For the Wizards this is almost too good to be true.
The Wizards and Bulls will play a best-of-seven game series to open the NBA Playoffs. They met three times during the regular season.
No one is eager to play the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs because they're one of the NBA's hottest teams, they play grind-it-out defense and Tom Thibodeau is their coach.
Everything broke the right way for the Wizards, who beat the Boston Celtics and had Brooklyn Nets lose Wednesday, to jump to the No. 5 seed on the final day of the regular season.
With one day remaining on the NBA calendar, we still don't know whether the Wizards will enter the playoffs as the fifth, sixth or seventh seed.
