Tale of the Tape
|OPP. 3PT FG%||0.348||0.329|
Tonight’s game is the second of four meetings between the Washington Wizards and Chicago
Bulls. The Bulls won the first meeting, 87-77, on December 29th in Chicago. The Bulls on the other hand have won 6 of the last 7 games. Both teams are playing back to back games.
This is "put up or shut up time" for the Wizards. They have played much better lately, but this is a big Eastern Conference match-up. This match-up is likely too much though. Wizards still have to play these guys two more times this season. This is a big opportunity for them to make a statement.
Again though, the Bulls have only lost once this season on the road to a Eastern Conference team. So, a win tonight will not be likely. If they can upset the Bulls, this team can feed on the momentum
I hate to say it, but I think the Bulls win this. The Wizards have gotten better, but they still don't have a convincing win. A win that tells the NBA they belong. While I am hoping it comes, I have to see it to believe it.

Predicted Player of the Game
I have gone back and forth in my head on this one. It is going to take a near miracle to win this. I am going with the bench.
