The Brooklyn Nets are fresh off of a heart wrenching loss to the Bucks in Milwaukee Friday night and looking to rebound with another victory on their home court.
Brooklyn faces off with the 2-0 Chicago Bulls in Brooklyn Halloween night. The Bulls have looked good this season with production coming from Jimmy Butler, Doug McDermott, Rajon Rondo, and, of course, Dwayne Wade.
The Bulls are looking as good as ever with their new core of guys in Wade and Rondo. Robin Lopez has also been solid as are most Lopez Bro. match-ups. The Bulls have weapons everywhere and they will catch you off guard. Rondo finds his team mates and his team mates are pretty good at making shots.
Brooklyn will have their half of the Lopez Bros. back in action Monday night after a game off to rest up. Jeremy Lin looks to rebound after a poor shooting performance Friday against the Bucks. Lin does look to build upon that 10 assist showing, though. Brook-Lin really will need to dominate this game in order for them to go blow-for-blow with Dwayne Wade and Jimmy Butler.
Brooklyn has shown the fans that their offense is legit scoring over 100 points in all three games thus far. The Nets’ defense has been beaten up most games making it seem like it will be a long night against a fiery Bulls squad.
Brooklyn has also taken a lot of three-point shots so far this season. Their average is not terrible, but it is not good either. Brooklyn needs to start looking for better shots if they want to win some games. Getting outscored 54-42 in the paint to Milwaukee Friday is a part of the reason why Brooklyn lost.
Brook Lopez is back which should help the numbers in the paint. It is forcing the Bulls into mistakes and bad shots that will cause Brooklyn the most issues Monday night.
Remember, it is Halloween night so things may get tricky. Watch for a sneaky Nets victory at home, building upon their momentum their.
