First off, I'm sorry that I wasn't able to do any postgame links for the last couple days as things were quite busy for me at work. Also, same goes for Jake. To make up for it all, I'll just combine everything into one post.
The Wizards went 2-1 over the last three days. First, they defeated the Utah Jazz on Thursday, 103-89. On the following day, they beat the Pistons, 98-86 in a rare win when they failed to get a #WIZ50. But hey, I'm just glad the Wizards won.
Finally, Washington traveled on the road to Miami on Saturday, but they lost 114-94 since they ran out of gas. Given that the Wizards are the only NBA team to go through a back-to-back-to-back this season and that they won two games out of three, I'll take it.
Here are Randy Wittman's pressers from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Jared Dudley is one of my favorite guys to listen to after a game, win or lose. He also had video interview from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as well.
More takes on the Markeiff Morris Trade
You may have read that the Wizards made a trade deadline deal for Markeiff Morris which sent Kris Humprhies and DeJuan Blair to the Phoenix Suns. Here are some other sites' takes on the move.
- Dan Steinberg of the D.C. Sports Bog gave five reasons why he isn't totally opposed to the deal.
- John Cannady of Wiz of Awes wrote an open letter to Morris. Cannady's message is simple. He likes the competitive fire Morris brings, but he needs to develop a thicker skin with coaches and teammates.
A combined three-game roll-call
We had 110 users comment 3,036 times in our GameThreads for each of the last three games in the last three days. I also included our recap of the Heat game as a GameThread because it was posted a mere four minutes or so after the postgame reaction thread was out.
Here's how you did in the aggregate over the three-day stretch.

The Wizards won twice, so I have to share two pancake recipes.
First, here's a recipe on how to make Palačinke, or Serbian Pancakes. This video below has some music that I'm not the biggest fan of, but video recipes are always fun to watch:
Latkes are potato pancakes that originate from Eastern Europe and the Jewish community. They are deep fried and are especially popular during Hanukkah. Try this recipe here, and of course, a video is below.
We don't have food specials for Sunday. But you did get an Egg McMuffin for Washington's Thursday and Friday performances. You also got a #WIZ50 at Papa John's for the Thursday win as well.
John Wall's also happy that you are out there to support the Wizards each and every night
FYI: for those who randomly overreact, John Wall praised the fans before he joked about the free chicken sandwiches. pic.twitter.com/OIQlNuM9Px— Danny (@recordsANDradio) February 20, 2016
and he's glad that you received one free Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich too if you have a ticket to the game of course.

That's all I have. Enjoy the rest of your weekends.
