Everything broke the right way for the Wizards, who beat the Boston Celtics and had Brooklyn Nets lose Wednesday, to jump to the No. 5 seed on the final day of the regular season. They'll play Game 1 of a first-round series at the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.

The Wizards (44-38) won the season series with Chicago 2-1, with the only loss coming 96-78 on April 5 at Verizon Center. In that game, however, they didn't have Nene who was out because of a left knee ligament strain.

Trevor Booker scored all 20 of his points in the first half to spark the Wizards (44-38) to a 15-point lead and their most wins since 2004-05 when this franchise won 45. It also ties for the second-most wins in a season since 1979.

John Wall led his team out to a fast start by getting 13 points and five assists in the first quarter. He finished with 15 and nine, Bradley Beal led all scorers with 27 on 10-for-14 shooting and seven rebounds, Trevor Ariza had 13 points and six rebounds, Marcin Gortat had 15 and 10 rebounds to end his season with 37 double-doubles.

Phil Pressey, who was starting in place of Rajon Rondo (left hamstring), shot 3-for-12 for just nine points. Pressey had a career-high 20 in Washington on Jan. 22 to upset the Wizards 113-111 in overtime.
