Bulls look to stay alive for postseason play vs. Nets

While it is a matter of which top-three seed in the Eastern Conference the Brooklyn Nets will wind up with, it is a matter of survival for the Chicago Bulls.

With four games remaining, the Bulls face a significant obstacle in their quest to reach the final play-in berth and they hope to take the floor with a slightly smaller deficit when they host the Nets, who clinched a playoff spot two weeks ago.

Chicago (29-39) began Monday 2 1/2 games behind the Indiana Pacers for 10th and three games behind the Washington Wizards for ninth place in the East. The Bulls could be even further behind if Indiana defeats the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday and Washington defeats the Atlanta Hawks.
