When it rains it pours, but no one needs to tell the Washington Wizards or their fan base that. Coming off two embarrassing losses with a couple of days to rest and get things sorted out, the Wizards came out flat and uninterested.
Ultimately, it resulted in their fifth straight loss. This time it was at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies, 115-95. After the Grizzlies ran off to a 30-15 lead after the first quarter, the Wizards failed to ever make a serious run back into the game.
This didn’t seem possible. Surely the team and coaching staff would have too much pride after their recent performances to simply not show up for this one. Somehow, that’s exactly what they did.
There are many more questions to be asked than just three. We could provide three for every player on the roster and coach on the staff if that would be useful. Instead, we’re focusing on the three biggest questions that come straight from this loss to the Grizzlies.
While it took some tough decisions and many important questions were left off the board, those questions will still be asked in the near future I am sure. Frustrated fans might find this as a stress reliever as they realize the entire fan base seems to actually be on the same page. The problem is getting the organization to realize things that seem quite simple.
