Brooklyn Nets to rest players vs. Bulls Wednesday night

So it should come as no surprise that the Nets are doing that the final game of the season. Teague went directly to the locker room after being injured with 2:06 to play. "That being said, I do understand it". The Pacers and Bulls won their season finales against VERY TIRED and thus RESTING teams, negating Miami's win against an also tired and resting team to clinch the final two Eastern Conference playoff spots.

Count ESPN's Rachel Nichols among those who are not happy with how this is playing out, with teams essentially tanking their final game of the season. "But again, we have to look at it from the Brooklyn Nets franchise and what is best for us and that's how we're looking into it in a vacuum".

It was a bitter ending to one of the most impressive Cinderella sports stories in recent memory - the season of the Miami Heat, a ragtag group that at one point this season had been given up for dead, is over.

In the final game of the season, the Nets chose to rest Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Trevor Booker, while Quincy Acy, Sean Kilpatrick and Joe Harris sat out due to injury.

"It's frustrating for me". Not only will the Bulls have a chance to avenge their loss from over the weekend, but they'll also be able to clinch a playoff spot at the same time.

"There's a lot of different reasons". Carmelo Anthony, who may have played his final game with NY, scored 17 points. Unfortunately, the Hawks are sitting at least four starters, center Dwight Howard, point guard Dennis Schroder, guard Tim Hardaway Jr, forward Kent Bazemore, and forward Paul Millsap. "It's interesting. I think everybody plays 82 games". Not to say they don't have a right to be upset, but I can definitely understand that. They have an National Basketball Association jersey on and they're National Basketball Association players.

Boston wrapped up the No. 1 seed with a win over Milwaukee. The result was a big loss for the Nets as the Bulls got the 39-point win and the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. We have to improve as it was clear tonight.

The youth movement had its hands full against a playoff-hungry team that ran out to a 27-13 first-quarter lead and never looked back.

And Wade, in his first season with the Bulls, is going to the playoffs for the 12th time.

"We were proud of each other in that locker room", Reed said. "It was an opportunity for these guys, and they took advantage of it".

"We'd love to get to 50 wins", coach Scott Brooks said. "If something is going to stop me from where I need to be running-wise, then I won't play". "We're going to work really hard and get better", Goodwin said.

Westbrook was on pace for another triple-double at halftime with eight assists, five points and five rebounds in 18 minutes before Coach Billy Donovan chose to rest him for the second half.

Dragic said it was the worst feeling he had after a game since his homeland of Slovenia lost while hosting the European championship quarterfinals in 2013.

Regardless, one of my favorite Heat teams.
