Bulls Win Big, Strengthen Playoff Seeding

Just one other Bull scored more than nine points in their third straight win. Luol Deng finished with 16 points and Kirk Hinrich chipped in eight points and ten assists.

The Bulls played stifling defense while jumping out to a 49-to-27 halftime lead. The 27 points was two off the Wizards' record for fewest in an opening half.

DeShawn Stevenson led Washington with just 13 points.

The Wizards were held to a season-low in points while leading for the seventh time in eight games.
