Csnwashington.com. Steve but -- phils in the air have joined us now and a buck 62 point they're very productive. Christy I'm glad you mentioned that because. All things considered feel safe for the final outcome of this game can you not be happy with the Wizards performance tonight they're at their effort they gave it. Great effort obviously didn't get off to start they wanted to -- right around 20% in the first quarter couldn't buy a basket. On the other side you have Boston that was playing very well shooting the ball well in the first quarter affected me 50% of the best -- -- twelve made field goals. -- of them were assistant you can see Rondo -- -- -- to -- in the first quarter poor. Appears very active even their defense watching the -- with a good. In the right coverage. And leading the players getting open shots right there in Boston doing a great job. In the first quarter just that is needed in Cleveland they fell behind in fact by sixteen points just as they did in Cleveland. And just like the game in Ohio they came back this time they took the lead. And they coveted the lead for awhile in fact they had at two points. But went scoreless in the last 250 wanted -- talk about the play of your parents 62 points obviously you have to look at. Given the given -- they're open and Jordan Crawford combining for forty points. But they have some other way it's doing a great job as well what we've talked about the fact that you have to have. Of the inside place you've got to mix it up balls and still. They're very solid defense seemed to want to start moved them around. You can stretch the mountain Washington they would do that you solve this week with a bucket Pargo with some big baskets he had nine points four rebounds and forces so yeah I. I would say their spirits with outstanding. -- just unfortunately not quite enough. We noted that at half time the rebounding it was thirteen apiece Wizards outrebounded this team by eleven. You're right that's good news the play of Kevin Seraphin was outstanding. And as you guys mention you get John Wall back in this lineup the contribution of Nene. Kevin Seraphin tremendous tonight who knows what they can do they certainly had a terrific effort here this night against a former. Ball club. Still looking. Forward to just for the game Tuesday against the Celtics. What adjustments did you see from -- courtside band points that you think the Wizards have to make going into their next game. I think especially in the second half that you saw where they were doing -- much better job competing. With this Boston team that in my book was saying earlier in the game. The confidence can be a big part of a team's success so they have to take that feel and obviously they'll get a couple of days of practice but. Haven't Kevin there. Getting getting some inside backs in the still got to get some of those outside jumpers the fall for the -- that hurt them but then defensively. The way they stop this team. Boston only sat about 24% in that fourth quarter where they were trying to. Pull away from Washington so obviously they are doing much better things defensively in that fourth quarter -- got to look at that and make sure that. Transfers but we'll see how they play next week courts will have a game four here on Comcast sports that that's a Wednesday night tipped him up in Boston three days off for the Wizards and then the game Wednesday night.
