Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Rosenbloom writes:
The Bulls defended and rebounded against the Nets, and waited for the Nets to do dumb things. And the Nets did them.
Such as blowing a 16-point lead at home the last time the teams played. Such as allowing Nazr Mohammed to block Brook Lopez down the stretch. Such as choking against a Bulls team missing Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson, Marco Belinelli, Richard Hamilton and, of course, Rose.
There was one double-digit result in the series, and the Bulls took that one — after the Nets blew an 11-point lead. See what I’m saying?
The Nets might not be Sacramento Kings-like dumb, but when the Nets turn stupid, they usually stay stupid.
