CHICAGO -- During a recent rough patch in which they lost six consecutive games, Chicago Bulls star Zach Lavine lamented his team's heartbreaking defeats.
"We just need to dig one out," he told reporters.
Well, from his lips to the basketball God's ears.
After a rough and tumble first half, the Bulls managed to dig one out yesterday at the United Center ans scored a hard-earned 116-105 victory over the Washington Wizards. LaVine, showing leadership by example, led the charge with 30 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.
Closing out halves have been a problem for the Bulls of late but not on this one. They outscored Washington 30-20 in the third quarter and 30-26 in the final 12 minutes.
Even Scott Brooks, the head coach of the visiting Wizards praised Chicago's effort, telling reporters "they were getting in transition, some switches, made tough shots."
The Bulls, who improved to 15-27 to move just four games behind for the eighth and final playoffs berth in the Eastern Conference, shot 50.6 percent from the filed (43 of 85) and 36.8 percent from 3-point distance (14 of 38.) LaVine, meanwhile, made 12 of 21 field goals including six of his 11 treys. Lauri Markannen had 13 and eight rebounds while Tomas Satoransky added 18 and five dimes.
Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 23. At 13-27, the Wizards fell to 12th place in the East, .
