Drew Gooden told me today the @WashWizards goal was to get at least 25 points a quarter. 1st qtr mission accomplished. #wizbulls #dcrising

Mike Prada

The Bulls NEVER screw up their transition coverages like this.

Mike Prada

Bradley Beal beating Kirk Hinrich to a loose ball. I’m honestly stunned.

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal showing a little hang time on that layup. Sought the contact, maintained control in air & converted 3-pt play #wizards

Casey Philip

Bradley Beal with the and 1! That plus the chest pound got the whole bench out of their seats. #WizBulls #dcrising

Michael Lee

Marcin Gortat on playing Joakim Noah: "I love playing against defensive players of the year. I got to go three times harder." #wizards

Mike Prada

Trevor Ariza saved that play. He bumped Taj Gibson on the Bulls’ pet play (sbn.to/1llH644), ruining the timing.

Mike Prada

When the Bulls overload, the Wizards can send their other big through quicker because he’s already closer to the hoop.

Chris Miller

Wall and Beal made their first shots tonight. Beal has 7 already. Bulls trailing by 9. #WizardsTalk

Michael Lee

#wizards came to play so far. Up, 15-6. Bradley Beal has personally outscored CHI with 7 pts after that two-handed jam

Mike Prada

The Bulls have NO idea how to deal with the Wizards’ wings switching assignments. NO clue. Many other teams figure it out sooner.

Casey Philip

Mighty quiet in United Center as the @WashWizards take a 13-6 lead in game 2! #wizbulls #dcrising

Mike Prada

Clear Wizards adjustment early: Trevor Ariza is defending Jimmy Butler.

Mike Prada

Quicker look there by Hinrich to Noah rolling. Bet you’ll see Augustin also look for Jo sooner.

Mike Prada

Great job by Ariza stunting to Boozer on the nail.

Mike Prada

That Beal corner three was a really bad sign for Chicago. Uncharacteristically sloppy D. Worried about other guys too much.

Casey Philip

Wall & Beal shot a combinded 7-25 last game. They make the 1st 2 shots of the game...that is what they call a good sign. #WizBulls #dcrising

Michael Lee

No. 2 & No. 3 hit CHI with the 2-3, #wizards up 5-0.

Mike Prada

Dunleavy was open on that screen the screener action. Beal has to be careful. Lucky he missed.

Andrew Sharp

Let's go Wizards. Do it for the guys who died to make this possible. For Jan. For Calbert. For Jahidi, for Chris Whitney. For God. FOR GIL.

Mike Prada

OK now let’s switch to Wizards-Bulls, y’all. (Out of market, don’t get CSN).

Michael Lee

Since we had so much fun last game, I'm inviting folks back to discuss Game 2 of #wizards-CHI here: wapo.st/1kZcGBU

Mike Prada

Coach Bud probably won’t stick with his bench as long in Game 3. Not that it would have mattered much tonight.

Chris Miller

Tonight's officials for game two between Wizards and Bulls. Joe Crawford Bennie Adams Bill Spooner.

Mike Prada

George Hill hasn’t looked to score this much since January.

Mike Prada

Shots that were falling for the Hawks are no longer falling. Not much else to this, to be honest.

Mike Prada

OK, now Paul George needs to chill a bit.

Mike Prada

Pacers are willing to live with any Hawks guard not named Jeff Teague trying to ISO a big.

Mike Prada

Fell behind, just caught up. George Hill going at Teague was meaningful. Pacers need him to be aggressive.

Michael Lee

Randy Wittman doesn't want #wizards satisfied with split. "I want these guys to come out with that desperation. Got to come out & get this."

Michael Lee

Frustrated with Qs about Nene being sore & if he'll start Game 2, Randy Wittman joked, "No, we’re going to hold him out tonight." #wizards

Mike Prada

“Roy Hibbert’s like a goalie” is a really good way of putting it. (Seriously).

Michael Lee

Randy Wittman makes right moves in playoff coaching debut vs CHI: wapo.st/1tzrefK #wizards

Mike Prada

Kenny Smith is killing me. Claims there’s no ball pressure when three guys are boxing Shelvin Mack in. The pass wasn’t even clean!

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal: "We knew we could be a playoff team...We’re setting more goals & standards, let’s get higher than that." #wizards

Mike Prada

Pacers are doing some junk switching to account for Hibbert’s lack of speed. Kind of feel like you’ve already lost when you have to do that.

Mike Prada

Pacers switched every off-ball screen on that play. Have been doing so a lot tonight.

Mike Prada

C.J. Watson should play more.

Mike Prada

Hibbert comes in, Pero Antic enters the next possession.

Mike Prada

Pacers are switching on screens too easily. Yes, even in the last five seconds of the shot clock.

Mike Prada

Lou Williams waking up is a pleasant surprise for the Hawks.

Mike Prada

Damn, sick burn Joel Meyers.

Mike Prada

Have to give Paul George credit. He’s engaged in this one. His teammates need to join him.

Mike Prada

These are the moments where I would be sure Hibbert is ON the court. Brand is in and he’s not nearly the shooting threat Antic is.

Mike Prada

Hibbert really fell for Antic pulling the chair twice?

Mike Prada

Millsap pulls Hibbert away from the hoop, Teague drives left right by George and the hoop is open. Looks like Game 1.

Mike Prada

Play that got Antic the open long two was brilliant. Three guys on the baseline, looked like a Korver play and Korver screened Antic’s man.

Chris Miller

Per Elias: Since the 83-84 season, 14 road teams have gone up 2-0 in the first round, with 12 winning the series. #WizardsTalk

Mike Prada

Paul George is indeed on Teague. Hibbert sticks to Millsap, but there was some funky switching going on during that last play.

Mike Prada

I think all three series are 1-1 by the end of the night, but it’ll be a slog for all three home teams, giving road teams more confidence.

Kevin Seraphin

Failed teleportation lol just before my second playoffs game lol I'm ready for my game now lol vine.co/v/Mn1jOd5TIQH

Love this city. #chicago photography by crazyhilario :) instagram.com/p/nG_-V2CsYK/

Finally watched LAC-GSW. Chris Paul seemed to key on Curry’s left-handed passes. Clippers didn’t really change much from what I saw.

Marcin Gortat on Nene being sore after playing 35 mins Sun: "He will be fine. That's his smoke, his cover smoke. He's really good." #wizards

Andrew Sharp

Showering gifts on Office Nene before the game tonight, let's go Wizards http://t.co/VailWbHOD3

Chris Miller

Bradley Beal is NOT a fan of Chicago deep dish pizza. Totally agree with him.

Andrew Sharp

Chris Paul can take over whenever he wants, but the Clippers are better when he doesn't grantland.com/the-triangle/t…

Michael Lee

Bradley Beal went to Giordano's yesterday but had thin crust, not deep dish. "Can't eat that fat pie piece, whatever it's called." #wizards

Mike Prada

Nevermind, can’t do that. Clippers needed to play on Monday because the LA Kings have a home game tonight. So nothing the NBA could do.

Mike Prada

One thing NBA could have done: move LAC-GSW to Tuesday, start Bulls-Wiz at 8, move OKC-MEM back to 9:30 on Monday, move IND-ATL to 7

Mike Prada

Also, Clippers needed to start at 10:30, so you’d have to ask either Indiana or Toronto to move their start time back.

Mike Prada

For those wondering about the all-East schedule tonight: Bulls can’t play Wednesday because of Blackhawks. That’s why.

John Wall & Bradley Beal shot poorly in playoff debuts but #wizards had no complaints about efforts in Game 1: wapo.st/1rjyRD3

Rewatching Grizz-Thunder. Amazing Durant made this shot. http://t.co/7o07TT4AZO

Jermaine O'Neal & Doc Rivers going at it? This is hilarious. That time they shared in BOS really wasn't sweet, huh?

If there is a Game 5 in #wizards-CHI series, it will be April 29 at 8 pm on TNT

Hell of a performance by the Grizzlies.
