Bulls Vs. Wizards Final Score: Chicago Defeats Washington By 14

If a team ever had an excuse to lose to a unit as woeful as these Washington Wizards, it was tonight's Chicago Bulls. The Bulls were playing their third straight game and were without their three best guards, including superstar Derrick Rose who aggravated a toe injury during last night's win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Even with dead legs and banged up roster, Chicago was still able to defeat Washington 78-64.

This one will be forever remembered as the John Lucas III Game. Lucas III nearly posted a triple-double, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists. It was hardly an efficient performance, though. Lucas jacked up 28 shots (connecting on 11 of them) and finished just 1-for-7 from three-point range. Kyle Korver was Chicago's second leading scorer, finishing with 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Luol Deng added 12 points and 15 rebounds for Chicago on 5-of-21 shooting.

As a team, Chicago shot just 37 percent.

Washington was led by Jordan Crawford, who scored 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting.
