Wizards coach Randy Wittman found spots to get rest for John Wall and Trevor Ariza as they ended the regular season with a four-game winning streak, but the Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau did the opposite.
The Chicago Bulls strengthened their hold on home-court advantage in the playoffs, and made it a little tougher for the Atlanta Hawks to extend their season.
Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler understand it.
The Chicago Bulls didn't get a great night from their starters Wednesday. Their backups made sure they didn't need one.
The Chicago Bulls were open all over the floor, so Joakim Noah kept collecting assists. Jumpers for Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich. A dunk for Taj Gibson, another jumper for Butler, and on and on it went.
Taj Gibson didn't worry when Chicago fell behind Dallas early, and he wasn't concerned when the Mavericks made a late run for the lead.
Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler is missing his second straight game with bruised ribs.
This one was all over in the first quarter, right about the time Jimmy Butler's only 3-pointer made it a 20-point game.
Before his team faced the surging Bulls, Toronto coach Dwane Casey praised Chicago for being "at the head of the class" when it comes to defense.
The Chicago Bulls took advantage of the injury-riddled San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night.
John Wall had 23 points and 11 assists, and Washington beat the Chicago Bulls 96-93 on Friday night for its third consecutive victory. The Wizards (19-19) reached .500 for the third time this season. They host lowly Detroit on Saturday night with a chance for their first winning record since they were 2-1 on Oct. 31, 2009.
John Wall is playing smarter on the defensive end, and the result is a three-game winning streak for the Wizards going into Saturdays game vs. the Detroit Pistons.
With the Bulls down three and one possession to tie it, Nene blocked a jumper from Chicago's Jimmy Butler to seal a win for Washington.
The Wizards shot better than 50 percent from the third game in a row and got back to .500 in a game that ended when Nene blocked the Bulls' final shot attempt to tie score.
CHICAGO (AP) — Stung by the Luol Deng trade, the Chicago Bulls found a way to ease their pain.
"A win's a win," Butler said. "Wins are hard to come by in this league. Every team has a roster full of NBA players; there really are no bad teams. You get a win, you're happy with that."
"It's on us," Butler said. "We're the ones out there playing, so we have to bring it each and every night. Thibs can only do so much. You learn from it."
