The Nets travel to Chicago to take on the young Bulls at the United Center. New Jersey swept the season series last year as Chicago finished with the second worst record in the NBA. The Bulls start 2 rookies, Luol Deng and Andres Nocioni, and a third, Ben Gordon should see major playing time as well. The Nets need to step up their defense from Wednesday's performance against Miami. Lawrence Frank says he will go with the same starting line-up as Wednesday, despite the poor performance from Eric Williams, and quality minutes from Zoran Planinic off the bench.
