The Bulls have finally adjusted to the loss of Derrick Rose in their lineup. The team has plenty of experience playing without Rose because their talented point guard missed the entire season a year ago. Chicago maintained their strong defensive form a year ago without Rose and saw their offense dip as a result. Last year Chicago without Rose has good success winning both home games as they win by three and win by 10 points. The games have been low scoring as they have gone under in head to head contests in nine of their past ten meetings. The Bulls have an 11-7 road record this season. They will be carrying a five game winning streak into this contest after a 103-97 home victory on Saturday to the Charlotte Bobcats. It was a bad sign for the Washington Wizards as they tried to bounce back from a 93-66 road defeat at Indiana by losing 114-107 at home to an inconsistent Houston Rockets team. Washington has lost five of their past seven games. The five losses by Washington have come by seven points or greater with three losses coming by double digits. Looking at the Chicago win streak we have found all five wins come by five points or greater as they have been able to win by margin. Washington has not been a good defensive team this season as they are allowing their opponents to hit on 46.3% from the field. They also struggle from the free throw line ranking 23rd in the NBA. The Bulls sit third best in field goal defense allowing just 42.6% shooting.
