As we gear up to head on the road this weekend to check out one of our many road games this season, we could help but to take note of the defensive woes they have been showing so far this season.
When a team like Boston is able to put up 140 points in a game, the most so far for them this season, there is something that needs to be fixed. While we didn’t think too much about it after that lost to Houston, its time to start thinking about what needs to be done to fix the balance between offensive scoring and how many points they are giving up per game.
Overall, it seems that many scores are super high already this season, not just the few Wizards games this season. Are more teams skipping the defense knowing that they can just outpace a team late in the game to a victory? Regardless of the answers, there needs to be more accountability when your best player on the court, Bradley Beal throws up 44 points on the box score and the game gets tossed in the loss column with allowing the Celtics to put up 96 shots and shoot over 50 percent from the field.
John Wall continues make strides towards coming back. Although there has been no set timetable, his ability to run and dunk the ball pregame were an indication on how he is getting his game back in case he can some how return this season.
