Bulls Try to Slow Down Nets in Game 2 Monday
NEW YORK (AP) -- Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau knows the Nets are a confident team with an offense in rhythm.

The Nets picked apart Thibodeau's defense in Game 1, rolling to a 106-89 victory. When the teams return to Barclays Center on Monday night for Game 2, the Bulls will have to slow down a team that finished the regular season well and opened the playoffs even better.

Thibodeau says Sunday the Bulls are "going to have to re-establish ourselves."

The Nets began pulling away late in the first quarter, then made 16 of 20 shots in the second, shooting 60 percent in the first half and opening a 60-35 lead.

Thibodeau says center Joakim Noah's foot feels better. The Bulls will need him against a team that shot nearly 56 percent Saturday.
