How Brooklyn Wins

Brooklyn will win this game if they start scoring more points. They are only averaging 97.7 points per game and that ranks 20th in the league. To make things worse their opponents are on average outscoring the Nets by 2 points per game. The Nets need to also keep getting to the free throw line. They rank 13th in free throw attempts and free throws made.

 

How Chicago Wins

The Bulls will win this game if they keep playing great defense. They rank 2nd in the league in opponent scoring as they only give up an average of 92.7 points per game. They will also need to find a way to score. The Bulls rank dead last in the league in scoring as they only average 92.3 points per game. The Bulls also need to keep their opponents field goal percentage down. Bulls opponents only shoot about 43.5%  during the game.

 

My Prediction

The Nets want to get their opponent in foul trouble and make free throws. The Bulls want to make this a low scoring defensive game. Whichever team plays to their style will have the best chance in winning the game.

I think that with home court advantage the Bulls play to their defensive style. I think the Bulls will force the Nets to shoot below 44% from the field and by doing that the Bulls get the win.

Final Score

Chicago: 95
Brooklyn: 87
