Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-15

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-15
During the course of a season gone bad, teams such as the Wizards usually go through different stages.

Right now the veterans, the same guys who didn't stick around the locker room to address the media, are in that stage where they are pointing fingers at teammates and accusing them of not giving adequate effort.

Because they didn't hang around Thursday after the Celtics polished them off on their own floor by 34 points, the only indication that all was not well within the locker room was the shouting heard behind closed doors.

But one day later, it was clear what was being discussed.

"That was unacceptable," forward Caron Butler said. "To be sitting here at 4-16 and acting like it's OK, that is not going to happen."

Said teammate Antawn Jamison, who shares a captaincy with Butler: "If that doesn't make you upset, then we don't want you on this team. If you don't take it personal and play with a lot of pride, you are wasting our time. That was the message."

That message mattered little when the Wizards returned to the court Saturday night at Philadelphia, so they must hope things will work out better when they host Indiana on Monday.

SIXERS 104, WIZARDS 89: The 76ers, playing their first game since coach Maurice Cheeks was fired, looked like world-beaters against the pathetic defense and poor shooting of the Wizards.

The 76ers were paced by a season-high 27 points from Elton Brand. Philadelphia made better than 51 percent of its free throws and won the rebounding contest 46-37. Antawn Jamison led the Wizards with 17 points.
