Capitol loss: Thunder loses to ailing Wizards in nation's capital

(Continued)

NOTES: The Wizards waived Shelvin Mack on Monday. In seven games, he averaged 5.3 points. . Brooks said he hasn’t spoken with Durant about the forward’s ejection during Oklahoma City’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. “You have to play your personality,” Brooks said. “You don’t want to be a phony on the court, and Kevin’s not. He’s a nice young man that competes, competes fairly and competes the best way that he knows how to. I never complain about Kevin’s passion.” ... Four years ago, the Thunder started 3-29, even worse than Wittman’s Wizards to open this season. “I know how Randy feels,” Brooks said. “It’s not easy, because you don’t see a lot of sunshine. But, they have good players that work hard, and eventually it turns around. ... Kevin Durant helps, also.” ... The Wizards’ 30 first-quarter points matched a season high for the opening period.
