(WJLA) - Some say that the best form of excitement is the excitement that comes from an unexpected source.
But no Wizards fan, or Washingtonian for that matter, can honestly say they expected their pro basketball team to be in the second round of the NBA playoffs. And now, having beat second-round opponent Indiana in Game One of their series, the Wiz are a favorite to continue on in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Washington hasn’t done this well in the playoffs since 30 years ago, when the team was called the Bullets. So welcome to Wizards Fever, as screaming fans will stream into the Verizon Center on Wednesday night to watch Game Two on the arena’s big screen.
Luella Johnson is a huge Wizards fan, and already has tickets to Game Three and Game Four back here in Washington:
"I'm hoping for a sweep," she says.
