Brooklyn Nets to rest players vs. Bulls Wednesday night

Lose to the Nets and risk missing the playoffs. Sitting their starters for the final game of the season is just another example. "That's what happens when you play in a talented league", said Dwyane Wade, who had seven points and four assists for the Bulls.

With baseball, golf and the New York Rangers' playoff run about to consume this city's sports pages and sports programs, the Nets and Knicks inability to get into the postseason makes them as topical, as trending as the final bit of snow that fell last month. "We're not counting on anybody else".

IN controls its destiny for No. 7.

The Miami Heat completed a stirring second half to the National Basketball Association regular season by setting a new milestone on Wednesday but their brilliance was not rewarded with a playoff berth as the growing trend of resting players took on extra significance. "But it depends on which team you ask (the Heat, Bulls or Pacers)".

The Heat did their part by beating the Washington Wizards 110-102 on Wednesday, but the Bulls got in by virtue of the tiebreaker.

The company has since apologized for the ad and has announced that they are removing it from the airwaves. She has not commented since and has deleted her tweet initially pointing people towards the ad.

Hoiberg said he expected his team to embrace the pressure. The Pacers now sit in 7th place, one game ahead of the Bull and Heat.

"Through the good times and the bad times, this group never forgot to have fun", Heat captain Udonis Haslem said. We're not the team to overlook anybody. We've won six of eight. We definitely need to shoot better. Rondo's absence has created additional playing time for Jerian Grant, who posted a double-double (17 points and 11 assists) on Monday night against the Orlando Magic.

The Chicago, Indiana and Miami games were deciding the final two spots in the 16-team field for this year's playoffs. On Tuesday, the Nets, who have the worst record in the league, said Trevor Booker, Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez would be out due to rest, while Quincy Acy (ankle), Joe Harris (shoulder) and Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) because of injuries.

In Chicago, Jimmy Butler scored 25 points, and the Bulls beat the depleted Brooklyn Nets 112-73 to lock up the No. 8 seed in the East and a matchup with Boston in the first round.

Guard Archie Goodwin provided a rare bright spot with a team-high 20 points for the Nets. Millsap in that game was held to just four points on 1-of-7 shooting.

The arrests are part of an ongoing joint four-month investigation by Canada and U.S. authorities into organised human smuggling. The CBSA says nine foreign nationals were in her vehicle, who had failed to report to the CBSA upon entering Canada.

"We knew that we didn't have the initial respect of everybody coming in", Lin told Newsday. The young guys helped throughout the times we had injuries. But that's all right. "But I started to see improvements". "We have a game plan that we had in place for whoever takes the floor for Brooklyn". The Bulls turned an 11-10 deficit into a 27-13 lead entering the second quarter. "I don't know if I've ever wanted something more for a team".

"I'm going to be honest as a competitor, I understand it", Atkinson ceded before the opening tip as he was bombarded with queries regarding his decision to sit three of his top players in the finale. I love being on the court with my teammates, playing against Robin and then just the situation of the game is super-exciting.

"I think next year we're going to make a lot of strides, especially going into the summer".

"You have to go out and worry about your team". Still, George vs. LeBron James should be great, and maybe we'll get more Lance Stephenson silliness.
