It may be time for the Wizards to use more Paul Pierce to create mismatches, but he goes back to defense being the problem (CSN, CSNwashington.com and NBC Sports Live Extra, 6:30 p.m. ET).
Otto Porter's otherwise solid overall performance vs. the Bulls was overshadowed by a play to end the fourth quarter in which the second-year forward lost track of his man.
Bradley Beal, who will be playing in his third game back vs. the Miami Heat here Friday, was shooting 46% during a stretch before he missed three weeks.
