WASHINGTON - The offense was dragging and desperately in need of some direction when coach Randy Wittman called on his most tested veterans to serve up a lesson in ball movement, hustle and huge shots. With Andre Miller putting on a point guard clinic, Al Harrington delivering a flashback offensive performance and Drew Gooden dashing all over the court with abandon, the Washington Wizards went into the locker room Sunday with a double-digit halftime lead over the Indiana Pacers. When the Wizards returned for the third quarter and Wittman put the game back into the hands of his starters, the offense flew off the rails once again.

INDIANAPOLIS  - Washington's basketball franchise hadn't experienced the pleasure of winning a second-round playoff game since the Ronald Reagan administration and hadn't won a game of any kind in Indiana since George W. Bush was in office, but when the Wizards arrived at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday for their Eastern Conference semifinal game against the Pacers, the Wizards were more concerned with making history than allowing the failures of...

ESPN knows that sex sells, and it takes advantage of that adage each summer with its "Body" issue. This video will give you a taste of the 2013 edition. The pages feature hard-bodied athletes such as 49erws quartback Colin Kaepernick, Washington Wizards guard John Wall and volleyball star Kerri Waslh Jennings in skimpy outfits, or none at all -- really, not much different from the way many athletes perform. But this is a more Vanity Fair-like treatment, with the bodies glistening with dew, rather than sweat.

Kentucky freshman point guard John Wall has electrified crowds this season. He won over LeBron James long ago. James has developed a strong relationship with the speedy Wall, who has attended the MVP's basketball camps. Earlier this week, Wall scored a season-high 25 points, including 12 of No. 4 Kentucky's final 15 in a victory over No. 14 Connecticut at New York's Madison Square Garden - one of James' favorite stages.

Jimmer, Rubio look good K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Every NBA season presents surprises, but the fact Jimmer Fredette is more than just a shooter has to rank up there for this crazy campaign. Fredette still makes rookie mistakes, but his decision-making process is better than projected and he isn't the statue on defense some had predicted. Another rookie, Ricky Rubio, also has surprised by being better than his considerable hype. Granted, he's a non-traditional rookie, but his ability to keep a live dribble and patiently wait for plays to develop belies his lack of NBA experience.

Three games into his college coaching career, Isiah Thomas was already asking for mercy. Midway through the second half of Florida International's 81-49 loss at Tulsa on Sunday, Thomas motioned toward his counterpart as if to ask when he'd take his starters out. A few minutes later, he got vocal with his request, shouting a few words in the direction of Golden Hurricane coach Doug Wojcik . At that point, FIU (0-3) was down 63-25 with 8 minutes, 59 seconds to play after being outscored 27-5 to start the second half.

WASHINGTON - Nene grinned, grabbed the bottom of the net and gleefully swung side to side while waiting for his turn during a post-practice mid-range shooting competition on Thursday with teammate Trevor Booker. Every time Booker made a shot, he moved aside, only to watch in frustration as Nene connected and laughed. Booker held his own but eventually had to concede defeat to the physically imposing Brazilian big man with the stunningly smooth jumper. Nene's defensive aggressiveness, savvy passing and wily gamesmanship vaulted the Washington Wizards to a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series against the Chicago Bulls, with Game 3 tonight at Verizon Center . But that jump shot - which Nene spent about 30 minutes mastering with Booker after practice - has repeatedly demoralized the Bulls' vaunted defense and flummoxed Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah.

First, the win helped them hold on to the sixth seed and move within one-and-a-half1/2 games of the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference. And second, the Atlanta Hawks entered the fourth quarter against the seventh-place Charlotte Bobcats with a 15-point lead. But by the time the locker room had cleared, leaving only John Wall remaining to speak to reporters, the Bobcats had rallied to defeat the Hawks, 95-93, on a running jumper by Chris Douglas-Roberts, making sure the final day of the regular season will matter.

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.

John Wall upgraded from a Washington Wizards T-shirt to his No. 2 practice jersey Thursday, a significant development during a season in which his absence has contributed to expectations being downgraded from reaching the playoffs to simply escaping the NBA cellar. For the first time since a stress injury was diagnosed in his left patella in late September, Wall participated in limited-contact drills, sped up and down the court, and traded trash talk with his teammates after making baskets.
