Chicago Bulls/Brooklyn Nets: Game 5
- Kirk Hinrich is out for tonight. That means that the leash is off Nate Robinson for an entire game. There is no question Robinson loves to let it fly. The question becomes whether or not we will see the Robinson that lit it up at the end of Game 4 or a crazy, erratic Robinson.
- The other day I wrote about who you would want taking a wide-open three-pointer. If you absolutely needed a rebound, would you want anyone other than Reggie Evans? That guy is a machine dedicated to only one thing.
- It is hard to really say a game is won in this series. Have to hold on until it’s a sure thing. With a 14-point lead and 1:15 to go, I would say that is a sure thing. Or would I….?
- The Bulls managed to just hang around all game, finally made their run at the end of the third quarter and into the fourth to get within one, then it seems like they just ran out of gas. Nets end the game on a 17-3 run
- As it has been for the rest of the series, Bulls’ defense is a big story. If they play that swarming style of play that throws Brooklyn off their rhythm, 91 points is enough to win. Instead they lose by 19.
- Six players in double figures for the Nets. Solid team effort. Going to need to kick it up to the next gear though if they want to come back to Brooklyn for a Game 7.
