The search for 10 continues in Chicago Saturday as the Nets look to extend their winning streak to three games and end once and for all any discussion that they're the worst team in NBA history. While the Nets are healthy and coming off their best offensive performance of the season, the Bulls are hurting and hoping to recover from their worst offensive performance. Chicago lost by 29 to Miami on Thursday, shooting a miserable 32.9 percent from the floor. At one point, the Heat were up by 40. Luol Deng remains out, Joakim Noah is playing limited minutes as he recovers from plantar fasciitis, and James Johnson injured his foot on Friday. Derrick Rose returned strong from a wrist injury last week, but shot just 5-16 against the Heat.
Meanwhile, Brook Lopez has looked all-world the last three games, averaging 29.7 points while shooting 63.5 percent. Terrence Williams, who recovered nicely from his ankle injury vs. the Pistons, continues his solid play in March, averaging 13.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists, while hitting 37.5% from deep. And the Bulls were the Nets first road win this season, winning 103-101 on December 8.
