Happy Easter - if you celebrate. Happy Sunday - if you don’t. The Brooklyn Nets are celebrating being really good at basketball on Sunday by heading to Chicago to take on the Bulls.
The Nets will be without James Harden and Kevin Durant (still), but a possible return (on Monday?) looms for Durant.

WHEN: 2:00 PM EST
WHERE: YES2 (tv), WFAN (radio)
The opponent Sunday afternoon will be the new-look Chicago Bulls. It’s an odd road trip. The game is sandwiched between a four-game trip and a three-game trip. Go figure.
Fighting for a place in the NBA’s play-in tournament, the denizens of the Windy City are now the 10th seed in the East, just barely in post-season with a record of 19-28, four games behind the 8th seed but only five and a half out of fourth. That’s the way of the East. The Nets, 76ers and Bucks dominate while the rest of the conference hope for lightning to strike.
The Bulls remade themselves at the trade deadline, sending Wendell Carter Jr., Otto Porter Jr. and two firsts to Orlando for Nikola Vucevic and Al Farouq Aminu. So far, it hasn’t worked. In the four games, Vucevic has played, the Bulls have racked up four losses while he’s averaged 20.5 points and nine rebounds. Worse yet, the Bulls have lost six straight.
