The Wizards are back out on the road to start the week. They will face Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
The Washington Wizards are riding a quick two game losing streak, and things don't get any easier to kick off one of the last weeks of the year. They head to Chicago on Monday to take on Derrick Rose and the rest of the Bulls. The game starts at 8 pm ET and can be found on TCN.
The Bulls have played extremely well this season, even without their leader in Rose for many of the games. They are the definition of a team, not relying on any singular player to get it done. As a result, they are a model for the type of team that the Wizards should attempt to build around their star, John Wall. That won't make the Wizards' game against them any easier on Monday.
