Bulls will try again to finish off Nets in first round after stumbling in Game 5

The Chicago Bulls had a chance to put away the Brooklyn Nets. Instead, they'll have to try again.

Their first-round series shifts back to Chicago for Game 6 on Thursday, and the Bulls look like a team that could be in trouble even though they lead 3-2.

Kirk Hinrich was sidelined by a calf injury. Joakim Noah remains hobbled by a foot problem, and instead of putting away the Nets on Monday, the Bulls got tripped up 110-91.

A win on Thursday sends the Bulls to the second round, where LeBron James and the defending champion Miami Heat will be waiting. Otherwise, it's back to Brooklyn for Game 7 on Saturday, a scenario that seemed almost unthinkable just a few days ago.
