Chicago
Washington

[WASHINGTON] — The Washington Wizards played host to the Chicago Bulls last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 101 to 99 Wiz victory. The win bumps Washington's record up to 19-18 on the season, while the loss drags Chicago's down to 19-20. Though a win's a win and Wizards fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from John Wall led all players in the contest and his 26 points, 6 rebounds, 14 assists, 1 blocks and 1 steals in 40 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Ask anybody, however - Wall included - and the most important part is that the Wizards walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Taj Gibson did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Bulls. Gibson's 10 points, 12 rebounds and 1 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Washington's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Bulls, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Wiz will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Wiz will be a date with the Boston Celtics while the visiting Bulls will look to bounce back in a matchup with the New York Knicks.
