Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets Game 1: Video Highlights and Recap

Dan Talintyre@@dantalintyreSenior Analyst IIApril 21, 2013

The Brooklyn Nets welcomed the Chicago Bulls to town on Saturday night for Game 1 of their first-round playoff series, desperate to get off on a strong note.

The Bulls would be without star Derrick Rose once more (per Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com) and carrying big question marks around the health of Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson (per Friedell). The Nets would simply be looking to carry on their impressive form that had seen them win seven of their last 10 games.

Chicago won three of the four contests against Brooklyn during the year—could they earn themselves another victory with a strong performance in this one?

Let's take a look at how Game 1 of this thrilling series unfolded.
