Again. And again and again. Again.Posted on March 30, 2012
4 games lost in the final moments to play off teams in the last 7 days. We shoot a better percentage. We have more assist and rebounds. But we turn the ball over more - and we go 16 for 25 from the foul line while the Pacers go 25 for 32. A 9 point differential from the free throw line - we lose by 4. Ball game. We need to go to the hoop more and draw more fouls, and hit those shots. Every point matters in close games. Even though we are making progress; we must get over this hump of losing in the last few moments; this is now a barrier to our development and we must focus on breaking through this season. It will show progress, atop of the improved play we are seeing in our defensive end and our team unity and chemistry. We are close - but it is time now to get some wins to gain some confidence in ourselves. Thanks also to our Wizards fans for sending me some emails during the game as well last night. I appreciate your passion and concerns and enthusiasm. Another game - back to back tonight at home. See you at the game. We expect a nice big home crowd this evening. Thank you.
