Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder, post-game
I think we’re getting better defensively. Just gotta keep at it, and the, you know, I wanna see the aggressiveness and the activity, and we did a few good things with respect to that.
** Snyder on Rudy Gobert’s performance
I think Rudy played hard, you know? I think just with Rudy, there’s gonna be, more and more experience is gonna help him, and you know, the best thing is he competed. I thought our whole team competed, and that was, you know, that’s something to hang on to.

booker shirtAs mentioned by @DJJazzyJody on Twitter: Trevor Booker made himself a sleeveless warmup shirt. Either that, or there was a Marvin Williams-Zaza Pachulia situation happening in Washington.

** Trey Burke, post-game
We knew it was gonna be a battle, you know, coming on the road. You know, first half, I felt like we did a great job on the defensive end, you know, holding ’em to, I think, like, 13 points in the second quarter. I, it was just the second half. You know, we talked about it at halftime, you know, coming out and you know, playing our way of basketball, you know, the way we usually play in the second half. You know, but once they went on their run, it’s kinda like we, you know, kinda got disconnected on the offensive end. But you know, the good thing to take from this game is, you know, defensively, I think we played well as a team.
** Burke on the rest of the road trip
We gotta continue to compete, man. We, we’re in all of these games. You know, I keep telling the team that. You know, we’re in all of these games, and we know that teams are gonna go on runs. We’re gonna go on runs. That’s what basketball is about. It’s just about who stays together, you know, when the other team does go on a run. So, we’re gonna definitely try to get some wins on this road trip.

Poll: Does Trey Burke need to invest in some baggier pants?

** Craig Bolerjack on John Wall: He’s got 3 inches and about 15 pounds of advantage on Trey Burke.
** Boler on Trey Burke: Trey’s been holding his own so far.
** Boler to Trey Burke, post-game: It looks like you’ve got some penetration and dribble-drive penetration on the mind.
** Boler to Trey Burke on Rudy Gobert, post-game: He looked a little tight early, but he loosened up.

    The Wizards should annihilate the Jazz.

    People calling Gordon Hayward- Gordon Haywood for the entire second half of the game: Washington Wizards color commentary guy.

    Not the first half the first half he was Hayward. Only in the second half did he come Haywood.
