NBA Playoffs 2013: Bulls vs. Nets TV Schedule, Times, Network

(Anthony Gruppuso/USA Today Sports)

There’s plenty of great matchups set to get under way this weekend in the 2013 NBA playoff series–especially when it comes to the Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls.

At the beginning of the season, the Nets looked like they were going to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference and while they showed signs of struggle at times during the regular season–they could be one of the last teams anyone wants to play in the playoffs as they ended the year winning seven of their last 10 games.

As for the Bulls, everybody knows the story by now about Derrick Rose and how he failed to suit up during the regular season, but Chicago played the smart card here by resting their star guard. Even if they did want him to play at the end of the regular season, the last thing the Bulls needed to see happen if have Rose re-injure his knee if he returned to the court too soon.

Even without Rose, this matchup between Brooklyn and Chicago could go either way considering how well both teams looked during the regular season. Below is the schedule for this first-round matchup between the Nets and Bulls–including dates, times and television networks.

Game 1: Saturday, April 20, at Brooklyn, 8:00 p.m. on ESPN

Game 2: Monday, April 22, at Brooklyn, 8:00 p.m. on TNT

Game 3: Thursday, April 25, at Chicago, 8:30 p.m. on NBATV

Game 4: Saturday, April 27, at Chicago, 2:00 p.m. on TNT

Game 5:  Monday, April 29, at Brooklyn, TBD (if necessary)

Game 6:  Thursday, May 2, at Chicago, TBD (if necessary)

Game 7:  Saturday, May 4, at Brooklyn, TBD (if necessary) on TNT

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
