Kuzma was up against BI and Hart from his Lakers days.

Tonight we got demolished, but Chicago, Cleveland, Indy, Boston, and Miami lost. Very small silver lining after that game.

Bertans is has displaced Westbrook as my least favorite Wizard in recent memory. That dude is scum.

Well 15 games in or so 15 to 20 games other teams have the scouting report on the Wizards now

I am not too concerned about this because I think a lot of it has to do with Dinwiddie and Bradley just not really meshing well together

Can't blame Wes Jr for a loss like this. The team is starting 3 guys who were coming off the bench last season for other teams, and a guy coming off a major injury. Not Wes' fault in the least bit...he's making chicken salad out of chicken shhhh....

Wes took accountability last game saying he got outcoached and let the team down.

Tonight, his players let him down. It was a disgusting display of carelessness, no fire, no purpose.

Makes me wonder who if his mentors did this... letting them play through the problem is a Phil Jackson kind of move

It’s just one loss. Not a big deal. Embarrassing nights happen.

This is a solid team but still lacking a true difference maker.

One bad loss to a bad team does not mean doom but we really need two things. We need to move bertans for anything and get Rui and Bryant back in the line up for offence.

Do you still hate kuzma as much as you used to?

I respect your opinion and I wonder where do you think they need to add that difference maker because I know you check game stats in plus minus

In a loss like this there's enough blame to go around, but you know, this is a loss that's been some time in the making.

Perhaps a bit of a false sense of security crept in because Washington managed to win some of these games but there's a clear pattern emerging here and it's coming at exactly the wrong time for a team that's not going to get a lot of time to get structured work in over the next three weeks.

The starting lineup is a mess, the half-court offense is a complete disaster and some of the guys we're counting on to produce just aren't holding up their end of the bargain.

You've got Beal playing perhaps his worst season as a pro on offense, Bertans doing a Mahinmi impression and whatever Gafford was showing to earn the organizations trust just isn't showing up on the court.

It doesn't help that there's practically no synergy between Dinwiddie and Beal these two are like oil and water out there and it hurts the team because we are counting on Spencer to be one of the engines of this thing.

This 20 game stretch the Wizards have embarked on is going to make or break the season and the Wizards are trending in exactly the wrong direction with their play.

The coach is good. The talent is sufficient and I THINK they will figure it out.


I think the next 10 games and tell the tale of how the season will play out

Yup, the race is a long one and every team has had time to shake the cobwebs off, a recalibration in the NBA is underway.

We are currently shooting 32.1% from 3. Only 3 teams are worse (OKC, Houston, Detroit). :(
