Last night at MCI Center:

KEY NUMBER

8 Seasons since the Wizards, known as the Bullets during that 1996-97 season, were in the playoffs. The Bullets were swept by the Michael Jordan-led Bulls in the first round.

SEEN AND HEARD

SIDING WITH O’NEAL: Bulls forward Tyson Chandler, who was drafting out of high school at age 18, is in agreement with Pacers forward Jermaine O’Neal in not wanting the league to put an age requirement for entering the league. But he doesn’t believe the requirement is racially motivated.

“A lot of the things Jermaine was saying made a lot of sense. I stepped back and listened to him and there was a lot of truth in what he was saying,” Chandler said. “I think that the age requirement would take away a lot of opportunities for young men to come into the league and in the process escape whatever their predicament might be.”

RAMOS OUT: To make room for Brendan Haywood on the active roster, the Wizards placed rookie center Peter John Ramos on the injured list (knee tendinitis).
