Armstrong: Five thoughts on Calderon, LeBron, and more
Quote:

3. Jose Calderon (Raptors) - Received some comments about the fact that he didn't play in fourth quarter vs. Heat. Jerryd Bayless ran the team. Still has a ways to go with his point guard and decision-making skills. Calderon had five turnovers in the game which is unusual for him. He had 17 assists and almost a triple-double in the previous game. He'll be fine. He's played well for them and I read nothing into it whatsoever. Just a coach going with the hot hand that day. He's an important and respected piece of the puzzle.

4. Raptors on Road - Toronto plays their 17th road game here in Washington D.C. this evening. Amazing. Will be done with more than half their road games with two-and-a-half months to go in the season. Should allow for more stability, practice time, teaching and rest. That should help. Wins? Who knows, but I think their quality of play should/will improve.


Game Story

Quote:
THE FACTS: John Wall had 31 points and Nick Young added a season-high 29 points as the Washington Wizards blew an 18-point deficit and hung on to beat the Toronto Raptors 111-108 in overtime on Monday night.

Washington held Toronto without a field goal in overtime and outscored it 6-3. It was the Wizards' fifth win in 25 games. Trevor Booker added a season-high 19 points.

Jerryd Bayless and Linas Klieiza each had a season-high 30 points for the Raptors. Bayless scored 16 points in the fourth quarter to help force overtime.

QUOTABLE: "That was a bad exhibition of basketball."
-- Toronto coach Dwane Casey on his team's loss

THE STAT: After the Raptors outrebounded Washington 61-34 in Friday's loss, Toronto had just one more rebound than the Wizards -- 42-41. The 61 rebounds was a franchise high.

TURNING POINT: Young hit two free throws with 1:06 to play to give Washington a 109-106 lead.

QUOTABLE II: "You have to go off on them at halftime to get them to play. It shouldn't ever have to get to that -- and that's why I was disappointed -- even with that second-half comeback."�
-- Casey on his halftime tirade

HOT: Kleiza was 11-for-16 from the field. His 3-pointer with 57.8 seconds left in regulation helped force overtime.

NOT: Amir Johnson. He missed six of seven from the field. The one he hit, a dunk with 10.5 seconds left in regulation, tied the score at 105. In overtime, he had three shots blocked in 16 seconds -- two by Wall and one by Booker.

GOOD MOVE: Wizards coach Randy Wittman told Wall to relax, and he responded. Wall was 10-for-19 from the field and 11-for-14 from the line. "That's as good a game I've had with him," Wittman said.

BAD MOVE: Casey played Aaron Gray for the first eight minutes -- and then sat him in favor of a shorter lineup the rest of the way.

UP NEXT: For the Raptors: Wednesday vs. Milwaukee, Friday vs. Boston, Sunday vs. L.A. Lakers.

STAR:Washington Wizards hold on to beat Toronto Raptors, 111-108 in OT

Quote:
“We had an unprofessional start,” said coach Dwane Casey. “I don’t have an explanation for it and (if) you have to go off on them at halftime to get them to play? It shouldn’t be that, it shouldn’t get to that, that’s why I was disappointed.”

The start was as inexplicable as it was unexpected given the effort the Raptors had displayed just one day earlier in extending the Miami Heat for 48 minutes in a seven-point loss.

And the effort paled in comparison to just last Friday against these same Wizards, when the Raptors dominated in every facet of the game and won easily.

It left Casey in equal parts scratching his head and fuming because his wildly inconsistent team simply doesn’t seem to get what it takes to win regularly in the NBA.

“That’s a bad exhibition of basketball,” said the coach. “As good an effort as we had against Miami (Sunday) and Friday night against this team, it was at the opposite end of the spectrum in the first half.

“We come out and score 63 points (in the second half)? It should never get to that.”

No, it shouldn’t.
