After the win on Thursday in a row, tonight against Oklahoma, the Wizards and its big star are approaching the tenth place leading to the playoffs entry tournament: "It feels great, I wish it would have happened earlier this season" • Brooks: "Think we can play even better towards the end of the season"
With five straight wins and another great performance tonight (Monday through Tuesday) against Oklahoma, Washington has increased its chances of reaching the NBA playoffs.
The Wizards moved closer to Chicago in tenth place in the East, leading to the playoffs entering the playoffs of the best league in the world.
Due to the instability the team from the capital is showing this year, they are in no hurry to celebrate the fine streak but the energy seems to be starting to improve.
"It feels great, I wish it was happening earlier this season," said Bradley Bill, who stitched 30 points in 107: 119 tonight.
"We shot ourselves in the foot with how we played, but it's good that we recovered. The guys are starting to play at a high level," he added.
His coach, Scott Brooks, also expressed optimism when he said: "Now we are presenting a much better defense. We have a chance to take another step in the right direction, we will soon get Roy Hachimura back. I think we can play even better towards the end of the season."

On Davis Bartans' ability, Brooks added: "If he throws 12 threes in a game, I will be the happiest coach in the league. When he throws threes, we are a better team."
The one who took less part in the celebration is Danny Abdia who scored just 6 points on 3 of 11 from the field, including 0 of 6 from outside the arc.
