Game 7 – Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets Free Pick: And it all comes down to this… The Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls have played a heck of a series that has had a little bit of everything in it. These two will meet for the final time in the first Game 7 in the history of the Barclays Center on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. ET in a game that will be shown on TNT. The NBA odds feature Brooklyn laying 6 ½-points in Game 7, while the ‘total’ is set at a relatively high 182.

The reason we say that this ‘total’ is rather high is due to the fact that it is a game that Head Coach Tom Thibodeau almost has to make as ugly as possible. We already know that he is really only going to have perhaps eight or nine players at his disposal, as both G Kirk Hinrich and F Luol Deng are likely both going to sit this one out. Don’t look for the team to do any running whatsoever, and the key is going to be playing in the half court when push comes to shove. The Nets aren’t really set to run up and down the court either. Call it a gut shot, but we really think that this is a Brooklyn team that is going to be feeling a ton of pressure. Sure, this was the team that was down 3-1 in this series, and it is Chicago that really should be feeling the pressure of blowing such a huge series lead. However, the Nets are now in a position where they really should win this series. Head Coach PJ Carlesimo’s coaching career is probably on the line as well, and he might be coaching that way. The end result might be over-coaching and bad shots being taken against a great defense. We really think that these two teams are going to struggle to just get into the 80s. Expect a game that was a lot like Game 4 in this one. Bulls vs. Nets Game 7 Pick: Take the Under 182
