Following their comprehensive win over the New York Knicks on Sunday, the Chicago Bulls travel to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night hoping to extend what is their best stretch of the regular season thus far.
The Bulls (33-26) have won four in a row and nine of their last 10 as they face the Nets having also won four of five on the road, and with confidence high they will be looking to continue to improve.
Tom Thibodeau’s team are known for their defensive solidity, but they have also been finding consistency at the other end of the court with their offensive weapons finding their form.
Nevertheless, all that has developed around center Joakim Noah who is producing “MVP basketball” according to teammate Taj Gibson, with the French star going for 13 points, 12 rebounds and a franchise record 14 assists for a center against the Knicks.
It was his fifth career triple-double, and he will be hoping to continue his form against an Eastern Conference rival which has been performing well of late too.
Brooklyn (28-29) are searching for their fifth consecutive home win and 12th in the last 14 games at the Barclays Center, while they will go for a ninth win in 13 contests overall in order to reach the .500 mark for the first time since November.
While their city rivals continue to falter, coach Jason Kidd has done well to rescue their season, one which threatened to leave them without playoff basketball at an early stage.
However, they have restored some confidence despite injuries continuing to distract them, and this clash promises to be an intriguing contest between two highly talented and focused teams.
