Press release.

Wittman on mid-range shots

"So you’re saying that a 15-foot open look is not good? "You take open shots. You take open shots. Where they are is dictated by what the defense does. If you predicate what kind of shot you’re going to take not based on what you’re doing reading the defense, you’re not going to get good shots. I just worry about goods shots. You know what? Those numbers you can stick… alright? You know, all you analytical people that take that… You take good shots, that’s the most important thing. Maybe we’re not taking good midrange shots, maybe we’re taking contested ones. I understand the numbers are there for a reason, we look at the numbers, but to sit there and… We got a good, open shot we’re taking, I don’t care where it is."

A great question posed by Kyle Weidie. Not sure what I think of this answer.

Wall on Kyrie

"It’s always tough [facing Kyrie]," Wall said following the game. "Everybody wants to know who is the best young point guard and who’s the best guy in the Eastern Conference. We both do things great for our team. He’s probably a better offensive guy, skill-wise, and can basically take over games with his skills. I’m more of a point guard that likes to get his teammates involved and am blessed with the talents and abilities to get hot and able to score the ball. Guys look at every time we play as a marquee matchup, so everybody is going to be tuned in for the next couple of years."

Great news

And perhaps the best news came when Wall said that his mother, Frances Pulley, is out of the hospital. "She's doing alright. They're still keeping an eye on her," he said. "She was able to go home today,"

Wittman downplays being over .500

"Everybody’s kind of making a big deal [that] we’re over .500," Wittman told LaVar and Dukes on 106.7 The Fan on Tuesday afternoon. "Holy crap. Let’s hope that’s not something we’re celebrating here. I want it to be something bigger than that. I want these guys to understand not so much we got over the hump, but why did we get over the hump, and how did we get over the hump, and how do we stay over the hump?

LeBron on accusations that he's been coasting this season

With two days off this weekend and a refreshing visit to the White House on Tuesday, James promises we'll see a different James against the 17-19 Washington Wizards. "We'll see Wednesday how I'm coasting," James said jokingly as he made his way into the Heat locker room on Monday. "You'll see the numbers I'll put up on Wednesday. Just watch."

GRJR on the origin of his injury

"I might’ve bumped it or something [while celebrating] after the game, but that wasn’t why" the injury occurred, Rice said. "I don’t know. Just wear and tear probably. It’s been bothering me, since before the game and it just got to the point I couldn’t take it anymore. It got tender, right after the game. Walking back in the locker room, I had more pain than usual. I said, ‘It’s starting to hurt, again, a little more.’ "

Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Wittman seems safe for now

The Wizards, while not quite living up to preseason expectations, have sufficiently rebounded from yet another slow start to the point that they're starting to look like what passes for a playoff team in the ugliest Leastern Conference in memory, which should get Wittman through the final year of his contract. Sources say, furthermore, that it's always been the preference of Wizards owner Ted Leonsis to complete the season without changing anything and then assess everything in the offseason with the deals of both Wittman and general manager Ernie Grunfeld expiring.

Randy Wittman on the Gortat situation

I don't know if it was a translation thing, but I talked to him, and what was written and what he said, he said they were two different things. Listen, every player goes through ups and downs of play. Marcin's going through a little bit of a period of downs. That correlates to Nene not being beside him, that plays an important role. When he was playing, in the game against New York, he had 17 points and 16 rebounds doing the same thing [as he has been doing]. He was playing well. I just think sometimes, when you go through a bad spell, you kind of point fingers somewhere. There's no question that he knows what his role is, and all those guys do. That's just what happens sometimes.
