Bulls win but get crushed on the glass

Saturday night saw a 1-point victory for the Chicago Bulls over the Brooklyn Nets.  Marco Belinelli was the Bulls most productive player on offense (19 points on just 9 shots) while as usual Joakim Noah lead their defense (7 D Reb, 3 Stl, 2 Blk).  But the undersized front-court for Chicago was out-rebounded for just the 4th  game in 22 so far this year.  It was the teams worst effort on the glass as the Nets pulled down 8 more boards than Chicago.

The unusually strong effort by Brook Lopez on the offensive glass (5 O Rebs in 25 mins compared to a season average of just 2) caused much of the destruction to the Bulls.  Lopez extends his lead at the quarter pole for NBA comeback player of the year 2013.
