NBA FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest NBA trends, Chicago is 1-6 Under last 7 games after allowing more than 125 points in their previous game, 2-6 Under last 8 road games and 14-30-1 Under last 45 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. Brooklyn is 2-5 Under last 7 games after allowing more than 125 points in their previous game.

Chicago (48-38 SU, 38-48 ATS, 39-46-1 O/U) is hoping to close out the series, while Brooklyn (50-36 SU, 41-42-3 ATS, 43-42-1 O/U) looks to bounce back from a devastating Game 4 loss. Both these teams should be worn out after a three-overtime slugfest on Saturday. Yes, it went well over the total but Chicago somehow scored 35 points in the fourth quarter to come back from a 14-point deficit led by Nate Robinson's 23 points. In this game, Chicago will not have point guard Kirk Hinrich, who played 60 minutes in Game 4 and will miss this contest due to a calf injury. Deron Williams played 58 minutes and Brook Lopez played 51 for the Nets. The Bulls are running out of healthy bodies. The Bulls take on the Nets from Barclays Center on Monday at 7pmET.
