Pierce leads Wizards past Raptors in OT in Game 1

TORONTO (AP) Paul Pierce scored five of his 20 points in overtime, Nene had 12 points and 13 rebounds, and the Washington Wizards beat the Toronto Raptors 93-86 on Saturday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.

Pierce hit a 3-pointer, his fourth of the game, to begin the extra session, further tormenting a Raptors team he eliminated with Brooklyn in last year's playoffs, then derided this week by saying, "I don't feel they have the `It' that makes you worried," in an interview with ESPN.

Bradley Beal scored 16, while John Wall and Kevin Seraphin each had 10 for the Wizards.
