Wizards vs AtlantaPosted on December 29, 2011
We missed a lot of shots early - Atlanta made a lot of their shots early - we were in a big hole and played the entire game trying to claw back. Atlanta hit a bunch of three point shots early and we couldn't answer. We played hard - and our youth was exposed as every time we got a sniff of run; we turned the ball over or missed uncontested shots close in. Atlanta is a playoff team and a vet team; the oldest team in the NBA; and they have lots of talent. They met every run by the Wizards and deserved the win. They shoot the ball very well and they rebound and transition at a quick pace; this is a very good team - with an identity. We must get more out of our front line in terms of defense; rebounding and scoring. And cutting turn overs will help a lot as well. We search for a team identity still. A work in progress, indeed. Onward to next road game on Friday. Thank you.
