I cannot argue the earlier season games; the 2-1 post Rudy Gay seems to me the most relevant.
The Wizards did start slow.. but look how they finished.
Given that quote unquote 'the Heat step back' I would suggest the Wizard gain in that division and therefore in the conference. Especially with all the bigs they added to the back court of BBeal/Wall.
<< I just not sure what adding those bigs mean. Is Nene done? Is this desperation or exasperation? Will it be a chemistry issue for minutes ?>>
In theory - on paper - I would put the Wizards with the Raptors on the cusp of top 4 east.
