5 must-see moments from Wizards' loss to Utah Jazz

5 must-see moments from Wizards' loss to Utah Jazz

Here are five plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 102-92 loss to the Utah Jazz on Sunday evening at the Verizon Center that are worth revisiting...

1. For a dud of a game that saw the Wizards score just 39 points in the first half, Sunday sure had a lot of highlights. Both sides had their moments, including the Wizards despite an overall disappointing performance.

John Wall had another solid game with 23 points, 11 assists and four steals. He had five assists in the first quarter for the sixth straight game. One of his assists came on this play that was highlighted by a deadly crossover before he dished it to Marcin Gortat:

2. Most of these highlights are of the Wizards, but this one by Jazz All-Star Gordon Hayward deserves another look. The other night Hayward posterized Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker in the same game against the Bucks. On this play he did it to Bojan Bogdanovic:

3. Here is the highlight of the night. It's actually two plays by Wall, but they happened back-to-back. First he got a nice layup after another lethal crossover. Then, he threw down a vicious alley-oop following a steal on the next play:

4. Here are two more from Wall. The first is another dunk on the fastbreak, this a left-handed slam:

And this one is a bit of an honorable mention, given it didn't count. Wall stuffed Hayward against the backboard after the whistle:

5. Back to Bogdanovic. He had his best game as a Wizard so far with 15 points, including three three-pointers. This one was from way far out. Bogdanovic beat the clock at the end of the third quarter with a tough shot in traffic from about 35 feet away from the basket:

Those plays were nice, but it just wasn't the Wizards' night, as evidenced by Markieff Morris fouling out and then getting ejected on the same play:

And Bradley Beal's facial expression on this Rudy Gobert free throw attempt pretty much summed it all up:

Troubling video of ex-NBA star Delonte West leads to suspension of Prince George's police officer

A Prince George's police officer was suspended after a troubling video emerged of his interaction with former NBA player and Eleanor Roosevelt alum Delonte West handcuffed after an alleged altercation.

The disturbing video showed West handcuffed on a sidewalk after getting involved in a physical conflict with a civilian. The off-screen officer was asking West questions on what happened to the events leading to him roughed up on the side of the road. West alleges that he was approached by a man with a gun. 

Prince George's police department announced that the video was filmed by a member of their department, leading to the officer's suspension. 

"Today at 12:15 pm, we learned the video that is currently on social media depicting the male in handcuffs was recorded by a Prince George’s County Police officer. The circumstances surrounding the recording and release of that video are now the subject of an internal investigation. That officer is now suspended pending the outcome of this investigation," the department said in a release.

Another disturbing video from a bystander shows the fight between the presumed West and another unidentified man. One man was standing over the other and continuously stomping on what appears to be West.

Meanwhile, West's former teammates and coaches took to social media to express their concerns.

West played eight years in the NBA across four franchises. He played his college ball at Saint Joseph's where he was teammates with Jameer Nelson and was coached by Phil Martelli.
