Bradley Beal predicts Wizards will get ‘their a—- kicked’ during playoffs
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal has grown disappointed of the effort by his team after an inexcusable loss to the New York Knicks, where former teammate Trey Burke got the best of him with an efficient 19-point performance.
The Wizards have now lost to the San Antonio Spurs, Denver Nuggets, and Knicks in their last three games, mired in sixth place and showing no signs of the resiliency they had following John Wall’s injury.
“I’m tired of talking about this s***. It’s just the same thing over and over,” said Beal, according to Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington. “Until we do it individually and together collectively, we’re going to get our a**** kicked in the playoffs. This isn’t even remotely acceptable, how we are playing right now.”
Point guard Tomas Satoransky, who has taken over Wall’s spot in his absence, echoed Beal’s sentiment, noting the team is playing a waiting game for its ultimate salvation.
“It looks like we are waiting for John to come back and change everything,” said Satoransky. “We’re not playing like we did the first games he was missing. That’s not right way to do it. We have to go and play as hard as we can every game.”
Washington will face the Spurs once again without Wall on Tuesday, both teams in sixth place of their respective conference and fighting for the best possible spot prior to the end of the season.
Wall is still a few games away from a return despite having gone through a couple of full-contact practices in recent days.
