Wizards John Wall hit with $15000 fine for criticizing refs

Wizards John Wall hit with $15000 fine for criticizing refs

There were no open shots because of Wall's off night, so he had manufacture his own points via the drive, pull-ups and the crafty in-and-out dribbles he continues to ideal.

After a game where the Jazz shot nearly twice as many free throws as Washington did, John Wall ripped the referees, and blamed them for the loss.

Normally quiet and PR-friendly, Wall sat shirtless in the visiting locker room, clearly upset about the way the Wizards lost in Utah.

"Go ahead. Start the show", Wall teased.

It wasn't the most efficiently officiated game of the season, but that happens.

"The way they've been officiating today doesn't make no sense". Wall dubbed the call "outrageous", insisting it was incidental contact.

Bears' Hall, Packers' Dorleant arrested
Cedar Falls authorities responded to a disturbance at Sharky's Funhouse on Saturday where a bouncer says he assaulted. Officers handcuffed Hall, who police said was argumentative, resisted arrest and refused to get into the squad auto .

"I had to get [my arm] bandaged up because I'm bleeding and the ref told me, 'That's not a foul, '" continued the former No. 1 overall pick. It's getting out of hand.

"If you want us to compete at a high level like we've been doing - we didn't lose this game". To make matters worse, Shelvin Mack, who used to be tasked with backing up Wall as a Washington Wizard, played exceptional the entire game, but specifically in the fourth quarter. But you don't shoot no 31 free throws to 16 the way we attack the basket as a team.

"I tried to get some [technical fouls] rescinded before; it never works for my favor". So, all I can do is just keep my mouth shut like I've been doing. Expect the Jazz to focus on their players' health for the playoffs over trying to pick up extra wins in the regular season.

"I think that type of effort when everything is not flawless, you have to grind", said Jazz head coach Quin Snyder. "They shot a lot more free throws than us and that's the difference in the game". "Not really forcing anything, but just taking what the defense is giving me".

"We're a good team and we're not a sorry team", Wall said.

The announcement came before Washington played at Golden State on Sunday night.

Temporary lockdown was placed on some of the House office buildings in the vicinity, but the lockdown has been lifted. On March 19, a driver reportedly pulled up to the White House and claimed to have a bomb in the auto early Sunday.

Wall's thoughts were echoed by teammates. "I wasn't taking him out for rest. We've still got the playoffs". PF - Markieff Morris, C - Marcin Gortat.

"What I've learned most as a coach is persistence and patience", Rivers said before the game. So I guess that's that.

The Jazz lead the National Basketball Association in points against and are second in opponents field goal percentage, so the Wiz will want to get up and down and play at a faster pace tonight to avoid falling into Utah's style of play. After several minutes of review, the lead official Goble assessed Wall with a technical foul.

Coach Scott Brooks wasn't pleased either. I've been around a lot of fights back when I played.

Lakers: They have used 23 different starting lineups this season with no player starting every game. According to Section V on conduct: "A technical foul can not be assessed for physical contact when the ball is alive".

Now slotted as the fourth seed out West, the Jazz are playing some of their best basketball of the season. "I've been around John quite a bit he's not going to hit somebody below the belt".

What to Watch For Getting on the Glass The Jazz almost doubled the Wizards in rebounds the last time these two teams met, in part due to the Wizards shooting just 42.5% from the field. Gordon Hayward led Utah with 20 points, while Rudy Gobert finished the game with 16p-15r. "They should be interviewing me!" "We need those guys to not only be out there, but to be effective".
