Big night for Poland. @Marcin Gortat and the Wizards get a Game 1 victory and Fonfara is the first to stop Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Mike Prada

I'm honored that the Wizards were the subject of Brian Shaw's pregame scouting report rap. sbnation.com/2015/4/18/8450…

Jeff Zillgitt

From Toronto, @MikeBohnMMA has the lowdown on Paul Pierce's big game and Wizards' Game 1 victory vs. Raptors: usat.ly/1HFe8oH

Michael Lee

Best part of Paul Pierce's response to Masai Ujiri is that he doesn't even know how to pronounce his name: "Typical Uri." #wizards

Kevin Seraphin

Way to take the game 1in Toronto !! Need to stay focus a humble for game 2 #NBAplayoffs #kslife @Washington Wizards #dcrising

Adi Joseph

I don't see much bemoaning of the level of play this quarter after all of it in the Raptors-Wizards game. This is ugly.

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal on waving to Kyle Lowry after coercing Lowry into sixth foul on late and-one: "I said, ‘Bye bye.’ He had six fouls." #wizards

Royce Young

Wizards become the 17th team to win a playoff game in overtime shooting less than 40 percent from the field. cbsprt.co/1G51sFQ

Jorge Sierra

Paul Pierce leads Wizards to overtime Game 1 win over Raptors dlvr.it/9S11kz

Jorge Sierra

Wizards take Game 1 of the only playoff series with no championship contenders.

Tom Ziller

Washed the taste of Wiz-Raps right out of our mouth.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Los Wizards, especialistas de visitantes. Han ganado 6 de últimos 7 fuera de casa. En los últimos playoffs terminaron 5-1 a domicilio.

Alejandro Perez

La serie Toronto-Washington empezó como se preveía, pareja. Ganaron los Wizards de visitante y en suplementario 93-86. Paul Pierce, 20 pts.

Simone Sandri

Non basta l'X Factor Vasquez, Washington tira con il 39% dal campo ma basta e avanza con i confusionari Raptors...1-0 Wiz

Julian Mozo

#NBA Golpean los Wizards en Canadá: 93-86 tras un suplementario en el q Toronto anotó 4 pts. Los Raptors están 0-7 en 1º juegos de playoffs.

Sean Highkin

Raptors-Wizards was the Black Eyed Peas of playoff games.

Tim Bontemps

Ugly game, but terrific win for the Wizards. Paul Pierce is going to (deservedly) have plenty to say after this one.

Chuck Swirsky

Tough tough loss. Guard play not good Wiz ate the offensive glass

John Schuhmann

Final - Wizards: 93 points on 96 possessions Raptors: 86 points on 98 possessions

Eric Smith

Sloppy day for both teams. TOR hammered on glass 61-48. Raps big Q4 comeback squashed by Wiz 11-4 edge in OT. Wiz win 93-86 & up 1-0

Michael Lee

Haters gonna hate, but this victory improves Randy Wittman's road playoff record to 6-1 #wizards

Royce Young

Wizards 91 Raptors 86. Wizards lead series 1-0. Let’s just move on. http://t.co/UPWQ3C5UbU

Jorge Castillo

Wizards take Game 1, 93-86 in overtime. Wizards now 6-1 on the road in the playoffs going back to last year.

John Schuhmann

Wizards are now 6-1 on the road over the last two postseasons. Have won 7 of their last 8 playoff road games, going back to '08.

Zach Lowe

Took Raps too long to realize that if they were going to stay big vs Wiz small lineups, needed their 2nd big to guard Porter -- not Pierce

Lang Greene

Wiz-Raps G1: Obligatory Ujiri cuss. Wall, Beal, Lowry, DeMar no-showed. #QuickerThanGossip. Vasquez shimmy. Pierce > Father Time. Wiz win.

Jorge Castillo

The Wizards are about to win a playoff game in which John Wall and Bradley Beal are shooting a combined 11 for 41.

Fernando Martin

Wizards se va a llevar el 1º. Toronto no ha anotado tras 4 minutos d prórroga. Partido feo, a ver si se sueltan en los siguientes

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan dunk is the first Raptors score in OT. Took them 4:30 and 8 shots to get on the board. Wiz by 5, 29.8 left.

Eric Smith

Raps miss 3PT...get off. reb...swing ball...results in DeRozan open dunk down main street. :29.8 sec left. Wiz timeout. TOR down 89-84

Michael Lee

Should we be more upset with Greivis Vasquez for making this game last another 5 minutes? #wizards

Jose Luis Malo

Que buen juego. Wizards casi lo estropea. Otto Porter demuestra que no fue un mal pick de Draft (pero casi)

Eric Smith

TOR has still not scored in OT. And they've had their chances. Wiz :36.5 sec away from stealing home court and taking a 1-0 series lead.

Zach Lowe

Took the Wiz just a bit to figure out if Lou is guarding Wall, just ISO and let him drive. May have to moth-ball the Beal crunch-time PNRs

Mark Heisler

Pierce is right, #Raptors didn't have 'it.' Unfortunately, #Wizards weren't overflowing w/'it' either. Looks like what it is, No. 4-5 seeds

Mike Wise

Paul Pierce should get coaching salary on top of player check. He's walked Wizards through this clankfest of a road playoff win. #wizards

Eric Smith

Another good look for Lou from 3PT...he misses...Raps can't get off. reb. Wiz come back...Porter in lane...bucket. :36.5 sec, 89-82 Wiz

Michael Lee

Paul Pierce. Rim Protector. #wizards

Ryan Wolstat

Rebounding issues: Valanciunas is good at it but can’t guard the Wizards so can’t play. Casey won’t play James Johnson. Fin.

Eric Smith

TOR 0/4 FG in Overtime. Wiz 2/7 (Pierce 3PT and Nene dunk). #Raptors :20 sec timeout. TOR down 87-82 w/ 1:09 left. #Wizards #RTZ

Jorge Castillo

Earlier this week, the Wizards played in a double OT game that didn't crack 90 after 1st OT. They might make history today.

Eric Smith

Lou got a good look at a 3PT ... missed. TOR stills scoreless in OT. Wall misses lay up...ANOTHER off. reb for Wiz. 1:09 left TOR ball

Howard Chen

These #Wizards offensive rebounds... Toronto still looking for their first points of OT.
