Wizards

Paul Pierce's words unnerved the Toronto Raptors, but seemingly have had the opposite impact on the Brooklyn Nets, who are now tied 2-2 with the Atlanta Hawks in their first round series.
The Wizards didn't allow a repeat of what happened in a first-round series with the Bulls last season, which could've cost them vs. the Raptors.
Given the age of Washington's roster and how well Randy Wittman prepares for a seven-game series, getting at least of a full week of rest before playing in the second round should help.
