Game in a nutshell: The Wizards (29-53) came out flat and got steam-rolled in the first quarter as the Bulls (45-37) opened with a 10-0 run and led by as many as 21 points.
It doesn't matter if the Wizards are using their starters or mostly reserves. The results on the road are the same: High turnovers equal losses.
Maybe Nene’s words had an impact, or maybe not, but the Wizards gave a better effort in Monday’s 106-101 loss at the Brooklyn Nets.
Game in a nutshell: With the stars on both sides sitting, except PG John Wall, the Wizards jumped out to a 30-13 lead.
