The Chicago Bulls have characteristically struggled during their usual November "circus road trip" across the west, but they're still .500 so far this season after Saturday's 93-86 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Chicago was in the midst of a three-game losing streak entering the weekend.
With the Bulls once again playing the Bucks in Milwaukee on Monday night, fans were presumably pleased to see them handle things in the first game of the two-game set. Carlos Boozer was particularly impressive, leading the way with 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting and a season-high 19 rebounds, including eight of the offensive variety.
While the Bulls are likely pleased to be back at .500, the Washington Wizards would presumably be thrilled to simply get their first victory at this point. The 0-11 Wizards lost their latest game in typically agonizing fashion on Saturday night, a 108-106 defeat in double overtime to the middling Charlotte Bobcats.
