WASHINGTON – The Washington Wizards are back home with a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Chicago Bulls.
The Wizards took Game 2 in overtime Tuesday night and can finish off a sweep with Games 3 and 4 set for Friday and Sunday in Washington.
Washington is 19th NBA team to win the first two on the road in a seven-game set, and all but three went on to capture the series.
The Wizards have taken control by out-defensing the defense-minded Bulls. Chicago failed to score in the final 3:53 of regulation and the first 3:45 of overtime in Game 2.
The Wizards are seeking only their third playoff series win since the 1970s.
Says guard John Wall: "It's great to win two games on the road, but we're still the underdogs."
