Andre Miller has quiet but steady Wizards debut
The running play-by-play of the Wizards’ 94-93 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night doesn’t fairly explain the value of Andre Miller’s first important play with his new team. It simply reads: “Austin Rivers shooting foul (Andre Miller draws foul).”
It leaves out how Trevor Booker kicked the ball out to Miller with little time to operate, how the shot clock was about to expire when Miller tried a back-to-front between-the-legs dribble, nearly lost the ball and still had the wherewithal to notice that Rivers had was playing him too tightly. Miller jumped, threw the ball toward the rim and coerced the official into blowing a whistle that resulted in two free throws — and subsequently, two points – with less than a second remaining on the shot clock.
