The Nets are counting on a true home-court advantage against the banged-up Bulls on Saturday night.
Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng made it clear Friday on Twitter that the illness that kept him out of a playoff game against the Brooklyn Nets was far more serious than the flu.
Now both Brooklyn and Chicago face do-or-die scenarios, and you would think that the Nets should have the momentum.
The most pressing matter for Brooklyn is trying to find a way to win in Chicago, something it hasn’t done this season. The Nets dropped both regular-season matchups there and lost Games 3 and 4.
Game 4 hurt the Nets physically and mentally, but there’s nothing they can do about it. They’re focused on Game 5 in Brooklyn.
Do you think Carlesimo should return to the Nets in 2013-14?
Joe Johnson’s inspiration wasn’t enough as the Brooklyn Nets lost Game 4 in triple OT. The Bulls take a 3-1 series lead.
Strategically speaking, I can’t imagine a worse matchup — outside of Miami — for the Nets, who lost three of four to Chicago during the regular season.
Nate Robinson scored a season-high 35 points and the Chicago Bulls stopped another lengthy winning streak, rallying to beat New York 118-111 in overtime Thursday and end the Knicks’ 13-game run.
A new city, arena and roster have stepped up new expectations. It’s no longer acceptable for the Nets to merely beat up on the weak. This team is built to contend now.
Turnovers cost the Nets as the Bulls won 83-82.
Knicks’ shooters went cold on Saturday night as the Bulls snapped the Knicks’ five-game winning streak.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson is facing a possible fine after a police officer says he caught him urinating in public in White Plains.
Nate Robinson scored eight of his points in the first 4 minutes of the game. His 3-pointer with 7:48 left in the first period gave Boston an 11-8 lead that they would never relinquish.
The Boston Celtics may be without Rajon Rondo again, but so far Nate Robinson is filling in nicely. Facing the New Jersey Nets may soften the blow of another absence by the NBA’s assists leader.
