The Hawks Ruined Another Great Moment In Paul Pierce Shit-Talking

Paul Pierce’s late three in Game 5, which put his Wizards up 81-80 over the Hawks with less than 10 seconds to play, was wasted by Nene’s inability to box out and prevent Al Horford’s game-winning layup. That’s a shame, because if the Wizards had managed to win, Pierce would have reached a new high point on his… » 5/14/15 11:12am 5/14/15 11:12am

Hawks Win After Paul Pierce's Wide-Open, Game-Tying Three Bricks Long

With just nine seconds left in the game, the Wizards were in as good of a position as they could have hoped to be. They were down the entire game, by as much as 12, continuously clawing back within a few points before the Hawks inevitably reopened the lead. But one final late fury brought the deficit down to three,… » 5/12/15 12:02am 5/12/15 12:02am

The Valiant Hawks Withstood Mighty Ramon Sessions, Can Do Anything

By now everybody knows the game plan for beating the Washington Wizards in the playoffs. We can neither stop nor contain the mighty Ramon Sessions, it goes. Ha ha ha, I mean, to even suggest such a thing could be done is a funny joke, even for the top-seeded team playing at home. Who can but dream of slowing his… » 5/06/15 11:22am 5/06/15 11:22am

The Washington Wizards Are Not Going To Win The NBA Finals

Last April, the first-seeded Indiana Pacers, who’d spent the season’s first few months crushing the league before returning to earth after the All-Star break, labored through a surprisingly tough seven-game series against a mediocre Atlanta Hawks team seemingly engineered to turn Indiana’s greatest strength (Roy… » 4/30/15 11:12am 4/30/15 11:12am

Hey Canada, What The Hell Happened To The Raptors?

The Wizards completed their four-game sweep of the Raptors yesterday evening in D.C. Sweeps aren’t all that uncommon in the first round of the NBA playoffs; what made this one notable, beyond Toronto having been the higher-seeded and favored team at the outset, is just how one-sided it was. The score was tied 43-43… » 4/27/15 10:55am 4/27/15 10:55am

The Wizards Are Figuring It Out, And The Raptors Aren't Good Enough

“That is a bad man, number 34.” Those are the words color commentator Doris Burke used to describe Paul Pierce’s game-sealing three-pointer against the Toronto Raptors last night. In just thirty seconds the Raptors cut an eight point deficit to three, and if the Wizards had come up empty, the Raptors would’ve had a… » 4/25/15 11:34am 4/25/15 11:34am

Kyle Lowry Is The Most Frustrated Man

Over the first two games of the Raptors-Wizards series, both played in Toronto, Kyle Lowry has played 60 minutes, scored 13 total points, hit five of 20 shots, and committed ten personal fouls. Those numbers—they are bad! Not at all coincidentally, the Wizards lead the series 2-0 heading back to D.C., and the Raptors… » 4/22/15 10:38am 4/22/15 10:38am
