Brooklyn Nets/Chicago Bulls: Game 6 -       I am picking both road teams tonight. I would have picked the Nets even before I learned Luol Deng was not playing. Last night I recorded a podcast where I compared these Nets to the 2006 Phoenix Suns who came back from 3-1 down against the L.A. Lakers. I just think the Nets are the better team and that they will win the series. For the record, I feel the same about the Nuggets. -       Not sure if Joakim Noah is still supposed to be on a minutes restriction, but they will probably have to throw that out the window tonight. -       It feels like the Nets should be winning by at least 15, but they are letting the Bulls hang around. That is dangerous when you are on the road and you know what Nate Robinson can wants to do. -       During poor free throw shooting performances, I cannot help but think of the Charles Barkley commercial remix: “Make ya, make ya free throws.” -       Props to the Bulls for forcing Andra
