Wizards overcome shock of Jamison trade, sink Wolves


By John N. Mitchell, for NBA.com

WASHINGTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- When the Washington Wizards lost at Minnesota the day after Christmas, Antawn Jamison scored 20 points. Gilbert Arenas scored a team-high 26, and Brendan Haywood pulled down 10 rebounds.

Last night at the Verizon, none of those guys were there but the result was different.

The Wizards (18-33), who last night added Antawn Jamison's name to the list of players traded, beat those same Timberwolves (13-42) 108-99 with a rag-tag collection of players at Verizon Center.

Andray Blatche scored a career-high 33 points -- scoring 21 by halftime -- and pulled down a season-high 13 rebounds to lead the Wizards to victory.

Mike Miller, whom the Wizards acquired in a trade with Minnesota along with guard Randy Foye, went 5-for-5 from the 3-point line (5-for-8 overall) for 17 points. Newly acquired Josh Howard finished with 14 points in a reserve role.

Earlier in the day the Wizards were involved in a three-team trade that saw them ship team captain Antawn Jamison to the Cleveland Cavaliers, where the 33-year-old vet should step in with the hottest team in the league and make it even more daunting.

The Wizards also received forward Al Thornton from the Los Angeles Clippers, the third team in the deal.

The Timberwolves, losers of four in a row, also made a trade, shipping Brian Cardinal to the New York Knicks in exchange for the well-travelled Darko Milicic.

Minnesota, led by Al Jefferson's 18 points, placed five players in double figures. Ryan Gomes scored 16 points, Jonny Flynn added 15, and Kevin Love notched his 24th double-double (13 points and 13 rebounds) of the season.

Jamison learned of the news right before the game started. Despite having his name tossed around in trade rumors for the last few months, with the intensity of the rumors gaining steam in recent days, Jamison showed up at Verizon Center ready to play. However, he left the arena as the game was getting underway. He did not comment.

The Timberwolves jumped out to an early 20-8 lead and looked as though they might take advantage of the Wizards, who barely had time to get to know their new teammates.

However, with McGee leading the way with eight points in the third quarter, Washington outscored the Timberwolves 34-21 to take an 11-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Minnesota took advantage of sloppy play by the Wizard at the start of the fourth quarter, beginning the quarter on a 16-1 run to take a 91-87 lead on Ramon Sessions fade away jumper with 6:18 left to play.

Shortly thereafter, McGee tied the game on a layup. Miller followed that with a 3-pointer to give Washington a 94-91 lead. This was part of a 15-2 Washington run -- one that featured a triumvirate of 3-pointer from Miller that enabled the Wizards to put the game out of reach before a generously announced crowd of 13,143.

"I picked my spots and fortunately I made a few," Miller said "I got aggressive there for a little bit when the game got down the stretch. The ball was popping tonight and we played hard. . We got on the floor for loose balls. We're going to have to do that if we are going to win games. We played hard, and that was good. But we've got Denver on Friday. That's going to be a test for us."

The Wizards were forced to tear up their roster after a disappointing start. Expected to be a playoff team at the start of the season, things have gone downhill almost from the start. And things hit rock bottom when Arenas brought handguns into the locker room. He now awaits sentencing for the felony next month.

"Obviously, if you had told me coming into this season that this was the situation that I would be in, or that this is the team that I would be on I would have looked at you like you were crazy," Miller said. "I came into the situation with a lot of expectations. Sometimes expectations are tough to deal with. But that's what the NBA is all about - you move on. It's part of the NBA. If there are expectations and you don't deliver on those expectations you get moved."
