Chicago snapped its two-game losing streak by beating Washington on Saturday.

Carlos Boozer recorded his 13th double-double of the season to help the Bulls defeat the Wizards, 87-77, on Saturday.

Boozer had 15 points and 12 rebounds on 5-of-12 shooting from the field to lead Chicago.

Richard Hamilton returned to Chicago's lineup after missing the last 12 games with a foot injury and scored nine points in just under 15 minutes of playing time. Marco Belinelli had a game-high 17 points off the bench for the Bulls. Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich also scored in double-figures, as they had 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Emeka Okafor had this third double-double in the last four games, as he recorded 11 points and 19 rebounds on 5-of-11 shooting from the field to lead Washington.

The Bulls shot just 39.1 percent from the floor but were able to hold Washington to 36.5 percent shooting.

Washington outscored Chicago 26-22 in the first quarter, but the Bulls were able to win every quarter after that to secure the win.
