Bulls Try To Even Up Series Tonight Against Nets
The Bulls, who are still banged up with injuries, will again be without Derrick Rose, who’s not expected to be back until the preseason for ’13-’14. Joakim Noah is expected to start, though it’s unsure how much of a factor he’ll be due to his lingering right foot injury.
For as good as the Bulls’ defense had been this season, they allowed the Nets to shoot 56% from the floor, and Brooklyn had 6 players in double figures scoring. This is the Nets first playoff appearance since 2007, and they’re going for their first 2-0 series lead since 2004.
