The Bulls will have one more chance to close the series out before they become in danger of being ousted themselves in a Game 7. Check out NBA playoff odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
Brooklyn (2-3) was able to hold off one elimination game on their home court in Brooklyn but now will have to go to Chicago and try and push a Game 7 that will be back in the Barclays Center. The Nets blew the Bulls out in the fourth quarter, outscoring them 33-18 to win 110-91. Brook Lopez, who is really developing into one of the best offensive big men in all of basketball, had 28 points on 11-20 shooting and had 10 rebounds to go along with that. Deron Williams also had a double-double. Williams scored 23 and had 10 assists. Game 6 is going to be tough for the Nets but a win would give them a magnificent chance in the final game of the series on their home floor.
The Bulls (3-2) are looking to close things out in six games on their home floor. If they do pick up the win, they will move on to play the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs. There is word that former MVP, Derrick Rose, could be back for that second round series. In Game 5, Nate Robinson got the start and scored 20 points in 44 minutes.
The Nets have covered the spread in three out of the five games in this series.
I really want this series to go seven games but I think the Bulls win at home. If they don’t, Brooklyn will win this series but I see Chicago winning and moving on but first check out sportsbook reviews.
