Wall was equally disappointed in the team’s poor play and lack of execution.
“It was like Philly was playing with nobody out there,” Wall said. “For us to win, [we’ve] got to play hard, [we’ve] got to play defense. We did neither one tonight.”
Redemption could come quickly. The Wizards will play their second and final preseason game against the 76ers on Tuesday in Philadelphia.
“It’s great. We have to make a statement,” Wall said. “They came in here and just took over the court from us. They did whatever they wanted, got any shot they wanted the whole night. We can’t let teams know it’s going to be that easy; if we do it’s going to be like another practice game to them.”
