The Wizards beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 113-99 on Sunday. The game wasn't as close as the final score indicated.
Randy Wittman's postgame presser is embedded above, and other players' videos are below
Here's a recap roll from the night:
This was a big win, so I found a couple more links to share.
Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post had another piece on Porter, who has had two strong games after a poor performance against the Bulls last Wednesday. The spark may have come from Coach Wittman, who spoke with Porter after Wednesday.
Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer had this money quote to start out this column on Kyrie Irving:
Kyrie Irving has to commit to sacrificing his scoring numbers to make his teammates better on a routine basis.
Irving is not a pass-first player like Wall or Cavaliers forward LeBron James is. Since James sat out Sunday's game, the ball wasn't moving as efficiently. I felt like Haynes was piling on Irving a bit at times, but he also mentioned that Matthew Dellavedova is averaging more assists than him too.
Hall of Fame point guard Isiah Thomas recently gave John Wall a pep talk. No doubt this man was going to get some mentions in the postgame thread since what was discussed in that talk has sparked Wall and the rest of the team:
As long as Wall doesn't pick up Thomas' post-NBA career habits, I think he'll be alright.
We go to Thailand to try these deep fried pancakes from Thailand. These are often made at street vendors and are a hit with tourists. Check out this recipe here and the video below.
