Washington Wizards Team Analysis

A recent Grantland piece leads to a number of questions about the importance of Martell Webster and the need for role-playing wings that can shoot and defend.

Aiming for one spot out of the playoffs may feel like the height of short-sightedness, but it certainly isn't pointless.

Why can't the Wizards win on the road?

Trying to figure out why the Wizards' home/road splits are so large.

Ernie Grunfeld did his job

'Tank' or not 'tank'?

With 11 games left in the season, it's time to ask the question: should the Wizards give their young players more opportunities?

The Wizards' defense is elite

Washington continued its season-long defensive onslaught of other teams in a 15-point drubbing of Brooklyn on Friday night. How good has the Wizards' defense been recently? We take a look at the numbers.

Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman said the Wizards didn't get the ball inside enough against the Grizzlies. Is this critique valid?

Were the Wizards right to avoid trading for Rudy Gay? Probably. But if you were trying to make the case that Gay would have been a smart acquisition, it would have looked something like this.

Assigning blame for Thomas' big night

How was Isaiah Thomas able to do whatever he wanted against the Washington Wizards' defense on Monday night? We go to the tape to assign blame.

Playoffs?

It's farfetched, I know, but for those asking: here's what it'll probably take for Washington to be a playoff team this year.
