Bulls Taj Gibson Calls Out The Nets – "Not a lot of heart"

Updated: April 29, 2013

The Nets have an uphill battle in front of them after they collapsed in Game 4 losing a 14 point lead with under four minutes to play and eventually lost in triple overtime 142-134.

With that being said, the Nets are still alive and can bring the series back to Chicago with a win tonight in Brooklyn.

The Bulls seem to be having their way with the Nets late in games and the Bulls players are not afraid to admit it publicly now as well.  The Nets are 2-6 against the Bulls this season and five of those games were decided by four points or less and all but one were won by Chicago.

The Bulls do have some merit to their statements but if nothing else this should rile up the Brooklyn players knowing that this Chicago team does not respect them and they are so outspoken about it.

Bulls players privately were hoping to land the Nets in the first round leading into the final week of the regular season, with one player saying off the record, “Not a lot of heart. Watch what happens to them late in close games.’’

Considering what the Bulls did to the Nets in their Game 4 come-from-behind victory in triple-overtime Saturday, there’s no need for such comments to be off the record. The players know that when it comes down to heart, toughness, will and playing team basketball when it matters most, the Nets just aren’t in the same class.

“From my perspective, I think so,’’ Bulls power forward Taj Gibson said, when asked if the Bulls are just a tougher team than the Nets. “I mean, we had a lot of injuries this year. For the last three years we’ve had a lot of injuries, and we’ve always been able to overcome the injuries. We have guys that can step up on any given night and play 48 [minutes], play whatever is needed.[/quote_simple]
