Wizards Vs. Bulls Recap: Washington Pulls Off Upset With 87-84 Win In Chicago

The Washington Wizards went on the road on Monday night and defeated the Eastern Conference's best team. The Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls, 87-84, for their best road win of the season. It was an impressive effort after last week's ugly losses to the Knicks and Cavaliers. With reigning MVP Derrick Rose sitting out, the Wizards forced 17 Chicago turnovers in an ugly offensive game on both ends of the floor.

Kevin Seraphin continued his solid production over the final month and a half of the season, delivering a double-double on the inside for Randy Wittman. Seraphin scored 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, including eight on the offensive glass. Washington owned the paint, scoring 48 points in the key to just 22 by Chicago. John Wall scored 16 points but was just 5 of 15 from the floor, and the Wizards shot just 38 percent as a team. But Bulls were just as bad from the field, and the Wizards capitalized for 27 points off their turnovers for the win.

The Wizards now return home to face the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night at Verizon Center.

Wizards Vs. Bulls Score Update: Washington Leads Chicago By 4 After Low-Scoring 1st Half

The Washington Wizards are looking to pull off the upset on Monday night in Chicago against the Eastern Conference-leading Bulls. The Wizards lead by four after 24 minutes at the United Center. The Bulls continue to play without the constantly banged-up Derrick Rose, and have committed 11 turnovers in the first half alone. Chicago does not have a player in double figures and went ice cold for a stretch in the second quarter.

Washington has not exactly been shooting the lights out either on the offensive end, hitting just 35 percent from the floor. Kevin Seraphin leads all scorers with 10 points but he's also already put 13 shots up. John Wall and Jordan Crawford added seven points each from the back court, but they're a combined 5 of 16 from the field.

If Washington can continue to force turnovers, they have a shot to pull off the upset. While Chicago may be one of the league's best defensive teams, it will be hard for Washington to shoot much worse.
