Isiah Thomas on Wall: even if the coach calls the play for you at the end of the game you gotta know that Pierce is hot & give it to Pierce

Mike Prada

This may be too harsh, but one reason the Pelicans' defense underachieves is that Davis isn't all the way there yet as a defender.

Mike Prada

The Pelicans' best lineup so far today didn't have either Anderson or Asik

Mike Prada

Pelicans have a problem. The game is way too fast for Asik and the Warriors can go small and negate Anderson.

Jorge Castillo

Humphries is healthy. Looks like Gortat’s early foul trouble changed things up a bit.

Ben Standig

Casey on Pierce: "It wasn't like he executed at the 4 some miraculous play to hurt us. It was offensive rebounding and he got it back."

Ben Standig

Casey says randomness off hustle plays (i.e. offensive boards) led to Pierce's 2Q outburst.

Mike Prada

Alexis Ajinca on Curry is ... not ideal

Mike Prada

Just caught up in this game. Asik getting roasted in p&r coverage. Warriors switching so many screens, which is confusing NO

Ben Standig

Wittman essentially saying Gortat's 2 early fouls led to scrapping rotation plan and Seraphin's minutes. Said Hump healthy.

Ben Standig

One thing that didn't change with the postseason: Wittman still not answering @Jorge Castillo's direct questions about, you know, the game.

Ben Standig

Beal to @Chris Miller on Pierce: "When he's talking, you might as well not say anything to him because he's in straight kill mode." #Wizards

Ben Standig

Beal to @Chris Miller on Pierce: "When he's talking, you might as well not saying anything to him because he's in straight kill mode."

Ben Standig

And Wall/Beal went 11 for 41.

Ben Standig

Otto often gave Wittman an excuse to sit him. Intensity lacked. Not today. Provided that wing D on DeRozan and hustle plays galore.

Ben Standig

Wizards win another road Game 1. Randy Wittman is a Wizard.

Rashad Mobley

Neither team will play that badly again....right?

Michael Lee

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

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.

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.

Ben Standig

Major fail if no reporter asks Pierce whether he punched Otto pre-game. Otto played with consistent purpose throughout.

Michael Lee

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

Ben Standig

Not even gonna say anything. #Otto

Mike Prada

Love seeing Otto Porter play well. A couple huge offensive rebounds in this OT. Pulling for the guy.

Jorge Castillo

One month ago, Otto Porter wasn't in the rotation. Now he's hitting floaters in OT in a playoff game.

Michael Lee

Paul Pierce. Rim Protector. #wizards

Jorge Castillo

He's been putting in work down low late in the game. twitter.com/BenStandig/sta…

Ben Standig

Nene's 13 rebounds his most since March 13 --- of 2013.

Ben Standig

Buckhantz going to lose his mind up in here with these 5-seconds counts.

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.

Mike Prada

Whoever ran off LouWill (couldn't see) got away with a big mistake

Michael Lee

It's starting to become a #wizards Game 1 tradition. John Wall & Bradley Beal struggle. A 37-year-old from LA & Nene bail them out.

Ben Standig

Big Brazilian with the big jam. Also, Nene's second double-double since Jan. 9.

Mike Prada

Finally, some Wall/Pierce two-man action.

Ben Standig

Paul Pierce sinks a 3. Stunning.

Chris Miller

Last three @Washington Wizards games have needed overtime. Wiz blew a 15 point lead. #WizardsTalk

Michael Lee

That last shot of regulation was screaming for Bradley Beal or Paul Pierce. Really, just Paul Pierce. #wizards

Jorge Castillo

No Lowry for the Raptors. Wizards going with Nene at center. Wall/Beal/Porter/Pierce/Nene.

Michael Lee

Great D by Otto Porter. Prevented Terrence Ross from leaving feet & batted away ball with left hand. Game still going to OT for some reason

Mike Prada

Would have been sadly poetic if the Raptors beat the Wizards on the same backdoor lob play the Wiz used to beat Orlando earlier this year

Jorge Castillo

That would've been catastrophic. OT.

Mike Prada

Wall seems angry at Gortat, but can't tell if it's because he didn't screen or because he shouldn't have screened.

Rashad Mobley

Not a bad shot, just a poor play call by the Wizards but that's the exact same quarter-ending play we've seen all season

Ben Standig

Unreal. 47 minutes of great planning wasted by 1 min of standing still and hoping a long-two falls.

Michael Lee

Did Randy Wittman really draw up a play for John Wall to dribble the ball for 19 seconds & shoot? #wizards

Jorge Castillo

That was, um, not a good play out of a timeout. But Wittman and Wall mad about somebody else not doing what they were supposed to.

Mike Prada

That was entirely predictable

Ben Standig

This is why Pierce is here. Give him the shot.

Jorge Castillo

Vasquez might've broken the shimmy record there.

Ben Standig

So many good tweaks and adjustments from the norm by Wittman this game. Yet the slow-down, end of quarter iso plays that never worked stays.

Michael Lee

Greivis Vasquez gives the wiggle, wiggle, wiggle after hitting huge 3 to tie game at 82. #terps fans conflicted right now #wizards

Mike Prada

Pelicans-Warriors starts in 30 minutes. Read my team previews PELICANS: sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/… WARRIORS: sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/16/…

Ben Standig

Hated that possesion for Wiz more than Tandler hates memocking ILB to Skins.

Jorge Castillo

Greivis Vasquez doing it for Montrose Christian.

Mike Prada

Otto back in for Gooden.

Jorge Castillo

Call overturned after long delay. Wizards ball.

Ben Standig

Based on this lengthy delay I'm assuming refs will say Dez Bryant didn't make a catch.

Jorge Castillo

Think that's Wizards ball.

Rashad Mobley

Gooden missed that shot, but he was wide open after the ball went down low to Gortat first. The Wizards should run that play again

Mike Prada

Gortat is always going to throw that pass out. The issue is putting Gooden in his line of sight.

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal waving goodbye to Kyle Lowry. Oh boy. This series might turn out to be really fun. vine.co/v/eztvVUFZjKK (@raptorsrepublic)

Zac Boyer

Holtby said he's past the point of being contagious. Was on the ice for about 45 minutes today.

Zac Boyer

Holtby said his malady has passed, doesn't see any reason why he won't be able to play tomorrow in Game 3.

Ben Standig

Real MVP for Wizards? Patrick Patterson kidnapper. 0 for 2, zero points in 2H.

Mike Prada

Gortat went to one side, Wall went to the other.

Michael Lee

Nice time for John Wall to attack the rim #wizards

Jorge Castillo

Kyle Lowry fouls out on Beal's jumper. Lowry = 7 pts on 2/10, 8r, 4a.

Mike Prada

Kyle Lowry just fouled out, which might not be great for the Wizards.

Chris Miller

Correction: Since I said Sweet Lou only had 2 points has exploded for 10 in the fourth. I'll keep my mouth shut from now on. #WizardsTalk

Michael Lee

This game is going the way you thought this series would go: 2 teams tripping & falling over each other 'til the bitter end #wizards

Michael Lee

#raptors on 16-3 run. Lou wILL & DeMar DeRozan have combined for 11

Jorge Castillo

Lou Williams bringing it. Wizards probably shouldn't leave him open.

Mike Prada

Bradley Beal was staring at the bench on that curl. What a horrible breakdown.

Rashad Mobley

Gortat is doing the dirty work in the paint, someone should get him the ball at least once.

Mike Prada

Not a coincidence that Toronto's played better without Lowry. He was forcing it far too much.

Ben Standig

Pierce huddles the team and tugs on jerseys.

Jorge Castillo

Williams hits a huge 3 but Amir Johnson called for the illegal pick on Wall. Big call.

Mike Prada

Why are the Wizards taking 14 seconds to do something????

Mike Prada

Great read by Otto, saw that pass coming all the way.

Ben Standig

Wizards have zero interior D going on now. Raps scoring in the paint. Marcin Gortat still hasn't played in 4Q against Raps this season.

Jorge Castillo

Wall and Beal in Game 1 vs. Bulls last year: 7/25. Game 1 today: 8/28.

Michael Lee

Kevin Seraphin is trying to get PAID this summer... #wizards

Mike Prada

Gortat got off the bench a possession too late.

Ben Standig

Ramon Sessions hits the deck with impact of QB getting sacked. His teammates rush over to help him up...

Mike Prada

Lowry's been horrible.

Ben Standig

Witt fell in love with random units in 4Qs. Sometimes stuck with them too long. This group doing work, however... twitter.com/Todd_Dybas/sta…

Jorge Castillo

What the Raptors need right now. http://t.co/27ushBuWfB

Michael Lee

Kyle Lowry used #PaulPiercetheory on Otto Porter. KL hit Otto on drive, made Otto mad & Otto slapped Jonas's shot into front row #wizards
