Bulls Crush Short-Handed Nets For the Second Time

Though Derrick Rose left early in the second quarter with back spasms, the Chicago Bulls picked up their second easy win over the Nets at the Prudential Center on Monday night.

The Bulls scored seven points before the Nets even took a shot and led by double-figures less than five minutes into the first quarter. The Nets were down by 20 late in the first quarter and by 30 early in the third.

Chicago shot 56 percent from the field and 9-for-15 from 3-point range. They were led by Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng, who combined for 43 points on 17-for-30 from the field. The Nets shot just 41 percent and were led by Deron Williams, who scored 25 points on 8-for-16, also dishing out five assists. Williams was one of nine players in (retro New York Nets) uniform Monday.
