The Wizards played a very tough and physical game last evening, as expected, against the Bulls.
We didn't execute on a few key pre-game details such as moving the ball with pace to score 100 or more points, and getting to the free throw line and making our shots. The Bulls played their game, played tough interior defense and frankly provoked us into playing their style of grind it out basketball.
We should catch our breathe, move on and realize that despite us not playing our game, we lost this game by 3 points.
The crowd and fan support was world-class and most appreciated. The fans arrived on time, they roared from the National Anthem on, wore their T shirts in a united fashion, and truly were a part of a collective, strong and growing community.
Words can't express my enthusiasm for what I saw and experienced last night; we are all so grateful for your support and patience with us. Every player and coach on the team noted how loud and how passionate the atmosphere was last night. Thank you, and I look forward to a reprise on Sunday afternoon.
