The Brooklyn Nets are able to reach the Eastern Conference playoffs for the second consecutive season despite missing superstar Kevin Durant throughout the season and have won 20 games from owner Kyrie Irving, but some something was wrong with the team. The Nets will play under coach Jacque Vaughn when they host the Chicago Bulls on Sunday after agreeing to separate from coach Kenny Atkinson on Saturday.
- Bulls PF Lauri Markkanen was held to three points on 1-of-10 shooting Friday.

On Sunday afternoon, it will be Jacque Vaughn who will postpone the initial alignment with the name of LeVert while the Brooklyn Nets host the Chicago Bulls in New York.
Less than 24 hours after LeVert published his first triple double of the race with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the 139-120 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, the Nets decided to change Coach Atkinson was 118-190 years from that general manager Sean Marks hired him in May 2016.
It is believed that the players had an impact on the Nets' decision to replace Atkinson, including stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, who have not yet appeared together on the field since they signed in Brooklyn. On Saturday, Marks denied Irving and Durant or any other player that influenced the movement.
What Marks said was that the new owner Joe Tsai and the reception office agreed that a change was necessary and Atkinson admitted that his voice "was not what it was before."
The Nets have made their third coach change in the season since they moved to Brooklyn after the 2011-12 season. P.J. Carlesimo had a 35-19 record after replacing Avery Johnson in December 2012, while Tony Brown replaced Lionel Hollins in January 2016, a month before hiring Marks, and had a record of 11-34.
LeVert joined the Nets in a night exchange with the Indiana Pacers and developed a relationship with Durant at the beginning of his career. He will play for Vaughn, who previously trained at Orlando Magic, after the best week of his career and the best career of his career.
The triple double continued LeVert's rise to an elite scorer in the last month and occurred three days after scoring 51 points in Boston.
LeVert has been in the initial lineup for each game since February 3 against Phoenix when he replaced Irving. LeVert has averaged 24.3 points in his last 14 games.
Chicago has lost 12 of its last 14 games and has played its last three games without top scorer Zach LaVine. LaVine, who averaged 25.5 points this season and 27.9 in his last nine games, faces a tight left quadricep that could keep him away on Sunday.
The Bulls had their third consecutive losing streak on Friday when they lost 108-102 at home to the Indiana Pacers. Chicago has dragged up to 23 points and allowed an opponent to shoot at least 50% for the tenth time in the last 14 games.
Coby White scored 26 points in this competition. The rookie has averaged 27.7 points in 50.4 percent of shots in his last seven games.
While White is on a recent streak, the Bulls include Wendell Carter Jr, Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter Jr. in their rotation. On Friday, Markkanen scored three points on a 1-in-10 shot in his second game after being absent for a month due to a hip injury.
Carter scored eight points in his fourth game, losing almost two months with an ankle injury. Porter also finished with eight in his third return game after losing almost four months to a sprained left ankle.
The Nets are 9-1 in their last 10 games with Chicago and have scored 62.5% in their home victory 133-118 on January 31.
