As the wiz kept the gap open in the final minutes of their win over the Pacers tonight, attention was diverted to the score of the Cavs v Sixers game. In order for the wizards to overtake Cleveland for the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference, they needed to win out (tonight vs. Pacers, Wednesday at Orlando), and needed the Cav’s to lose out (tonight at Sixers, Wednesday vs Detroit). In the final seconds of both games, it looked like Philly had pulled out with a one point lead after a failed drive and put back by Lyndon B. Johnson and Devin Brown respectively.

In celebration, Philly headed back to their locker room, presumably amongst a flurry of High Fives and various expletives, while I headed to my computer to happily blog about the increased likelihood that the Wiz could overtake Cleveland for the fourth seed and enter our third straight first-round against them, this time with Home-Field advantage.

FOOLED YOU, said the referee’s, Some idiot named Dalembert fouled Brown with 0.00001 seconds on the clock and after reviewing the play throughout the majority of Comcast SportsNite, they asked everybody back to the floor so Brown could shoot two free throws. He made both and the Wiz are stuck as the 5th seed against the 4th seed Cleveland Cavaliers for the third year straight.
