the safe prediction is Celtics in 5.

but im going with a sweep because I don't see the Celtics losing even if they play bad in one of the games. I feel they can really take advantage of chicago's nonexistent defense in the paint by constantly pounding them with Perk, Powe, Davis, and of course KG.

KG's health is what can make this a quick series, or a scary one for the Celtics. I think the Bulls are good enough to take a game, maybe two, if KG is healthy. Without KG this could go 7.

Celtics in 6

Celtics in 5....if KG was fully healthy, it would be a sweep, but Bulls can steal one at home.

Draco
04-15-2009, 11:29 PM
Hard to predict without seeing how the series goes after the first two games win or lose. If the Bull's can play their game they should be able to win one at home.. and maybe two overall. The Bull's are still a developing team without a legit inside scoring presence and the Celtics are still the defending champs. Hopefully this series resembles something like the Bull's vs. Pistons series from a few years back. Celtics in 5 or 6.

the safe prediction is Celtics in 5.

Why do you think so? If they proved anything last year it was that they tend to ease into playoff series kind of slowly and stretch them out over a lot of games. And last year's team was better than this one, imo. I think it takes them 6 games to get the job done.

Celtics in six...Chicago has alot of talented perimeter scorers, and this year Boston doesn't have James Posey to help seal the perimeter. With Garnett not 100% they won't be able to protect the paint as consistently as in the past.

A healthy Boston team would sweep the Bulls.

Garnett not at 100% remains to be seen but the Celtics health isn't exactly the determining factor as I see it. I'd feel more confident about the Bulls taking the series to six if they were as defensively strong as they were a few years ago but with Noah and Tyrus playing larger roles, Hinrich playing a minimal role, Deng out for the season and Salmons supposedly struggling with a strain or whatever.. I'm guessing the series goes 5 and hoping for 6. If the Celtics take the Bulls out of their perimeter game then this is a short series. If the Bulls can play their game despite the Celtics defense then I think this can be a competitive series. Unfortunately I think this is going to be more of a learning experience than a competition but I'll reserve a firm stand on predicting 5 or 6 until I see how the Bulls come to play.

Interesting points...I think the Bulls could be this years Hawks. They have enough depth and talent to really give the Celtics fits. They have played great ball down the stretch (despite that stinker vs. Toronto last night) and I believe they are better now than their record indicates. Even though you hate to see a player like Nocioni leave, I think the trade for John Salmons and Brad Miller have really made them a much better team.

Rondo vs. Rose should be an incredible battle within a battle by itself. I'm a really big Rose fan, he carries himself with the same kind of maturity and understanding as a Brandon Roy. While Rondo is, like Rose one of the brightest young point guard as well. They will go at each other...and the eyeballs will ping pong faster than at a tennismatch between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

the celtics are equal or better at every position than the bulls besides point guard although even that is debatable at this point... the celtics have a better and deeper bench and they have a better coach as well as the home-court advantage... i wont even go into the experience advantage the celtics have... i dont see how even the biggest bulls homer could pick the bulls to win anything more than a game in this series... the bulls would have a legitemate chance to beat the magic, but they choked horribly and for that their punishment will be a SWEEP!

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says there is a strong possibility that Kevin Garnett will miss the whole postseason.

The All-Star forward has missed most of the last two months with a strained right knee. He had been recovering with an eye towards the playoffs, but Rivers said he had to shut Garnett down at practice Thursday morning and "there's no way" he could play right now.

Rivers said on a radio show that Garnett was frustrated but understood that it was the right thing to do.

The defending NBA champions begin the best-of-seven first round series against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

If thats the case I am picking Bulls in 7.

Celtics had a healther and much stronger team last year imo and the Hawks took them to 7. Obviously without Posey and Pj Brown, this team is a much different playoff team and in my opinion much weaker team then last year. With the addition of Steph Marb, I think this makes your bench even weaker as when I have seen him with the Celtics, he was just god awful, and the only player I would have serious concern about is Eddie House since he is just a ridiculous three point shooter, and Mikki Moore doing all the little dirty work. Again thats my opinion.

While people say Bulls dont have playoff experience, you have to remember, Gordon, Hinrich, Miller, Tyrus Thomas, Tim Thomas, and Salmons have all been in the playoffs. So they do know what to expect, but this is basically a learning period for Rose and Noah.

And last year you were stacked from the starters to the bench and the Hawks took you to 7 games with everyone healthy. I am just going by history. If Garnett was playing this series I would have said C's in 5. Thats how important he is imo, especially in the playoffs.

If the Bulls can keep up this kind of luck we just might be able to win it all. KG hurt in the first series. Maybe Dwight goes down in round 2. Lebron in round 3. And Kobe in the championship! I'd rather be lucky than good!

Before everyone yells at me for wishing injuries on players I am joking so lay off and lighten up.

Super.
04-16-2009, 10:54 AM
I dont see any real threat from the Bulls. especially if KG is back. The Celtic Defense overpowers the Bulls. The Celtics 2nd unit is really coming together. Tony Allen, Powe/Davis/Scal/Moore, Marbury and House are really seeming to mesh together, especially Marbury and House. Rondo is better than Rose (At this moment in Roses career, yes Rondo is)

Celtics in 5, 6 Maybe

But KG isn't back and he might miss the series. This imo IS HUGE, since his defensive presence in the paint will be missed when Rose drives in the lane.

I think the only team Boston has no chance of beating in the East is Cleveland. Orlando as good as they've played look very vulnerable...whereas Boston will play with a chip on a shoulder. This is still a resilient championship hardened basketball team.

I personally think they will still make the ECF...but Cleveland will beat them if KG doesn't miraculously recover.

But KG isn't back and he might miss the series. This imo IS HUGE, since his defensive presence in the paint will be missed when Rose drives in the lane.

Ok but Powe + Scal + Allen are back. Allen is easily our best defender off the bench and perk? one of the best shot blockers in the game

btw Rondo > Rose (This point in Rose's career, i believe rose will most likely reach CP3 level)

Who's going to stop Rondo from driving to the lane?

But from this year with Garnett against the bulls C's are 2-0 while without Garnett C's are 0-1.

This should really be an interesting series in my opinion. I think a lot of people are underestimating the Bulls after the deal for Salmons and Miller. Can not wait for Saturday.

Is Brady gonna throw some of his 51 touchdowns for the Celtics or something to add points? You're an idiot dude. I said REALISTICLY. That means that in the real world, there is a chance that the series could go 6 or 7 games for either team.

I guess you know everything about sports. So are you telling me there is absolutely no chance the Bulls are with in 20 points of the Celtics in any game? Because you said the Bulls can't even compete. How many times did your parents drop you on your head as a baby?

I would have to say the Bulls stand a GREAT chance of winning this series. Without Garnet the Celtics are just a good team. With Salmons defense, at least one of the remaining stars should be held in check. As for the big men, I think the Bulls trio is better than the Celts bigs.

I think the key to the series is brad miller. With the playoff tempo, his half court passing skills can be the difference. If Brad steps it up, Bulls win.

cool it. all they said was your bench is garbage, not your team. Realistically, the Bulls will take it to a game 6 or 7 before being beaten by the celtics. Last night they choked instead of winning an easy game vs Toronto, and i wouldn't be too surprised to see them choke down the stretch. Most of it is our coaches fault though

Well, KG being out for some of, and most likely all of the series makes it more competitive, but I still don't think the Bulls can take it. They have a better chance to take their games at home and push it to 7 games, but I don't think they have enough to take the series still.

If the Bulls are going to have any shot, you'll obviously need a great series from Rose, Gordon, Salmons and Hinrich, but I think for the Bulls to pull off the upset, Tyrus Thomas needs to break out. If he can, and play like he did at LSU in the tourney to get himself drafted that high, and really just turn it on and play at another level he couldn't otherwise, it would make the series tough for the Celtics to win. But I'm not sure the Celtics, who are still a good defensive team will allow that too happen, but that's why we play the game.

I agree, Rose can take over a game within seconds, like against Toronto before the end of the half. I don't think Rondo can do that.

But Rose vs Rondo(good defender) is going to be a key matchup for the Bulls and the Celtics.

It will be, and it will be important for both teams for their PG's to play well. But you kinda know what you're going to get, or should get out of Rondo, Ray and Pierce, same goes for Rose, Gordon and Salmons.

I think the key to this series lies in the matchup at the 4. Tyrus has been playing well as of late, and if he can ratchet that up another level, the Bulls could pull of the upset, if he gets outplayed by the committee there for the Celtics, the Bulls will lose.

At least thats how i see it. :shrug:

Why do you think so? If they proved anything last year it was that they tend to ease into playoff series kind of slowly and stretch them out over a lot of games. And last year's team was better than this one, imo. I think it takes them 6 games to get the job done.

This is a very valid point, and without KG, I could see this series going the distance. Bulls can be a fairly dangerous team, especially if BG catches fire from deep. Even with that being said (Restated) I still think the Celts get it done fairly easily.

If VDN will play Noah and Miller simultaneously often in this series, the Bulls may actually have a chance to pull off an upset. But for that to happen, Rose will need to have a great series and the Bulls will have to shoot pretty well in every game.

Even without KG, the Celtics have a very disciplined and simply put a very good team defense. Tom Thibodeau gets a lot of kudos but not enough for what he's done to influence the defense on that team. If the Bulls shoot very well, we can win. If not, the Celtics in 6 at the most.

There is no confidence in bulls fans? Im a huge bulls fan and i think the bulls actually should win this series now that kg is out. the only difference maker on the celtics is pierce. im looking at all these matchups and i see the bulls have so many advantages in this game. im going to take rose over rondo, kirk over marbury, bg over r. allen (only b/c of how explosive bg can be but ray has way better d slight edge to BG), salmons/kirk over house, p. pierce over salmons, salmons over powe, powe over tim thomas, tyrus over glen davis, noah over glen davis, perkins = noah, miller over perkins, noah/miller over moore. just because the celtics have a better season record doesnt mean anything. the season is over and now the postseason begins.

I'm confident that the Bulls can stretch the series, and possibly take it in game 7th. In no way is this a knock on the Celtics. I know the Celtics are a good team (great if you would rather use that word, I'd just rather use good). But the way the Bulls have been playing post-trade, especially to end the season (minus the Toronto game, disgusting), I think that they can bring that energy into the playoffs, and if the Celtics downplay thinking that it's an easy series, they'll be surprised. I'm counting on Rose to really show why he is the ROY and step it up. How confident am I? Not as confident as you Boston fans seem to be, sure, but confident that it could happen.

Haha, I was hoping you would figure that one out. I've never done a sig bet. Maybe make an official "Signature Bet" thread in the NBA forum where we state the bet, and have people choose what will be put into the sigs, or just go to our respected forums and as them what we would want in the opposing's sig? Either or is fine. Could you explain the "no homo" thing though? I remember seeing somewhere that the Laker fans had to put some sig where Kobe had a tiara photoshopped on his head or something and some line that referred to him being a princess. Is that homo or do you just mean no gay porn?

lets see if this gets enough interest and if it does, we wil start a thread. i never did one before either.

man ive seen some sigs with gay porn on it. i couldnt even look at the guy's posts bc it was so gross. kobe wearing a tiara is hilarious, but wierd lol. i was thinkin just a sig of the other team's best player with the final score of the series in the sig. 4-3 or 4-2 etc...

Yes! I would love to see that happen for this series. All the arguing in that thread is pointless, considering it's a close match up and the only ones who think the Hawks will win are Hawk fans, while the ones that think the Heat will win are Heat fans. As far as those who are arguing. I think the whole sig bet is a simple and friendly competition, and can only add to the amount of rooting one does for their team.

Hate to burst your bubble guys, but you're really not allowed to use more than one sig-sized picture in your sigs. The mods have been lax in enforcing this recently, but if all of a sudden we have a ton of people with huge sigs, we're going to need to make everyone conform to the standards outlined in the site rules.

Also, fwiw, only TMs and mods are allowed to post images. I know you guys are just talking sigs, and in cases like this it usually won't get enforced, but just so you know, if you go around posting images a lot you might end up getting warnings/infractions, so just please be advised.

Basically all I've been told explicitly is that they are only for use in the top posts of "official" threads like this (game threads, etc.) to make them look nicer and more "professional".

Without KG The Celtics are a scared cat out in the night. Without KG, CHicago has the resources to turn this into a shootout. The Bulls will be all over the heels of the Celtics and if Brad Miller gets his message out of being more agressive, this could be one of the most interesting series to watch in the playoffs with a lot of potential overtime game and close ball games down the stretch. I wonder if however, Marbury will be used as more of a weapon than a facilitator in the offensive scheme.

Vincent
04-17-2009, 05:11 AM
I'm going to go in two different directions.

Either Bulls in 6 or Boston in 7.

Here's why.

I think games 1&2 are going to be crucial. If the Bulls can steal one from Boston, they'll win the series in 6 (winning games 3,4, 6 at home).

If the series stretches to a game 7, I think the young Bulls (with a history of falling under pressure, and a rookie coach) will lose.

Vincent
04-17-2009, 05:16 AM
people predicting a boston sweep, just haven't been paying attention.

The Bulls have had 2 home losses since the All-Star break. Same as the Celtics.
One of those losses was against the Lakers.

Even the mention of a sweep seems like dissrepect. Especially since this is the only first round match up where I think there will be a major upset.

PennyMy#1
04-17-2009, 06:49 AM
I voted Boston in 5. Seems the most realistic to me. Nothing against the Bulls or what they've played the last, but Boston, still without KG is hard team to win a series against.

Sportfan
04-17-2009, 06:50 AM
We are taking this series sorry to all boston fans but your team will not beat ours without kg

so is KG all we have? Pierce is going to come alive in this series IMO. He'll have 1-2 40 point games. We still have Pierce Allen and Rondo and Perkins and Powe. Rondo will shut down Powe and the bulls can't score that much down low. They're going to have to depend on the wings

Sportfan
04-17-2009, 06:53 AM
Rondo will need to do a heck of a job on Rose.

The Celtics don't have anyone that can match up with the Bulls bigs. Baby and Powe are undersized.

tyrus thomas is the same height as glen davis and powe is a inch smaller. Perkins is only an inch smaller than noah so that wont be much of a problem

Kyben36
04-17-2009, 07:20 AM
Without KG, the bulls have a chance. not a good chance, but a chance. It will take alot from Rose to help us win offensivly. I think that Salmons needs to contain Peirce. Im not to woried about Ray allen, He gets most of his points off 3 pt shots and fast break pull ups. I dont care if gordan cant lock him down, because their is realy no way that you can lock down a 3pt shooter. especialy one of the best in the league. I think im most woried about containing the block. Hopefully though, with KG out, we may have a chance to do it. I think that the Celtics are still favored, but their is a chance that led by ROY Derrick Rose, the bulls pull an upset.

KG was the heart of the defense. His intensity and passion is going to be missed a lot on the court. Offensively, the C's are still the same threat they were before, but their defense took a huge hit.

If KG was healthy and playing bulls would have about a 0.1% chance of winning but without KG. Bulls have a better chance of taking a game in Boston then the heat have of taking one in ATL.

he led us to the 7th seed, and he will help lead us in the playoffs. along with BG7 and Johnny Salmons....Make no mistake Rose has to be very very good, but Gordon and Salmons can lead this team as well.

By the way I woulden't trust a player who has rode the bench all year over a player that has taken a lottery team and lead them into the playoffs without thier alleged "franchise" player.

I knew it wasn't too ridiculous to say Bulls in 6 or 7 with KG out. Great game for the Bulls and Derrick Rose, yet Ray Allen looked like the Allen of last year. Not a good sign for the Celtics.

Celtics still win this series. They could have won the game with Pierce and Allen having horrible games and Rose having a career night. Celtics still win in 6 games. They will win the next 3 then lose 1 and clinch in Chicago. I said that before the series started.


Just stop talking this is derrick rose's series, you have no idea this series is chicago's like i said before rondo isn't on derrick rose level. it's the truth and were was that hall of famer ray allen oh thats right he was still in single digit points aw so sad just wait till this series is over and chicago wins because you idiots honestly think without KG the celtics can win there not good at all without him GO BULLS:clap:

how much confidence do you think comes from beating the world champs on the road? ROY D.Rose is making it seem like they can take it.

once again more excuses and not enough credit to the Bulls.

Rondo had an above average performance and played pretty much at the same level as Rose. Rose outplayed him, but Rondo had a great game. I'll give you Ray Allen, but Paul Pierce didn't pay even close to a horrible game.

I guarantee you the Bulls will not win this series. Derrick Rose is great but he was hitting circus shots with Kendrick Perkins hand in his face all day. That will not continue and Ray Allen will not continue to miss wide open shots.
