A Good Weekend of Basketball at Verizon Center

The Wizards won back to back games on Friday night and Saturday night, and the Georgetown men's basketball team beat Louisville in a matinee on Saturday afternoon.

More than 52,000 people enjoyed strong, entertaining and winning basketball in a 24 hour period in downtown DC this weekend.

The Wizards are on a nice streak - we are 7 and 3 in our last 10 games.

We have won five home games in a row. Our players are confident and we are relatively healthy, although Wall and Nene are still playing on limited and monitored minutes. Read the players quotes here for a measure of their thoughts and the character of the team. Read the writers quotes here - calling the team's  run "perplexing and cute". First time I have seen that string of words together to describe a winning streak.

We play again on Monday night at home - thanks for making Saturday night's game a sellout.
