Wizards-Raptors Preview

(AP) -- Paul Pierce threw the first punch before the series by stating in an interview that the Toronto Raptors don't have "the 'It'" to worry him.

He landed another by letting his play do the talking while leading the Washington Wizards to an overtime victory in Game 1. Now, Pierce has the Raptors discussing how they plan to stop the veteran heading into Tuesday night's Game 2 in Toronto.

"I haven't seen many people talk their way into winning a game," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "If that's the way he feels, that's fine. Paul is a great player. His game speaks for itself."
