The Wizards vowed to play faster than in years past with speedster John Wall directing a remodeled up-tempo offense. They want to wear teams out with constant pressure, pushing the pace whenever possible. They want track meets. To prepare for the rigor, the team ran more in preseason practices than in previous years under Coach Randy Wittman. The early results are striking: Washington ranked first in the NBA in pace at 103.04 possessions per 48 minutes entering Friday’s games after finishing last season 16th at 95.96 possessions per 48 minutes.
