What was that? The Washington Wizards were definitely doing something Friday night, but I'm not sure you could call it 'basketball.'
The Wizards set a league-low for points this season in a 93-66 road loss to the Indiana Pacers, during which Washington shot 32 percent from the field and 39 percent from the free throw line. Neither of those are typos. Don't worry, I triple-checked.
They were outrebounded by 20. Indiana had twice as many assists. Somehow the team with Roy Hibbert only had one block, while the Wizards finished with seven. Doesn't make sense, until you go back and remember that the Wiz didn't even bother challenging the Pacers in the paint, because why do that??
Really, you want to know? Fine...
32 - Washington's field goal percentage against Indiana. *BARF*
39 - Washington FREE THROW percentage against Indiana. *RETCH*

#Wizards never seem to give a damn about losing. Always 'just shots didn't fall' type of B.S.— Kyle Weidie (@Truth_About_It) January 11, 2014
