The Washington Wizards' 86-73 win over the Chicago Bulls was the team's seventh in their last 10 games. Afterwards, Nene wanted to make a point. Via Michael Lee:
"I remember in the beginning, everybody say we" stink, Nene said. "Now we start to prove a point. Now we start playing our game, have back all of our players. Now it's our team. Now we're going to shut up people's mouth. That's what we're going to do."
I'll forgive the butchering of the phrase "shut people up" and appreciate the sentiment.
