What a pleasant surprise of a season...these last few comebacks wins have had a playoff/competitive feel to them where the Wizards appear to be the more confident team and they have actually been executing down the stretch of games.

My biggest Brooks heap of praise is in regards to his plays out of timeouts....a billion times better than watching Randy fumble with the clipboard for 20 seconds. smokin.gif

I wish we could get Wall and Beal some rest down the stretch or start these damn games off better. Overcoming 20 point deficits to some subpar teams gotta be draining

It's a bad loss, there's no way around it.  All this talk about the Wizards showing "championship composure" on this road trip ignored that they played down the entire time.  

 

Perhaps we're starting to see the toll of all those minutes the starters have logged so far. 

 

 

With the race for the top 4 spots in the East heating up, we can't afford to drop more of these winnable games - especially with that last 5 game road trip against Cleveland, LA, Utah, and Golden State coming up.

The good thing to end the season playing CLE/GS is that they might be resting players/starters and more concerned about rest than picking up a late season game for seeding that the Wizards may have a greater interest in obtaining.

Hope they keep pounding the Bulls and get the starters some rest.

Plan A for the offseason, get rid of Gortat. He's showing his age the last several games, he don't have the foot speed or athleticism for today's NBA

We gotta figure something out with this playing style real soon cuz the Raptors are on our heels and we could wind up sliding to 4th in no time

tired.gif Game went downhill after that Jennings foul/double technical.


Beal was taking wayyyyyyyyyy too many step back foot on the line two pointers and the entire offense just wasn't getting quality looks.

50 wins? Not looking so hot right about now smh.

Lack of rebounding killed this team. What's Gortat doing if the p 'n' r isn't working? Also, need a milk carton for Otto post-All Star break. Wall/Beal can only do so much. They need the rest of the starters to get their acts together. I also wonder about the team being worn down due to heavy minutes being played? Last night was SO frustrating.

the rebounding margin at half time was something like 16 to 31....what were we doing.

lot of this goes on Gortat, he isn't physical enough nor swift of foot to stop those Celtics front line players. When Jason Smith played he was effective because he at least has energy and isn't plodding on offense.

To the guy mentioning Beal's step back two's that's a result of Avery Bradley just harassing him on defense. He couldn't shake him at all and the Celtics switched off screens very well forcing tough shots.

Bulls blew a 16/17 point 4th quarter lead against the Raptors.... mean.gif



Might stroll by the game tonight, but losing 4 out of 5 after losing 4 out of the previous 22 (even though they won a few games they had no business winning) is making 50 wins look farrrrrrrrrrrr and distant.
