Wizards John Wall hit with $15000 fine for criticizing refs

View 1 Item

Washington had multiple opportunities to tie the game up at the end, including a possession which Bradley Beal botched, resulting in a turnover.

Washington Wizards guard John Wall has been fined $15,000 after publicly criticizing officials on Friday night.

"I've never hit 50 wins", Jazz forward Gordon Hayward said, "so that would be pretty cool". I was taking him out to just collect himself because he was struggling a little bit offensively. Against the Clippers their offense was clicking but they allowed 133 points; and last night against the Jazz they played effective defense for three quarters (they allowed 31 in the last quarter) but their offense was off and stifled by the stiff Jazz defense.

Gobert repeatedly disrupted the unsafe Wizards offense that had been held to under 100 points just once in the previous 18 games.

The winning ways have continued, with the Spurs right on the Golden State Warriors' heels once again, coming off a season in which they won a franchise-record 67 games.

Wall expressed his disbelief at a couple of other calls in the game, notably a foul drawn by Jazz backup guard Shelvin Mack in the closing seconds. "He said what he said, it's now time to just move on, focus on basketball, and he will", coach Scott Brooks said.

"Those two guys (Wall and Beal), they're arguably the best backcourt in the league, and that's why their team is where they are".

"I'm a student of the game", Mack said. The Wizards also didn't find themselves at the free throw line as much as they normally would.

Looking at the betting trends, the Jazz are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games, 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games against a team above.600 and 6-19-1 ATS in their last 26 against the Western Conference.

Tight Race in East The Wizards enter tonight's game in third place in the East, 1.5 games behind the Cavs and 2.0 games behind the Celtics for the top spot.

"For one, I haven't been saying nothing to the refs lately because I know what situation I've been in, but the way they've been officiating today doesn't make no sense", Wall said. "To shoot 31 free throws to 16". We're going to have to be a team that when we need a stop, we can get a stop. That don't make no sense. To shoot 31 free throws to 16 - we're an aggressive team that attacks the basket. "That's how I feel about it". He'd love nothing more than for Derrick Favors (knee bruise), George Hill (groin strain) and Raul Neto (groin strain) to return healthy. "We're a good team that come out and play hard every night and we deserve certain calls".
