CHICAGO From a standings perspective Jarvis Landry Jersey Youth , the Brooklyn Nets dont have much left to play for this season.

But dont tell that to Nets coach Kenny Atkinson, who, heading into Saturdays road game against the Chicago Bulls, isnt finished finding positives from an otherwise disappointing season. The glimmers of hope come after the Nets (26-53) connected on 19 3-point field goals and shot 48.7 percent from beyond the arc on Thursday in a 119-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Nets finished with at least 10 long-distance connections for the 14th consecutive game, which tied a franchise record. Brooklyn snapped a two-game losing streak despite playing without injured forward DeMarre Carroll (left hip) and center Jahlil Okafor (right ankle).

Now, the Nets will look to keep building momentum for the future when they play the Bulls, who, like Brooklyn, remain focused on the bigger picture.

I keep saying, Were playing for a lot, Atkinson told reporters after Thursdays victory in Milwaukee. Were playing for our future, were playing for our culturewere playing for our fans.

How close to full strength the Nets will be Saturday in Chicago remains uncertain. Carroll is listed as day-to-day for the remainder of the season while its possible Okafor could play against the Bulls.

While Allen Crabbe paced Brooklyns offense against the Bucks with 25 points, Nets center Jarrett Allen blocked a career-high five shots on a night when the Nets blocked 12 shots despite being without Carroll and Okafor.

(Allen) has to be our paint-patroller and rim protector, Atkinson told reporters after Thursdays victory.

The Bulls (27-52) saw their three-game winning streak snapped on Friday with a 111-104 loss to the Boston Celtics. Chicago wraps up its home slate on Saturday against the Nets, and the Bulls will face the Nets again on Monday in Brooklyn before wrapping up the regular season on the road against the Detroit Pistons.

For everything this season has produced Leighton Vander Cowboys Esch Jersey , between the fight between then-teammates Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic to start the season, injuries and a focus on the future, coach Fred Hoiberg has appreciated the way his team handled what proved to be a season-long roller-coaster ride.

While the Bulls have spent the season in the first year of what is expected to be a multi-year rebuilding process, Hoiberg has been forced to remain patient with a young group of players.

I give our guys a lot of credit, Hoiberg said this week, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Ive said it all along: Our guys have played the right way. Theyve found a way to fight through adversity.

That has been our message to our team were not looking at the end of the game when we come in here, win-loss. The wins are obviously nice, but youre looking at, did you play harder than the other team? And, for the most part, our guys have competed at a very high level every time they stepped on the floor.

Like Atkinson, Hoiberg sees value in how the Bulls finish the final three games of the year as he and the Bulls front office begin to plan ahead to next year. Chicago is building around is young core of talent that includes rookie Lauri Markkanen and Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine, both of whom have been shut down for the season due to injuries.

You look at the standings, where we are and what were still trying to accomplish, Hoiberg said. And there are still some important minutes this season.

The fieriness of undrafted rookie running back Phillip Lindsay will be put on the backburner.

Not for long Cheap Sam Darnold Jersey , just for now.

The former Colorado standout known as the Tasmanian Devil for his relentless motor is all ears these days in the Denver Broncos meeting room.

I have to get in where I fit in. Right now, thats learning and listening and being quiet, Lindsay said on the first day of rookie orientation Friday. My place is to listen to the veterans and coaches and take what they want and establish it on the football field.

That also means lining up wherever the Broncos want him to line up. Hes willing to return kickoffs and punts, play special teams, become a situational running back, even line up as a slot receiver.

Anything to make this roster. Hes got a solid chance especially given this: At least one rookie college free agent has made the Broncos active roster out of training camp in 13 of the last 14 years, including Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris in 2011.

Im just going to showcase everything, Lindsay said.

Being from Denver, Lindsay gets asked all the time by his fellow rookies about his city. Hes sort of Denvers first ambassador, along with rookie offensive lineman Sam Jones, whos a sixth-round pick out of Arizona State and also hails from the Mile High City.

A lot of times they think (Denver) is just cold, Lindsay said. Now, they get to see its dry, its hot. Its beautiful.

It didnt take long for Lindsay to have his first welcome-to-pro-football moment by simply walking into the locker room.

Its like, `Dang Davante Adams Jersey , its really here, Lindsay said. Now its time for me to go and seize the moment.

While with the Buffaloes, Lindsay was an integral piece of the offense as he recorded back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. The 5-foot-8, 190-pound running back brought an edge and intensity to the backfield, but didnt get selected in the recent draft.

Still, he feels like he landed in a good situation with his hometown team. Lindsay joins a backfield that counts Devontae Booker as its veteran after severing ties with C.J. Anderson. Royce Freeman was drafted in the third round out of Oregon to play a big role as well.

Lindsay and Freeman two Pac-12 tailbacks Jones saw plenty of while at Arizona State.

Im excited to wear the same jersey as him and Phil now, instead of having them run all over our defense, Jones said. We can run all over somebody else.

Lindsay impressed the Broncos brass and coaching staff at his pro day by turning in a time of 4.39 seconds in his 40-yard dash. He also shined at the Shrine Game, where he drew some comparisons to New England running back James White.

But I dont want to be like anybody else, Lindsay said. I want to be like Phillip Lindsay, establishing myself with special teams and getting into the playbook as a running back. Im happy to be a part of the team and Im ready to get things going.

NOTES: Jones said hes been learning the playbook under the tutelage of Broncos OL Connor McGovern. Definitely a leg up going into camp, Jones said. WR DaeSean Hamilton of Penn State was wearing big glasses that wouldve made LB Von Miller proud. I took notices of the type of glasses that he wears, said Hamilton, a fourth-round selection. I like really fancy glasses Ezekiel Elliott Jersey Elite , big glasses. David Williams, a seventh-round pick out of Arkansas, said of the wide-open running back competition: Its actually a great situation. If it was me in college, Id go to this school if it was a school because the situation is so good. LB Keishawn Bierria, a sixth-round pick from Washington, on learning the playbook: Its a lot. But thats why we have the vets. We have the vets to lean on. Theyll also serve as teachers for us, too. The more time we spend with them and get knowledge from them, it will be a lot easier. ILB Josey Jewell, a fourth-round pick out of Iowa, is fond of his nickname The Outlaw. It happened in college and hopefully it keeps going, Jewell said.
