The Washington Wizards have struggled mightily over the past month, losing 10 of their last 14 games in a stretch that their offense has been very stagnant.
Head coach Randy Wittman is looking to jump start their scoring by trying to improve on end-of-quarter efficiency. Usually, point guard John Wall takes the ball and tries to make something happen before the clock expires, but Wittman wants the offense to be more free-flowing in those situations.
“Just talking to coach about basically too many isos and not getting good shots out of them,” Wall said. “And then our percentage, even when we got good shots, is low so [we decided to] just get more movement and just try to get more movement and a better shot to get our percentage up. I was getting good shots but wasn’t making them. We were getting like 15 percent, I think, and we talked about it and decided to throw together a couple plays that gives us better movement and the opportunity to be more aggressive without guys just standing still.”Back to the Washington Wizards Newsfeed
