The Chicago Bulls are attractive in the underdog role here, considering they’ve played the better ball. However, the Bulls have fallen off a cliff defensively these last few games, and that’s not what you want to see when going up against a super talented Nets team. The Brooklyn Nets have their issues of their own, but we know it’s only a matter of time before things start to click. I don’t believe the Nets are going to play like this forever. I’ll lay the bucket.
