Wizards prevail in triple-overtime thriller

Posted on February 28, 2014

It was the team's first triple overtime game since 1975 when the franchise was known as the Bullets. On that occasion the Bullets lost to the 76ers in Philadelphia 110-109. Current Comcast SportsNet analyst Phil Chenier played 59 minutes in that game, but doesn't remember much about it. It will be hard to forget last night.

The Wizards' 134-129 victory produced 19 lead changes and 15 ties over the three overtimes. In the end, the Wizards used their defense to finally stop the Raptors and pull away for the win.
