After (Marcin) Gortat proclaimed the team’s reserves “one of the worst benches in the league right now” following Washington’s seventh loss in nine games Saturday against Chicago, (Wizards coach Scott) Brooks and Gortat stood together in front of the team before practice Monday. Gortat apologized, and Brooks preached unity to a team that can’t afford to waste energy pointing fingers.

With that possibility hanging over them, Brooks promised Gortat’s comments had no lingering effects on the team’s mind-set.

“You move on, and we have a good group of guys that understand that,” Brooks said. “We all make mistakes at times, but we have to move on, and we will. We’re not happy, and that’s a good thing. If we were happy and we’re 2-7, I would be really concerned.

For those who obsess over LeBron James’ minutes, Monday was a good night.

James played a season-low 27 minutes in the Cavs’ 116-88 win over the Detroit Pistons, exiting the game with 1:40 left in the third quarter having scored 18 points with eight assists.

James is 32, and even with the easy night against the Pistons still leads the NBA with 37.9 minutes per game. Giannis Antetokounmpo, 22, is second with 37.8 minutes for Milwaukee.

James said after Monday’s win: “You make so much a big thing about my minutes. It’s not a huge issue. But at the end of the day, when we can get a win like this, everybody benefits from it. Not just me. Everybody.”
