They were hampered by seven turnovers in the quarter, however, and that issue has limited their opportunities to put some distance between themselves and the Wizards.

Richard Hamilton leads the way for Chicago with nine points on 4-6 shooting from the field. Carlos Boozer has six points and three boards, while C.J. Watson has three assists.

Jan Vesely has six to lead the Wizards, who shot 36.4% in the period.
