Tapscott said he is still looking for ways to jump-start his team in the third quarter, adding that he will try another tactic Monday when the Wizards finish up their four-game road trip in Minnesota.

“We’ll keep looking at different things,” Tapscott said. “I bring them out [of the locker room] early, I bring them out late. We’ll try something new Monday. We may not have a halftime. I’ll just have the huddle at halfcourt, and we’ll run the offense for 12 minutes. Something like that to keep us focused. If you see us running the offense at halftime in Minnesota, you’ll know I was true to my word.”
