Beal just drained a 3 from a spot (right wing) I watched him miss plenty during pregame warmups.

First shot by Gortat and of course he makes it.

New intro video for the Wizards. Less Wale.

Ben Standig

About to make lineup announcements and I'd say we have a half full-ish situation.Those here are good to go.

Jorge Castillo

Air Canada Centre was packed a half hour before tip. I'd say Verizon is like half full right now. If that.

Zac Boyer

So seven people just walked into a Courtyard Marriott thinking it was a full-service restaurant...

Mike Prada

Surprised it took so long to put Dirk on Ariza.

Ben Standig

Raptors entered the court area. Boos followed.

Jorge Castillo

Red, white, or blue shirts waiting for fans at their seats. http://t.co/uY8onGxueM

Jorge Castillo

Raptors starting Amir Johnson over Hansbrough. Starters: Lowry, DeRozan, Ross, Johnson, Valanciunas.

Mike Prada

Will the analytics folks sing the praises of Hack-A-Capela?

Jorge Castillo

Wizards starters: Wall, Beal, Pierce, Nene, Gortat.

Ben Standig

Same starting for Wizards: Wall, Beal, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. Blair and Temple inactive.

When you’re worried about your chances because Raymond Felton might be injured...

Craig Stouffer

Late on this, but felt very lucky this week as my professional life with #DCU collided with @MomMadeFoods on #EarthDay. Crazy and so cool.

Zac Boyer

And, from earlier, Tom Wilson shrugged off his fight and the Islanders' irritation tactics in Game 5: wtim.es/1E0ZrK0

A night in the spotlight was about as uncomfortable a feeling as Evgeny Kuznetsov could experience: wtim.es/1HyxHQK

Ben Standig

Josh Hamilton is the Manchurian Candidate. twitter.com/SportsCenter/s…

Ben Standig

All Wizards are good to go health wise except Temple.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards been talking about slow starts being a problem. My 2 cents: Start Pierce at the 4 and have Nene come off the bench as backup center.

Michael Lee

This picture makes me think even if Wizards had drafted Steph Curry they would have traded him for Mitch Richmond. http://t.co/2l5dlJSjzK

Zac Boyer

Kuznetsov didn't want to talk about his Game 5. “Lots of people who love talk about hockey, and that’s their job. I just doing my job.”

Andrew Sharp

It took me three envelopes and two stamps to successfully address and mail a letter today. Most stressful experience I've had in weeks.

Zac Boyer

No changes to PP units either, but again, that's been fairly constant.

Zac Boyer

Also, orange towels on the seats today. Better look for Nassau Coliseum than the blue. Doesn't blend in.

Understandably, looks like no changes to Capitals' lines in practice.

Based on what could be faulty research, the Wizards have never swept a 7-game series. They last swept in '78 but that was best-of-3 vs. ATL.

Pierce on Wall: "Top to bottom, he’s the best PG. You talk abt Steph Curry, the amazing things he’s done...but I just look at overall game."

Michael Lee

Randy Wittman, subject of some funny memes, laughs back with 2-0 lead vs TOR & best ever road playoff record wapo.st/1Gq3T8T #wizards

Jorge Castillo

Pierce said he's playing at 225 pounds, the lightest he's been since college. "I got to stay off the Roscoe’s 'til the summer."

Jorge Castillo

Beal said he was at the Caps game last night. "There’s nothing like the playoffs and I love this city because they support all their teams."

Chris Miller

Which @Washington Wizards player has been a pleasant surprise during the first two games against @Toronto Raptors? Get involved @CSNWizards #WizardsTalk

Mike Prada

(My guess too is that Randy Wittman would say the same thing. But that’s just a guess)

Mike Prada

I may just be burdened by 30 yrs of history, but maybe let’s keep the “passive aggressive pixels” trope on hold until the series is over.

Some mentions for Nash, Stockton, AI. All great. I would not 100% take them over Curry. Recency bias, maybe, but... twitter.com/BenStandig/sta…

Capitals, Islanders, Game 6, Saturday, 3 p.m., NBC, Nassau Coliseum, hockey, fun

Ben Standig

Chuck really failing analytics 101 right now.

Mike Prada

Pelicans clear out for AD like that a lot. Bogut just played good defense. Wish we could say that without killing coach decisions.

Ben Standig

Other than Magic, MJ & Kobe I'm struggling to think of guards from last 30 years I'd 100% take over Curry. Isiah and peak DWade, maybe.

Mike Prada

They ran this play for Eric Gordon. It’s a good play, but the Warriors defended it well. streamable.com/8x94?t=4.6

Ben Standig

Eric Gordon just went Swaggy P

Mike Prada

Davis has to get that rebound.

Mike Prada

They have to call Bogut for a foul for holding Davis

Chris Miller

This Spicy Curry is piping hot in NOLA

Ben Standig

Yeah, Curry night have been fouled on that 3. Maybe. Not sure you can tell. Subtle. twitter.com/DeAntae/status…

Mike Prada

Remember when the Pelicans tried to foul when these two teams played in April, but the ref didn’t call it? sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/7/8…

OMG!!!!!!! that shoot back @Stephen Curry was AMAZIN

Zac Boyer

Predators win, making it a near certainty Game 6 between Capitals and Islanders will be a 3 p.m. start on Saturday.

Mike Prada

Can’t go for that pump fake

Mike Prada

The one problem with switching everything and playing Cunningham/Anderson is defensive rebounding. GSW onto something crashing like this

Ben Standig

The Pelicans need a big man who can stop the Warriors from crashing the glass. Oh, wait...

Mike Prada

New Orleans’ switches have been on point. Also Curry should have taken that 35 footer.

Zac Boyer

The Pelicans just aren’t guarding Iguodala.
