The Chicago Bulls host the Washington Wizards in Game 5 on Tuesday night, and they know that they must win in order to stay in the series.
The Wizards have made the playoffs for the first time since 2008, and behind the likes of John Wall, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza and Nene, they have taken a 3-1 lead against the Bulls.
Chicago were able to overcome the loss of Derrick Rose to another season-ending knee injury back in November, while Luol Deng was traded earlier this year which seemingly left them in a transitional period looking at next season.
However, coach Tom Thibodeau kept his men focused and they proved the doubters wrong, however they are now in deep trouble in terms of extending their playoff journey.
Only eight teams have won a series after falling behind 3-1, the most recent being the Phoenix Suns in the first round against the Los Angeles Lakers in 2006.
Thibodeau insists that his belief in his group will not waver, but after failing to get the better of Washington without the suspended Nene, they look as though they will struggle to overcome the odds this time round.
Having failed to limit the Wizards from beyond the arc as well as being dominated inside the paint on the defensive end, the Bulls have struggled to get points without a go-to option.
D.J. Augustin and Taj Gibson continue to provide the spark off the bench, but ultimately they will need more from the likes of Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer, and a win to make it 3-2 could make a few people in Washington nervous heading back for Game 6.
Nene returns to give the visitors a full-strength line-up, and it remains to be seen whether or not the pressure of a close-out game is too much for them.
