Chicago is in trouble. After dropping their second straight game at home to the Washington Wizards in overtime on Tuesday, the Bulls are reeling going into Game 3.

The Bulls won their last game in D.C. on April 5, 96-78, but Nene didn't play in that contest, and Chicago has been unable to stop the Wizards' Brazilian big man from doing basically anything he wants in the series.

Over the first two games, Nene has a combined 41 points and 15 rebounds. Washington has found a way to win any way it can on offense. The Bulls forced them to score just 22 points in the paint in Game 2, but the Wizards made up for it by shooting 9-of-23 on three-pointers.

Washington has been itself, a somewhat unsteady offensive group that's given the Bulls fits with spurts of quality shooting. Without the ability to lock down the Wizards defensively, the Chicago offense has had to bear much of the load in the first two games. The Bulls have looked aloof trying to score the ball.

Game 3 will be the real test for both teams. Washington is trying to prove it can be consistent in postseason play, and the Bulls are searching for the defensive efficiency that led them to win 48 games and the No. 4 seed in the East.
