Despite winning four more regular season games than the Washington Wizards no one should be surprised if the Bulls are knocked out in round one.
Chicago is the worst offensive team in the NBA playoffs. They were the worst shooting team in the entire league this season. D.J. Augustin is their number one scoring option at this point.
On Washington’s side is Nene Hilario. After missing 6 weeks due to injury he played great in their last four games of the year (14 points/game, 66% FG). The Wizards lineup with Nene at the four was a great defensive unit (98 points allowed/100 possessions).
Don’t expect big scoring numbers from the Wizards throughout the playoffs but it will be hard to score on them with a healthy Nene and Marcin Gortat protecting the basket.
