Randy Wittman spent the first week of the Washington Wizards' training camp almost exclusively on defense and their offense is clearly lagging behind at this point in the preseason.
The Wizards want to be an uptempo team with John Wall's penetration creating open perimeter looks for their shooters.
The Wizards are shooting just 27.8 percent from three and are averaging 21.6 turnovers per game.
“We’ve got to get better there,” Wittman said of the Wizards’ offensive output. “I knew it would kind of be that way. Always is, if you’re concentrating as I said we were going to do from a defensive standpoint, laying our foundation. Again, you’re concerned. We’re going to have nights where we’re not shooting the ball well. I guarantee you, but our defense has got to win those games for us.”
“I mean it’s preseason right now and those are the things you work on and get your kinks out,” said Wall. “I think we’re doing a great job, just have to be more consistent as a team.”
