Wall and Nene lead Wizards over Bulls

CHICAGO — John Wall and Nene had 19 points apiece, Trevor Ariza scored 16 and the Washington Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 102-88 on Monday night.

Nene scored eight points in the final period and Bradley Beal came on strong down the stretch to finish with 13. He hit a jumper and 3-pointer during a nine-point run that bumped Washington's lead to 96-82 with about 3 minutes left after Chicago pulled within five.

Wall scored four points during that spurt and had seven assists in the game.

Ariza hit a trio of 3-pointers and the Wizards came away with the win after dropping five of seven.
