Both should be real good games. Bulls -7 seems like a lot though, I may bet on Knicks +7 and try and scoop the pot when Bulls win by 3!

Bulls and Blazers win tonight, both less than 5 point games.

The OKC Thunder aren't really playing up to their hype, hopefully they can pick it up soon before it's too late for them. Luckily, it's only the beginning of the season but in a hostile environment, away, with the funk their in, I see the Blazers taking it.

tredigs
11-04-2010, 09:25 PM
I guess all that hype about Rose gaining a 3pt shot over the summer was just smoke. It's not that he's missing the shots, it's that they don't look good; He just doesn't have that stroke.

Gallo... now he has found that stroke. Killed it.

And yeah Corey, it is. His wrist was definitely bothering him earlier on, and it probably did him a world of good that the ceiling started falling in MSG the other day. It gave him a couple extra days of rest for it, seems to have worked.

The secret is out on Rose my friend. PSD might hate on the guy (due mostly to the ridiculous out-pouring of love that is thrown out there by Bulls fans/Bulls fans natural rivals hating on him), but any NBA fan knows how good he is and just how great of a penetrator the kid is. Him/Westrbook/'Reke/Curry/Rondo... I could watch them cut it up on the way to the hoop all day, and Rose might be the best of 'em all at it. And his passing does look better this year, he's getting a lot more conscious about finding the open looks.

Even though Fields is starting, Douglas will get more run most games. Dantoni really likes playing Felton and Douglas together and thats where Douglas plays best because hes not the main facilitator, but more of a scorer. Also will give you a couple of steals a game too.

Wonder what thibs answer will be to why he didn't put rose back in? They probably would have pulled off the come back if he was in.

They're playing Boston o the road tomorrow I can see y he did it.

I disagree. When we cut the lead to 8 with about 4 minutes left, you have to put Rose and Noah back in the game. They're both young, 4 minutes won't take any toll on their bodies.

Absolutely, thibs threw in the towel

:confused: So he would rather lose both games then try to win the one tonight? No way bulls have a chance tomorrow coming off a back to back playing in boston. Thibs will have to take this one as a learning experience.

That's what I'm saying. There really isn't a logical explanation. It's one thing if it's Shaq or Yao, but not with Rose and Noah.

Nice argument :rolleyes:

It's just a stupid discussion. "4 minutes don't matter they young"...

Well it does matter, we were down several possessions with four minutes to go. We have to play a tough game on the road tomorrow. Both Rose and Noah had already played near their normal minutes but also expend a lot of energy because of the high pace the game was played at.

We also just gave Noah a 5 year deal, he'll turn 31 years old during the last year of his contract, it's a good idea to allot his minutes when we really need him, not in a regular season game that is already lost and the first part of a back to back.

You know we're going to need both those guys to play 38+ tomorrow if we have a chance to win.

Yeah, but we could have probably won tonight if they both play 38+ mins. Not to mention it will be much more difficult to win in Boston no matter how fresh they are. Play them the extra 4 mins tonight and get a win, so you know you are getting a win instead of trying for tomorrow.

I don't think we could have probably won. When you are down six points with four minutes to go, you have about a 15% chance of winning. The Bulls were down 8 with 4 to go.

Kobe had a bad shootin nite, but still came thru and made a key shot. he helped his team out by rebounding and creating plays. Durant has done nothing key to help them win this game.

Absolutely, we dont have a post presence, we struggle in the half court at times, and we have trouble keeping bigger teams off the boards at times as well. Good thing is we have one of the lowest payrolls in the league, we have expiring contracts, we have Cole Aldrich who will get more comfortable with more experience, and we have Nick Collison coming back.

I can agree with that as well. Do I expect him to be? No. Do I think he can? Absolutely. He's the best rebounding PG in the league, and is right there with Rose and BD as the most physically gifted PG's.

Baller1
11-05-2010, 01:52 AM
Honestly, Nick Collison being out right now and Brooks' unprecedented man-crush for Kristic is holding this team back.

Give Ibaka more minutes, lets Aldrich get in there, and get Collison healthy; then things will turn around (hopefully).

Once Nick Collison gets back, that will all be shored up. Collison is one of the most underrated players in the NBA. He's Varejao without the flopping.
