Wizards Dominate Pacers, Advance to Play 76ers in the First Round of the NBA Playoffs
The Washington Wizards made the most of their second opportunity to advance to the NBA Playoffs by dominating the Indiana Pacers tonight, 142-115.
The Wizards had an opportunity to make it to the playoffs as the 7 seed in the Eastern Conference on Tuesday night, but lost to the Celtics in the first play-in game.
Tuesday night’s loss may have been a blessing in disguise, as a win would have placed the Wizards in a first round series against the 2nd seeded Brooklyn Nets. Many experts feel a healthy Brooklyn Nets team is the best team in the Eastern Conference.
The Wizards will now move on to play the Philadelphia 76ers, who are highest seed in the Eastern Conference. The series starts in Philadelphia on Sunday, May 23 at 1pm. The game will be shown on TNT.
