“It’s a letdown,” Harris said. “Pretty solid first half, but it was kind of hard to get out of that third quarter. We dug ourselves into a deep hole, and we didn’t have enough energy to dig ourselves out.”
The Wizards built a 17-10 lead in the first before New Jersey found its rhythm. Butler’s 12 first-quarter points set the tone for the Wizards’ 28-27 lead. Then in the second, Stevenson scored eight points to keep the Wizards rolling.
Following the game, the Wizards returned to the District, where they host the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
