Brooklyn Nets


This isn't exactly what coach Randy Wittman had in mind when he said he wanted his team to play better defense.


Only two teams have beaten the Brooklyn Nets since Feb. 27, and one was the Wizards who pulled out a 101-94 victory at Verizon Center.


Looking back at Tuesday's loss at the Sacramento Kings, it only was a matter of time that the Wizards' lack of shooting touch caught up with them.


The formality of signing Drew Gooden, who had his second 10-day contract with the Wizards expire before Tuesday's game at the Sacramento Kings, is complete.
