Game 2 was nothing like Game 1, back when the shots were falling for Brooklyn and the Bulls were half asleep. This time, the Nets were pushed around, playing from behind, and the whole night became a struggle. Tom Thibodeau, a terrific tinkerer, had enacted his adjustments and the Bulls clung to each ball-handler like a second skin. “They contested every shot, step and cut,” said Keith Bogans, who recognized the effort from his time with the Bulls. “They played Chicago defense.” New York Daily News

For a brief moment last offseason, coming back to the Chicago Bulls looked like a realistic possibility for Keith Bogans. Behind his relationship with Tom Thibodeau, Bogans had a strong advocate within the Bulls, and privately the coach pushed management over the summer to bring back Bogans. RealGM

Bogans never communicated with Thibodeau about a potential return, but he told RealGM that his agent, Dan Fegan, talked to the Bulls’ front office during the offseason. Ultimately, Bogans believed re-signing with the Brooklyn Nets fit him best and the Bulls acquired Marco Belinelli. Bogans admits the respect between he and Thibodeau remains strong, but as he said after the Nets’ loss to the Bucks on Wednesday night: “That was about it, though.” RealGM

It was a monumental night for the Nets franchise, but the same could be said for Keith Bogans. Bogans was active for the first time since fracturing his left ankle, as well as completely tearing his deltoid ligament, after an awkward landing in a game against the Detroit Pistons on Feb. 5. “This is one of the best feelings I’ve had in a long time,” he said before the game. “After all I went through, getting back out on the court I’m just excited. I feel like a kid again. ... I’m almost overexcited.” New York Post

Keith Bogans played only five games before he broke his ankle and completely tore his deltoid ligament last February. The Nets released him and it looked like his career with the team was over. Not so. Even after he was cut, Bogans was helped by the Nets training staff. "From the time my ankle broke through the rehab and all the way back, I haven’t been treated the way I’ve been treated here in my whole career," said Bogans, who's played for seven NBA teams in his nine-year career. So Bogans wanted back and considering his calling card is defense, Avery Johnson wanted him. NetsDaily

A league source confirmed a report that the Nets are expected to re-sign veteran guard Keith Bogans. The 32-year-old signed with the Nets on Feb. 1, but played in only five games before suffering a torn deltoid ligament in his left ankle and breaking a bone in a gruesome fall against the Pistons a week later. Bogans later had surgery, and has been working out at the Nets facility periodically ever since. The source said that the Nets that Bogans would likely return assuming he’s fully recovered. Assuming Bogans does sign, he will help give the Nets more veteran depth on the wings, backing up Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace at shooting guard and small forward, respectively, along with MarShon Brooks. Bogans also is a fit because of his defensive ability, as well as being a quality 3-point shooter. The Nets could use floor spacing to allow Deron Williams, Johnson and Brook Lopez more room to operate. New York Post
