Right now, we really don't know if Derrick Rose is going to play in this series or not. If he does, it's really not good news for the Nets at all
Heading into tonight's final day of the regular season, the only thing that the Nets knew about their 1st round matchup in the playoffs was that it would start at the Barclays Center, either this Saturday or Sunday, and that it would be against either the Bulls or the Hawks, depending on how those teams did in their final games. Now, after all those games have been played and the standings tabulated, the Nets will be playing the Bulls on Saturday in Brooklyn, while the Hawks are matched-up with the Pacers.
If the Nets were to luck out and draw the Hawks in the 1st round, Atlanta would have had to beat the Knicks at MSG and the Bulls lose to the Wizards in Chicago at the United Center. Neither of those things happened tonight, as the Knicks edged the Hawks 98-92 while the Bulls staved off a pesky Washingt...

Derrick Rose news?
I “DONNNNNNNNN’TTTTTT CARRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE” (credit Jay Cutler) when it comes to Derrick Rose return/rehabilitation coverage. I’ve been nauseated by the story for over a month already. Seriously, right now, I don’t want to even hear the name Derrick Rose until Bulls Media Day in October.

After losing four of five, Chicago (44-37) seemed to...

Two words could easily sum up the 2013 NBA playoffs: Miami Heat.
