Open Game Thread #23: Bulls at Washington Wizards

[Thanks to Big D for today's game thread. -Matt]

The Bulls will try to get back on the winning track tonight when they face the Washington Wizards (6 PM Central, Comcast Sportsnet).

The Wizards have been one of the surprises of the league so far.  They've won 13 of their last 18 games, despite the fact that Gilbert Arenas is out for the next few months.  One of the big reasons is Caron Butler - he's taken another big step up, and currently has the 17th best PER in the league at 22.48.  I tend to doubt he can play that well all season, but while he is, it's not surprising that the Wizards are continuing to win games.

The Wizards haven't played since Saturday, while the Bulls played last night, so I suppose somebody might try to use that as an excuse if the Bulls lose.  I don't know about that - at the very least, you'd think Ben Wallace should be fresh.  It's not like he played last night (Update: He won't be playing tonight either; he's out with a foot injury. Nocioni will start in his place.).  Regardless, it would probably be a good idea for the Bulls to win this game, considering their next three games are at Boston, home against Houston, and at San Antonio.  They were already back to .500 by this point last year, so the "it's early" excuse doesn't really fly anymore.  They're not even close to .500 yet, and if they don't start playing much better they could find themselves in a big hole soon.
