Chicago Bulls stay unbeaten with 30-point rout of Brooklyn Nets

Chicago Bulls stay unbeaten with 30-point rout of Brooklyn Nets

Here are the top 4 takeaways from tonight's game.

Lin played 24 minutes and scored 14 points (team high was Bojan Bogdanovic with 15), all of them in the first half. He only made three of the 13 attempts that he took. Though he's only played in the National Basketball Association for 2 seasons, he's already 27.

Lionel Hollins developed a reputation as an old-school coach with a disdain for analytics; his aversion to stats and analysis was an overstatement, but his offensive sets were not among the most modern in the league.

In the halfcourt, the ball still isn't sticking as it's moving well from one side to the other.

The Hornets may have all five defenders in the paint, but the Nets' positioning at the end of the play does not leave much room to punish Charlotte for doing so. They lost to Boston in their season opener before rebounding with a nine-point victory over Indiana.

Kenny Atkinson's previous team in Atlanta was nearly the opposite of last year's isolation-heavy offense in Brooklyn. He's never posted a season where he shot above 33% from three-point range in his career. Four other Atlanta players scored in double figures for the win in a bruising contest in which the teams combined for 54 fouls. Jimmy Butler has started the season on a tear and has been ultra-efficient shooting 50% from the field while having a spectacular 1.725 PPS (points per shot).

"I've been waiting on that moment for a long time", Wade said.The Bulls, who missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2008, are likely feeding off the emotions of a city celebrating its first World Series appearance since 1945.

Cristiano Felicio is making an argument for more playing time. Despite the stars showing up for the Bulls this season, one of the main reasons for this blistering start has clearly been the domination by the team's role players.

Justin Hamilton has a decently open look from the corner but swings the ball to a more open Joe Harris as Monta Ellis closes out on Hamilton.

Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo would not play in the fourth quarter and they were not needed in the slightest.

Scola is the only player who is not in motion during this sequence, but even he remains behind the arc. "We just weren't aggressive enough and didn't affect the ball". Gibson also 11 rebounds, a steal and a block.

The way the Bulls played Monday night was a continuation from the first two, and again, something that was not expected, at least from myself. I wish we would have shot a little bit better. They are averaging more points per possession on two-pointers than on threes (shooting 49.8 percent on two-pointers).

While the season is still young, it's been an unexpected result for the new-look Bulls. He also hit three of his four outside shots as well. The extra pass is being made from a good look to a great look, and they're cutting away from the ball finding open lanes. Lin has only been league average from three in his career, but he is a speed merchant who drives to the rim with reckless abandon.

"I give our veteran leaders a lot of credit for the way we continue to put our foot on the gas and continue to extend leads as opposed to letting up and allowing our opponents to get back in the game", Hoiberg said.

Instead, the Bulls are playing exactly how many didn't think was possible for them.

"Isaiah, it's a great opportunity for him and we're excited for him", Atkinson said before the game about the Seton Hall product. Those three players might have more points and assists, but during Saturday's 118-101 win over IN, they saw some rest as Doug McDermott scored 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting while the Bulls collected 34 assists and shot 52 percent. Atkinson said Vasquez was day to day.
