It was last season, in an improbable overtime loss to the then-injury-depleted Boston Celtics at Verizon Center, that coach Randy Wittman tore into his team about not playing the right way.
Even though just about everything went wrong for the Wizards in Sunday's 101-93 loss to the Boston Celtics, they still were in position to win the game late in the fourth quarter.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman discussed Washington's loss to Boston, noting the team played as individuals.
"We're not going to beat anybody that way," Wittman said.
The Wizards trailed the Celtics by 25 points, and came back, threatening to take the game in the last minute.
After pulling within one, the Celtics continued ahead for the win.
