The 2017-18 NBA season has been defined by three major races: the race for the No. 1 seeds, the race to obtain a top-eight position and the race to take full advantage of the final time all 14 non-playoff teams are eligible for the No. 1 draft pick, via the lottery.
As far as this game goes, it’s tankfest 2018 that steals the spotlight. Except for one small detail: Only the Chicago Bulls own their own draft pick this summer, whereas the Brooklyn Nets owe theirs to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
What does that mean as far as this contest goes? Chicago has no incentive to win, while the Nets have no incentive to lose.
So far this season, the Bulls are 21st in points per game. They’re scoring 103.5 points per contest.
As far as offensive efficiency goes, Chicago is dropping just 101.8 points per 100 possessions. That number drops them down to 28th in the NBA.
On defense, the Bulls are allowing opponents to score 109.6 points per night. That number is only good enough for 24th in the league.
As far as defensive efficiency goes, Chicago is just 26th. The team gives up 108.4 points per 100 possessions to opponents.
The Nets this season rank 16th in points per game. They’re scoring an average of 105.2 points a night.
In terms of offensive efficiency, Brooklyn is posting 103 points per 100 possessions. That puts them at 26th in the league.
Clearly, their middle-of-the-pack points-per-game average isn’t because of their effectiveness at putting the ball through the hoop; it’s because they create extra possessions with their top-five pace.
On defense, Brooklyn is giving up 109.7 points per contest. That number is only good enough for 26th in the NBA.
As far as defensive efficiency goes, the Nets rank in the bottom 10 of the league. They’re giving up 108 points per 100 possessions, which puts them at 22nd.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
The Nets are struggling immensely right now. They’ve dropped eight straight, including 12 out of their last 13.
But if there’s such thing as a slump-buster in this league, it’s going up against a team that needs losses and ping pong balls more than you do.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn ATS
There’s no reason to believe that the Nets will blow out the Bulls, but a close game with a strong finish should be in order.
We’ve got Brooklyn both straight up and ATS at -2.5.
