Tuesday night, the Washington Wizards pulled out a thrilling 101-99 victory over the Chicago Bulls, and one popular Capitals player was there to cheer them on.
21-year-old left wing Andre Burakovsky had lower bowl seats to watch John Wall hit a game-winning jumper with five seconds left in the game.

The victory put the Wizards over .500 for the first time this season and since 2015. After starting the season slow, the Wiz have won seven of their last 10 games and are on a three-game winning streak.
They also appear to be having fun again too.
