Although several players have had their issues on the offensive end -- John Wall's turnovers, Bradley Beal's mid-range shot, Trevor Ariza's three-point shot -- the problem is simply 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.
The confidence that has been missing from Jan Vesely, who was drafted sixth overall three years ago, appeared for the 15 minutes that he lasted.
This is a simple statistical look at two players Wizards fans have monitored this season. One who plays for the team, Trevor Ariza, and one who never did, Kendall Marshall.
Even in their only road victory in the past week, the Wizards didn't do much to impress coach Randy Wittman.
