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.
