Wizards would be wise to shut up and stop talking about physical play or the officials.
The only ones complaining about the officiating are wizards fans on the general board. The Wizards didn't call out the refs after the first game. That would be the Hawks. And Brooks even acknowledged that it was the Wizards fault that the Hawks went to the line 39 times, yet we're still the one getting jobbed so GTFO.
Wall told the media there was basically a no layups rule in effect and then Morris said this:
"Just see where he's at now," Morris said, according to The Washington Post, in response to Millsap's comments after Game 1. "I guess if that's MMA, then what we do next might be double MMA."
"They said we [were] wrestling so I guess they don't have a choice but to come out and play tougher," Morris told reporters at the Wizards' morning shootaround, according to The Post. "It is what is. We ain't going to stop our intensity because of what they say. We're going to keep playing as hard as possible and playoff basketball."
NBA TV reported that the league sent a memo to both clubs after that.
