The Chicago Bulls will try to knot up their series with the Washington Wizards Tuesday night as the two sides meet again at the United Center. The Wizards upset the Bulls, 102-93, Sunday night in Chicago. "After yesterdays practice I knew these guys were focused like they havent been before and thats a good sign," said Wizards coach Randy Wittman. Nene scored 24 points and the Wizards had big contributions from all five starters in their first playoff game in six years. They overcame a 13-point deficit and claimed home-court advantage from their much more-experienced foes. "Its always a game of runs," said Wittman. "I always tell our guys, Stay in the moment. When we got down 13, we stayed in the moment." The Bulls remained in the lead following a 14-4 run in second quarter until Trevor Arizas free throws with 4:17 remaining put the Wizards in front. The shots were part of a 14-3 run that gave the Wizards an eight-point lead with 25 seconds left. Nene rattled in a shot during the spurt but the biggest points might have been Marcin Gortats baseline jumper after he rebounded a John Wall miss, pushing Washingtons lead to six with 34.2 seconds remaining. Gortat totaled 15 points and 13 rebounds, Ariza had 18 points, Wall scored 16 with six rebounds and six assists and Bradley Beal had 13 points and seven assists for fifth-seeded Washington. The Wizards also got a huge boost from veteran Andre Miller. He scored 10 off the bench and played brilliantly in the fourth quarter. The fourth-seeded Bulls, in the playoffs for the second straight year without injured star Derrick Rose, were led by 16 points apiece from Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin. Joakim Noah added 10 points and 10 rebounds and Jimmy Butler scored 15. "Our defense wasnt very good; 102 points, 48 percent (shooting), outrebounded. Its hard to win like that," said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. Maybe the Bulls can garner some momentum from Mondays announcement that Noah was named Defensive Player of the Year. "This award is a team award," he said after accepting the trophy. The Bulls led the NBA in opponents scoring and finished second in opponents field-goal percentage. The defense should improve, but the offense remains a concern for the Bulls. Chicago was held to 39 points in the second half, where a pure scorer, which the Bulls dont have, could take over a game. Chicago also shot 42 percent from the field and 25 percent from long range. Washington will host Game 3 on Friday night. DeMarre Carroll Jersey

. -- When the Los Angeles Kings are on top of their formidable defensive game, they revel in the silence they can create in a frustrated road arena.Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Tom Bradys 3-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman put the New England Patriots ahead with 2:02 remaining, while Malcolm Butlers goal-line interception with 20 seconds left preserved a 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in a Super Bowl XLIX that every bit lived up to its billing. After Brady threw two of his four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to bring the Patriots back from a 24-14 deficit against the NFLs most feared defense, New Englands own unit came up with a game-saving play to sew up the AFC champions first NFL title in a decade. Seattle, vying to become the first repeat Super BBowl winner since the Pats accomplished the feat following the 2003 and 2004 season, moved down to the opposing 5-yard line in the final seconds after Jermaine Kearse came down with a miraculous 33-yard catch.dddddddddddd Marshawn Lynch was stopped just short of the goal line on the ensuing play, but the Seahawks didnt give the ball to their All-Pro back on the next snap. Instead, Russell Wilson attempted a slant intended for Ricardo Lockette that Butler jumped and hauled in to give Brady his fourth Super Bowl triumph, tying Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for the most by a quarterback in league history.
