Scott Brooks said he met with John Wall and Bradley Beal and discussed how the Wizards must get Beal more opportunities. Beal has been held to seven points on 3-of-8 shooting when defended by Kyle Lowry and has struggled in the two fourth quarters so far. "Brad needs to help create himself more opportunities," Brooks said. "John needs to do the same, I need to do the same. That's with all of our guys. I'm more concerned with who's playing better whether you get shots or get points, are you playing well."

The picture seems to sum up the Wizards falling behind 0-2 in this series against Toronto. But John Wall explains he and Marcin Gortat were having this conversation during Game 2 over "our defensive coverage." "That's all it was," Wall said. "People not in that huddle or on the outside gonna think we arguing or having the biggest blowup... As long as we know what's going on and understand that's our brother. That's our family right there. We're the guys that have to stick together when the times are hard or tough. We do that."
