Here's a good stat I saw Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier talk about before tonight's game.
John Wall & Bradley Beal are the top 2 scorers in the 4th quarter right now in the entire NBA. WUT— Albert L. (@aleeinthedmv) November 7, 2015
And here's a bad stat:
A key stat in the #WizCeltics game: the Wizards' TOV% in the 1st quarter: 23.18%, Celtics: 6.44%. No wonder why DC's losing 40-25...— Albert L. (@aleeinthedmv) November 7, 2015
It is nice to see that The House of Guards knows how to take over games late. But at the same time, the Wizards can't afford to give up tons of points and play sloppy basketball.
After losing by as many as 30 (!!!!) points in the second quarter, Washington was able to cut the lead to 15 when Wall and Beal started turning on the jets. But the Celtics were able to get the lead back up to above 20 points before halftime.
We're down, 72-49. The Wizards MUST take better care of the basketball. So far, the 11 turnovers they gave up turned into 17 Celtics points. On the flip side, the Washington only forced Boston to turn the ball over seven times and scored just five points off of them.
Let's keep the comments rollin'. Maybe a miracle will happen.
