San Antonio led by as much as 20 in the second quarter, but very nearly fell victim to a comeback by Washington. After cutting the deficit to just five points, the Wizards scored two quick layups to come within one in the fourth quarter. Washington had the chance to take the lead after recovering a blocked shot, but failed to capitalize. The Spurs then expanded the lead to three after Jaron Blossomgame put back a Lonnie Walker miss. With just 6.3 seconds remaining, Washington was unable to hit a 3-pointer to tie, and San Antonio walked away victorious after Blossomgame knocked down a pair of free-throws.

We’re the best team in baseball four out of five days, and then I come out and do that. It just sucks.

With the loss, Gray’s record dipped to 5-6. One night after getting back into a Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey tie for first place in the American League East with the Red Sox, the Yankees fell back one game.

I’ve never been just a single focal point of an offense since I’ve been in college, Allen said during his introductory news conference Wednesday. I know how to play with other talented guys. I know how to play with other really good guys and that’s what you’re going to have to do in the NBA, especially coming in as a rookie and coming into a team who’s already a playoff team.

Allen had to adapt his game over four seasons with the Blue Devils as he adjusted to the influx of one-and-done prospects. Nine different teammates were first round NBA draft picks and four others were Keenan Robinson Jersey second-rounders.

The turnover opened the door for Allen to go from being a drive-and-shoot scorer who averaged 21.6 points as a sophomore to a capable defender, playmaker and ball handler as a senior.

His goal is to improve in each of those areas as an NBA rookie, a goal shared by Jazz coaches and management.

Allen was quick to note that his assist rate improved to a career-high 4.6 per game by his senior season. He also offered a spark as an outside shooter who could hit contested 3s, finishing with a 37 percent average from the perimeter in his final year.
