The NBA Playoffs are here and the Chicago Bulls will be facing the Brooklyn Nets! Take at a look at some of the teams statistics for this season and some key factors that might play a role in the outcome of the series:
Brooklyn: 49-33, fourth seed in East
Chicago: 45-37, fifth seed in East
The Bulls won 3-1, but one win came by one and another came by two.
Chicago: Derrick Rose is out until he’s not, and at this point, the Bulls can’t really worry about him. They can, however, fret about Joakim Noah, who might miss Game 1, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
OFFENSE/DEFENSE RANKINGS (points per 100 possession)
Brooklyn: offense 105.0 (9th best in NBA), defense 103.6 (18th in NBA)
Chicago: offense 100.4 (24th in NBA), defense 100.3 (5th in NBA)
Differential: Nets +1.4 (12th in NBA), Bulls +0.1 (15th in NBA)
THREE KEYS FOR BROOKLYN:
Follow Reggie Evans’ lead: Playing a team as physical and hard-working as Chicago at least four games in a row will be a shock to the system for the Nets, but they can’t let it overwhelm them. They should look to Reggie Evans, who embraces physical play and even dishes out his share of physicality. If his teammates wilt under that pressure, this will be a long series for Brooklyn. If they embrace it, their talent will give them the edge.
THREE KEYS FOR CHICAGO:
Pressure Deron Williams: The questions about Williams being out of shape have quieted since Avery Johnson was fired, but there’s no denying Williams struggled early in the season. If Williams upped his workouts to get back in shape during the season, perhaps he’ll run out of gas as he plays more than he has in a few years. It’s worth the Bulls’ effort to try to gas him. Either way, whatever the Bulls can do to get the ball away from the Nets’ playmaker – who especially excels in the halfcourt offense typically featured during the playoffs – the better.
