Young Wizards fan cries as they lose to the 76ers (video)

Tensions are high among the Wizards.

Nothing will exasperate those problems like a 109-102 loss to lowly 76ers. That dropped Washington to 2-8.

I’m not sure that’s what has this young fan so down, but his mood sure fits the Wizards’ results:

If its upcoming home stand – hosting the Knicks, Heat and Suns – doesn’t get Washington on track, it could be a long season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo dribbles behind his back, Mike Muscala keeps up just enough to get dunked on (video)

Mike Muscala started for an injured Dwight Howard last night, and though the Hawks beat the Bucks 107-100, one moment didn’t go so well for Atlanta’s replacement starting center.

Giannis Antetokounmpo dribbled behind his back and got Muscala turned all around. To his credit, Muscala recovered well. But he still got dunked on by the Greek Freak.

Chris Paul steals ball from Mike Conley, who had turned his head to talk to ref (video)

Chris Paul is so shrewd, he outsmarted the usually heady Mike Conley.

Though the Grizzlies went on to beat the Clippers, Paul made a heck of a play by grabbing the ball from Conley, who had turned away to talk to a referee. To top it off, Paul then drew a shooting foul from a frustrated Conley while playing 1-on-5.

Oh, and the sequence preceding that – Marc Gasol‘s nifty pass, Paul stealing it, Andrew Harrison blocking Paul’s layup, Paul fighting the loose ball from Conley and getting J.J. Redick a 3-pointer that nearly falls, Conley batting away the rebound from Paul – was wild as well.

This wasn’t even Russell Westbrook‘s best highlight from the Thunder’s win over the Rockets last night – which, wow.

I’m pretty sure, when the Cavaliers visited the White House, President Barack Obama called Cavs general manager David Griffin “David Griffith.”

So, the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo was always going to present a stiffer challenge, even for our basketball-savvy president.

Indeed:

At least it wasn’t the worst attempt by a Chicagoan.
