Chicago Bulls/Brooklyn Nets: Game 5
- Kirk Hinrich is out for tonight. That means that the leash is off Nate Robinson for an entire game. There is no question Robinson loves to let it fly. The question becomes whether or not we will see the Robinson that lit it up at the end of Game 4 or a crazy, erratic Robinson.
- The other day I wrote about who you would want taking a wide-open three-pointer. If you absolutely needed a rebound, would you want anyone other than Reggie Evans? That guy is a machine dedicated to only one thing.
- It is hard to really say a game is won in this series. Have to hold on until it’s a sure thing. With a 14-point lead and 1:15 to go, I would say that is a sure thing. Or would I….?
- The Bulls managed to just hang around all game, finally made their run at the end of the third quarter and into the fourth to get within one, then it seems like they just ran out of gas. Nets end the game on a 17-3 run

His 23 points in the fourth quarter nearly broke a playoff record...
SHAKE HIM OFF
One of the great things that has come from the Brooklyn Nets/Chicago Bulls series is the re-emergence of Bulls guard Nate Robinson. In the third quarter of game four, Robinson showed Nets guard Deron Williams that his speed might be the most dangerous thing about him. Watch as Nate crosses Williams over and scores on a scooping lay-up:

Brooklyn Nets/Chicago Bulls: Game 4
- Feel like this series has been impossible to predict because we do not know which Bulls team will show up.
- Finally got a “fight” in the playoffs. Not the series I would have predicted, but I will take it!
- Nate Robinson is singlehandedly bringing the Bulls back in this game. My NBA history is not good, but has there...

Then news broke that...
The Chicago Bulls had a chance to put away the Brooklyn Nets. Instead, they stumbled.
Their first-round series shifts back to Chicago for Game 6 on Thursday, and the Bulls look like a team that could be in trouble even though they lead 3-2.
That's because Kirk Hinrich was sidelined by a calf injury. Joakim Noah still seems limited by a foot problem, and instead of putting away...
