Few thought the Washington Wizards would advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs, including Lady Gaga, who was forced to change the date of her concert at the Verizon Center next week to accommodate a possible Game 6.

The Wizards, in the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2008, beat the favorite Chicago Bulls in the first round 4-1 and went on to defeat the No. 1-seeded Indiana Pacers 102-96 in the first game of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Monday, according to the Washington Post.

A possible Game 6 of the series would fall on May 15, the same date as the previously scheduled Lady Gaga concert. That was until the Verizon Center announced Monday that the performance had been moved to May 12 to accommodate the NBA.
