Upside: Deng scores the Bulls' first 12 points of the second half, mostly by working over Gerald Wallace.

Downside: Um, maybe Deng's arm gets tired?

Upside: With the Bulls comfortably ahead, there's time to switch over to watch the Bears make their first-round draft pick.

Downside: It's a Bears first-round pick, so naturally you're holding your breath, hoping he's not a bust.

Score: Bulls 65, Nets 52

FOURTH QUARTER

Upside: Nate Robinson continues to make off-balance 3-pointers look easy. How encouraging!

Downside: Nate Robinson continues to make off-balance 3-pointers look easy. Might not want to encourage him.

Downside: Boozer tries to take it strong to the hoop and gets stuffed by Brook Lopez.

Upside: Maybe all Boozer's yelling will damage Lopez's eardrums over time. Or not.

Downside: Joakim Noah scored all of one point. He missed all seven of his field goal attempts.

Upside: Didn't need him to score. Not one bit. Bulls win anyway and take control of the series.

Final score: Bulls 79, Nets 76
