Washington Wizards could not get past the Boston Celtics in the first play-in round, and Skip Bayless found a chance to call out Russell Westbrook for his below-average performance on Tuesday.
Despite his strong start, which helped the Wizards lead in the half, Westbrook’s game sizzled down in the second part of the game.
The Celtics used a great run during the second half to come back and win the game thanks to Jayson Tatum’s 50-point night. Westbrook finished the game with 20 points and 14 rebounds.
Bayless was disappointed by Westbrook’s performance, as now the Wizards have to win the game against the Pacers on Thursday to secure a spot in the playoffs.
