NBA playoff schedule 2014, round 1: Bulls vs. Wizards begins Sunday

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The battle for Obama's heart begins. Here is your complete schedule.

This matchup of NBA teams closest to President Obama are both missing their star point guards.

Chicago is without Derek Rose, and for the 16th straight season, the Wizards are without God Shammgod.

Still, the show must go on! John Wall, heir to the Shammgod throne, has been terrific in his absence and has some solid talent around him with Bradley Beal, Nene, Marcin Gortat and Trevor Ariza. The Bulls are led by Joakim Noah's veracity and versatility in conjunction with outstanding coaching from Tom Thibodeau, supported by Jimmy Butler, D.J. Augustin and Nazr Mohammed. And Carlos Boozer, I guess.

Anyway, here is the schedule for the first four games:

Game 1: Sunday, April 20
Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls, 7 p.m. EST on TNT

Game 2: Tuesday, April 22
Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls, 9:30 p.m. EST on TNT

Game 3: Friday, April 25
Chicago Bulls @ Washington Wizards, 8 p.m. EST on ESPN

Game 4: Sunday, April 27
Chicago Bulls @ Washington Wizards, 1 p.m. EST on ABC

Game 5: Tuesday, April 29 (if necessary)
Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls, TBD

Game 6: Friday, May 1 (if necessary)
Chicago Bulls @ Washington Wizards, TBD

Game 7: Tuesday, May 3 (if necessary)
Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls, TBD
