Wizards Vs. Nuggets: John Wall, Washington Trail 64-45 At Halftime

There's that post-double overtime loss hangover. Or maybe the Nuggets are just better than the Clippers, which is true. Whatever it is, the Wizards trail Denver by a score of 64-45 at halftime on Friday night. This game feels over already. It has for some time, actually.

John Wall has been aggressive offensively, and has 13 points. His 9-for-9 foray from the free throw line made up for his 2-for-7 mark from the field.

Nick Young has struggled to find his stroke in his return, missing six of his first eight shots in 17 minutes. He might just be a little too eager, drawing back iron on his early attempts. JaVale McGee has also struggled, continuing to puzzle with his desire to lead the fast break when he should be finding John Wall or even Jordan Crawford in transition once he gets possession.

Al Harrington continues his mini-rampage for Denver since George Karl handed him a DNP-CD in Miamia three games ago. He has 11 points off the bench. Chris Andersen has been at his Birdman best with five points, six rebounds and five blocks. McGee might be jealous of those five blocks. That's a lot of blocks.

A second half comeback seems unlikely at this point. But not impossible! We shall see.
