    TORONTO,ON - APRIL 18: Paul Pierce #34 of the Washington Wizards drives to the basket past Amir Johnson #15 of the Toronto Raptors during game one of their NBA Eastern Conference quarterfinal playoffs at the Air Canada Centre on April 18, 2015 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    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.

    Amir Johnson scored 18 points and DeMar DeRozan had 15 for the Raptors, who have yet to win the opening game of a first-round series in seven postseason appearances.

    Toronto hosts Game 2 on Tuesday night.
