They worked on rotations and playing through Vucevic.
"We're just trying to do a better job playing through Vooch," said DeRozan. "Especially with me and Zach getting pressured so much. Once he gets going, it makes everybody else's job easier. He was aggressive out of the gate and we leaned on that and got it going in the second half. You have to make a decision on how you are going to guard us. Vooch is capable of making plays, shots, shooting threes, mid range; teams have to make a decision. It's a tough cover."
As for the Wizards, Rai Hachimura scored 21 points and Caldwell-Pope added 20 points. The team was without their star Bradley Beal (Left Wrist) and Kyle Kuzma (Right Knee)
