So, how did the first day of tournament play treat the former Golden Eagles?

I already used all the good pictures of Vander from Summer League.

Washington 86, Utah 78 - The Wizards jumped out to a lead early in this game, leading the Jazz 33-18 after the first period came to a close.  They were able to maintain their advantage for most of the contest, right up until the start of the fourth quarter.  Utah blitzed Washington then, running off 13 straight points to turn it into a three point game with just under five and a half minutes to play.  The Wizards answered with six straight of their own to reassert control of the game, and a pair of Kelly Oubre free throws with 96 seconds left essentially locked it up for Washington.

Jamil Wilson saw 15 minutes of reserve action in this one.  He scored 10 points on 4-8 shooting, including hitting half of his four attempts from three-point range.  Wilson snagged two rebounds and added a steal to the Wizards' victory.

Dallas 88, Los Angeles Lakers 86 - The Mavericks had a 10 point lead after 1 and a 12 point lead at the half.  Los Angeles wasn't going away easily, though, and they had the game tied with 6:19 left to play on a free throw from Jabari Brown.  The game winning play was made by Jeremy Tyler, who put back a Maalik Wayns miss to give Dallas the lead for good with 1.4 seconds to play.

Tyler had a game high 25 points to lead all players, while Brown's 19 was tops for the Lakers.

Dwight Buycks did not play for the Lakers in this game.

Chicago 91, Cleveland 73 - It was all Bulls, all the time in this game.  Well, almost.  The Cavaliers scored the first four points of the game, but Chicago closed the first period on a 10-2 to seize control of the game and they never really looked back.

Bobby Portis was great for the Bulls, scoring 16 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.  D.J. Seeley led the Cavs in scoring with 16 points.

While Portis was the main show here, Vander Blue had a nice game, too.  He tied for the game high in points with 16, although Blue's scoring was kind of inefficient.  He shot 5-13 in the game and missed both of his long range attempts.  He did make all six of his freebies, though, and he also snagged eight rebounds and dished three assists along with snaring a steal.
