Coach Randy Wittman had told his team to talk to each other to work out their issues in the flow of the game, but that didn't consistently happen until Andre Miller arrived and Al Harrington returned from injury.
Martell Webster is being called a game-time decision vs. the Jazz because he has a sore back, which means rookie Otto Porter likely will have a chance to build on what he did Monday.
Already ailing without Nene and Kevin Seraphin, the Wizards lost Martell Webster to a back injury for Monday's game.
John Wall went out of his way to get Trevor Ariza, who six years ago shot less than 30% from three, an easy basket to push him into the 40-point club for the first time.
The Wizards have figured out how to play without Nene going into Saturday's game at the 76ers, who could get a boost from a sellout crowd that'll be on hand for the retirement of Allen Iverson's No. 3 jersey.
Trevor Ariza set a career-high with 40 points, making his first eight three-point shots, and John Wall had 16 assists in just 29 minutes to dominate the Sixers as the Wizards won their sixth game in a row 122-103.
Trevor Ariza put down his plate of chicken long enough for a brief postgame interview, but he wasn't about to stop eating.
Overcoming a blown lead in the third quarter and a game-winner that was waved off, the Wizards won in triple overtime against Toronto, 134-129, on Thursday night.
Marcin Gortat fouled out with 31 points and 12 rebounds, John Wall also had 31 points, and Trevor Ariza fouled out with 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Wizards.
Chris Singleton committed a turnover, but redeemed himself by stealing the inbounds pass and hitting a layup, plus the foul. Watch here.
The Wizards anticipated that little-used Chris Singleton, who doesn't have a contract for next season, would get his chance to prove his value with the trade of Jan Vesely and other injury concerns.
With Nene out for at least the next six weeks the Wizards will turn to the likes of Kevin Seraphin, Chris Singleton, and Trevor Booker to fill that void.
The Wizards have won a season-high four games in a row, this one without Nene and Kevin Seraphin, and have a winning record again.
Thursday's deal has opened the door for Chris Singleton to get more minutes and Garrett Temple to move back to his natural role while the Wizards wait and see with Al Harrington.
The last time John Wall stepped on the floor vs. the Grizzlies, he put up a career-high 47 points that sparked his growth and helped earn him a $80 million max contract extension.
"Defensively I was just talking, making sure everybody is in the right position," Chris Singleton, said recently about the culture change.
"We were off and on with it," Singleton said of the talking among players.
