Saturday's NBA slate includes the Chicago Bulls visiting the Brooklyn Nets with the Bulls' playoff hopes still hanging in the balance. As of right now, Chicago sits at 39-40 overall in the Eastern Conference standings. A win today keeps them alive for the postseason as teams including Miami, Indiana, and Milwaukee have all nearly identical records. Here's a look at today's Bulls vs. Nets live stream and TV game preview including game odds and how to watch it.

Chicago vs. Brooklyn

Reports from various sources are indicating that the Bulls may have Dwyane Wade back on the court for Saturday's game in Brooklyn.

The Chicago Bulls star has missed a month due to a fractured right elbow so having him back just in time for the playoffs would be optimal for this Chicago squad.

Coming into today's game, the Bulls have won five of their last six games including their previous outing at Philadelphia 102-90. Jimmy Butler finished with a triple-double in that win with 19 points, ten boards, and ten assists. He'll look to lead the way again as Wade possibly eases back into his role on the court.

The Brooklyn Nets are coming into this game with the league's worst overall record at 19-60. That could probably land them the top pick in June's NBA Draft, although that pick isn't theirs. Instead, it will go to the Boston Celtics due to trade several seasons ago, adding more insult to injury over a dismal season.

For today's game, Chicago is listed as a three-point road favorite at the Vegas Insider. Today's over/under points total is around 215-1/2 to 217 points for the game, depending on the sports book one consults.
