The Brooklyn Nets host the Chicago Bulls at Barclays Center Tuesday night looking for a 6th consecutive win over their Eastern Conference rival.

The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls meet Tuesday night for the third time this season, with both teams coming in off losses.

That’s about the only similarity between the two teams at this point. The Nets (27-24) have won six of their last eight games and are 10-3 in January, tied for the third-best record in the NBA this month.

Chicago (11-39) has dropped three straight and 13 of its last 14 games. The Bulls’ 1-12 record in January is the worst in the league.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn has won five straight against the Chicago, including two wins at United Center earlier this season. The Nets lost Monday on the road to the Boston Celtics 112-104, while the Bulls took a 104-101 loss at home to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday.

The Nets shot just 37.9 percent at Boston Monday night as the Celtics blocked 16 shots — a Brooklyn era record for a Nets opponent. Brooklyn briefly led in the third quarter, but Boston controlled the game most of the way.

D’Angelo Russell led the Nets with 25 points and three steals and Shabazz Napier added 20 points and five assists. Ed Davis had 11 rebounds, Jarrett Allen grabbed 10 boards and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finished with 14 points and two blocks.

At Chicago Sunday, Alec Burks knocked down a putback jumper with 17 seconds left to give Cleveland the lead. Kris Dunn had a chance to put the Bulls back on top, but missed a layup with 8.4 seconds remaining.

Matthew Dellavedova‘s two free throws with 4.7 seconds to go gave the Cavaliers a three-point lead and Zach LaVine missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer in a game that featured 23 lead changes and 14 ties.

Lauri Markkanen paced Chicago with 21 points and 14 rebounds. LaVine finished with 17 points and 12 boards, Dunn had seven assists and two blocks and Robin Lopez logged 16 points and four blocked shots.

Even with their recent success, the Nets are 76-92 against Chicago since coming into the NBA in 1976. The Bulls have the longest winning streak, taking 12 straight games from Feb. 16, 1991, to Dec. 29, 1993. The Nets’ longest string was eight straight victories from Dec. 23, 2003, to Nov. 5, 2005.

Chicago owns the highest-scoring game and the most one-sided victory, both posted in a 140-96 win at Chicago on Jan. 4, 1992.

The high mark for the Nets came in a 135-133 overtime win at Piscataway on Feb. 11, 1981. In regulation, New Jersey had a 130-104 victory at East Rutherford on Jan. 14, 1982.

The Nets’ most lopsided win was a 119-86 victory at East Rutherford on Feb. 23, 1983.

Hall of Famer Michael Jordan has the high game in the series with 58 points for the Bulls in a Feb. 26, 1987, win at Chicago. Vince Carter‘s 43 points in an April 11, 2006, loss at Chicago is the most scored by a Net in the series.

Since coming to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are 10-13 against Chicago, with their current five-game winning streak that began on Feb. 26 the longest of the Brooklyn era.

The Bulls won four in a row from March 2, 2013, to Feb. 13, 2014.

The highest-scoring game for Brooklyn is also their largest margin of victory of the Brooklyn era, coming in a 124-96 win at Chicago on April 7. The Bulls have a pair of 118-point games, most recently in a 118-88 victory at Barclays Center on Halloween night in 2016.

Individually, Allen Crabbe‘s 41 points for the Nets in a win at Barclays Center on April 9 is the most by a player in the Brooklyn era. Chicago’s top-scoring game came from Jimmy Butler, who scored 40 points in a win at Chicago on Dec. 28, 2016.
