The Washington Wizards are in a bad shape this season and are officially eliminated from the play-off contention. The team are in a struggling run of form for the last few days, losing six of their last 8 matches in the NBA League. The club heads to this contest with a 3-7 record in their last 10 games and a 22-16 home record.
Chicago is in a disastrous form through-out the season and heads to this game with five defeats in a row. The club are in such bad shape in recent weeks that they lost 12 of their last fifteen games. The team will miss the playoffs for the second successive season and the third time in the past four years.
Bulls are undoubtedly a dangerous side on their day, but the team appears weak for the strong squad Wizards here. We expect Wizards will register a simple victory here.
