Magical Pixels: The Wizards bought front-row seats to the Kyrie show

New, comments

For a minute there, it looked like the Wizards were going to break out of their slump. Naaaaaaaaaaw.

At first glance, this game looked like the one. You know what I mean, right? A couple of losses to good teams that felt like they could have gone the other way at any time only have one satisfying salve: a weekend win at home in front of a large and excited crowd to a bottom-feeding team. Too bad for the Wizards that the Cavs and Kyrie Irving weren't interested in doling out relief. And too bad for Wizards fans that the their own team couldn't close this game out in regulation.

And things were starting off so well!

New bench crew?

Hey, not too shabby.

Dang! Even Jan Vesely was getting in on it! Too bad Trevor Ariza, Otto Porter Jr, and Chris Singleton couldn't join the fun.

Wait... is that... Never mind.

I mean, things were going pretty great.

I mean, even through the third quarter things were going OK.

Then it started slipping.

NO REALLY KYRIE IS SIIIIIICK on Twitpic

Hmm....

Oof.

Ugh.

Double ugh.

Triple ugh.

:(

The Wizards and Cavs both needed this win tonight. And with the Timberwolves coming to town on Tuesday, I think the Wizards are REALLY going to regret letting this one slip away and get out of hand.
