For Washington? You have your guys. Caron Butler (20 and 10) finally came through with a Caron Butler-type outing, but Gilbert Arenas is floating, and it's worth wondering aloud if the insistence on having Earl Boykins dominate the ball down the stretch is hurting this team. 18 and four assists with no turnovers in 26 minutes for Earl, he's certainly contributing at an efficient clip, but what does it matter if better players can't be themselves. Then again, is Gilbert Arenas himself? We guessed it would take at least a month for the real GA to pop back, and it's been that long.

Kelly Dwyer in today's Behind the Boxscore. I'm quoting this because I think it perfectly sums up the dilemma with Arenas and with the extended use of Earl Boykins down the stretch.
