Wizards vs. Bulls Game 5, NBA playoffs 2014: Time, TV schedule, radio and more

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Washington looks to win its first playoff series in nine years on Tuesday night.

Chicago thought it had found its rhythm with a win over the Wizards in Game 3, but a dominating performance by Washington in Game 4 has the Eastern Conference's No. 4 seed down, 3-1.

Washington forced the Bulls to shoot a measly 21 percent from three-point range on Sunday, as the Wizards dropped in eight threes of their own. Trevor Ariza was particularly impressive, scoring 30 points on 10-of-17 shooting with eight rebounds.

The Bulls have yet to score more than 100 points in the series and their top-notch defense hasn't been enough to stop Washington's streaky offense. Taj Gibson went wild, scoring 32 points off the bench for the Bulls in Game 4. But Chicago will need more help from its starting lineup, where no player scored more than 16 points on Sunday.

The Wizards have the opportunity to clinch a playoff series for the first time since 2005. For Chicago, a Cinderella season is in jeopardy of being lost to the ages after battling for home-court advantage all year.
