NBA Playoffs: Bulls get road win to even series

Updated on April 22, 2013

A bad shooting night on the part of the Brooklyn Nets gave Chicago a chance an they took advantage. With a balanced attack Chicago even their best of seven series at one game a piece and will head bacto home looking to put series out of reach.

The Bulls had five players in double figures with none scoring more than 15 points to grab the victory. Playing without their star point guard like the have all season nobody gave them a chance in this series. After game one it looked like this series could be over fairly quick but with their balanced scoring and great defense they look to prove every one wrong.

For the second game in a row Carlos Boozer was off a little for the Bulls in scoring with only 13 points, he also grabbed a team high 12 rebounds. Thru two games he is averaging 19 points and ten rebounds. L. Deng rebounded from his terrible game one performance to lead the Bulls with 15 points, he also had a double-double with ten boards. J. Noah was the third Bulls player to get a double-double with his 11 points and ten rebounds. Kirk Hinrich scored 13 and Nate Robinson chipped in 11.

Chicago still struggled from the free throw and three point line but with Brooklyn unable to hit anything their performance was just enough to get the win. They are 5-20 from the three point line in the series and only 28-45 from the charity strip. For them to have any chance at winning this series these numbers will have to improve.

One thing I love about this team is their balance attack, thru two games eight players are averaging more than seven and half points a game. To me that gives you great confidence knowing that at anytime you have scorers on the court.

Brooklyn went from 56% shooting in game one to 35% for game two. I do not see the latter happening enough for the Bulls to count on that to win series. Chicago needs to keep the strong defense going at home on Thursday and Saturday to take control of series. After game one I would have said Nets in five but if Bulls play strong look for a seven game dog fight here.
