We breakdown the reasons why Wizards nation should be backing the Indiana Pacers - or instead, the Atlanta Hawks. The Wizards play Saturday's winner in Game 1 of the second round on Monday.
Saturday's NBA schedule includes three Game 7's.
Some may have chuckled at Marcin Gortat when he said the Wizards could be a 50-win team when they were 9-9, but not now when he suggests the Pacers or Hawks won't beat them.
The Wizards still don't know who their second-round opponent will be, but they're already preparing as if they do. Video from Friday's practice here.
