Brooklyn vs. Chicago
The Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls has been an exciting series. With the deciding game 7 tonight the pressure is squarely on the shoulders of Deron Williams. Williams has shown flashes of brilliance, but hasn't shown the consistency of a supersatar. Perhaps playing in New York and living up to that massive contract he signed in the offseason has overwhelmed him. Fortunately Brook Lopez has stepped up and established himself asd one of the elite big men in the game. I'm sure the Nets are glad they didn't trade him for Dwight Howard right about now. On the other side of the ledger the Bulls are a M.A.S.H. unit searching for answers on the offensive side of the court. Nate the Great has bailed them out a few times, but he's not the player you should be depending on to go for 25+ every night. He's much much better if his role is complementary or instant offense off the bench. When he has to be "the guy" his shot selection becomes suspect and the rest of his teammates struggle to find a rythym. That being said anything can happen in a game 7 and I'm sure Nate will go out swinging. In the end however the Nets will win at home and advance to the next round.
