Wizards made Raptors look bad while remaking themselves

The Washington Wizards didn’t make an adjustment in the first round of the NBA playoffs; they created an entirely new identity.

Wizards sweep listless Raptors

For a team that won 49 games during the regular season, the Toronto Raptors were nowhere to be found during their humiliating four-game series against the Washington Wizards. Washington defeated Toronto by 31 points on Sunday evening, completing a ridiculous four-game sweep that saw John Wall and company outscore the over-matched Raptors by a total of 56 points.

Raptors-Wizards: The taming of Valanciunas, by Gortat, Nene

The Washington Wizards have done a lot of things right during their two-game obliteration of the Toronto Raptors. John Wall has been a monster in transition, picking apart Toronto’s defense en route to averaging 12.5 assists per game. With some beefy minutes totals, Otto Porter has emerged as a legitimate NBA player. Bradley Beal shook off a rough Game 1 outing in Game 2 ...

Wizards' Bradley Beal on Raptors: 'They think that we're some punks'

For a 2-0 first-round series, the Wizards and Raptors sure are generating a lot of fireworks.

Scott Van Pelt zings Colin Cowherd with John Wall tweet

Colin Cowherd has spent the better part of five years – FIVE YEARS! – holding one 30 second dance over John Wall’s head like some kind of modern day scarlet letter.  Amazingly enough, he brought it up again today.  This guy just doesn’t quit.

NBA Film Study: Wizards vs. Raptors

Saturday’s Game 1 between the Washington Wizards and the Toronto Raptors was an old-fashioned, slow-paced, heavy-defensed playoff brawl. The Wizards won by the low, low score of 93–86, and that was after five minutes of overtime. Both teams shot under 40 percent from the field.  Something’s off about this being such a low-scoring game, though. While the Wizards were fifth...
