Coach Randy Wittman had some interesting thoughts on the Wizards defense following the 125-118 double overtime loss.
"We took some shortcuts," Wittman said of the defense.
In a season of plenty of firsts for the Wizards, and they were on the verge of accomplishing another Wednesday night by getting their first win vs. the San Antonio Spurs in nine years.
Just when it looked like the Wizards didn't have a chance, John Wall gets the steal and layup to force double overtime against the Spurs.
John Wall created another highlight against the Spurs with a steal -- he gets in a passing lane and picks it off before feeding John Wall on a 2-on-1 for a thunderous dunk.
John Wall has been one of the best players in the league at creating turnovers and took this errant Tony Parker pass for a high-flying dunk midway through the first quarter.
