Brooklyn Nets vs. Chicago Bulls Series Preview

What do these stats tell us?

The main thing I take away from these stats is that this is going to be an ugly, competitive series. These are two of the best rebounding teams in the league and they are two of the bigger teams in the league. Both teams are in the bottom 4 in the league in terms of pace, so don’t expect to see many fast breaks. The biggest difference between the teams is that the Nets are much better on offense while the Bulls are much better on defense, which of course can all change if/when Derrick Rose returns. However, the Nets’ offense has looked great over the last couple of weeks. The key to the series may be if the Nets can keep that up or if the Bulls will ruin Brooklyn’s rhythm.
