The Indiana Pacers need a win in Game 5 against the Washington Wizards and so far things have been going their way. But the Wizards got to the Conference Semifinals thanks to their spunk and their swagger — and they happen to be really good at basketball for stretches during a game.
Unfortunately for the Wiz, their spurts of brilliance has been more like lightning flashes against the Pacers but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been a wonder to see Washington just flat out ball. Bradley Beal gave us one of those moments when he not only learned to fly to the basket, but soared past Paul George with ease.
Washington isn’t winning a title this year, but it’s very clear that this won’t be a fluke playoff appearance by this young team.
