Wall says disjointed Wizards in need of changes

A day after a season-ending loss in the first round of the playoffs, Washington's John Wall said it's up to management to shed players who don't want to be there and add players who will help the team's consistency.

Marcin Gortat says John Wall and Bradley Beal are a perfect fit game and personality-wise. "I watched [Wall and Beal play] for five years... they fit each other perfectly because one guy handles the ball, pushes hard, the other guy is a great shooter, great athlete," Gortat said. "They are both different. Ice and fire I would say. They respect and value different things in life. One guy is super loud, the other guy is super quiet. Sometimes when you are playing with John, you at some point are like, can you please [not] speak anymore and when he is actually missing [due to injury], you have Brad and [it's] like, can you please say something? They complement each other perfectly. I mean, listen, you make playoffs four out of five years, that is pretty good."

Marcin Gortat said any speculation about friction between him and John Wall or internally with the team was "nonsense." "We are definitely on the same page, we had great chemistry toward the end of the year," Gortat said. "Stuff that came out in the middle of the season was mostly created unfortunately by you guys, by a lot of people that has no clue of what is going on with the team. Whatever stuff that came out about me and John, it is all nonsense and stuff that is unnecessary… we did talk about a lot of things and we have no issues. I mean [supposedly] having all those issues and the next game he passes me the ball eight times and I give him eight assists and I have eight buckets? I mean come on, if I were pissed at somebody, I wouldn't probably pass him the ball. We are good. Are we best friends and like the greatest friends? Probably not. But I am not best friends with probably half of the team over there."

Marcin Gortat said he's read how people have written how he's gotten old and he's adamant that he has plenty left in the tank. He made it clear he hates when the Wizards and other teams go small, stating that "small ball is trash." Gortat doesn't know what the Wizards will do with him entering the final year of his deal but he made it clear he can still play.

John Wall says he felt that he was healthy in this series despite only playing 10 games since returning from surgery. Wall said the season was disappointing for him because he missed half the season due to injury but he says a positive was seeing Bradley Beal grow and play at an "MVP" level while he was out to carry the team.

Kyle Lowry says it was "incredible" to see the amount of minutes that John Wall played coming off surgery but noted that for he and DeMar DeRozan to only play in the 30's in a closeout game is rare. Wall and Bradley Beal had to try to carry so much and log heavy minutes that likely impacted them down the stretch of these last two games.

John Wall and Bradley Beal combined to score 55 points but they had a total of 10 turnovers. Toronto as a team turned the ball over just seven times. And only one other Wizard scored in double figures as Markieff Morris finished with 12 points and 15 rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr., starting in place of Otto Porter Jr., shot 1-for-7 and had just three points, three rebounds and four fouls.

Stat that could mean nothing by the end of the night: The Raptors are 0-23 all-time when trailing at halftime on the road in the playoffs according to ESPN Stats and Info.

John Wall and Bradley Beal both shot 5-for-12 from the field in the first half and combined to score 25 points. They got some much-needed help from Markieff Morris, who has been quiet since Game 1 when he had 22 points and 11 rebounds. Morris hit 4-of-6 shots and has nine points and nine rebounds in the half. He grabbed five offensive rebounds. Mike Scott also provided a lift with eight points as the Wizards continue to try to fill Otto Porter's absence. Washington gave up too much in the paint, surrendering 26 points inside to help Toronto cut a 12-point deficit to three at the half.

Fred VanVleet is available to play but Dwane Casey said, "I don't know what to expect."

Kelly Oubre Jr. not only has his hands full drawing DeMar DeRozan a bit more now but he will have to be able to shoot efficiently — something Otto Porter Jr. has always done well even if he struggled in this series. Oubre has to keep the Raptors defense honest. He had 14 points in Game 5 but missed 6-of-7 3-pointers in that Wizards' loss.
