Sometimes the flat-screen just isn’t big enough. Sometimes—when it’s the NBA playoffs and your team is doing well—you need the Jumbotron.

For that reason, Washington Wizards fans are invited to the Verizon Center tonight to watch Game 2 against the Indiana Pacers. The Wizards won Game 1 on Monday. Doors open at 6 PM for the event, sponsored by Budweiser.

Members of past Wizards and Bullets teams, as well as the Wizard Girls, will be on hand to sign autographs, according to a press release, which also promises that G-Man and the Power Pack will be attending. If that’s not enough, there will be face-painting and poster-making, because what’s a basketball playoff game without your face painted red, white, and blue?
