  3. Bulls energy, defense too much for Nets in easy Chicago win

    Feb 13, 2014, 11:30 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls

    Last year in the first round of the playoffs the Bulls defeated the Nets because they were tougher — their energy, their execution, their aggressive, physical style of play knocked the Nets off their game.

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference.
