When NBA fans took a look at the calendar this year, tonight's game was probably one they circled. For the first time in their NBA careers, John Wall and Derrick Rose will go against each other when the Washington Wizards take on the Chicago Bulls in Chicago tonight.
The two dynamic point guards are both having outstanding seasons, and they both have a lot on common. Both were number one picks in the NBA Draft, and both played for John Calipari in college. Now, they are both the faces of their franchises.
As of right now, the Bulls are further along than the Wizards. Chicago was a playoff team in each of the last two seasons, and they are off to a solid 4-3 start despite playing without Carlos Boozer. The Bulls are coming off a blowout win over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. The Wizards, on the other hand, are 2-5, and are coming off a disappointing 93-85 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night at home.
Tonight's game will begin at 8 p.m.
