Arenas Pulls A Pierce

The Wizards blew a chance to beat the Nets, and something all too familiar was the reason for it...
For some strange reason, Washington spread the court and gave the ball to Arenas, who has struggled with his shooting all season, hitting only 33 percent from the field.

Arenas dribbled the ball about 20 feet from the basket as Wright waited for him to make his move. He didn't get going until there were about 7 seconds left and he quickly had nowhere to go. His off-balance shot hit nothing, leaving him 7-of-17 from the field.
