Through 3 Quarters
The Brooklyn Nets are giving their home crowd exactly what it was hoping to see. It’s anybody’s game after three quarters, but Brooklyn is ahead of the Chicago Bulls 84-79.
Power forward Paul Millsap has led the way so far for the Nets, as he has 13 points along with six rebounds. One thing to keep an eye out for is Bruce Brown’s foul situation as he currently sits at four.
Chicago has been led by shooting guard Zach LaVine, who so far has 24 points and six assists in addition to six boards.
The Bulls have been used to carrying a lead into the fourth quarter lately, so we’ll see how they respond to the deficit.

What to Know
The Brooklyn Nets are getting right back to it as they host the Chicago Bulls at 8 p.m. ET Dec. 4 at Barclays Center. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
Brooklyn didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the Minnesota Timberwolves this past Friday, but they still walked away with a 110-105 victory. The Nets’ power forward Kevin Durant did his thing and dropped a double-double on 30 points and ten boards in addition to six dimes.
Meanwhile, Chicago sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 119-115 win over the New York Knicks this past Thursday. Having forecasted a close win for the Bulls, the oddsmakers were right on the money. It was another big night for their small forward DeMar DeRozan, who had 34 points along with six rebounds.
The wins brought Brooklyn up to 16-6 and Chicago to 15-8. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Brooklyn have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.70%, which places them second in the league. But the Bulls rank fourth in the league when it comes to field goal percentage, with 47.10% on the season. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
