Wizards, up 3-1, 'desperate' entering Game 5
ESPN 562+ SHARES
When the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards tip off at the United Center on Tuesday night for what could be the final game of their first-round series, it might not be easy to identify the more desperate team.
Yet they are the ones trying to work themselves into a frenzy for Game 5. "We have to win one game, and we have to be desperate," coach Randy Wittman said after shootaround Tuesday.
"We have to be the desperate team tonight, coming in here with the attitude that we need to win this game.
That's how we've approached each game in this series so far, and I want them to continue that."
The hungriest of all Wizards players could be Nene, who sat out Game 4 following an on-court altercation with the Bulls' Jimmy Butler.
