If empty seats are any indication, the Washington Wizards are just as big of a surprise in their own city as they are to the rest of the NBA.
Ticket prices to see the Washington Wizards host their first playoff game since 2008 are skyrocketing in advance of Friday night’s Game 3 against the Chicago Bulls.
Michael Wilbon believes the winner of the Wizards-Bulls series should advance all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals, he told the Junkies on Tuesday.
They are the 19th NBA team to win the first two on the road in a seven-game set, and all but three (1969 Warriors, 1994 Suns, 2005 Rockets) went on to capture the series.
John Wall says the Wizards were “trying to leave a statement” in taking a 2-0 series lead over the Bulls on Tuesday, and his message to skeptical fans: “Show us some support … we’re serious right now.”
Bradley Beal came on strong late in regulation to finish with 26 points, Nene scored six of his 17 in overtime and the Washington Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 101-99 Tuesday to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.
The Wizards shifted the balance of power with a win in Game 1 of their series with the Bulls, but that could be short-live, one NBA expert for CBS Sports, Matt Moore, predicts: “Bulls to Blow Out Washington.”
The Chicago Bulls trail the Washington Wizards 1-0 in their first-round playoff series after blowing a 13-point lead in the opener and will try to pull even on Tuesday.
Nene dominated with 24 points, Trevor Ariza scored 18, and the Washington Wizards rallied from 13 down to beat the Chicago Bulls 102-93 in their playoff opener on Sunday night.
John Wall talks as fast as he plays. That makes him entertaining to be around, even when the ball gets thrown out of bounds or when the sentences come out a bit funky.
