The Wizards-Bulls 2014 NBA Playoffs schedule is officially out, and in terms of exposure, Washington's getting a pretty good deal. Here's how it shakes out so far.
GAME 1: Sunday, April 20, 7 p.m., TNT.
GAME 2: Tuesday, April 22, 9:30 p.m., TNT
GAME 3: Friday, April 25, 8 p.m., ESPN
GAME 4: Sunday, April 27, 1 p.m., ABC
GAMES 5-7: TBD.
That's right: the second Wizards-Bulls home game will be on ABC. There's your exposure. If you're a Wizards fan and have the means to buy tickets, please do so and hope the Wizards aren't already down 3-0 in the series. This is the Wizards' chance.
The schedule alignment was pretty straightforward because the Blackhawks are playing at home in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Wednesday. Therefore, it had to be a Sunday--->Tuesday schedule for the first two games. I'm sure Ted Leonsis is also happy that both of his home playoff games are on the weekend.
