Belinelli scores 17 in Bulls' win over Wizards

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Marco Belinelli came off the bench to score 17 points and lead the Chicago Bulls to an 87-77 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.

Carlos Boozer added 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls (16-12), who snapped a 2-game losing streak. Belinelli made 7 of 16 shots in a reserve role as Richard Hamilton returned to the starting lineup. Hamilton had missed 12 games because of a torn plantar fascia in his left foot.

Chicago's Luol Deng scored 11 points after injuring his right ankle Tuesday in a loss to Houston.

Bradley Beal led the NBA-worst Wizards (4-24) with 14 points. Emeka Okafor added 11 points and 18 rebounds for Washington, which has lost 9 of 10.

Wizards leading scorer Jordan Crawford, averaging 16 points per game, sat out because of a left ankle injury.
