The Bulls, just a half game behind them, are fighting for relevancy as well. Neither Washington nor Chicago was expected to make much noise this season but both could slip into the playoff picture with a strong second half.
Chicago won the first two matchups between these two teams this season, so Tuesday night's game will prove pivotal if the Wizards hope to hold the tiebreaker over their Eastern Conference rival.
