This just in: The lineup with Paul Pierce and Otto Porter playing at forward plus John Wall, Bradley Beal and Marcin Gortat is doing work. The statistical proof beyond the 3-0 series lead.
No NBA team has ever come back to win a playoff series after falling behind three games to nothing -- everyone knows that.
Speaking yet even more truth, Paul Pierce put the Wizards' 46-win regular season and No. 5 seed, which was a disappointment to many, into perspective.
Former Wizards star Gilbert Arenas has been very timely and expeditious with his posts about the Toronto Raptors after their losses in this first-round series.
As it turns out, the "it" factor that Paul Pierce said the Toronto Raptors lacked before this first-round series began belongs to him even at 37.
