Instead of my usual takeaways -- that'll come after the Wizards play the Brooklyn Nets for the second time in a row Saturday -- let's look at what they must fix to turn things around after Friday'
Matchup: George Washington (13-4, 3-1 Atlantic 10) vs. George Mason (6-10, 1-3)
When: Saturday, 4:30 p.m.
Where: Smith Center
All of a sudden, those big wins vs. the Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs don't look quite as good.
So much for Paul Pierce facing off with Kevin Garnett for the first time since 2007.
No matter how unrealistic some might find Paul Pierce for believing that the Wizards could compete for a championship before coming here, he has them convinced them that they can.
