definitely February, you're going to feel it more. By that time, Pesh (Oleksiy Pecherov ) will be back. It's a long season. You have to learn how to recuperate your body and go through the rigors of 82. Sometimes it's difficult."
"I've been looking forward to December," said Caron Butler, who leads the team in minutes played this season. Butler and Jamison both are averaging more than 39 minutes per game and they are the only teammates to rank in the top 10 in minutes played.
