The Washington Wizards can’t lose these days.

After days of hand-wringing over a potential conflict May 15 between Game 6 of the team’s scheduled playoff series with the Indiana Pacers and a Lady Gaga concert set for the same night, basketball prevailed Tuesday.

Verizon Center announced it had rescheduled the concert for May 12, the day after the Wizards host the Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.

“We apologize to Lady Gaga and to her fans for any inconvenience in having to reschedule her show at Verizon Center,” said senior vice president and general manager of Verizon Center David Touhey in a statement. “We also want to thank her and her fans for their flexibility and understanding. Lady Gaga has been extremely accommodating in working with us to reschedule her tour date given the Wizards potential playoff game, and we are looking forward to her show.”

Tickets for the May 15 show will be honored on the rescheduled date.
