Bradley Beal is averaging 24.1 points while Kyle Kuzma is averaging 14.8 points per game. Montrezl Harrell is the third double-digit with 14.5 points per game.
As a team, the Wizards are shooting 32.5% from beyond the arc and 76.9% from the free-throw line.

The Wizards are ranked #22nd in offense and 20th in defense and the Bulls are ranked #10th in offense and 14th in defense.
The Wizards will be eager for revenge here after losing to the Bulls on a last-second shot a few days ago. However, the Bulls are so hot right now, I’m not eager to step in front of them, especially at home where they win by an average of 6.2 points. The Washington Wizards are 7-13-1 against the spread on the road. Our prediction is a win for the hottest team at the moment, the Bulls!
