Game 26: Wizards @ Timberwolves

The Wizards returned to action Friday night in Minnesota vs the Timberwolves but came out flat and were never able to get into this game.  John Wall had an excellent first half scoring 22 points, however that production was off set by Ariza & Gortat being shut out in the first half.  By the time the team started getting their act together in the 2nd half it was too late to mount a comeback.  Bradley Beal went down in the fourth quarter in pain and had to be carried off the court.  Apparently he knocked knees with another player.  The Wizards have two more games remaining in 2013 with the opportunity to reach .500 before years end still alive.
