Wizards vs. Warriors postgame links and roll call

New, comments

Let's review Wednesday's game.

The Wizards lost to the Warriors 134-121 in a game when John Wall and Stephen Curry combined for 92 points.

Video

Don Newman's postgame presser is above. Other players' are below:

In Newman's presser, he was asked why he sat Wall in the third quarter after his fourth personal foul despite the fact that the Wizards were down 82-79. Many of us and fans weren't exactly pleased when Golden State took full advantage of that and got the deficit back to double digits.

Newman explained that Wall had to rest and was glad he did sit Wall because of his performance after he came back. Wall scored 41 points in the game despite the loss and made the game interesting until the very end. If Newman kept him in and he commits another personal foul, Wall would have five personal fouls, and he probably would have played fewer minutes than he did.

Ultimately, this is just one of those "damned for doing it" and "damned for not doing it" situations.

Coach Newman has had "numerous procedures and treatments" on his right eye

In the past two seasons, the Newman's right eye has been a topic of discussion among Wizards fans because the area was getting redder, and his eye was eventually shut in the 2014-15 season. In the 2015-16 season, Newman wore a patch on the eye.

With this game on national television and with Randy Wittman sitting the game out, the spotlight was now fully on Newman. The ESPN national team confirmed Newman's eye injury and noted that he has had "numerous procedures and treatments" on it.

Also with Newman as the Wizards' head coach for the last two games and on the bench each of the last two seasons, it sends the message that he is still able to perform despite it. If he wasn't, he would have left a while ago.
