Like the first game on Saturday, the Wizards started off on the wrong foot. Hachimura struggled to get make his shots early but got into a better rhythm as the game went on.
Washington was able to claw their way to a 40-33 lead at halftime but a 34-22 run by the Nets in the third quarter ultimately was too much for Washington to overcome. The Wizards were able to get the deficit down to a single possession multiple times. However, Brooklyn had an answer every time.
The most emphatic comeback play happened at the buzzer when Caupain attempted a three-point shot at the buzzer but saw it blocked instead,.
One of the bright spots of the day was seeing the debut of Moritz Wagner. He scored 8 points and made a couple dunks including this one while cutting to the basket.
The Wizards will play the Clippers on Tuesday at 11:30 p.m. ET in their next game. You can it on NBA TV.
