It was just one of those nights for the Wizards where things were going right. They took an early lead, and they closed with an even bigger lead. The final score was 97-77 and the Wizards out-shot the Nets 44% to 35%.
The Wizards had five players in double-figures by the end of the night. Nick Young and Rashard Lewis led the way with 16 points each. JaVale McGee scored 15 points, Andray Blatche 14 points, and Hinrich 10 points. John Wall also looked good with the ball, contributing nine assists.
2010 third overall draft pick Derrick Favors tried to show up Wall tonight, but his team would come up short. The rookie had 12 points and six rebounds in the losing effort. Jordan Farmar and Brook Lopez each had 14 points for New Jersey.
The Wizards will try to build on this big win with a visit to the 12-21 Charlotte Bobcats tomorrow night. With momentum and confidence, the Wizards have a legitimate chance of doing the unthinkable: winning a road game.
