After a massive Saturday of headliner sporting events, the Wizards and Hawks took center stage early Sunday afternoon for Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinals. Folks took notice as Washington once again claimed road victory in the opening game of a series.

Randy Wittman is out coaching all these other coaches by default. Its magnificent to watch.

As for the Wizards, they largely went radio silent immediately after the game, other than their social media guru.
