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.
The WIzards are a confident squad and Bradley Beal feels it.
He spoke with reporters after the game and talked about how defense was the key. Why?
The Wizards are in the postseason for the first time since 2008, but the journey wasn't easy.
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.
