WASHINGTON–The Washington Wizards won their fifth straight home game for the first time since 2008 as they defeat the Chicago Bulls 86-73. The Wizards have won seven of their last ten, largely because for the first time this season they’re fully healthy, and forward Nene had some words for all the early critics out there.
“I remember like in the beginning everybody say we sucks…now we going to shut up people mouth, that’s what we going to do.”
And they’re doing it as they defeat another likely playoff bound team. This time it was done by defense as they held the Bulls to only 29 second half points.
“Couldn’t be any more proud of these guys,” Head Coach Randy Wittman said about the defense. “These guys defensively tonight were in tune. That’s what won the game.”
Wittman said he switched something defensively at the half, but wouldn’t divulge what.
“I think right now we just trusting eachother,” Wizards guard John Wall said.
Wall added, “We also know our statement as our team is got to do it on the defensive end and we’ve been doing that lately.”
Listen here to what Randy Wittman, Nene, John Wall, Jordan Crawford & Martell Webster had to say following the win.
