A Positive Week

Three games, three quality wins in a row over three playoff teams, the Clippers; the Knicks and the Nets.

This kind of streak, that has seen the Wizards go 10 and 7 and play at a playoff qualifying pace during that stretch, has made many people smile and be positive. The team is appreciative of the positive pixels.  It may seem "perplexing and cute" to some pundits, but it is what the franchise expected and what the players are earning through their hard work and dedication.

That feels good. Last night's game against the Nets was another positive step forward. We had a 20 point lead. The Nets made a run, the lead was hovering around 10 points, and then the team was able to step back on the gas and cruise to an easy win.

Close losses, which there were many when the team was hobbled by injury, are now turning into comfortable winning margin games for the team. All three games this week were won by 10 points or so.

The team is playing with confidence and many players are contributing in many different ways.

Thanks to the large and happy crowd at the game last night for being so supportive. Pixelmania from around the web is here, here, here, here and here.
