Blatche's near triple-double sparks Wizards past Nets


By John N. Mitchell, for NBA.com

WASHINGTON (NBA.com exclusive) - -- When teams are as bad as the Washington Wizards and the New Jersey Nets have been this season, it isn't surprising to see a coach try new wrinkles moving forward.

Wizards coach Flip Saunders has been trying to find ways to inject life into a sluggish offense for weeks, and in a 109-99 victory over the New Jersey Nets he finally got a chance to see the fruits of his labor.

"We went to a two-guard offense to take some pressure off our point and try to initiate the offense a little more quickly," Saunders said after the Wizards amassed 28 assists, said. We've been playing pretty well, just moving the ball and because of the way the offense works people should have a tougher time loading up on Andray (Blatche) and if they do, I think he's got a better understanding of where people are going to be in order to have some quick outlets and quick assists." I

t wasn't long ago that Blatche was in the dog house after refusing to re-enter a game back on March 23, an overtime loss to Charlotte that came during the height of the teams' recently ended franchise-worst 16-game losing streak.

Last night, though, Blatche led the Wizards (24-53) with one of the best games of his career. Blatche led the Wizards with 20 points and handed out a career-high 13 assists -- one more than the Nets did as a team. In fact, Blatche would have tallied the first triple double of his career had he been able to pull down one more rebound.

Blatche was just one of the bright spots for the Wizards, who came into last nights' game with the second worst record in the Eastern Conference. Six Washington players finished with double-figures Mike Miler finished with 17 point and pulled down a season-high 13 rebounds. Nick Young and Shaun Livingston each scored 16 points, and Livingston, who has played particularly well lately, finished with a team-high eight assists.

Cartier Martin, one of two Wizards signed to 10-day contracts at the end of the March, added 16 points, and JaVale McGee came off the bench to score 14 for Washington.

The Wizards win marked the end of their franchise-record nine-game losing streak, giving them their first win at Verizon Center since they defeated Chicago on Feb. 22. "A lot in this league is who you play," Saunders said. "Our guys have played really hard this last month and we've had opportunities in the fourth quarter and we haven't come up with anything so you like to see them have some success and pull things out in the fourth quarter to reinforce what they've been doing. They've been receptive of the new offense. They've been working to work with that offense and I think you see some benefits that have come with it."

New Jersey (11-67) never led in the game and trailed by 18 points with just over three minutes to play in the third quarter. The Nets did cut the lead to 100-94 with 2:16 left in the game. However, in falling behind by such a large amount it was understandable that the Nets -- by far the worst team in the league -- didn't have enough in reserve to pull off the comeback. "Unfortunately we did not come with the same intensity we had been playing with right from the start," New Jersey coach Kiki Vandeweghe said. " They jumped on us. They have some guys, Sean Livingston and Cartier Martin. Those guys are playing for their lives and they played hard tonight. It was a combination of things. We fought back and unfortunately fighting back out of a big hole sometimes you run out of juice." Winners of four of six games going into last night's game, the Nets got 22 points apiece out of Brook Lopez and Devin Harris. Those two, however, were the only starters to reach double figures in scoring. Reserves Terrence Williams and Chris Douglas-Roberts had 15 and 14 points, respectively. Now that they have 11 victories and are no longer besieged with questions about the possibility of going down as the worst team in league history -- that honor still belongs to the 9-73 Sixers from 1972-73 -- the Nets are using the remainder of their season to look ahead and build for the future. "We just want to get better every game," Lopez said. "We're coming off a very good stretch but we kind of laid an egg tonight we're just trying to keep it grooving and I think we're doing that. "Tonight, we thought this was a winnable game coming in," Lopez continued. "We knew what we had to do and we honestly thought we had a good chance. We fell back early and made a strong push and we couldn't finish. But we stayed in it and we fought. Earlier in the season we wouldn't have done that."
