The Bulls are already in the playoff mood – and it should really go to hell if we don’t see Chicago again in the postseason. On the other hand, the usual curse weighs on the Nets whenever their three superstars get together.
Because after the Big Three, consisting of Durant, Harden and Irving, stood together against the Pacers for the first time this season, it wasn’t long before one or the other top performer came up with bad news.
The trio hasn’t been complete since defeating the Pacers – the consequence? Brooklyn lost the games against the Bucks and Trailblazers and only scored a wafer-thin 121: 119 victory against the heavily covid-weakened Spurs.
Brooklyn would have to do everything to hold its own against the Bulls, but that cannot be guaranteed at this point in time. Then James Harden and Kyrie Irving are officially listed as day-to-day.
Nevertheless, it can be assumed that at least those who refused to vaccinate Kyrie Irving come into play will. But the question rightly arises whether the New Yorkers could win at all, even if the entire arsenal were used.
Because James Harden always looks particularly bad against the Bulls Defense. While The Beard impressed us with breathtaking performances in December, there was usually no getting around the Duo LaVine / Ball.
