Washington had a case of the "Beasley's"

+

Early on for the Wizards, it was all jump shots, except for one drive by John Wall that resulted in a missed layup. The lack of weakside cutting was especially bad. Not to defend anyone who launched early jump shots, because there was a lot of it, but with nobody moving anywhere else, those kinds of shots become harder and harder to pass up. It was as if the team's energy mirrored the deadness of the crowd. ... The Wizards' floor spacing is just terrible, especially compared to a Minnesota team that can station shooters across the wings at four positions. Part of floor spacing is intelligence, and part of it is skills. You can't have too many non-shooters on the floor, which is a roster construction issue, but you also need guys who know how to use their skills properly in a team setting. The Wizards too often have neither. When I see how Minnesota moves the ball to an open three-point shooter in the corner on a secondary break, I immediately wonder what Wall thinks.
