Bulls vs. Nets final score: Chicago looks flat, gets blown out in Brooklyn

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The streaking Bulls got stumped.

I have to be real with you: I got too busy at work and wasn't able to pay attention to this one. Lucky me. The Bulls were down by the nine by the end of the first quarter and were never able to get close enough to make a run in the second half, falling to the Nets 96-80 at the Barclays Center. It's only the second loss for the Bulls in their last 11 games.

The problem was the Bulls couldn't hold onto the ball. Chicago turned the ball over 25 times while Brooklyn only had 11 turnovers. The Bulls and Nets each shot 46 percent from the field and the Bulls finished with a 43-28 edge in rebounding, but clearly it wasn't enough. Five Nets scorers reached double-figures, led by 20 points from Deron Williams.

You know it's a bad game when @JeffGurt is only tweeting about turnovers:

Bad game, Bulls. I have nothing else to add so I'll just link the box score. We'll get 'em next time, I suppose.
