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

Game 4 could be Aldridge's last as Blazer

With Portland on the verge of playoff elimination, LaMarcus Aldridge's free agency status is on the horizon. But Damian Lillard isn't concerned: “I don’t have any reason to believe why he wouldn’t be back here." Teammates aware

Raptors have a Sixers-like quality

The Wizards shot 71.4 percent in the first quarter, Washington's second best shooting performance in an opening frame this season. Only the 76ers allowed the Wizards a hotter first this season (77.8 percent shooting on Apr. 8).

Wizards starters start hot

The Wizards didn't get a single point from their bench in the first quarter, but they're probably just fine with that after a 36-point outburst from the starters in the frame. Washington scored 13 points in transition and leads Toronto by 14. Follow live


A no-good, very bad series for Kyle Lowry

Forget assist-to-turnover ratio; Lowry is struggling with his assist-to-fouls ratio against the Wizards. So far in the series, Lowry has 16 personal fouls and just 15 assists.
