On Friday night, the Wizards take on the Bulls at 8 p.m. in Chicago, less than a week after the two teams met in one of the most memorable games of the season. Washington will look for retribution after Chicago took the last matchup on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from DeMar DeRozan. The Bulls enter on three days of rest and have won eight games while the Wizards look to bounce back from another last-second loss Wednesday night against Houston.
