Wizards show up after butler returns

Posted on: March 24, 2008 12:19 am
The Wizards have just won their 4th game in a row after deafeating the Pistions. And, the pistions are considered one of the top teams in the nba and mainly in the east. But the wizards handeled them tonite thanks to Caron Butler and antwan jamison and their supporting cast. All i can say now is that caron butler has to stay healthy along with every other wizard in order for us to do something in the postseason. Caron deserves some type of award for what he has the last two years hes had bad injuries and fought through adveristy to get back on the floor. Last year he broke his hand twords the end of the season against the Bucks then this year he has done everything from spraining his ankle to tearing a muscle in his hip and now playing with a chiped bone in his wrist. That shows what a real man is. All the wizards need to do now is focus on staying healthy and winning games which is what most teams are doing throughout the year but the wizards also have to maintain a good spot in the eastern conference. Right now, they are the 5th seed behind Boston, Detroit, Orlando and Clevland and the wizards have beaten all of those teams atleast once this year. Then you have the Raptors, Sixers, Nets, and the Bulls trying to make a run. The Wizards just took the 5th seed after tornonto has been stuggiling after Chris Bosh went down with a knee injury. So, if the playoffs where to start today they would play the mighty cavs who is always a tough matchup mainly because of there own beast LeBron James. In the last 3 years the Wizards have made the playoffs the last two year they played the cavs and lost. Thats the only reason i dont want to play the cavs. But, the year before those two we played the bulls and won and went on to face the Heat and then lost to them. I doubt the wizards can get the third seed wich would be nice but that still doesnt really help cause if they beat out the Magic and the cavs for the 3rd seed then they would still have to play on of those teams anyway. And it is Highly unlikely for the wizards to take over the first or second seed. So hopefully they can find a plan to guard the dangerous Forward, Lebron James.
