Seraphin: Wizards ‘finally play like a team’
“We finally play like a team,” said (Kevin) Seraphin, who posted 16 points and also added 10 rebounds for the fourth time in the past six games. “Everybody don’t try to be the heroes tonight, we just play – if you’re not open, you pass the ball – like a good team should play. Like the Spurs play, like Miami play, like Celtics, everybody. We have to do that every night, every night.”
Of all the season-high marks the Wizards set against the Heat, recording 31 assists on 38 field goals is arguably the most impressive. Washington has struggled to share the ball well throughout its first 14 games, but as evidenced by the improvement Tuesday at Verizon Center it’s all just a matter of the players trusting each other.
“Just having confidence and trust in our teammates and faith in knowing that they’re going to make the right decisions when we dribble penetrate and kick out,” (Martell) Webster said. “Tonight we find ourselves on the good side of making opportunities for each other.”
