Chicago vs. Brooklyn,

Score: 90 - 82
Point Spread: -5/-105 Brooklyn
Today's winner is Brooklyn over Chicago. This is my Fast Break Play.
In Game 1, Brooklyn was certainly prepared and well coached for this matchup. The Nets jumped out to a 25 point lead and never looked back. Six players posted double-digits for Brooklyn as emotions ran high for Jay-Z's boys. Think of it, there hasn't been a major win in the 'Da Barra , that's "the borough" for all non-NYC folk since the 1956 World Series. Williams scored 22, Lopez 21, Johnson 16, Watson and Wallace 14 each, and Blatche 12. They hit 55.8% from the field, 43% from three-point land, and 82.4% FTs, pulling down 39 boards, got six steals, and blocked five shots. Being down 1-0, all the Derrick Rose talk is occurring again in the Chicago Bull's camp. He's not going to jeopardize himself guys. He's not playing. That's that. In Game1, Joakim Noah played just 13 minutes and scored only four points which means he is still hampered by that injury. All that aside the Bulls shot just 2 for 8 from beyond the arc and even worse they hit only 68% free throws which on a 15 for 22 performance. They were out of sync and looked lost at times. Kirk Hinrich is slated to play today but did leave Game 1 early with a bruised thigh. But even after 28 minutes the Guard shot 0 for 3 and scored just two points. Most of the Brooklyn team ranges from 6'7" to 6'11" with Lopez being 7'0" and Williams 6'3". The Nets play a very physical game, too physical for the Bulls, frustrating Chicago very badly. Deng was completely shutdown with only 6 points on 3 for 8 shooting. This game will be won in the paint and without Noah being 100% and missing Rose altogether attracting double teams, the Bulls are outgunned here. The Nets are 5-2 ATS their L7 vs. the East and 5-2 ATS their L7 overall. The Bull's are 1-4 ATS the last five versus the East and 1-4 ATS their L5 games played overall. Take Brooklyn. Thank you.
