Winning Streak Comes to an End as Bulls Blow Out Nets

It was fun while it lasted. The Nets' two-game winning streak came to an emphatic end in Chicago on Saturday night, as the Bulls trounced them, 106-83. Chicago took control with an 11-0 run to start the second quarter and led by as many as 21 with a few minutes to go in the half. Three straight threes from Jarvis Hayes to start the third got to the Nets to within seven, but the Bulls quickly opened it back up and cruised to a 23-point win.

The Nets shot just 35 percent from the field and scored just 33 points in the second and third quarters combined. Terrence Williams and Chris Douglas-Roberts picked up enough garbage-time buckets to combine for 29 points off the bench, but 24 hours after their career night, Brook Lopez and Yi Jianlian combined to score just 14 points on 5-20 shooting. The Bulls were led by a season-high 27 points from Jannero Pargo and a career-high 22 from Taj Gibson.
