Magic Johnson

I enjoyed watching Paul Pierce hit big shots in the 4th qtr to give the Wizards a 3-0 series lead over the Raptors.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards starting lineup this series: 39 minutes, -16.8 net rating. Wall/Beal/Porter/Pierce/Gortat this series: 30 minutes, 39.2 net rating.

Sean Highkin

I feel like a lot of people are going to pick the Wizards to beat the Hawks in the second round and the Hawks are going to kill them.

John Schuhmann

Jarrett Jack's +/- = the Wizards.

Mike Prada

Jeff Teague and Dennis Schoreder have been brutal. If I’m Atlanta, I’m worried about them going against the Wizards’ pick and roll coverages

Mike Prada

Atlanta’s defense is swarming. It’s also the biggest reason I’m tempering expectations for the Wiz in the next round.

Great Playoff basketball in the association. Wizards, Cavs, Bulls, Hawks, GSW, Hou, and Spurs look FOCUSED!!!!!

David Aldridge

Must admit, I'm stunned. Thought Toronto would handle Washington w/ease, given the RS history the last two plus years. Wiz have been great.

Jose Luis Malo

Pierce de nuevamente Wizards ganan, Serie 3-0 vine.co/v/eW763waVpFA

John Schuhmann

Regular season: Raptors 3-0. Playoffs: Wizards 3-0.

Ric Bucher

Anyone have a metric that measures cojones -- you know, the kind Pierce and John Wall have to put the Wizards up 3-0?

Marc Stein

Eagerly awaiting @ESPNStatsInfo dispatches on all these 3-0 series leads. It's an epidemic. Props to Rockets, Wiz, Dubs, Cavs and Bulls

Payal Doshi

Paul Pierce drained dagger after dagger and was a pivotal veteran force to lead @Washington Wizards past @Toronto Raptors. (3-0 WAS series lead)

Julian Mozo

#NBA Otra serie que se pone 3-0. Los Wizards le ganaron 106-99 a los Raptors en Washington. Decepcionante serie de los canadienses.

I picked the @Washington Wizards to win the series, but didn't think it would be this dominant. #NBAPlayoffs #NBAonBTV #hoopjunkies

Eric Smith

.#raptors are down 3-0 in the series. They lose game 3 to the #Wizards 106-99. No team in #NBA history has come back to win when down 0-3

Michael Lee

Paul Pierce: "That's why I'm here." #wizards

Eric Smith

Wiz fan shown on Washington TV with #sweepthenorth sign

Mike Prada

Gotta beat the crowd to the Wizards’ locker room. RT @Todd_Dybas: Drake is leaving the building. He is being booed.

Eric Smith

100-94 wiz. 1:03 to go. Washington ball after timeout. #RTZ

Tom Halzack

Wizards about to go up 3-0. Otto Porter with career friendly break out in this series.

Eric Smith

100-92 wiz with 1:12 to play.

David Aldridge

There may not be a more important last three possessions for the Wizards this season, with Otto Porter/Paul Pierce combo platter.

Eric Smith

Raps pull within 2. Wiz drain back to back 3's -- porter, then Pierce. #raptors down 8 with 1:58 to play. 98-90. #RTZ (10-2 wiz run)

John Schuhmann

17 points on 9 possessions for the Wiz since Pierce came back to play the 4 in the 4th.

Amin Elhassan

Anyone watching this Wizards Raptors game on ESPN2 is missing real basketball on ESPN. To each his own I suppose

Michael Lee

OTTO spelled backward is OTTO #wizards

Eric Smith

3:02 to go, wiz up 4

Royce Young

Otto Porter has been pretty good this series. Wizards probably don't need Kevin Durant anymore.

Eric Smith

Ross wild 3pt in front of the wiz bench ties it at 88. Porter answers with a 3pt for the wiz. 91-88 wiz with 4:00 left #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Patterson with a 3, and then a word to the Wiz bench.

Eric Smith
