G31 Brooklyn Nets (8-22) Has to Face Chicago Bulls (15-16) Without Lin
It was so unfortunate that Jeremy Lin reinjured his left hamstring after playing so well against the Hornets but his teammates played inspired to win the game 120-118 on Foye’s thrilling buzzer-better with 0.9 seconds left on the clock. Lin’s injury status is unknown since the team reportedly is waiting on MRI results to confirm the severity of the injury,
In the meantime, the Nets will try to fight another game without Lin on the road vs the Bulls who had suffered 6 losses in the past 8 games. It did not mean things will get easier as the Bulls beat the Nets badly 118-88 at their home-court. And the Nets road record is a woeful 1-14.

The Bulls (15-16) have an opportunity to climb back to .500 when they host the Brooklyn Nets (8-22) on Wednesday night at the United Center.
“I don’t care who we’re playing, where we’re playing, none of that matters to us,” Wade said. “It’s just about getting better from one game to the next.
Brooklyn has endured a miserable season but is coming off a thrilling victory. Guard Randy Foye hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.9 seconds remaining Monday night to seal a 120-118 win over the Charlotte Hornets.
The shot marked the second career buzzer-beater for Foye. He could receive additional playing time against the Bulls in place of Jeremy Lin, who left Monday’s game in the third quarter because of a strained left hamstring. The same injury caused Lin to miss 17 games earlier this season.
KEY OF THE GAME: As long as the Nets has not fixed their defense not to allow wide-open shots, win will be hard to come by. But the most important news is to hope for good news from JLin’s MRI results
Let’s hope and pray JLin will recover soon and help the Nets get back on the winning track!
Let’s go, JLin and the Nets!
