So what teams in the Eastern Conference did the most to improve for the 2015-16 season?
With the intense NBA offseason cooling down, there is time for reflection on what the Washington Wizards accomplished and a chance to look at the road ahead.
There are more questions about the Wizards after Friday's 99-97 victory vs. the Miami Heat than there are answers.
Pick just about any segment of the fourth quarter, when the Wizards were outscored by 13 points by the Miami Heat, had seven turnovers and missed 8 of 11 shots, and it'll look the same.
As the Wizards look for answers, or a spark just about anywhere, Paul Pierce could find himself playing more at power forward.
