Wizards fall to Magic 89-80; 6 point 2nd Quarter!

The Wizards were down 46-30 at the half after a second quarter in which the Magic held them to only 6 points.  I missed the the first half of the game but apparently 6 points is a new franchise record for fewest points in a quarter.  I caught the second half of the game and I thought the Wizards battledback  behind a strong 3rd quarter from Caron Butler.  He scored a career high 21 points from 8 of 10 from the field in the 3rd quarter alone.  Butler finished with a game-high of 29 points.  Turkoglu led the way for the Magic with 22.  

The Wizards played well the second half, but could have used a little better effort from somebody besides Caron.  McGee didn’t play a single minute the entire game.  I would like to see him get more minutes because I don’t see how bench-warming helps develop a player.  He needs to get out there and play through mistakes.  The Wizards really don’t have anything to lose at this point by letting their young guys get some minutes.  Oh well, they move to 7-26 overall.

Too bad they couldn’t extend their win streak to 2 games, but at least they beat crybaby LeBron.  He definitely traveled!
