DeMar DeRozan sounds off in frustration after Bulls loss to Wizards

Looking to bounce back from their brutal loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday night, the Chicago Bulls welcomed the Washington Wizards to town on Monday night. The Wizards, one of the worst teams in the NBA, had won two straight games, and unfortunately for the Bulls, Washington took them down, winning three games in a row for the first time this season.

Washington took home a 107-105 win over Chicago, and while the Bulls made it a competitive game down the stretch, they were down by as many as 16 points during the game. As the Bulls fight for their spot in the 9-10 Play-In game, they need every win they can get.

“We shouldn’t drop games like this right now,” DeRozan said. “We’re resilient, but we can’t live on the edge every single game. We can lose to any single team any night. That’s the NBA. We’ve got to be aware of that. We’ve got to leave it out there these last 10 games. Can’t have no more excuses.”

DeRozan finished the game with 27 points, two rebounds, six assists, and five steals while shooting 9-of-22 from the field and 1-of-4 from beyond the three-point arc.
