Quick Reaction: Nets 106, Bulls 89 (Game 1)

MVP (Most Valuable Player): Deron Williams looked great carving up any defender the Bulls put on him, tallying 22 points (9-15 from the field), seven assists and three steals. Williams had an impressive second half to the season, and if this is how he is going to play in the series the Bulls are in deep, deep trouble.

LVP (Least Valuable Player): This could really go to every single player on the Bulls with the exception of Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson, but Luol Deng was especially bad. Deng went 3-11 to score just six points. With Joakim Noah hobbled and Derrick Rose out, Deng needed to step up and he didn’t. Also, Rip Hamilton looked absolutely dreadful in seven minutes of action…which is why he played just seven minutes.

Defining Moment: Late in the third quarter, Deron Williams stole the ball from Luol Deng and took it the other way for an emphatic reverse dunk. The game was over before then (the Bulls were down 25 at that point), but that put the cap on a terrible game for Chicago.

X factor: The Nets had 40 points in the paint in the first half. The Bulls had 35 total points in the first half. If that doesn’t explain the game, I don’t know what does.

That Was … awful: The only positive that could come out of this is that maybe it was rock bottom. Tom Thibodeau will rip into the Bulls, showing them everything they did wrong on the defensive end (which could potentially take a week). Hopefully they can sure some of the leaks up, find a tiny amount of offense and come back and make this a series.

    Bulls may be hoping for D Rose to come back…the players know he can play and that fact is likely hurting morale a LOT. Can you imagine Jordan or Pippen or, heck, John Paxson sitting out after being cleared medically during the playoffs???? Never.

    I don’t get Rose. Seems like a paper lion. Hope we can trade him for something good?

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you
    need to publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t speak about such subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!

    Asking questions are actually fastidious thing if you are not understanding something entirely,
    however this piece of writing offers nice understanding yet.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to share it with someone!
