I could write a thousand-word rant about this game, and I probably will tomorrow, but for now, I'll just ask this question.

Caron Butler.  Star player, model of efficiency, team leader, 28-point scorer in the game.  Why didn't he get/demand the ball on any of the final few possessions of the game, when the lead was just three?  

That lack of recognition tells you all you need to know about this game.  The Wizards should have won, but they allowed the Nets to outwork and outcoach them on both ends of the floor.
