Random Blurb

Thomas' previews get me thinking about music for some reason. With Chris Paul and John Wall playing tonight, this song came into mind:

Anyway, it's a big game between two of the league's best playmakers and we get a chance to see if the Wizards can slow down one of the NBA's most dynamic offenses.

I honestly don't care how many times Marcin Gortat and John Wall get posterized by Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, given their tendency to make highlight reel dunks. But I do care to see if the Wizards can get another signature win at the end. Let's get it done.
