I’m going to start referring to the Washington Wizards as the Bullets on my blog, because the name never should have been changed. I’ll continue to refer to the team as the Wizards on Examiner.com and Guysnation.com, but here on my blog they will be the Bullets.
John Wall had 19 points and a career high 15 assists, and Nick Young scored 22 of his 25 points in the second half to lead the Bullets to a 108-101 victory over the Utah Jazz Monday at Verizon Center.
The Bullets led almost the entire second half as their athleticism was enough to get by the discipline and defense of Utah. Washington raised its home record to 12-8 in front of an announced crowd of 14,925. The Bullets are winless in 19 games on the road.
The Bullets pulled away from the Jazz in the third quarter during a 21-8 run. Wall, the number one pick in the NBA draft last summer, threw an alley oop pass to Javale McGee who threw down a windmill dunk with his right hand. McGee’s free throw gave Washington a 62-55 lead.
