Kyle Kuzma fires back at Spencer Dinwiddie after Wizards win over Mavs


The Wizards pulled together for a solid 127-126 team victory over the Mavericks on Tuesday night, their first game back since trading Rui Hachimura to the Lakers.

But it's what transpired after the game that's soaking up the headlines.

Spencer Dinwiddie, who played half a season for Washington before being traded to Dallas a year ago, told reporters that the Mavs had no business losing to a team like the Wizards, which he says has nothing to play for.

"They're not playing for nothing for real," Dinwiddie said. "They're just coming out here firing, like they've got people coming off the bench just firing. Because at the end of the day for them, it's a showcase. They're over there trying to get paid, they're not trying to play winning basketball. So for a team that has real aspirations and has an MVP and went to the Conference Finals last year, we have to be better to a man."

The Mavericks fell to 25-24 with the loss while the Wizards (21-26) are five games under .500.

Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma had words for Dinwiddie on Twitter.

The Wizards are 2-0 against the Mavs on the season series and the two teams won't meet again until next season.
