The first 20 minutes of Wednesday night’s Wizards-Heat game were about as dominant as 20 minutes in an NBA game can be. The Wizards — who recently scored 66 in an entire game against the Pacers — scored 64 points in that span. The Heat scored 30. The perpetually down-on-their-luck Wizards were running the two-time champs out of Verizon Center.
“I wasn’t paying attention [to the score] the whole [first] quarter,” Trevor Booker told our Michael Lee. “Then I looked up, and I was like, ‘Is that right?’ I really didn’t know. I had no clue we were whupping them like that. I was just playing.”
Of course, Booker also was responsible for one of the most memorable moments of that run.
If you missed that moment, here it is, via @Wiz_Spurtin. Booker also talked about the tone Washington set at the beginning of the game.
“We read some of the comments that they had said a couple days ago in the newspaper,” he told Lee. “But they didn’t scare us any.”
