In honor of tonight's loss and former Wizard Etan Thomas' birthday, I think all comments should be submitted in the form of a poem. I, for one, am terrible at poetry, but I'll attempt my best thoughts of this game in the form of a haiku.

Brian Cook shoots the ball

He attempts to spear basket

John Wall is displeased

I mean, good lord man! Have a little professionalism.

Notes after the break.

Time for John Wall to wake up - Wall always seems to sleepwalk through his matchup with Demar Derozan and tonight was no exception. Wall didn't look completely engaged until late in the second quarter and floated in and out of the game. As the best player on either side of the court, he needed to impose his will and instead just faded out.

Brian Cook needs to go away - I am not dropping this. That was terrible.

Chris Singleton is making strides as a 3 & D- Its not quite there yet, but it appears to be developing. The next step is to stay active and awake on both ends for the entire game.

Kevin Seraphin continues to develop - The strides that have been made over the last 20 games have been incredible to watch. Just a great game from the MBP
