The first time these teams met, the Wizards did themselves in with turnovers in a loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
The shots weren't going down for Bradley Beal earlier in the week, when he went 0-for-5 in the first half vs. the depleted New York Knicks.
Taking a look at the boxscore alone, the Wizards were better than the Atlanta Hawks in field-goal accuracy and rebounding but didn't have Nene in that game at Verizon Center on Nov. 25.
The Wizards were more physical. Their defense was better. They played with a pace and had ball movement that put pressure on the Chicago Bulls for every second of the shot clock.
