The Washington Wizards no-showed in New Jersey on Friday night, and they were blown out by the Nets 110-98. While the Nets are a fellow lottery team, the Wizards were on the second night of a back-to-back and playing again without Nene and Trevor Booker in the frontcourt. New Jersey led by 20 points for much of the second half before a late run by the Wizards cut it to 12, but the game had long been decided.
Kevin Seraphin continues to produce on the inside, scoring 15 points and grabbing nine rebounds against the Nets front line. The only other Wizard to score more than Seraphin was John Wall, who finished with 18 points. His counterpart, Deron Williams, finished with 19 points but also added 13 assists. The Nets got easy buckets straight from the jump, and shot better than 55 percent from the floor on the evening.
Wounded and weary, the Wizards will now have the weekend off before playing in Charlotte on Monday against the Bobcats.
