Wizards know path back to playoffs starts on defense

WASHINGTON (AP) John Wall remembers how good of a defensive team the Washington Wizards were when they made the playoffs in 2014 and 2015 and wants defense to be the foundation they use to get back to the postseason.

With new coach Scott Brooks preaching a defense-first mentality, Wall, backcourt mate Bradley Beal and the Wizards appear ready to buy in. As much as Washington can light up the scoreboard, the path to the playoffs starts with being more consistent defensively.

"Some nights you're not going to make shots, but your defense has got to win you games sometimes," Wall said. "If we're a great defensive team, we'll be fine. But if not we'll go through the same problems we went through last year."
