For two consecutive games in their first-round playoff series against the Wizards, the Bulls have been let down by their scoring-challenged offense down the stretch.
After falling in the first game of the series the Bulls will look to even things up against the Wizards in Game 2 tonight at 8:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet.
The first-round matchup between the Bulls and Wizards pitted two of the NBA's best defensive teams against one another.
No Derrick Rose, no Luol Deng, no problem.
The fact the Bulls were facing a Western Conference power is mitigated by their three-day break leading up to Friday night’s 91-74 loss to the Trail Blazers at the United Center.
