WASHINGTON (AP) -- Trevor Ariza had a career playoff-high 30 points, and the Washington Wizards scored the first 14 points of the game and barely looked back Sunday in beating the Chicago Bulls 98-89 to take 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference series.

John Wall added 15 points and 10 assists for the Wizards, who forced 16 turnovers and committed only six. Washington played without forward Nene, who was suspended for grabbing Jimmy Butler by the head in Game 3.

The Wizards are looking to win a playoff series for only the third time since the 1970s. They can finish off the Bulls in Game 5 on Tuesday in Chicago.

Taj Gibson scored a career-high 32 points on 13 for 16 shooting for Chicago, but his teammates combined to go 22 for 62 from the field.
