As the series has progressed, several key storylines have emerged that will come to a climax in the final showdown on Saturday night.
What at first looked like a first-round cakewalk for the Bulls, has transformed into a brutal war of attrition.
Only eight teams in NBA history have come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a best-of-seven series. Brooklyn will look to add to that short list when it hosts Chicago at the Barclays Center.
The Nets were able to force a Game 7 by narrowly defeating a depleted Bulls squad 95-92 at the United Center in Chicago on Thursday night.
The Nets have played just one Game 7 in franchise history, a loss to the Detroit Pistons in the 2004 Eastern Conference semifinals and that was when they were residents of New Jersey.
After falling behind 3-1 in the series, Brooklyn has been playing with its back against the wall.
Now, the series shifts back to Brooklyn, where the Nets will hope to write a new narrative.
