WASHINGTON (AP) — Derrick Rose scored 25 points and Pau Gasol had 18 as the Chicago Bulls won their fourth straight, beating the Washington Wizards 99-91 on Tuesday night.
After Washington scored 12 straight — 10 by John Wall — to take an 87-86 lead with 3:44 remaining, Chicago steadied and scored eight straight — six by Rose to lead 94-87 with 1:48 to play.
Wall led the Wizards with 18 points.
The Bulls outrebounded Washington 52-41.
On Monday, Chicago scored a franchise-record 49 points in the fourth quarter as they beat Toronto 129-120. Points were harder to come by a night later.
