The three-pointer stretched the Wizards’ lead to 10 points with 4 minutes 10 seconds remaining and served as the start to Washington’s impressive, late-game execution as they escaped with a 105-99 win Wednesday night over their fellow Eastern Conference contender.

David Aldridge: What do you hear when you hear coach Kidd's voice in your head? Giannis Antetokounmpo: Just to pay attention and listen. He was a great player, he's a great coach. The only thing you can do with Jason Kidd is to pay attention and listen. You're going to learn a lot of things. He challenges you every day. He's challenged me every day. He texts me every day, and he's a great coach. He came to Milwaukee and changed all of this around. So I'm just going to try to practice hard and continue to listen to him, because I know if I listen to him he's going to take me to the next level in my future. NBA.com

There were people who questioned your ability to coach at the beginning. Did you ever question your ability to coach? Jason Kidd: No. I never thought, "This is not for me." I thought I was doing the right thing the whole time. Bleacher Report

What did you think about that criticism? Jason Kidd: It was no different than me being a player. They've always questioned me. I'm the lightning rod for being questioned. I was trying to tape that thing together with duct tape. I was trying to stay positive. Coming in every day wondering if we could practice because we had injuries and an older team. We all learned from each other. We learned we weren't going to quit. When it turned, it turned. It's almost like anything I've been involved in—it's always bad and at some point it turns good.
