This is why you heard so much about Raps wanting to try to steal David West from the Pacers. To be their Paul Pierce. They needed it, too


Wizards starting 5 have scored 82 points in this game. Wall: 14 Beal: 23 Pierce: 14 Nene: 10 Gortat: 21

Wizards keep it 100

Well, 102 to be specific. That's how many points Washington has through 3 quarters. Toronto? Just 70. There's still 12 minutes left in what has been a dismal series for the Raptors. Follow live

Nothing will be known for sure until MRI but word within Cavs team tonight is Kevin Love likely out a minimum of 2 weeks.

Wizards well on the way to sweep

It looks like Washington can put the passports away. Barring a miracle comeback, this series isn't headed back to Toronto. The Wizards lead by 26 with under 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Follow live

Can't believe what I'm seeing w/ TOR after how close they came in Game 7 vs Nets. WAS looks great but 2 me this is more about how bad TOR is

It's going down for real

And by "it," we mean "everything." The Wizards have made a trio of 3-pointers to open the 3rd quarter, extending their lead to 22 points. Follow live


ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

Wizards lead Raptors 66-50 at half, trying to complete a sweep-- Wizards shot 54% in first half, had 22 free throw attempts to Raptors' 7

Ball movement leading Wizards at half

The Raptors know that they're eliminated with a loss, right? Washington has 16 assists on 21 field goals, and if it weren't for 13 points off the bench from Lou Williams for Toronto, the Raptors would be in even worse shape than they are. The Wizards lead 66-50 at the half. Follow live

John Wall's fire is becoming my favorite thing to watch this postseason. Reminds me of Magic inspiring Byron Scott to play more aggressively

Clippers' Ekpe Udoh is always polite

After Matt Barnes spit on the court, teammate Ekpe Udoh grabbed a towel and cleaned up the mess. What else would you expect from an NBA player who hosts a book club on Twitter?


J.A. Adande @jadande

Only thing worse for TOR than Pierce daggering them out of the playoffs would be him cackling on the bench in a sweep-completing blowout
