Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets: Game 5 Postgame Grades and Analysis
Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

The Brooklyn Nets will play on.

Facing elimination after dropping three straight to the Chicago Bulls, the Nets took Game 5, 110-91, at the Barclays Center.

Brooklyn took an eight-point lead into halftime, but had trouble containing Chicago on the offensive end in the third quarter. The Bulls cut the lead to four leading into fourth, but the Nets responded by outscoring them by 15 (33-18).

Led by Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and a number of their reserves, the Nets have now forced a Game 6 to played in Chicago. After an offensive outburst like this Brooklyn has to like its chances of forcing a decisive Game 7.

And if Joakim Noah, Kirk Hinrich and the Bulls remain as banged up as they are, the Nets have to like those chances even more.
