Wittman decries focus after Wizards' 99-91 loss to Rockets

WASHINGTON (AP) For a team that entered the season with aspirations of winning 50 games and earning home-court advantage in the playoffs - the former now impossible, the likelihood of the latter fading quickly - John Wall's Washington Wizards sure are slumping down the stretch.

They can't even seem to run plays properly right after coach Randy Wittman draws them up during a timeout.

Losing for the fifth time in six games, which delayed their bid to secure a postseason berth, the Wizards were beaten 99-91 Sunday by the Houston Rockets, who got 24 points from James Harden, along with 11 points and 10 rebounds in 19 minutes from Dwight Howard, appearing in his third game back from a right knee injury.
