Recap: Wizards overcome poor shooting and a #MaynorTime cameo in the Bay

The After Party: Where we channel all of your Wizards post-game essentials into one massive data over-filled post. Locker room interviews, choice excerpts from the game captured off of a TV screen by way of Vine (we like to call them VINElights), and a selection of delectable in-game tweets finger-picked from #WizardsTwitter.


Wizards 88 — Warriors 85

January 28, 2014
Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA

It’s a Bay Area block party!


A #SoWizards start to the game quickly turned into #SoJohnWall after Wall instantly redeemed himself for mishandling the opening tip-off. As Steph Curry grabbed the steal and raced down court for a layup, Wall blessed Wizards Nation with his signature chase-down block to deny Golden State’s first points.



Smirks and smiles all around!

“It wasn’t pretty for either team .. but these are the kind of games our defense can win for us when we’re shooting 37 percent.”
— Randy Wittman

wall warriors

“My teammates and my coaching staff trusted me; I feel like I had some good looks like I did the other night and I just couldn’t make them. But I stuck with it and kept playing defense and didn’t let it get me down.”
— John Wall

“I wasn’t gonna get down on myself in the first half because I got good looks .. I didn’t lose my confidence .. I knew in the second half I had to step up for this team to win.”
— Bradley Beal

The surprising and yet still forgettable stretch of #MaynorTime after nine games had all of us dazed with questions. Why is this happening? What is Randy Wittman thinking? Why does that floater still exist? WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO GARRETT TEMPLE!?

Temple ended up being just fine, getting some burn in the second half, and ultimately this all just seemed like Wittman exploring how Maynor has come along since being banished to the dog house, perhaps with thoughts of upping trade value?

Who knows but after just six minutes and 39 seconds, a missed 3, and a shitty floater, Wittman got whatever answer he was looking for.
