    Got to take advantage of the fact that Nene is out.

    I hope that JV comes out strong in this one, his confidence has been down and he is over thinking too much as of late. He needs to chill a bit and let the game come to him again instead of being overly aggrassive and forcing things.

    I think JV has hit the wall. He has had hardly much rest since the end of last season plus the weight he has put on (adjustment). Hope he takes this summer off except for cardio training and tweaks to his game (foot work. positioning).

    Ya hes definitely hit the wall, and I dont think Big Cat is the right guy at all to be there helping JVs development, They are 2 completely different type of Centers. Big Cat however can teach him better positioning and defense hopefully. I agree however he needs a rest, and then search for a good mentor.

    Maybe. He had a terrific stretch in late January through early February: From that Dallas game on January 22 through the Pelicans game on Feb 10th, he had 6 double-doubles and an 18 and 9 outing. He played very well in that 11-game stretch. It's only been the last couple of weeks where he has really struggled and, even then, he had 18 and 8 against the Cavs.

    Don't want to turn this into a JV thread but a couple of things stand out to me: in the last 6 games, he has had 4 games with 0 FTAs. His last really bad stretch was 3 games from Jan 17 - 20th where, in 3 games, he went to the line zero times. In that good 11 game stretch I mentioned above, 50 FTAs, so, over 4 per game.

    The other aspect that has been really noticable is the pick and roll defense.

    STill, the rebounding hasn't really fallen off so you can't say that he's not making effort plays. I don't know what the issue is but he's had these stretches before and he's always bounced back with a string of solid games. We'll see how the next week or so goes.

    Anyone else notice the huge gashes on Gortats right bicep? Scratches happen, but damn it looks like an actual raptor clawed his arm lol

    lets get the season sweep!

    Need to be aggressive in the paint. Without wizards version of a rim protector in Nene, this should be easier.

    Rebounds have been an issue against the wizards as well.

    I hope to see good performances from our sophomores. Hopefully, Lowry and Demar look for JV this game!

    I'll certainly be missing Nene blow it at the FT line in late game situations, like last time.

    Also worth noting, Gortat dropped 18 and 11 on us a week ago, JV only played 17 minutes. He'll be the main presence inside with Nene out, we'll have to see if Jonas can handle him this time around..

    Our bigs took over that game in the second half. JV doesn't have an issue with Gortat - he has an issue with Wall and Gortat in pick and roll. That's where Gortat got his points, particularly in the first half. I would expect the Raps will be swarming the pick and rolls much more tonight than they did early in that last meeting.

    With the Wizards, it's all about Wall. If you can contain him you basically take Gortat, Beal and, well, everyone else out of the game. They just play off Wall.

    Back off Wall, and let him shoot.

    Wall is shooting just over 33% from 3 this year, he is getting much better

    Right, but I'd still take that over his drive & kick game.

    Every team has someone we need to stop. Thinking like that is the mentality we need to win in playoffs. Forcing the secondary players to beat u increases your odds for success. If we stop John Wall we will win easily tonight.
