Up 3-1, Wizards Look to Finish off Bulls

chicagobullsDEERFIELD, Ill. (AP)–Drew Gooden knows what it’s like to play for a team that blew a 3-1 lead, so he won’t breathe easy until the Washington Wizards finish off the Chicago Bulls.

They have a chance to do just that on Tuesday night.

Game 5 is in Chicago, and if the Wizards prevail, they’ll advance in the playoffs for just the third time since the 1970s. But as commanding as their lead is, Gooden knows just how quickly it can go away.

The veteran forward was a rookie with Orlando in 2003 when the Magic went up 3-1 on Detroit, only to drop the next three to the Pistons and bow out in the first round.
