Brooklyn enter this final game of the first half of the season in a playoff spot in seventh place. The race is tight in the Eastern Conference from third to eighth place, and the Nets are just 1.5 games behind the Bulls who sit in fourth place.
The game before the All-Star break is a great opportunity to get a win and some momentum while other teams might be distracted.
“A veteran ballclub understands that the games right before the break are important because you’re planning vacations, or planning to go to All-Star weekend, and sometimes the game becomes secondary,” coach Jason Kidd said. “A lot of the guys, for the most part, didn’t play a lot of minutes, so we’ll see what happens (in Chicago).”
