Coach Flip Saunders said Blatche didn't want to listen when the coach wanted to talk to him about playing better defense. Saunders said Blatche then didn't want to play the rest of the game.
Saunders said he's never seen anything like it in his 15 years of coaching in the NBA. He said Blatche let the team down and the forward probably won't play Wednesday night at Indiana.
Blatche had become the go-to scorer for the Wizards in recent weeks. Washington has lost 12 straight.
