Brook Lopez led the Brooklyn Nets with 28 points, ten rebounds and two assists. Deron Williams also had a great game with 23 points and ten assists for the Nets. Joe Johnson had 11 points, Gerald Wallace had 12 points and Andray Blatche came off the bench and scored 13 points. Both of the teams shot 50 percent from the field for the game. The Nets won the rebound game 44-33 against the Bulls, which was the big difference.

 

Nate Robinson led the Bulls with 20 points. Jimmy Butler had 18 points; Carlos Boozer had ten points and Luol Deng 12 points. The big reason the Bulls lost the game was due to the less than stellar play of the bench that only scored 20 points compared to the Nets 32 bench points.

 

The Brooklyn Nets next play on the road in Chicago in the sixth game of the series. The Bulls currently hold a 3-2 lead over the Nets. The winner of this series goes up against the Miami Heat in the conference semi-finals.
