It has already been reported that Bertan was unmistakable from the penalty shootout on Tuesday and scored 20 points in the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) regular season game, but did not save the Washington Wizards.
The Wizards, represented by Bertāns and Anžeja Pasečnik, lost to the Chicago Bulls in their field with a score of 107: 115 (26:31, 20:21, 27:31, 34:32), suffering their fourth failure in the fourth game of the season.
Bertāns had about 20 minutes in the first three fights of the season, but on Tuesday he played 26 minutes and played the most productive match so far.
“I haven’t played five-to-five basketball in seven months, so it’s not easy to keep up with the best basketball players in the world. I’ve now taken 60-70% of my optimal form, which is enough for the current playing time, but the most important thing is to feel the game and its It will take a couple of games, but I think that the fourth quarter of today ‘s match was a step in the right direction, “Bertāns told the post – match press conference.
As one of the reasons for the loss, Bertāns mentions that the team has not played yet.
“It’s hard not to be able to help Rui Hachimura in the first matches. I don’t think it’s easy for the coach to rotate the players because we haven’t fully felt each other. Last season it was clear enough who will start the game and who will spend how many minutes on the court. It’s big now challenge, but I don’t think there’s any specific reason why the attack isn’t what we’d like, and as with every team, we haven’t had much time together, especially for debutants who haven’t had a chance to train with the team. , “explained Bertāns.
The “Wizards” team spent an unusually long time in the locker room after the match, but Bertāns denies that the team would be in a bad mood.
“What is said in the locker room also stays in the locker room. The only way we can get out of this situation is to work together as a team – to learn and help each other. A negative mood about four losses will not help us win,” the basketball player concluded.
Bertan spent 26 minutes and 17 seconds in the duel on the court, during which he sent his only two-point shot, three of the nine long shots and all nine free throws to the basket.
He also won four rebounds, scored twice, intercepted one ball and broke the rules four times. With Bertāns on the field, “Wizards” threw by six points more than they let in, which was the best score in the team.
Pacennik, meanwhile, remained on the reserve bench and is still waiting for his first game of the season.
The Wizards, with four losses in four games, finish last among the 15 Eastern Conference teams.
