The Chicago Bulls unceremoniously lost two games at home to start their best-of-seven series versus the Washington Wizards.

NBA: Playoffs-Washington Wizards at Chicago Bulls
On Saturday, the top seed Indiana Pacers evened out their own series versus the Atlanta Hawks even as West’s second seed Oklahoma City Thunder did the same with a victory against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Are the underdogs in the 2013 NBA Playoffs just good for a few surprises in the early part of the series?
The Wizards are hoping that’s not the case when they try to grab the 3-1 series lead without Brazilian big man Nene, who got ejected in Game Three and suspended in Game Four for grabbing Bulls wingman in the head in the previous game.
Even without Nene, both squads are expecting the highly-charged, highly-physical match-up to continue.
"There's a lot of pushing and shoving and talking," said Washington head coach Randy Wittman via NBA.COM. "We just have to be sure we're keeping our composure in that area. I don't want them stepping back at all from a physicality standpoint. Not at all. It just reaches that line, and we've got to know where that line is."
Chicago avoided a 0-3 in the series with a close 100-97 victory in Game Three.
Mike Dunleavy exploded for 35 points in that game hitting 8-of-10 from behind the arc. Butler added 15 markers and 5 boards while Carlos Boozers had 14 points and two-- Taj Gibson and D.J. Augustin scored 13 points apiece off the bench.
