Beal scores 24, Wizards hold off Bulls for 112-107 win - Mar 18, 2017

Bradley Beal
Playing their first game without Dwyane Wade, the Chicago Bulls almost pulled off an improbable comeback against the Washington Wizards. That's small consolation for a struggling team fighting for a playoff spot. Bradley Beal (6'5''-SG-93, college: Florida) scored nine of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, John Wall (6'4''-PG-90, college: Kentucky) dished out a career-high 20 assists to go with 14 points, and the Wizards held on to defeat the Bulls 112-107 on Friday night. Minus Wade, whose fractured elbow will keep him out for the rest of the regular season, the Bulls were down 19 points at halftime before getting as close as one. "I hate this word, 'soft.' I hate it, but that's exactly what we were," Butler said of his team's start. "They beat us to every 50-50 ball, worked our tail in transition, we turned the ball over. Those things that we've talked about all year long replayed in that first half." Chicago rallied and eventually had a chance to tie it, but a well-guarded Butler missed a 3-pointer from the wing with 3.9 seconds left. "I'll take that shot," Butler said. "Maybe I should've side-stepped a little bit. You can say all this stuff now, but I had a great look at it." Butler finished with 28 points and Robin Lopez (7'0''-C/F-88, college: Stanford) added a season-high 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls, who began the night in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, and have lost seven of eight. Wall, playing despite spraining his left foot in Wednesday's loss to Dallas, sank four free throws in the final minute, including two with 1.8 seconds left. Washington's Jason Smith (7'0''-F-86, college: Colorado St.), starting in place of Markieff Morris (6'10''-F-89, college: Kansas) who was a late scratch due to illness, tied his season high with 17 points and Ian Mahinmi had a season-high 16. "It was solely attributed to John," Smith said of his output. "He was distributing the ball to everybody." Washington, 21-4 in its last 25 games, had lost two straight, allowing 119 and 112 points. "We got back to defending the right way, guarding our guy individually," Beal said. "They made some tough shots and some big 3's here and there, but for the most part I thought we did a solid job. The Wizards led 49-40 late in the first half when Smith's jumper started a 10-0 run that was capped by Wall's 3-pointer that circled the rim and dropped as the half ended. Those were Wall's only points of the half, but he had 12 assists. "There's only a few guys in the league that can dominate a game with passing, and he's one of them," Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. The Bulls rally began in the third quarter and Nikola Mirotic's 3-pointer with 1:24 left pulled the Bulls within two at 104-102. Wall's 20th assist then produced Marcin Gortat (7'0''-C-84)'s layup. Butler hit a 3 to pull Chicago to within one with 39.7 seconds left before Otto Porter's two free throws put Washington up 110-107 with 18.4 seconds to go.

Wolves Interested In Signing Derrick Rose - 7 hours ago
The Minnesota Timberwolves have interest in signing Derrick Rose(6'3''-G-88, college: Memphis) in free agency. Rose played for Tom Thibodeau for several seasons with the Chicago Bulls. The New York Knicks and Wolves discussed a Rose for Ricky Rubio trade in February. Minnesota also drafted Kris Dunn last June. Rose is coming off a meniscus tear in his left knee that required season-ending surgery. Rose and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, have both stated that they'd be open to re-signing with...   [read more]

Chris Paul, Spurs Believed To Have Mutual Interest - 7 hours ago
Chris Paul(6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest) is widely expected to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers this offseason in free agency, but the San Antonio Spurs are lurking as a potential destination. 'I know they're concerned about their point guard position," said Zach Lowe on The Lowe Post podcast. "Dejounte Murray looks good, but he's not ready yet." "They need a bridge there, right?" said Kevin Arnovitz. "They need a little bit of a bridge between (Tony) Parker and Murray." "Maybe...   [read more]
Bosnians in the NBA this season! Recap! - 22 hours ago
Bosnians in the NBA this season! Recap! Dragan Bender: Dragan struggled in his adjustment to the NBA. The physical aspect, the travel, the games and even the rules changes all proved vexing to him during the season. It's not easy being a teenager in the NBA and Dragan is still only 19 and won't turn 20 until after the next season begins. They limited his exposure in games and minutes on the floor, they obviously didn't think extended game exposure would be that beneficial to him at this...   [read more]
