* Brooklyn took a 1-0 lead versus Chicago with a 106-89 victory on Saturday. It was the Nets’ second-largest margin of victory ever in a series-opening game (107-83 over the Knicks on 4/17/2004).

* The Bulls are 6-15 in best-of-seven series after they’ve lost Game 1. However, they are 5-5 in such series since the 1991 postseason. Only San Antonio (6) has come back to win more such series over that span.

* The Nets have gone 7-2 in best-of-seven series in which they won Game 1. None of those nine series, including the two they lost, lasted longer than six games.

* Carlos Boozer led the Bulls in scoring (25), rebounds (8) and assists (4) on Saturday, becoming only the third Bull to pace the team in all three categories in a postseason game since Michael Jordan in 1997.

* Deron Williams led the Nets in scoring (22), assists (7) and steals (3) on Saturday. He hit 60.0 percent (9-for-15) of his field goals, the third-highest rate of his postseason career. The Nets were +24 when he was on the court, his highest mark ever in a playoff game.

* Brook Lopez contributed 21 points on Saturday, the highest total for a Net making his postseason debut since Derrick Coleman scored 21 on April 23, 1992.
