Nets snare Chicago to snap eight-game losing streak in NBA

Chicago Bulls forward Pau Gasol called out his teammates for a lack of urgency Monday after a 105-102 loss to the Brooklyn Nets in which Joakim Noah was injured.

The Nets, a woeful 8-20 on the season, snapped an eight-game road losing streak while the Bulls lost their third in a row and fell to 15-11.

Spanish star Gasol said the Bulls struggled at times to match Brooklyn’s intensity.

“We were missing a lot of parts of the game,” Gasol said.

“A sense of urgency. We cruise for most of the game. Then when we have our back against the wall, we turn it up and try to give ourselves a chance.

“But sometimes it’s just too late. It’s something we need to address and need to correct and improve upon. We just need change,” he added.

But be careful what you wish for as the change could be a replacement for star center Noah.

At Washington, Wizards guard John Wall passed out a career-high 19 assists and Marcin Gortat scored a season-best 27 points in a 113-99 victory over Sacramento.

At New York, Orlando center Nikola Vucevic matched his season high with 26 points and the Magic beat the Knicks 107-99, snapping New York’s four-game win streak. Boston snapped a three-game losing streak, beating visiting Minnesota 113-99.
