Washington Wizards head coach Randy Wittman has become a Internet punchline for his expressive faces and perceived ineptitude over the past few months. He got the last laugh, however, with a Wizards' sweep of the Toronto Raptors.
The Wizards dominated every facet of the contest in Game 4, demoralizing the Raptors with high-octane offense and suffocating defense. It all adds up to an eye-popping 125-94 victory and a trip to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
This marks the first playoff sweep for Washington in 33 years.
Key Number: 102
The Washington Wizards blitzed the Raptors from the opening tip, crossing the century mark in points in three quarters. Washington scored 102 points in the first 36 minutes, ripping the Raptors' defense to absolute shreds.
This was a true team effort in every sense of the phrases, as seven Washington players finished with double-digit points. Give the nod to Bradley Beal (23 points) for once asserting his place as one of the game's best shooting guards.
Not a single Raptors player will come out of this rout with anything positive to say about the performance, so no Toronto player gets an MVP pick on this night in D.C.
The Washington Wizards move on to the second round to face the winner of the Brooklyn Nets/Atlanta Hawks series. Toronto goes home for the offseason and tries to assess just what happened to them in this series.Back to the Washington Wizards Newsfeed
