Last Minute Preview: The Bulls bounced back nicely after their loss last week against the Sixers winning two in a row. They are looking to make it three in a row against the Nets which should happen. The Nets are not good and even if Derrick Rose’s back is banged up, he should still dominate a Nets team that seems to be just twiddling their fingers until they get Dwight Howard. Chicago should dominate this game without much trouble.

 

Prediction:  Bulls 105, Nets 91
