This was the kind of game in Brooklyn Monday for the Bulls you almost wanted to skip, let the other guys take the win and go back home after the stunning Saturday victory and perhaps a bit healthier and more rested and end it in Game 6 Thursday.

After all, it’s about winning the series. But it’s also about playing …

That’s why you keep coming back to the NBA.

For days like Saturday when the Bulls and Brooklyn Nets gave basketball a gift, a fabulous, breathtaking, wondrous and thrilling 142-134 Bulls triple overtime victory.

Perhaps not so wonderful for the shocked Nets, who gave up a 14-point lead with less than three minutes left in regulation and head home for …

Is Charles C.J. Watson the fulcrum in this Bulls/Nets series?

No, not because Joe Johnson also has plantar fasciitis and is a game-time decision for Thursday’s pivotal (they all are, but we like to say it, anyway) Game 3 of this first round series now tied 1-1. Though if Johnson can’t play, Watson likely would move into the starting lineup.…

Joakim Noah didn’t have the most points in the Bulls 90-82 win over the Brooklyn Nets Monday to even their playoff series at 1-1. The Nets’ Brook Lopez had 21.

Noah didn’t have the most rebounds. That was teammate Carlos Boozer with 12 along with 13 points while Luol Deng had his own double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. …

A playoff series isn’t over when you are embarrassed in Game 1 on the road, as the Bulls were Saturday in Brooklyn in a 106-89 beating in which the Nets led by 25 points at halftime with already an astounding 40 inside points to eight for the Bulls.

“The game was over in the first half,” acknowledged Carlos Boozer, who …

Really, what is more appropriate for this Bulls 2012-13 season than to open the playoffs with Chicago defending the Brooklyn Nets’ only All-Star with one of the league’s oldest players, Nazr Mohammed, who barely played the first half of the season when he averaged less than a point and shot 19 percent before the All-Star break.

“It was the master …

When LeBron James made a game winning driving basket against the Orlando Magic Wednesday, his first game winning shot in two and a half years with the Miami Heat, ESPN devoted much of its SportsCenter highlight show to the milestone. There’s also believed to be a 30 for 30 documentary about the shot coming and reaction being sought from Bill …

It’s the Bulls playing the Miami Heat Thursday at the United Center on national TNT, and the Bulls know what’s coming.

Heck, they knew it a few minutes after beating the Heat last month in Miami.

“I know (coach Erik) Spoelstra is going to come in and I know what’s going to happen,” Joakim Noah said after famously suggesting that …

It would have been a heck of a victory.

It’s one thing to have a strong bench as the Bulls have had the past few years. It’s another to make them your starters and go to guys in order to carry you against one of the top teams in the conference, which the Bulls tried to do Friday in Brooklyn …

Derrick Rose will be there in Miami Friday when the Bulls get their first crack this season at the defending champion Miami Heat. But it’s not quite the same, obviously, with Rose sidelined likely another few months recovering from his knee injury and surgery.

These were the kind of games you circled the calendar for the last few years, the …
