"Very disappointed," a frustrated Wizards' coach Randy Wittman said after a 104-88 loss at Phoenix Monday night. Wittman saw his ball club revert to bad habits and it cost them, as the Wizards closed out their five-game road trip with a 2-3 record.
"We became selfish," Wittman said as the Wizards record dropped to 7-25. "We didn't share the ball and we tried to do everything one on one, and a good team like Pheonix is going to take that away from you. That's all it was. I mean, I am not going to put up with that," Wittman said.
The Wizards led 55-54 early in the second half before it all unraveled as Phoenix went on a 31-6 run to blow the game open.
"We go on a spree of the most selfish basketball I have seen since I have taken over." Wittman said. "Ive got to find the right people to play the right way because I am not letting that slip back in."
A team goes on a 31-6 run? Thats inexcusable, Wall said. We stopped playing as a team."
