Wizards

The Wizards only had 14 turnovers in the opener which was a significant improvement over how they played in that area during the preseason.
The casual NBA fan had likely never heard of James Ennis prior to last night.
The Wizards couldn't guard anybody for the Heat in the fourth quarter in a leaky defensive performance that looked a lot like last season's opener in Detroit.
