Result: Chicago Bulls cut Washington Wizards' playoff lead

Mike Dunleavy leads the Chicago Bulls to their first win in their playoff series against the Washington Wizards.

The Chicago Bulls have claimed their first win in their playoffs series against the Washington Wizards, beating their opponents 100-97.

John Wall and Nene helped the home side to a slender lead at half time as they looked to extend their series lead to 3-0 over the Eastern Conference's fourth seeds.

However, Mike Dunleavy kept them in contention with a flurry of points in the first half, before continuing to lead the charge after the break to put the Bulls ahead.

The Raptors kept the scores close and edged back ahead late on, but Jimmy Butler put Chicago back in front inside the final 30 seconds to make sure of the win.

The fourth game of their first-round series takes place tomorrow.
