Coach-Scott Brooks

A-. Scott Brooks has made some pivotal changes for the team. He inserted Oubre into the starting lineup for Morris, which couldn’t have worked out more perfectly. And he’s brought in Thomas Bryant to fill in at the center position until Dwight Howard comes back from injury. Brooks has started to turn things around for the team. Everyone seems to have bought in. This hasn’t been an easy start to the season for him, especially since he’s been on the hot seat. It also doesn’t help when Wall and Brooks get into a verbal altercation. Despite all this, Brooks has pulled it together and it showed last night against the Rockets. The Wizards were down 12 after the first quarter and they could’ve checked. But, they strung together a nice rally to make it a game heading into halftime. Normally, anytime Harden is dropping 50 plus points, the opposing team is well out of the game, but not the Wizards. Even though Harden kept scoring, they were determined to make every shot extremely difficult. All in all, great poise by the coaching staff and the team. They were big in the fourth quarter and in overtime. Brooks did a fantastic job in last nights affair.. Coach. Washington Wizards. SCOTT BROOKS

Great win by the Wizards. The team now stands at 8-12 and are just 1.5 games back of the 8th spot. Things are trending upward for the team.
