The Warriors swept the Pelicans.
The Cavaliers swept the Celtics.
The Wizards swept the Raptors.
What sets the Wizards apart from the Dubs and the Cavs?
WE WERE SUPPOSED TO LOSE OUR SERIES, LET ALONE SWEEP TORONTO!
IT'S THE FIRST TIME A #5 SEED SWEPT A #4 SEED IN THE FIRST ROUND SINCE THE BULLS SWEPT THE HEAT IN 2007!
THIS IS ALSO THE FIRST TIME THE WIZARDS HAVE ADVANCED TO THE SECOND ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS IN CONSECUTIVE YEARS SINCE 1979!

SB Nation NBA, the Bullets Forever crew, and I are all eating crow for our predictions. But we couldn't be any happier.
Just remember a few things.
1. All community guidelines (formal ones here and the refresher here) still apply.
2. If you use a GIF, please limit it to just one per comment. Also, please type up a subject line. Some people prefer not to look at comments in their expanded format.
Before I finish this post, congratulations to the Raptors for a good series, and for winning a second consecutive Atlantic Division title. Best of luck next season.
Now BF community, it's time to ... shake it off like ... Taylor? Even if you don't, just celebrate!
