Bulls

The shorthanded Bulls were charged up Tuesday after Nene talked some trash ahead of the game. But the Bulls shut down Nene and got big performances from their own big men to beat the Wizards, 97-92.
Tom Thibodeau wouldn't take the bait on Nene's comments regarding hating the Bulls. The head coach knows talking only goes so far; it's what the Bulls do on the floor that'll count.
Jimmy Butler's elbow has gotten markedly better in a 24-span, giving the Bulls star reason for optimism, though he won't change his 3-6 week timetable.
