Yeah, I know this game sucked, but the Wizards have several built-in excuses. This was the last game of a long road trip, so they were probably tired. They also played last night, and it's their fourth game in five nights. Meanwhile, the Knicks were well-rested and had the tremendous energy of the home crowd inspiring them, not to mention that they're among the league's best home teams and a definite championship contender.
I hold all that to be the truth, the full truth and nothing but the truth.
