NBA FREE PICK: Take Chicago. According to latest NBA trends, Chicago is 5-1 ATS last 6 Saturday games, and 5-2 ATS last 7 on the road in series. Brooklyn is 1-4 ATS last 5 playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS last 5 following an ATS win.
The Bulls nearly beat Brooklyn at home on Thursday night without Deng, who had a spinal tap. Deng is not likely to play though he's considered questionable with an illness. Amazingly, the Bulls lost by just three points with all their issues because Carlos Boozer had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Joakim Noah produced 14 points and 15 boards. In Game 5, Brooklyn destroyed the Bulls but that was after the three-overtime game where Chicago was spent, especially Kirk Hinrich. The veteran guard will try to play with a calf injury. But the bottom line is that as long as the Bulls have Boozer, Noah, Nate Robinson (18 points last game) and Taj Gibson, who should be close to 100 percent coming off the flu, they will fight until the bitter end. Expect the Bulls to give the Nets all they can handle in Game 7 as they will cover the big number and possible win it outright.
