WIZARDS PLAYER OF THE GAME

Kevin Seraphin hands down. The rapidly emerging Wizards big man dominated the Bulls down low, scoring 21 points and grabbing 13 rebounds, including 8 offensive. Seraphin also achieved his second 5-block game in 3 games. 

WE’s TO WATCH/WE SPOTLIGHT

The matchup between Kevin Seraphin and Joakim Noah was an intriguing one going into the game. Seraphin's recent emergence was on full display against the Bulls' all-star center and his production was the cornerstone of the Wizards' dominance in the paint. Noah finished with only 6 points, but had 11 rebounds and matched Seraphin in blocks with 5.   

THE GOOD

On the verge of another collapse following the third quarter, the Wizards dug DEEP into their depth chart for a spark and they got one from none other than Mo Evans and Brian Cook. A couple 3's by the duo keyed an 11-0 run early in the 4th and set the tone for the rest of the game. Evans scored 10 of his 14 points in the final period.

THE BAD

Seven turnovers including a couple shot-clock and traveling violations, 29 percent shooting from the field and a four-minute scoring drought made up for another terrible third quarter for the Wiz. Their 14 total points in the quarter paved the way for a nine-point turnaround in the game as the Bulls who trailed by three at halftime, had a six point lead going into the fourth, at which point  Mo Evans had had enough.

THE UGLY

Jordan Crawford. When your coach decides to replace you with a second point guard in the lineup during the final minutes of a close game you know you've had a bad game. JC was abismal from the field missing 11 of his 13 shots and all of his three's. He finished with only 9 points.
