"Well now, I wish they would have just cancelled it," Wittman said. "Obviously, we've had a lot of rain here and obviously there's a hole up there."
Wizards guard Bradley Beal made just 4 of 16 shots from the field.
"It's a big distraction," Beal said of the waiting around. "You can get too complacent and sometimes even forget that you are playing a game when you are waiting so long."
NOTES: Houston F Chandler Parsons was out with a sore right knee for the third straight game. Rockets F Greg Smith, who has missed 21 games with a sore right knee, was hampered by the erratic nature of the game, Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. ... Wizards coach Randy Wittman joked that he called Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel after Friday night's game when he realized his team missed 14 of its 23 free throws. "I asked him where he came up with that defense on the free throw line. It was some of the best I've seen," Wittman said. ... McHale said his team has yet to play its best this season because so many players have been out with injuries. "The exciting thing about this team is if we get everybody back healthy, and get some time together, I think we have a whole nother couple rungs on the ladder that we haven't touched yet," McHale said. ... Houston has won four straight against Washington and 11 of the last 13. ... The 114 points were the second most given up by the Wizards this season.
