Question of the Day
“It makes things a lot easier,” coach Rick Adelman said of his second-team backcourt. “I like the way they played at both ends of the court. We’ve got to get something going when those guys come in.”
The Wizards, meanwhile, were looking to end a four-game road swing with a statement. They beat the Knicks, Nets and Celtics to start the trip, then had five days off before facing the Timberwolves, and coach Randy Wittman wanted to see his young team build on the steps he believed they took in those victories.
The Wolves dictated play for most of the night, shooting 38 free throws to just 17 for Washington and outrebounding the Wizards 44-35, including 14-9 on the offensive end.
“They were tougher than we were,” Wittman said. “They pushed us around. We had no resistance. So we’ve got to put this game behind us but learn from it.”
