Wizards halt Bulls’ winning streak at five games

– John Wall and Nene had 19 points apiece, Trevor Ariza scored 16 and the Washington Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 102-88 on Monday night.

The Wizards led by 13 early in the fourth quarter and hung on after Chicago made one final push, ending the Bulls’ five-game win streak.

Nene scored eight points in the final period and Bradley Beal came on strong down the stretch to finish with 13. He hit a jumper and three-pointer during a nine-point run that bumped Washington’s lead to 96-82 with about 3 minutes left after Chicago pulled within five.

Wall scored four points during that spurt and had seven assists in the game.

Ariza hit a trio of three-pointers and the Wizards came away with the victory after dropping five of seven.
