The Agony of Defeat


I went to the Wizards-Cavs game last night with, naturally, low expectations. Take away a team’s two best players and make it match up with a hot, slightly superior opponent and, well, losing is what you expect. But then, waddaya know — the Wizards were winning heading into the fourth quarter. A thrilling upset! A great moral victory! Revenge for last spring’s playoff series! But then, no, things returned to normal and the Cavs one. I’m really not looking forward to watching the least-thrilling playoff series of the year.
