While everyone from Doc Rivers to Rajon Rondo praised Celtics guard Avery Bradley on his career night, Wizards coach Randy Wittman wasn't impressed.
"I could have scored those layups," Wittman said after watching Bradley score a career-high 23 points in an 88-76 Celtics victory over his Wizards. "I'm being serious. We didn't have anybody guarding him. When I was a player, if you gave me four layups to start the game, I'd have a pretty good groove on to make some jump shots. He ought to send us a postcard of thank yous or something for allowing him to score. I'm sure he thought it was still layup lines before the game."
Bradley's 23 points came on 9-for-14 shooting. For the record, Wittman averaged 7.4 points over nine NBA seasons for the Hawks, Kings and Pacers from 1983-92.
