Bulls and Nets Play Game Seven TonightNEW YORK (AP) - Time for the Nets' biggest game in Brooklyn.
They have brought their first-round playoff series against Chicago to a Game 7, a victory away from equaling the biggest comeback in NBA history. And they've brought it back home, where Barclays Center has to be more than a beautiful, $1 billion building.
They are counting on a true home-court advantage against whichever banged-up Bulls can take the floor Saturday night. Interim coach P.J. Carlesimo says he is "very confident our guys are going to take advantage of the opportunity and continue to do what they've done all year."
Chicago hopes to have Kirk Hinrich (bruised left calf) back, but Luol Deng (illness) may be forced to spend Friday in a hospital and his availability is unknown.
