=== Washington Wizards Team Report – December 4 ===

(Sports Network) – The Washington Wizards will try for their first four-game
winning streak in nearly two years when they battle the Chicago Bulls at the
MCI Center this evening.

The Wizards won their third straight game on Friday night, as they pounded the
Atlanta Hawks, 114-90, at Philips Arena. Larry Hughes scored 19 points to lead

Juan Dixon added 17 points off the bench for the Wizards, who have also won
six of their last seven games. Gilbert Arenas chipped in 13 points and eight
assists while Antawn Jamison also contributed 13 points in the win.

Washington hasn’t recorded four consecutive wins since the 2002-03 season,
when it posted five straight victories from December 31-January 8.

Tonight’s game marks the first meeting of the season between the Bulls and
Wizards. Washington took three of four from the Bulls last season and has won
seven of the last nine matchups. Chicago has also been bad in the nation’s
capital, dropping six straight and seven of its last eight in D.C.
