NBA FREE PICK: Take Brooklyn. According to latest NBA trends, Brooklyn is 5-0 ATS last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 ATS last 4 following an ATS win. Chicago is 4-9 ATS last 13 vs. Eastern Conference, 6-20-1 ATS last 27 playing on 2 days rest and 2-5 ATS last 7 home games.
The Nets won Game 5 with ease and now they have to take Game 6 as they are down 3-2 in this series. This series should be over as the Bulls came back from 14 down late in the fourth quarter to force overtime in Game 4 and then won in three overtimes. The Nets need to take advantage of guard Kirk Hinrich's absence (he's a good defender) due to a calf injury. Deron Williams is averaging 27.5 points and 10 assists in his last two games. He'll be tough to defend as Marco Belinelli and Nate Robinson will have to try and stop the burly guard. The Bulls allowed the Nets to shoot 50 percent for the night, and got destroyed on the boards. Brooklyn outrebounded Chicago, 44-34, and picked up 17 offensive boards and 54 points in the paint. Expect the Nets to come out on top in a must-win game. The Brooklyn Nets visit the United Center in Chicago to take on the Bulls at 8pmET (TNT) in Game 6 of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
