Wizards struggle in home elimination games
For as cruel as the ending of Friday’s Game 6 was for the Washington Wizards — their hopes dashed by a Paul Pierce three-pointer that came just a few milliseconds too late — the 94-91 loss was also fitting.
Seven times now, the Wizards/Bullets have taken their homecourt for a playoff elimination game and come up short by a combined 46 points, making for a 6.6 average margin of defeat.
