Research Notes

  • Kirk Hinrich had 2 points and 2 assists in 28 minutes. His 4 combined points and assists are the fewest by any Bulls starting point guard that played at least 25 minutes in an NBA playoff game in the last 15 seasons. Coincidentally, the next 2 players on this list are Kirk Hinrich as well. It's safe to say the Bulls need Derrick Rose back.

  • The Nets scored 56 points in the paint in Game 1 Saturday, tying their most paint points in a playoff game since the 1996-97 season. Brooklyn scored 40 of its 56 paint points in the first half. The Bulls were outscored 56 to 36 in the paint, the fifth time in the last five postseasons that Chicago was outscored by at least 20 points in the paint in a game.
