In case you haven't heard, the NBA playoffs are starting Saturday. In two months we'll know who will be crowned NBA champion. Why wait.
TORONTO -- The consensus among the Wizards, despite their inability to beat the Toronto Raptors this season, is that this series is theirs to lose.
Sure, John Wall experienced the NBA playoffs for the first time last season. That doesn't mean the new car smell has worn off now that the Wizards are headed back to the postseason.
With the Cleveland Cavaliers beginning with all of their starters except LeBron James, the Wizards were in position to win an overtime game after losing in double-overtime the previous night.
