The Brooklyn Nets continue their 3-game road trip with an afternoon tilt at United Center against the Chicago Bulls. Tip is set for 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

The Brooklyn Nets will reach the midway point of the season Sunday afternoon when they square off with the Chicago Bulls at United Center.

It is the second and final meeting between the teams at Chicago this season, with two meetings coming up in Brooklyn on Jan. 29 and Feb. 8.

The Nets (19-21) come in with two straight wins and 11 victories in their last 14 games, including getting their current three-game road swing started Friday with a 109-100 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

More from Nothin' But Nets

The Bulls (10-29) have lost their last two games and four of their last five, dropping a 119-116 overtime decision at home to the Indiana Pacers Friday night.

D’Angelo Russell scored 23 points with 10 assists to lead Brooklyn past the Grizzlies Friday night, with DeMarre Carroll coming off the bench for 20 points. The Nets led throughout the fourth quarter and put the game away with a late 9-2 run to build a 12-point cushion.

Jarrett Allen finished with 12 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks for Brooklyn.

Against Indiana on Friday, Zach LaVine drained a 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and Chicago erased a six-point deficit in the final 45.9 seconds. But Victor Oladipo banked in a 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds to go in overtime to lift the Pacers to the win.

LaVine paced the Bulls with 31 points and Lauri Markkanen had 27 points and nine rebounds. Kris Dunn went for 16 points and a career-high 17 assists, while Wendell Carter Jr. finished with 15 points and three steals.

Since coming to the NBA in 1976, the Nets are 75-92 against Chicago and have won the last four meetings between the teams.

The Bulls’ 12-game winning streak from Feb. 16, 1991, to Dec. 29, 1993, is the longest by either team in the series. The New Jersey Nets posted eight straight wins from Dec. 23, 2003, to Nov. 5, 2005.

Chicago’s 140-96 win at home on Jan. 4, 1992, is the most points scored by a team in the series as well as the most lopsided game between the clubs.

The Nets scored a 135-133 overtime win at Piscataway on Feb. 11, 1981, for their highest-scoring game of the series. A 130-104 win at East Rutherford on Jan. 14, 1982, marked the most points the team has scored in a regulation game.

The franchise’s biggest win over the Bulls was a 119-86 triumph at East Rutherford on Feb. 23, 1983.

There is little surprise to the fact that Michael Jordan has the series scoring mark with 58 points on Feb. 26, 1987, in a victory at Chicago. Vince Carter scored 43 points for New Jersey in an April 11, 2006, loss at Chicago.

In the Brooklyn era, the Nets are 9-13 against the Bulls, with their current four-game winning streak matching Chicago’s four-game run from March 2, 2013, to Feb. 13, 2014 as the longest since the 2012 move.

Brooklyn’s 124-96 win at Chicago on April 7 is the highest-scoring game as well at the Nets’ largest margin of victory since the team left New Jersey. The Bulls have twice scored 118 points, most recently in a 118-88 win on Oct. 31, 2016.

Chicago has the most lopsided decision since the move, a 112-73 victory at Chicago on April 12, 2017.

Allen Crabbe has the top scoring performance since 2012 with his 41 points for the Nets at Barclays Center in an April 9 win. Jimmy Butler scored 40 for the Bulls in a Dec. 28, 2016, win at Chicago.
