WASHINGTON - - The Washington Wizards overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit Friday night, beating the first-place Orlando Magic, 104-97, in the team's first game at Verizon Center since Gilbert Arenas' suspension. Antawn Jamison, who took a microphone to address fans before the game, had 28 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Wizards. Jamison called the whole situation "very embarrassing" and told the sellout crowd that "being a positive role mode is something we don't take lightly."

Will they make a deal? When Jordan Crawford was asked how he felt about not appearing in a series of games, the Wizards' reserve shooting guard replied, "I'm good. " But he let his frustrations known on Twitter by subtly mentioning his stats from December, when the Wizards were placed in his hands and he produced quality numbers but few wins. The Wizards' leading scorer before John Wall made his debut and Bradley Beal began to gain some confidence, Crawford has had his role steadily diminished in the past month — first, by a bone bruise in his left ankle and second, by some poor play — and now appears to be the odd man out. The Wizards are 6-2 in the past eight games that Crawford hasn't played, but he has attracted the attention of several teams around the league seeking some offensive punch off the bench.

WASHINGTON - -Two things occurred Wednesday night that no one could have foreseen in training camp. One, on a team with three All-Stars, Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders would draw up a final shot for Earl Boykins. And two, Boykins would step to the foul line with fans at Verizon Center chanting, "MVP! MVP!" But Boykins has been the difference for the Wizards during their recent run of success, and he again came up with a huge fourth-quarter performance as Washington defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-102.

When the Washington Wizards set a franchise record for futility in Charlotte on Friday night, coach Flip Saunders explained his team's recent struggles by stating succinctly, "We just don't have enough." But as they prepared to host the Utah Jazz at Verizon Center on Saturday, the undermanned and overmatched Wizards realized that they were going to have a little less. Randy Foye was forced to finally rest his sore left wrist, which had been bothering him for nearly a month and contributed to his losing his starting point guard job to Shaun Livingston.

WASHINGTON - - The crowd at Verizon Center might have been smaller than usual because of some poor weather outside and some inferior play inside in recent weeks, but the few fans who opted to brave the snow and watch the Washington Wizards had plenty to cheer about Saturday night. With Antawn Jamison more aggressive than ever on the glass and Mike Miller more aggressive than any other time this season with his shot, the Wizards defeated the New York Knicks, 106-96, before a generously announced crowd of 16,233.

On one of the rare times Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce missed a shot Sunday, Andray Blatche corralled the rebound and fired a full-length pass down the court to Nick Young for a vicious one-handed jam. Admiring his work, Blatche stopped at half-court, looked over at the Washington Wizards bench and smiled as he struck his version of the Heisman Trophy pose. Blatche later joked that he's "a quarterback," showing a playful side that he had hid the past few games as fans at Verizon Center booed him. Blatche played through the distraction, just as Young was able to fight through a left hand injury.

— John Wall was dribbling up the court at a frenetic pace, with defenders backpedaling helplessly and teammates gasping to catch up. Wall whirled the ball behind his back to juke Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague and open what appeared to be a clear lane to the basket. But as Wall elevated for a dunk, Hawks forward Josh Smith tracked him down, smashing his shot attempt and sending Wall crashing to the floor. Wall rolled on the ground, holding the back of his head and grimacing.

Andray Blatche was not made available Tuesday, a day after he expressed his frustrations about the way he was used in the Wizards' opening-night loss to the New Jersey Nets. He sneaked through the back exit after practice, and avoided crossing paths with reporters, but didn't necessarily go quietly. Blatche responded to reaction of his criticism of the coaching staff for not getting him the ball in the low post by going on Twitter to write, "Every body need to shut up I didn't call out my coach or team mates I said I had a bad game need it n the post instead of jump shots.

John Wall was a blur, moving so fast that he barely gave the New York Knicks time to blink before he was blowing by them. After former Washington Wizard Roger Mason Jr. made a long jumper with about four seconds left in the first quarter, Wall didn't give his opponents a chance to get comfortable before he took an inbounds pass and darted the full length of the court. Anthony Randolph finally reacted, but when he goaltended Wall's shot attempt off the glass, Wall had gone from one end of the floor to the other in 3.9 seconds.

While the Washington Wizards introduced a youthfully overhauled roster, including No. 1 overall pick John Wall, to the media on Monday, the spotlight during the approximately two-hour session quickly turned to their longest-tenured player when guard Gilbert Arenas entered the practice court at Verizon Center. After several stops to pose for pictures, the three-time All-Star participated in a short news conference in which he answered questions, mostly about his comeback from last season's 50-game suspension for bringing firearms into the Verizon Center locker room.
