(32-36) Chicago Bulls vs. Washington Wizards (41-26)
This Friday will see an Eastern Conference matchup between two teams headed in different directions. The Chicago Bulls travel to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Wizards.
Washington has taken the last two meetings, including a 101-99 victory on January 10th.
The Chicago Bulls lost for the sixth time in the last seven games on Wednesday, falling at home to the Memphis Grizzlies 98-91. The Bulls have fallen to 10th place in the conference.
The Wizards have lost two in a row, including a 112-107 home loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. Washington still holds the 3rd spot in the East.
It seemed as though the Bulls may have straightened things out when they ended a five-game losing streak by defeating the Hornets on Monday.
However, their offense disappeared again on Wednesday as they were handled by the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Bulls have now lost six of their last seven and may have fallen out of the playoff picture.
Although they are only one game behind the 8th place Pistons, Chicago lost Dwyane Wade for the season due to an elbow injury against Memphis.
Chicago averages only 101.8 points per game which ranks 26th in the league. They rank 3rd in rebounding with 46.1 and 18th in assists with 21.8 per contest.
The Bulls have still been a good defensive team– allowing only 103.3 points per game which ranks 7th in the NBA.
Jimmy Butler leads the way for Chicago with 23.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest. Dwyane Wade was contributing 18.6 points and 4.5 rebounds before the injury.
Robin Lopez adds 10 points and 6.5 rebounds, and Nikola Mirotic chips in 9.4 points and 5.2 rebounds a night.
The Wizards continue to be one of the streakiest teams in basketball.
They won five in a row earlier this month, four of which were on the road. However, they have now lost two straight– falling 119-104 at Minnesota on Monday and 112-107 at home against the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Washington is still firmly in the 3rd spot in the Eastern Conference. They lead the 4th place Raptors by two games and are only 1.5 games behind the 2nd place Celtics.
The Wizards have the 5th best scoring offense in the league, averaging 109 points per game.
They rank 20th in rebounding with 43 and 7th in assists with 23.9 per contest. The Wizards allow 106.9 points per game, ranking 22nd in scoring defense.
Bradley Beal and John Wall share the team lead in scoring with 23.2 points per game.
