Matchup to Watch
Joakim Noah vs. Bismack Biyombo: The Bulls looked flat losing to the Bobcats on New Year’s Eve in Chicago and no Bull seemed flatter than Noah that day. But he fell a point short of a triple-double Saturday in Washington (nine points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists).
• That victory in Chicago broke an 18-game overall losing streak for the Bobcats.
• The Bobcats still owe the Bulls a future first-round pick to complete the trade for Tyrus Thomas, who slips in and out of Charlotte’s rotation.
• The victory in Chicago broke a five-game losing streak to the Bulls.
The Bulls scored just 73 points Saturday to lose by 13 in Washington. Chicago went 11 straight possessions in that game without scoring.
• The Bulls are still without superstar point guard Derrick Rose, recovering from knee surgery.
Did you know?
The Bulls have won 40 straight games when scoring 100 or more points. Not good news considering the Bobcats have given up 100 or more points in 22 of their past 27 games.
