Washington Wizards Coach Randy Wittman believes his team can go into any arena and win. Maybe it is time we start believing this Wizards team can at least go on to the Eastern Conference Finals.
According to WhoWins, when the road team grabs Game 1 of the conference semifinals they go on to win the series 57.9 percent of the time.
Those chances are in line with the numbers crunched by the folks over at Inpredictable.com, whose methodology gives the Wizards a 53.2 percent to move on.
@ngreenberg that is correct. Pacers are ranked a couple points higher, but offset by wiz with 1-0 lead and hca.

That’s not bad for a team whose preseason odds were 100-to-1 to win a championship.
