Since John Wall has returned the ball has been moving better than before, with the Wizards averaging 25 assists per game, which would be third in the NBA behind San Antonio (26.1) and Atlanta (25.9).

The Wizards had 29 assists in their 114-101 victory over Minnesota but they will have a difficult challenge on Saturday against the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls allow the fewest assists per game, holding opponents to just assists. They also rank third in defensive efficiency rating, allowing 97.6 points per 100 possessions.

With Wall, the Wizards have an offensive efficiency rating of 103 (points per 100 possessions). They will look to extend their home winning streak to five games as they host Chicago, which will be without all-star forward Luol Deng. Deng will miss his fifth consecutive with a right hamstring injury.

“I think we just got a good chemistry going and everybody wants to win,” Wall said.
