"It's not fun to lose, but yet it's a pleasure watching a Jerry Sloan team execute," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "And I've always said after we play them that hopefully we can learn from what they do and how they play. So that was pointed out tonight. As far as the game, we just didn't have it. We tried to take away the paint. They made shots. They got the juice going. ... Not happy about some things tonight, but at the same time, that's a heck of a ballclub we played tonight."
