Kyle Kuzma: We Can’t Guard A Stop Sign
Before the Washington Wizards beat the Detroit Pistons, they were on a nine-game losing streak. However, the organization went right back to their losing ways. This came at the hands of the Orlando Magic.
The Magic blew the Wizards out of the water by nineteen points when late in the fourth quarter. This, as many would expect, has increased frustration for players and others involved with the team. One of them is franchise leader Kyle Kuzma.
Following the game, Kuzma was asked how it went so sideways for them. The veteran responded with the fact that it starts with defense and that “we can’t guard a stop sign”.
“We can’t guard a stop sign,” Kuzma said. “That’s kind of really what it boils down to. We let anybody get whatever they want on us. So, until we change that, then that’s probably going to be the result.”
Washington has a 120.6 defensive rating that puts them dead last in the league’s ranked defenses among teams. With this information, it is no shock as to why the Wizards are 3-15 on the season.
Their next game is Friday against Orlando, which will be another away game.
