Bulls win! 100-97 victory over the Wizards

Throughout this season, at points where matters looked most dire, Tom Thibodeau would reference the losses of Derrick Rose and Luol Deng and talk about the Bulls’ fight.

Never has that trait been more impressively on display than Friday night at Verizon Center.

Not the rule-breaking kind, the kind that sent Nene to the showers with 8 minutes, 28 seconds left after he head-butted Jimmy Butler and could draw Marcin Gortat a one-game suspension for leaving the bench area in the ensuing scuffle.

The Bulls flashed resolve and restraint, digging deep for a gritty 100-97 victory on Butler’s go-ahead 3-pointer with 24.2 seconds remaining.
