The Washington Wizards fell into an 0-2 hole following their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics last night. Washington played well but could not close the deal. Boston took the game to OT and pulled away.
Wizards power forward Markieff Morris stated he felt they weren’t playing tough enough to get the win.
“We’re not playing tough enough. We had the advantage late in the game and all we had to do is play tough. We didn’t have to make shots. We didn’t have to get stops. All we had to do is play tough. We let them get offensive rebounds late in the game. Guys just walking to the basket and we’re worrying about our own personal (expletive). It’s about the team. It’s about winning. We didn’t care about that too much tonight. We let them back in the game and got to regroup and get the next one.”
Morris is known as one of the tougher players in the NBA. Washington definitely needs to change something to hold on to the leads late in games.
