    The Wizards are exactly what the fragile Barneys needed in the 1st round. 4-0 sweep.

    ill give the raptors the benefit of the doubt here and give them this series in 7. but i would not be shocked at all this ends up as an upset. with wall not getting hurt this team isn't ending up as an 8th seed. toronto has their work cut out for them on this side of the bracket

    So...Washington is an awful team, probably the worst in the playoffs and it may not be close. However, they have had a tendency all year to knock off good teams while losing to the dregs of the league. Who knows? Maybe they find a spark to carry them.

    But, I think Toronto sweeps them in 4. Wizards need to blow up whatever they're doing there. Just doesn't work.

    It's a bit strange how it hasn't worked. A comparison could be made with Portland and Toronto; 2 fantastic guards, solid wings. Yet Portland and Toronto are always in the thick of things, while Washington is mostly an afterthought.

    Don't forget to place your "Raptors lose game 1" bets. It's a tradition unlike any other.

    Their supporting squad is honestly awful and Wall and Beal aren't meshing like Toronto or Portland.

    Raptors intro was nice, though 'North over everything' as a slogan, really? I thought we had some pretty bad ones over the years, like Get Red but this is pretty bad. Just odd they didn't use any of the raptor dinosaur logo shredding / tearing the ball, which would make it perfect. As you can see, I'm big into intro videos and such :) this series will be over soon. I would've picked Raps in 4, but Wiz might take one game.
