Without Noah, Brook Lopez could be in for a big night.
The Bulls visit the Brooklyn Nets for their fourth and final meeting. Chicago currently leads the season series 2-1.
The Bulls found a lot of success inside last game; both Noah and Boozer scored at least 20 points, with Noah posting a double-double. For them to win this game, they'll have to use a similar strategy.
The Nets don't have anyone to guard Boozer, so this is another game where the Bulls have to utilize him early and often. Noah may not be back from his plantar fasciitis, however, so Boozer could see a lot of double teams inside.
Brook Lopez scored 22 points on 9-for-16 shooting last game, and he could be in for an even bigger night with Noah sidelined.
The pick-and-roll between Deron Williams and Lopez will be big. Williams is a threat both as a passer and a scorer, while Lopez can either spot up or roll to the basket.
The Bulls will have their hands full this game. The result could be different depending on whether Noah suits up, but you can never tell with plantar fasciitis.
Nets edge the Bulls out.
Bulls lose 92-90 (1-1 April record)
