Total Team Win and Effort

Posted on April 28, 2014 by Ted Leonsis

The Wizards won yesterday to take a 3 to 1 lead over the Chicago Bulls in this NBA playoff series.

It took a total team effort after having to play with Nene at home for this one game. We lost Nene with 8 minutes left in game 3 and now for all of game 4. He will be back on Tuesday in Chicago for game 5.


Our team took off on a 14 point run to open the game. We were up 14 to 0 and I saw a box score I had never seen before. It read - Wizards shooting percentage :88 percent. Bulls shooting percentage :00 percent.

The Bulls are a tough and physical team, and they are very ornery and determined. I am pleased that we responded well. Didn't show frustration with the officiating and played a calm and steady four quarters , with 4 players scoring in double figures.

We also protected the ball well and only made 6 turn overs to Chicago's 16 turnovers.

As a note of caution, another one of our teams once had a 3 to 1 lead in a series and we got closed out 4 to 3. We must stay diligent, focused and be determined to win game 5 on the road on Tuesday, game time is 800 pm EST.
