1. Andre Miller dishes to Kevin Seraphin for the win
Raise your hand if you had Seraphin scoring a game-winning basket for the Wizards ... ever. I thought so.
But last night, thanks to an incredible pass from Miller, he did just that. That gave the WIzards a 91-89 victory over the Detroit Pistons.
Here's the wining combination for the WIzards in Vine form:
After defenders converged on Miller near the basket, he saw Seraphin making a move to the hoop out of the corner of his eye and somehow got the ball to him for the dunk. It's nice when your backup point guard has that type of vision. It was also his 11th assist of the game.
Here's what was said about the game around the internet:
2. Bradley Beal has successful surgery
The Wizards say he will need approximately six weeks to recover. Here's hoping it's that low end and not the higher eight-week-or-beyond timetable that's been floated elsewhere.
Here's our coverage of it.
