Wizards’ Wittman: Wall’s Shooting Too Much

Updated

on

(Washington Wizards’ John) Wall took 29 shots in the 113-111 defeat at Verizon Center. That’s 13 more than Bradley Beal, 21 more than Trevor Ariza and Marcin Gortat, 15 more than Nene and 20 more than Martell Webster. Coach Randy Wittman had a sitdown with Wall and went over the video.

“John’s a competitor. I sat down and talked with him,” Wittman said. “It’s not a malicious thing. He wanted to try to take over the game for us. Sometimes you try so hard it’s counterproductive because he’s the one guy that can get a lot of guys shots, get them into a rhythm especially at the start of the game. That’s what he’s got to try to continue to do. When he does that, they’re in a rhythm. John’s going to get his opportunities. The ball is in his hands.”
