CSN Washington dot com. Whitman's -- was one hit out of their last three -- and dad. Washington jumped on top early midway through the first Trevor -- sinks a triple but the team only scored three points in the final six minutes of the quarter. And led by two after one in the second. You -- turnovers and good ball movement Bradley deal. With the slam. And that tied the game at -- he's very. Then later in the second Jack with a two point lead this time it's a Wizards turnover on the surface fast break. Mo Williams throws up the Alley -- to Gordon sort of brings it down to Washington led by two at the break -- We jumped in the fourth was it's down to -- newly acquired Shaun Livingston. Two big. And too strong. That's the -- Score tied at 65 later in the quarter down five -- two of twenty points -- Jordan Crawford of the lead is cut to worry about another fourth quarter collapse. We'll be the Wizards Achilles heel off the pick and roll Paul Millsap hit the -- today Wizards remained winless as they fall 83. Just 76 and for more we head down and write better. To check in with personnel our press our John Holland Nene just. It seemed to get in there and help this team out. But clearly they're the two best players on the team when you think about this basketball team now 018 for the second straight year in a row. Or Randy Wittman is not making any excuses about this team getting off to such a poor start beginning of the game things are going well start on 110 run led by as many as thirteen. But the things that are killing the Wizards down the stretch. Is the hustle when you think about it the Utah Jazz in the fourth quarter alone. Had nine offensive rebounds they just wanted it more they're heading back to the West Coast splitting their four game East Coast trip afterwards I ask Randy Wittman. If not having wall and Nene. Is an excuse. -- -- way well that's that's not an excuse you know and I'm Laura could show short I don't mean to me on disrespect your question. That's an excuse you know we got enough here to win games. We do we got to believe that. Eight and I've got to help them believe in themselves. Right now we're long confidence right now from an offensive stand -- -- after defensively. -- compete and I were defended. And now we gotta give it to that other end room believe -- you know we're gonna execute. And induced things it's necessary to score. Enough points to win the game. You're -- -- coach right there -- talking about the confidence on the offensive side of the ball. It's clearly shaken with this bunch not knowing night in and night out. Cool he's going to be able to rely on that's the reason why he changed the starting lineup tonight. It didn't work. Again they have matched their worst start in franchise history of 18 they get right back daddy and Jill nobody in the NBA -- -- for the Wizards still face the Indiana -- and Roy Hibbert. Monday night. Hey Chris -- obviously you're along for the ride last year when man that validates -- as well what's the difference do you yes I bullets at -- but the difference of women's team. And last year seem an obvious that the confidence -- got to be similar but what do you see the differences being. I think the difference is these guys in this locker room I think this is a more united locker room. There was a lot of division last year you got to remember coming off a lock out. Where guys had to come together and a short amount of time to go out and play games but again. There is no excuse. For boxing out doing the little things late in the game to win you've got your crowd behind you for the entire game. It's not -- critical stops and being able to make listen -- even said it we had a two foot. Air ball lay up tonight. That is clearly unacceptable this team needs to get a win jail and they need to get away and fast. Yeah they certainly do it if not for anyone else's sake for your cars for X well. And Utley. Opposite effect you -- Leno at one Monday I putted regular rights to CSN Washington dot com.
