The surging Wizards don’t have one secret weapon. They have three.
Also, the Bulls gave up on the gifted Gafford at 22. He is playing so well largely because he is playing so simply. Without a single practice session with his new team, he just defends, fights for rebounding position, sets high picks and then rolls, fills a lane on the break or flashes to the hoop to make himself available for a pass. Yet, in theory per 36 minutes, he would be averaging 20.9 points, 11.9 rebounds and a second-in-NBA 3.8 blocks.
