Bulls in 6. Noah/Gibson's health issues will linger, leading to a couple of losses. The Bulls as a whole though matchup better against the Nets than any other playoff team in the East (even more than the Bucks). Butler and Deng will dominate Johnson/Wallace. Boozer will also own Evans a good amount.
Booz averages 23/10 in the 6 games.
Noah averages 7/13 in the 6 games.
Butler averages 15/8 in the 6 games.
Deng averages 18/7 in the 6 games.
Nate averages 17/6 in the 6 games.
Hinrich averages 6/8 in the 6 games.
Marco/Gibson/Rip/Nazr provide a combined 15 points per game in the series as well.
its all on Brook Lopez aka baby Tim Duncan and DWilliams. If we stop Williams we win in 6, If we keep Lopez and Mr. Kardashian off the glass we can sweep. Oh,yeah double team trap NJ backup his handles are more suspect than DWills, or force him to drive since he is a jumpshooter and not a set up man.Deng needs to hit the glass,Boozer needs to play Defense and use his skills to score in the POST and go to the FT line. This is a tough one to call.
Gonna be a tough series for the Bulls. Deron has been just plain frightening since the all-star break. Luckily, I think Kirk can somewhat limit him, Butler can limit JJ, and Noah and Taj will be able to limit Brook. However, Gerald Wallace will make life uneasy for Boozer, who tends to have trouble against quicker forwards. Booz and Noah will have to use their size and rebound over everyone else, which won't be easy since Brooklyn is the 3rd best rebounding team in the league. And finally, Noah will need to be offensively minded, try to score on Brook and get him in foul trouble if possible.
