"Nene gives us another facilitator. Against a team like this you need another one," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "With John being one, Bradley can do some things off the dribble but Nene was another guy that can play like Noah does at the top with the ball in his hands, the passing and also the posting up that he does for us. That's no an excuse why we lost."
"That's key to success. Your workplace has to be pretty tight-knit if you're going to be successful," Wittman said as he retreated to the visitor's coaching office at United Center after the 101-99 overtime win Tuesday.
