Brooklyn Nets Benching Six Players vs Chicago Bulls
Jeremy Lin, Brook Lopez and four other Brooklyn Nets players are ruled out for their final game of the season on Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls. Washington is locked into the fourth seed in the playoffs in the East.
"Not to say they don't have a right to be upset", he said of Heat supporters. No. 1 seed on the road, we'll take it, we're in there.
Dwyane Wade is proud of the Chicago Bulls for qualifying for the postseason after such an up-and-down season. "Everybody had a challenging season". Cleveland took Toronto down in six games in last year's Eastern Conference finals. "At the end of the day, our goal was to get to the playoffs and we were able to accomplish that".
"I had a conversation with him (Tuesday) and we talked about it", Atkinson said.
Lopez leads Brooklyn with 20.5 points per game, but he will sit out and not pose a challenge for twin brother Robin, who starts at center for the Bulls.
The Heat did their part by beating the Washington Wizards 110-102 on Wednesday, but the Bulls got in by virtue of the tiebreaker.
"I don't know if I've ever wanted something more for a team", an emotional Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "But again, we have to look at it from the Brooklyn Nets franchise and what is best for us and that's how we're looking into it in a vacuum". That's my responsibility as a coach to look at it in that vein.
Heat point guard Goran Dragic understood what the Nets were doing.

Forwards Rondae Hollis Jefferson, 22 (8.7 points, 5.8 rebounds), in his second year, and Trevor Booker, 29 (10 points, 8 rebounds), in his sixth year, have also been bright lights for the Nets. They know exactly what I'm thinking, and we're all on board with each other. We definitely need to shoot better. The young guys helped throughout the times we had injuries. Unless a player is resting for the postseason, or legitimately hurt, they should be playing in the season finale. The Bulls led by as many as 39 and never trailed.
In the Western Conference, No. 1 Golden State will open against No. 8 Portland, No. 2 San Antonio faces No. 7 Memphis, No. 3 Houston gets No. 6 Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz will meet in the last quarterfinal. Small forward Otto Porter, who has started 79 games this season, has missed the past two due to back spasms. Paul Zipser had 21 points and six rebounds off the bench, while Bobby Portis added 12 points and ten rebounds off the bench.
Aside from the usual energy in a postgame series, what will be a lot of fun to watch will be how Rondo handles his return to the Boston. "I'm with the Bulls now". TAKING ADVANTAGE OF AN OPPORTUNITY Goodwin didn't waste the extra minutes. The ninth-year coach has now missed the playoffs twice in his career, as well as won two National Basketball Association titles.
"As a player, 14 years, I think I've been in 12 playoffs", Wade said. I know the group we're gonna send out there is gonna compete.
"I'll be interested to see what happens".
The Wizards have won three of their last four games to move to 49-32 on the season. But we had just played Chicago and beat them last week.
"It is what it is", Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said before tipoff. It's all going to depend on how he's feeling out there. "I thought he had some good bursts to the basket".
