It went in and it’s just like, `You’ve got to be kidding me. That did NOT just happen’. I thought he got it off. I was getting ready for overtime. And then … you’re like, ‘Heeeeyyyy! All right! We’ll take it!’.
I was about to cry. I said, `Not again.’ … But the basketball gods were on our side.
I still feel, and I know our guys feel, we should have won this series.

Hey, these guys are fighting. I love it. They made one more play than us.

Carroll on Game 2:
We knew this was a game we had to win. It was kind of a funky game.
Bazenmore on Wizards:
It’s dangerous, man. Oh, their best player is not playing, so they don’t have a chance. But they still have a very dangerous team.
Sessions on team:
Just try to push the team, just like John does. It wasn’t just me. Everybody tried to step up.

I don’t think Game 4 was really that tough, like everybody was saying it was going to be.

We have that mindset that we’re not finished. We have that mindset that we’re an elite team in this league.

My adrenaline is through the roof right now. … I’m just enjoying the moment. I love playoff basketball. I love everything about it. At this point in my career, I’m savoring these moments, because I don’t know how many more of these moments I’m going to have.
Coach Casey on Pierce:
You’re not playing against chopped liver. Paul Pierce won a championship. He knows how to play.

That’s us. We’re not a two-man team.

They think that we’re some punks, they think they can push us around. But we’re not rolling.
On Wizards Game 3:
We’ve got to play like we’re down 0-2. Nothing changes. We can’t stop being aggressive.
Coach Wittman on Raptors leads series:
It’s hard winning four games in a series. And as you continue to move on, the harder it gets. Game 3 on Friday is going to be harder to play in than these first two games. It just gets that way as the series moves on.
It’s far from over. Our confidence is still high. All we’ve got to do is take it game by game.
The Nets wins 117-80. Lopez scores 26 points and nine rebounds, Jack scores 14 points. For the Wizards, Beal scores 24 points and Gortat scores a double-double (21 points, 16 rebounds). Coach Hollins:
Well, if we don’t keep it going, we’ll be at home. If we keep it going we’ll be in the playoffs. We win out, we’re in. That’s the beauty of it. We’re not worried about anybody else.
I think it’s easy when we’re not playing out the net, allowing teams to shoot a high percentage. It allows us to flow that much better on the offensive end.
We’re trying to move up to get home court, but like I always say, it doesn’t matter if we have home court because it’s going to be tough regardless. It’s embarrasing because this is a playoff team that just flat-out beat us, and we can’t do that three games away from the playoffs.
The Wizards beat the 76ers 106-93 76ers. Gortat scores a double-double (23 points and 14 rebounds), Beal scores 20 points and Wall scores 13 points and 15 assists. Smith scores 23 points and Canaan scores 18 points. Coach Wittman on Gortat’s performance:
Rolling to the basket instead of floating a little bit. That was really good because he’s got great hands, he can get to the basket. That was as good (a game) probably that he’s had from the standpoint of rolling out of there.
They were passing me the ball. I was doing the same thing I’m doing every single game.
Coach Brown on Wizard’s Performance:
And we got jumped. I think it’s a fantastic experience for our guys. We knew this was going to be the landscape. But it’s still hard to navigate.
The NBA fines Gortat $5,000 for violating the league’s anti-flopping policy. The flop occurred when Gortat was fighting with another player for rebound positioning when Gortat exaggerated a slight push by this other player and stumbled into the stanchion under the net. This is Gortat’s second flopping offense of the season.
