I've made it clear I'm not a fan of the Wizards and their lack of depth makes me fade them as much as possible. However, let's not act like the Bulls are tearing things up, and they can have sloppy stretches of ball as well. I'm not giving away double-digit points in this spot, but this is probably a game you'd want to avoid if you had a choice.
