(Coach Scott) Brooks, in his first season in Washington, chalked up Wednesday’s loss in one word: Effort. Randy Wittman, who was fired at the end of a 41-41 season in 2015-16, mentioned it often.
“The only way you win in this league is by giving maximum effort every time down the court, both ends of the floor,” Brooks said. “There’s some teams that can relax a possession here and there because they’ve got multiple All-Stars. We don’t have that. We’ve got to play with maximum effort each time down the court otherwise it puts too much pressure on every possession to score. It’s tough to do that. It’s still early. I’m not down but I want some urgency. I have to find guys that are going to do that each time we put them in the game. It has to mean something.”
