The Wizards took Game 1 in Indiana on Monday night, beating the Pacers 102-96. It was the way they won, however, that made it so impressive.
If forced to select one player the Wizards-Pacers second round series hinges on, the easy call is Indiana's Roy Hibbert.
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.
With the exception of Trevor Booker, the bench didn't provide the same offensive punch in their first-round playoff series with the Chicago Bulls.
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.
