The Wizards once again succumbed to the wrath that has become the Detroit Pistons. The night served plenty of heartache from Nene's absence to John Wall's barf-worthy performance, to Steve Buckhantz's fake-me-out dagger. The dejection transpired into the locker room as Wall had little to say in defense of his recent funk. Brad Beal expressed remorse for passing up a layup or floater attempt on the final possession, while Trevor Ariza broke down the possible confusion on the final play. Ariza also defended his point guard after a reporter suggested that Wall wasn't "acting like the leader." "We all didn't do what we needed to do, and if we want to win games, we have to bring a better effort." -- Trevor Ariza "We have to realize it's not about 'me me me', it's about 'WE' and tonight we didn't show that." -- Bradley Beal "No health issue at all. Just trying to play basketball and help my teammates." -- John Wall
