Washington Wizards Crying On The Bench Following Playoff Elimination
We’ve all seen heartbreak in sports. Someone has to win and someone has to lose and that’s just how it is. Not fair or impartial, it’s just how it is in the end. That’s what they play for, to win, to keep going, to prove the hard work will pay off.
It’s usually in the NCAA we see the players who lose tournament games break down, cry, or hold their heads under towels. You don’t generally see this happen in the NBA, but last night that was exactly what happened.
In a 112-99 loss to the Detroit Pistons, numerous Wizards including Marcin Gortat showed their sorrow with the Wizards’ unfortunate season. After a long, tumultuous season of injuries and inconsistent play, the Wizards will have to wait for the 2016-17 campaign for a chance to make the post-season.
The Pistons looked ecstatic as Reggie Jackson poured in 39 points at the Wizards expense.
