The Washington Wizards are hanging in there after a rough first quarter, and they were able to essentially keep pace with the Bulls in the second period, though that also means they're still down double digits at the break.
John Wall has 14 points on 4-9 shooting to lead Washington, though he has only one assist to go with three turnovers. JaVale McGee also is in double figures with 11, and Nick Young has five points.
Derrick Rose continues to pace the Bulls offense and finished the half with 16 points and five assists. Kyle Korver, who started to heat up in the second quarter, has 14 points; he's hit four of eight three-point attempts.
C.J. Watson did get into the game, though he logged only about five minutes and did not score.
