Rejuvenated Blatche helps Wizards snap Bulls' winning streak


By Rich Dubroff, for NBA.com
Posted Tuesday February 23, 2010 12:11AM

WASHINGTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- These can't be the same Washington Wizards.

No Antawn Jamison. No Caron Butler. The go-to-guy is Andray Blatche.

The new-look Wizards improved to 3-1 since the trades of Jamison and Butler, breaking the four-game winning streak of the Chicago Bulls on Monday night with a 101-95 win.

The Bulls (29-27), looking to equal a season-high five-game run, sprinted to a 12-point lead after Washington lost Josh Howard to a sprained left knee.

Howard collided with Chicago's Flip Murray late in the fourth quarter. The Wizards say they'll know more about the knee on Tuesday.

Howard was the most well-known player acquired in the deals, but since then, it's been Blatche who's shown the most.

He's averaged a cool 25 points in the four games since the trades, and he's feeling his oats.

"I just feel like we have a group of guys that's on the same mission, that's working hard and winning," Blatche said. "I feel like a leader."

Blatche has been with Washington (20-34) longer than any active player. He's 23, but in his fifth season. He's been criticized by coaches and teammates for immaturity, but now it's all different for him.

"He has a more serious approach to the game, both before the game, during the game and after the game," Washington coach Flip Saunders said.

The difference has been noted by players near and far.

Al Thornton, who arrived last week from the Los Angeles Clippers, had seen him play a few times, and now he's played three games with him.

"I didn't know he was that good," Thornton said. "I knew he was talented and had a world of potential. He's a player. I think he'll be an All-Star."

Derrick Rose noticed the difference, too -- in both Blatche and the Wizards.

"They are a new team," Rose said. "They are playing hard. They are pushing the ball. They know Blatche is their man, so they're going to him."

Chicago came into the game on a roll. They'd won four straight, and 15 of 21. They were looking to go four games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2006-07 season.

It looked likely until the third quarter. Washington outscored Chicago 31-16 -- including a six-minute stretch in which the Wizards scored 14 straight points.

"We were in a slump, and they came out and jumped on us," Rose said. "It's just hard getting it back with a team like that."

Both teams made trades last week. The Bulls are integrating Hakim Warrick and Murray into the lineup. The Wizards have Howard, Thornton, James Singleton and Quinton Ross.

Chicago was coming off a nearly perfect game on Saturday. The Bulls humiliated Philadelphia 122-90, committing just four turnovers -- fewest in team history.

On Monday, it was not only Blatche, but Thornton (17 points), Randy Foye (16 points) and Singleton, who had a season-high nine rebounds.

"We've played our best four games the last four games," Saunders said. "The new guys are playing hard. Our players have more of a sense of urgency."

Washington is still far out of playoff contention. They began play 7 1/2 games out of the final playoff slot in the East. On the other hand, the Bulls are in the sixth spot, but didn't play like it.

"I felt in the third quarter we were terrible," Chicago coach Vinny Del Negro said. "We had too many turnovers, and the Wizards really pushed the fastbreak on us and got some easy baskets."

Rose led the Bulls with 22 points -- including a late nine that helped cut a 13-point deficit with 5:25 to a single point with 1:55 left.

"No way we should have lost this game tonight," Rose said.

Murray had 16 for the Bulls, while Warrick added 12.

Blatche not only had his 25 points -- giving him 100 in the four games since the trades -- but hit all nine of his free throws and had 11 rebounds.

"His mindset has changed, and it's not just because those guys aren't here," Saunders said. "He's seen what we've done with our team."

The veteran coach has never been part of an in-season rebuilding project before, and he admitted he was surprised how quickly his new players have taken to it.

"Am I surprised how well they're playing, being together for a week? Yeah, I am surprised," Saunders said. "I think they understand that if they play well and do good things, good things happen."
