INJURY TO WATCH
Brooklyn power forward Dante Cunningham (back) and center Jahlil Okafor (ankle) are both questionable to play today. Small forward DeMarre Carroll (hip) is out today. Point guard Isaiah Whitehead (wrist) is out indefinitely. Point guard Jeremy Lin (patellar tendon) is out for the season. For Chicago, power forward Noah Vonleh (calf) is questionable. Small forward Paul Zipser (foot) is out indefinitely. Point guard Zach LaVine (knee), small forward Denzel Valentine (knee), point guard Kris Dunn (toe) and shooting guard Antonio Blakeney (wrist) are all out indefinitely.
At least we trust the Nets to play hard to the finish as they don't own their first round draft pick for 2018. The Bulls on the other hand are in full tank mode. Expect very little defense here Brooklyn went over the total in its last game, while Chicago has gone over in two in a row. Defense is an afterthought right now.
