In Washington, the expression of a new DNA | NBA


The Wizards have more than one trick up their sleeve. Among the surprises of the start of the season, Washington did not steal its second place in the Eastern Conference this morning.

So far, the formation of Wes Unseld Jr. has been able to find the solutions to move forward, whether it is to compensate for the occasional absence of a Bradley Beal, or to revive the machine after two setbacks in a row.

A return symbolizing the strength of character of the team

Beaten by the Heat two days earlier in Florida, the Wizards this time showed character to take their revenge after a stunning final, to win 103-100.

“We just can’t give up. I think it’s in our DNA, and it’s a great asset we can count on when things don’t go our way ”, underlined the coach of DC. “I congratulate our guys, because there was a bit of frustration at the start, and the rest could have turned from one side to the other. But we were able to stay together, and the guys fought. They stayed together, and we were able to pull off the victory ”.

Among the heroes of the victorious return of the Wizards, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (16 points) is one of these new players who brought character to this team, alongside a Kyle Kuzma or a Montrezl Harrell, leader par excellence in state of mind.

Like his coach, the sniper feels the same energy emanating from his group. “We are a team that will never give up. We will fight until the end. We will give everything on the ground. We show it from time to time in every game. It’s our DNA. We just fight ”.

The best is yet to come ?

The Wizards’ start to the season may seem all the more surprising given the many adjustments made during the offseason, whether on the bench or in the roster.

Admittedly, this one seemed more complete, with the forces in presence more distributed. But the speed with which the group has been efficient and consistent is quite remarkable, not to mention that three important players from the previous year, Davis Bertans and Thomas Bryant and Rui Hachimura, are still missing.

« It’s really special, because for us, we just want to continue to build on what we have already accomplished », explained Bradley Beal, who appreciates after years of struggling with the Wizards. “We have a lot of new faces, a new coach, a new system. Everything is new. We’re, what, about 20 games now? So everyone is still learning. We are still learning as we go. But it’s amazing to see that we are able to win games while we are still learning. It’s a good sign. We will continue to build on this basis. And when we get all of our healthy guys back, we’ll be even better ”.
