Washington Wizards guard Jordan Poole thinks that the roster is still getting used to being in new situations.
(via Washington Wizards):
Reporter: “With where you guys are right now, what’s the toughest thing for this team going forward? In other words, what’s the biggest challenge for you guys?”
Poole: “I think we are seeing it for the first time. If you go back to a couple games ago, the Brooklyn game, the Raptors game, it showed what type of team we can be when we’re playing the way we’re supposed to play. But we’ve got a lot of young guys who are seeing late game actions for the first time, seeing new roles, seeing new minutes. So just seeing it, learning from it, finding ways to go back to the drawing board, seeing what we can fix, what we can learn. It’s very early. Very long season. 82 game season, we’re 11 games in right now. So, just continuing to learn. Delayed gratification right? We’re not working just for the next game or the game after that. We’re working for games in January, games in February, down the course. It’s a rhythm game, the league is all about rhythm, the league is all about pattern. So once we start to figure those out, once we start to find those, everything else will take care of itself.”
