Chicago Bulls vs. Washington Wizards: Postgame Recap and Grades

The Chicago Bulls squared off with the Washington Wizards for the first-ever NBA game in Brazil. They survived a fourth-quarter surge to win the game 83-81 and take their preseason record to 3-0.

The Brazilian crowd was disappointed to learn that Derrick Rose, who had a sore knee, wasn’t going to be playing, as there was a bit of a groan from the crowd when he wasn’t introduced. Joakim Noah, who has yet to play, also missed the game with a groin pull.

Kirk Hinrich and Nazr Mohammed capably started in their places. They were sufficient to carry the Bulls to victory, although they missed their dynamic duo—more because of the lack of Mohammed and Hinrich on the bench than because of any struggles from the starters.

Here are game grades for each member of the starting five, as well as one for the bench as a whole.
