Paul Pierce responds to Raptors' haters with great performance
Sunday April 19th, 2015

The Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards continue their series on Tuesday, following Washington's 93-86 overtime victory in Game 1 Saturday.

The Wizards finished second in the Southeast at 46-36, while the Raptors won the Atlantic Division with a 49-33 record.

All five Washington starters average more than 11 points per game. Point guard John Wall led the Eastern Conference with 10 assists per game and scored a team-high 17.6 points per game.

DeMar DeRozan is Toronto's leading scorer with 20.1 points per game, while point guard Kyle Lowry averages 17.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

Wizards forward Paul Pierce ruffled feathers in Toronto with some smack talk before the start of the series. 

"We haven't done particularly well against Toronto, but I don't feel they have the 'It' that makes you worried,'' Pierce told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan. "There isn't a team I look at in the Eastern Conference that makes me say, 'They are intimidating, we don't have a chance.'"
