Many people feel the Brooklyn Nets should be heavily fined for holding half their team out against the Bulls, turning the contest into a sham.Jimmy Butler scored 25 points, and the Bulls beat those depleted Nets 112-73 in the regular-season finale to clinch an Eastern Conference playoff spot on Wednesday.Paul Zipser added a career-high 21 points off the bench as the Bulls took advantage of a short-handed Brooklyn lineup to secure its first playoff appearance under coach Fred Hoiberg.On Tuesday, the Nets, owners of the worst record in the league, announced Trevor Booker, Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez would be out due to rest, while Quincy Acy (ankle), Joe Harris (shoulder) and Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) because of injuries.This game was just as boring as you might think.
