Last night at United Center in Chicago


79 When a team does what the Wizards did — score a season-low 79 points — could there really be anything else?


The Bulls converted 26 of 34 free throws while the Wizards made just 13 of 20.


One year has made a huge difference in the Washington Wizards’ home record.

In their run to the playoffs last season, the Wizards were 16-5 at home at the season’s halfway point on their way to a record 29 home victories at MCI Center. But going into tonight’s game at home against Charlotte, the Wizards are just 11-9 in the District this season. The Charlotte game marks the first in a stretch in which the Wizards play seven of their next eight games at home [-] against teams wth a cumulative record of 114-154 (.425) — before they close out the last two games before the All-Star break with road games at Oklahoma City and Dallas.

“Cant compare us, that’s just how I look at it,” said Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, whose team started 26-15 last year overall.

Jordan is more concerned about keeping his players focused through this part of the season, because sometimes players lose focus as the All-Star break approaches.
