In a dominant two-way performance from the Washington Wizards, they blew out the Oklahoma City Thunder 105-89 in their second-to-last game of Summer League.

While it was an impressive game defensively for the Wizards, Bilal Coulibaly had FOUR blocks, the offense was even better. The ball movement was impressive from every player on the court. The extra passes were made, great lead passes were laid out, and there were some elite dimes from numerous sources.

However, assists only happen when shots go in, and boy did they go in. It wasn’t even just from the expected scorers like Patrick Baldwin Jr and Ryan Rollins either.

Every player that touched the floor for the Washington Wizards scored at some point

It was an incredibly well-balanced attack on offense for the Wizards in this game. Ten players played, and ten players scored. That’s how you know a coach did their job setting the team up for success.

The leading scorers in this one were Johnny Davis with 22 points, Bilal Coulibaly with 19 points, Ryan Rollins with 15 points, and Dejan Vasiljevic with 14 points. These four players combined for 25/45 from the field (55.5%), leading the way to a dominant win.

The real stand out on offense though was Vasiljevic. His 14 points came on 5/6 shooting with the only miss coming from a heave to end the quarter. As Jamal Crawford said a few times during the broadcast, he was essentially five for five and every shot that went up felt like it was going down.

This is not to overshadow the monstrous two-way game from The Oui-zard though. Coulibaly put up four rebounds, three assists, and four blocks to go along with his already impressive 19 points. He seems ready for the NBA season.

If the young guys can play like this consistently for the Washington Wizards, the future looks even brighter than it did before. It was an incredible outing and an incredible win for the team.
