Luol Deng is correct in citing defensive breakdowns as the reason for the Bulls' 109-92 loss Tuesday against the 76ers in Game 2.

But defense shouldn't be his only concern. If the Bulls hope to advance, they'll need better offensive showings from Deng and Carlos Boozer.

The duo went 1-for-6 from the field in the second half for two points. They combined for 17 points overall.

"We've got to play better defense," Deng said. "Offense is not who we are. We've got to take pride in our defense. We've got a lot of different guys who can score, but this is the playoffs. Tonight was embarrassing. All of us. No one is going to feel sorry for us. We all have to step it up."
