The key to getting out the second round for the Wizards is to keep everything the same, and that includes blocking out the sudden praise and not carrying themselves as favorites.
By the numbers, the Wizards are in trouble against the Indiana Pacers. Not that Washington feels that way heading into Monday's second round series opener in Indianapolis.
The top-seeded Indiana Pacers closed out their seven-game series with the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
John Wall talks with Chris Miller about the upcoming series against the Pacers.
Wall notes the Wizards didn't play well in Indiana this season, "but the playoffs is a different story."
This is probably the way it should be for the Wizards if they're to get full respect around the NBA.
