The Washington Wizards are winless in their first five games, and Bradley Beal isn’t happy about that

Beal expressed frustration with his team’s home defeat by the Chicago Bulls on Thursday at the Capital One Arena (133: 130). Optimistically, he believes that frustration will lead to better basketball sooner rather than later:

“Yeah, everyone’s pissed off,” Beal said of The Athletic’s Fred Katz “We’re pissed off, yup But in a good way, we’re pissed off”

“Everyone has their own ritual I won’t change mine,” he said, “but I have to be better We have to unite. We have to do it together ”

The Wizards lost despite Chicago being without four players going through the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols

Otto Porter Jr A lazy Wizards defense dropped 28 points while Zach LaVine added 22 points. The Bulls lost their first three games of the season before beating Washington in the country’s capital

Russell Westbrook had his fourth triple-double in a row in his four games in D. (22 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists) while Beal and Thomas Bryant both score 28 points. Of course, those stats mean nothing without wins:

“We don’t make moral victories,” Beal said of ESPN “I have to do better on the floor I have to finish the game”

“There’s still a lot of season left,” said Wizards coach Scott Brooks. “This first win is always difficult”

The Wizards ranks 122 so far 2 points per game in 2020-21, one of the worst averages in the league After Brooks’ roster dropped to the Philadelphia 76ers on opening night, he dropped consecutive matchups against the Orlando Magic before he hosted Chicago for two games Westbrook was extremely frustrated after losing on Tuesday and stopped speaking to the media after losing on Thursday

Beal and Westbrook have their next chance on Friday to get into the W column in a street competition with the Minnesota Timberwolves
