WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The Washington Wizards seemed to have everything under control heading into the final 5 minutes of the fourth game of their second-round playoff series against the Pacers Sunday night.

They had a manageable six-point lead with only five minutes a 14 seconds to burn before tying the series 2-2 to head back to Indianapolis for a pivotal Game 5.

Then, in stepped the twisted dagger of fate, taking the deceptive form of lovable Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

Mark decided to check out the Wizards on the radio, giving play-by-play announcers Dave Johnson and Glenn Consor some love for their command of the broadcast.

It sure seemed innocent enough, but as often is the case with deception, his intentions were more duplicitous than what meets the eye.

Look again, via the Wizards Twitter timeline, as Cuban shoots the Wizards out of cloud 9 like an attack missile, sending the home team fluttering to earth into a pile of burnt rubble.

Everybody’s happy, waving their rally towels. Who needs a rally when the Wizards have a 6-point cushion?

Heck. They’d even extend that lead before everything was all said and done. The Wizards were on a mission.

Please mind the time stamps. It’s been exactly 11 minutes since Cuban planted his seed of destruction.

Obviously it wouldn’t make any sense to blame the Wizards loss on some sort of D.C. sports curse, because that would be admitting the outcome in the series was predetermined, and that’s just silly.

All due respect Mark, but you may have just cost the Wizards their entire season.

Thanks a lot.
