Game Recap: Bulls 100, Celtics 89

Player of the Game: Let’s go ahead and get this over with up front: Joakim Noah owned this game. Noah usually performs well against the Celtics and openly dislikes Boston’s Kevin Garnett. He also hates losing — which the Bulls did on Tuesday night in Memphis — so maybe he was playing with an extra edge. Whatever […]

Celtics-Bulls Preview

Something that has been true ever since Tom Thibodeau took over remains true this season, even throughout the injuries and personnel changes: the Bulls are rarely going to lose two games in a row. After getting outscored 31-19 in the fourth quarter and falling to the Thunder, the Bulls once again bounced back. They turned […]

That’s seven out of 10 now: Bulls 96, “Celtics” 83

Okay, let me get the extenuating circumstances out of the way. The “Boston Celtics” were playing without their best player (Kevin Garnett), their top reserve (Rasheed Wallace), and another key roleplayer (Marquis Daniels). Due to the extreme shorthandedness, the “Celtics” starters have been putting in a lot of PT, particuarly Rajon Rondo, who has now […]

Game 6: Are you kidding me?!

No, seriously…are you kidding me?! I don’t even know where to begin. Really. I have no freaking idea. Remember that scene in The Princess Bride when Inigo Montoya said: “Let me ‘splain. [pause] No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup is marry’ Humperdinck in a little less than half an hour. So all […]

Rondo’s foul and other thoughts

The ruling is in: NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson believes that Rondo’s ear-boxing of Brad Miller was just a plain old foul. Said Stu: “We felt Rondo was making a basketball play and going for the ball after a blown defensive assignment by the Celtic team. In terms of the criteria […]

Game 5: What a waste

Early on in this series, I could have accepted and might even have been pleased with a moral victory. But that was then, and right now all I can see is a wasted opportunity that — in my mind, if not yet in fact — cost my team its last best chance of advancing to […]

Game 4: Epic redemption

And to think, I was ready — several times — to dub this baby “The Free Throw Game.” As in, “Missed free throws cost the Bulls the chance to tie this series at two games a piece.” It wasn’t just the nine misses (26-for-35). It was when some of those misses occurred. You know, at the worst possible times. First, Tyrus […]
