SB Nation Network NBA Playoffs Open Thread: Only one game, ughhhhhhhhh

Once again, we play host to SB Nation's NBA network's playoff open thread, so let's be kind hosts to our fine visitors!


After last night's four-game schedule that tugged my mind at opposite ends trying to decide which game to watch, tonight has only one NBA playoff game to focus on.

In our only Game 7 of the first round, we have the Chicago Bulls taking on the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center. Tipoff will be shortly after 8 p.m.

As Blog A Bull's headline states, "Deng still in hospital, Hinrich still can't run," which has to be disheartening for Chicago fans. But Taj Gibson and Nate Robinson are through their flu-like symptoms, so at least the poor little guy doesn't have to be shown puking up his innards to a national audience.

As for Derrick Rose ... well, it might be more likely that Axl Rose starts for the Bulls.

Meanwhile Brooklyn and their second-most expensive roster in the league look to fulfill some of the potential people thought they had in the face of recent questions concerning their internal fortitude.
