To say the Bulls have been going through a tough stretch as of late would be an understatement. They lost 2 in a row to the Spurs and Heat before getting back in the W column with a solid win over the Raptors.
Chicago is tied with the Detroit Pistons for the 8th and final playoff spot in the East.
The Wizards have been one of the more disappointing teams this season and they are currently on the outside looking in. They snapped their 5-game losing streak in their last game, but they are still 2.5 games out of the 8th spot in the East.
In their last games the Bulls beat the Toronto Raptors 109-107 and the Wizards beat the Detroit Pistons 124-81.
The Bulls recently got back Jimmy Butler from a knee injury and while he did not play in the losses to the Heat and Spurs he was key in the win over the Raptors. He only went 5/18 from the floor for 18 points, but also had 5 rebounds and 6 assists.
Butler leads the Bulls in scoring and 2nd leading scorer Pau Gasol will miss his 2nd game in a row with a knee injury. In the Raptors gave the Bulls shot nearly 50% from the floor and they got a HUGE lift from reserve Dylan McDermott, who came off the bench for 29 points.
The Bulls rank 19th in the league in scoring and 17th in opponents’ points allowed.
The Bulls are only 12-20 on the road this season, but they won their last road game against the Raptors, who have the 2nd best record in the Eastern Conference.
These teams have split the 2 meetings this season with each winning on the road.
Washington was really struggling on both sides of the floor in their 5-game losing streak, but in the blowout win over the Pistons in their last game they held Detroit to a FG% of only 40.5% and they shot a scorching 56.7% from the field.
The Wizards used a balanced attack in the Pistons game with every starter going for at least 11 points and reserve Nene went for 20 points.
The key for the Wizards is getting good guard play from their top 2 scorers of John Wall and Bradley Beal. With Gasol out these guys need to feed the ball to C Marcin Gortat (13.4 ppg 9.8 rpg) since the Bulls are thin on the inside.
The Wizards are 17-17 at home this season. Washington has won 7 of their last 8 games at home.
