=== Washington Wizards Team Report – January 20 ===

(Sports Network) – Larry Hughes had a game-high 25 points to lead the
Washington Wizards to a 93-83 win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday at MCI
Center.

Juan Dixon added 17 points and Etan Thomas netted 13 points and eight boards
for the Wizards, who have won two straight following a three-game losing
streak.

Jarvis Hayes added 12 points and 14 boards in the win.

“We’re trying to get it turned around some kind of way,” said Hayes of the
two-game winning streak. “We have to start somewhere, so the other night
against Seattle was a good start.”

The Wizards were 20-of-28 (71 percent) from the foul line in Monday’s win.
Washington has captured six of the last eight meetings overall and five
straight at home over the Bulls.

Hughes, who is Washington’s top scorer this season, is averaging 27.8 points
in his last six games.

Washington is off until Friday when it visits Atlantic Division rival Boston.
