I enjoyed watching Paul Pierce hit big shots in the 4th qtr to give the Wizards a 3-0 series lead over the Raptors.
Wizards starting lineup this series: 39 minutes, -16.8 net rating. Wall/Beal/Porter/Pierce/Gortat this series: 30 minutes, 39.2 net rating.
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.
Jarrett Jack's +/- = the Wizards.
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
Atlanta’s defense is swarming. It’s also the biggest reason I’m tempering expectations for the Wiz in the next round.
Wizards in the series: +25. Wizards w/ Pierce & Porter together on the floor: +25.
Great Playoff basketball in the association. Wizards, Cavs, Bulls, Hawks, GSW, Hou, and Spurs look FOCUSED!!!!!
The Truth on Wiz struggles during season: "Young guys ... they like to have good times on the road, they go out, they party sometimes"
The Truth on why Wiz struggled during season: "Young guys ... they like have good times on the road, they go out, they party sometimes"
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.
Regular season: Raptors 3-0. Playoffs: Wizards 3-0.
Anyone have a metric that measures cojones -- you know, the kind Pierce and John Wall have to put the Wizards up 3-0?
These are not your regular season's Wizards. 106 points on 96 possessions.
Wizards 106, Raptors 99. Washington's up 3-0 in the series. http://t.co/0qIWzv9taE
Lowry pulls TOR Within 4. Pierce nails 2/2 ft. Wiz up 6. Lowry hits 3pt. Wiz up 3. Pierce nails 3pt as shot clock expires. :16.3 wiz up 6
Wizards about to go up 3-0. Otto Porter with career friendly break out in this series.
100-92 wiz with 1:12 to play.
There may not be a more important last three possessions for the Wizards this season, with Otto Porter/Paul Pierce combo platter.
17 points on 9 possessions for the Wiz since Pierce came back to play the 4 in the 4th.
Anyone watching this Wizards Raptors game on ESPN2 is missing real basketball on ESPN. To each his own I suppose
3:02 to go, wiz up 4
Otto Porter has been pretty good this series. Wizards probably don't need Kevin Durant anymore.
Wiz up 1 now. 5:14
Patterson with a 3, and then a word to the Wiz bench.
