They have won 3 of the last 4 meetings with Brooklyn. Carlos Boozer was the star for Chicago going for 12-22 shooting with 29 points, 3 assists and 18 rebounds. Nazr Mohammed got the start again tonight logging almost 37 minutes for 4 points, 1 assist and 9 rebounds. Marquis Teague logged 11 seconds for no stats.
Keith Bogans didn’t have a very good game for Brooklyn as he logged a little over 21 minutes with 2 rebounds and no points.
