Sorry Pixels are coming late today. *insert joke about today's Pixels being about the old Wizards, and the Pixels themselves being old news by now* Hardy har har.
But yeah, this game was pretty boring. The Jazz are terrible, the Wizards didn't even seem to care much, and they still won by double digits. Washington repeatedly staked out to big leads, only to fall asleep and watch Utah slowly creep back into the game before waking up and building their lead back. Snore.
Sidenote: Wait a minute, have we really gotten to the point where a Wizards win can be boring?? But I digress.
Once again, Trevor Ariza led the way offensively with 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting (4-of-6 from three). The Wiz also got decent games from John Wall (14 points, 10 assists), Bradley Beal (22 points) and Marcin Gortat (16 points, nine boards).
Trevor Booker didn't do much, recording four points and four rebounds in 16 minutes, but that didn't matter because Al Harrington and (wait for it...) Drew Gooden (!!) combined for 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes. Gooden was particularly good, going 6-for-7 from the field. Meanwhile, Andre Miller notched six assists in only 13 minutes. This is where I'd make a joke, but Randy Wittman dropped an AARP quip during his postgame, so I'll just leave it at that.

20 - Washington scoring advantage in the paint, where the Wizards outscored the Jazz, 56-36. Sorry, but I really couldn't find a more exciting stat. This was a really nondescript game.
