“I mean, I definitely like the spirit, and the confident level our team has,” Brooks said, according to David Aldridge of The Athletic.

Washington has won 7 out of their last 10 games.

“We have a lot of games to make up,” Brooks continued. “We’re still behind a lot of games in the playoff chase, but the confidence level our guys have, hopefully that continues to remain at a high level. But Brad is really leading that charge, along with some good, solid veteran play. Jeff Green has been solid, at both ends, and in the locker room. Trevor (Ariza) has come in and made a statement of who he is as a player, and he’s done a good job of helping us, leading our team as well.”

Washington will battle it our with Orlando, Charlotte, and Miami for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot down the stretch.
