The Wizards have nothing to play for but the Pacers certainly do.

Analyzing the play that doomed the Wizards in Wednesday's 103-101 loss to Indiana.

The Wizards won ugly against the depleted Pacers on Wednesday.

The backup big man wants to send a message to the team that eliminated Washington from last season's playoffs: "If you’re going to beat us you’re going to have to leave some blood on the ground."

The Wizards shot just 31.6 percent in the fourth quarter and missed their last seven three-point attempts in defeat.

Join the discussion as the Wizards aim to keep their season alive in Game 6 at Verizon Center.

The veteran forward has tallied 15 points and eight boards in Games 4 and 5 after not playing in five of previous eight playoff games.

The Wizards haven't won a second-round playoff game at home in 35 years but John Wall wants the team to end the skid in Tuesday's Game 6.

If the Wizards hope to win Tuesday, they can't afford another second half like Game 4, when they had zero fast-break points.

The Wizards' 85-63 loss to Indiana on Friday marked the second time this season they've been held under 70 points by the Pacers.
