Washington Wizards Game 53 Postgame Audio: Wittman, Wall, Beal & more

The Washington Wizards survived a late scare but held on to defeat the Denver Nuggets, 119-113, at Verizon Center Friday night. Seven Wizards, led by Bradley Beal and Emeka Okafor with 17 points apiece, hit double digits for the Wizards in what head coach Randy Wittman described as, “really a quality win for us in so many ways.”

“It was good to see us get back to playing our game,” Wittman said. “Everybody contributed. I stick Garrett Temple in there the last minute of the third quarter, and he comes up with three big points—picks up that shot in the corner, gets fouled and knocks down the free throw. Everybody came in and really contributed for us.”

Beal described the feeling of the Wizards as constant underdogs, even at home. “I think sometimes when we play so-called better teams, we feel as though we have something to prove. I think we come out harder, that much harder and just compete.”
