Lakers FINALLY win [hopefully] and Pau Gasol is listed as day-to-day with a strained hamstring.

Bc I love watching games like this when no one picks them on PSD, We win every time

(Ex: Celtics, Spurs, Thunder, Hornets, Hawks, and Miami)

mavs-jazz arguably one of the biggest games of the season to this date. Both playing the best basketball in the league, winning 7 straight, and are 2/3 in the western conference. Both have a member in the top 3 of nba.com's race to mvp. Its gunna be a fun game.

we always blow out the mavs in SLC, but somehow I dont think today will be the same case. Both teams playing great ball, hopefully homecourt tips the game in our favor!

and hopefully Dirk gets ejected like he always does in SLC!

First thing I've noticed about the Raptors is they can match OKC's athleticism, which is hard to do. They are fast and athletic for sure.

My Knickerbockers taking on Chris Paul... lets hope its a game. we've won our last 5 on the road so who knows.....


other than that, Rondo vs Rose is gonna be EPIC. i absolutely can't wait. i should route for the bulls. but lets face it, Knicks aren't gonna have a better record then Boston (this year:D) no matter what. I'm looking for Rondo to dominate and run circles around D rose. hopefully he gets a tripdub

12-03-2010, 08:50 PM
A Bulls win in Boston would be a nice pick-me-up after that Orlando blow-out. Tough to come by though.

ManRam
12-03-2010, 08:54 PM
The Magic are down Nelson, Peaches, JJ and Dwight...and I still think we should beat Detroit. Our bench has been balling lately. Vince plays better with the bench anyways...he's already got 11. I think Bass will beast tonight.

Should be a fun game!

We had a Mo Pete sighting in Toronto for us too, I think it's his first minutes of the season.

What happened to Dwight?

It's my nightly "damn, Brandon Bass is so silky from 15 feet".

What happened to Dwight?

Dwight and Peaches flew home because of a stomach virus. They'll miss tomorrow's game too. JJ and Jam Jam were game time decisions with the same virus, but didn't play. Maybe they play tomorrow.

Anderson was helped off the court to the locker room...down to 8 men.

ManRam
12-03-2010, 09:17 PM
The Bulls suck on D.

I haven't seen them enough this year...but they were one of the 2-3 worst teams at defending us thus far into the season on Wednesday. Certainly not overly elite. Boozer won't help with that either.

Baller1
12-03-2010, 09:17 PM
The Bulls suck on D.

There's no doubt they'll be an elite offensive team soon. The defense is going to be their bar this season.

It will take some time for Boozer to get back to game speed and to feel at home in that system...but the Bulls have looked real bad thus far in the last two games verse the two best teams in the East.

They certainly don't look like they've made the next step yet. But again, this isn't their final product.

Yup. Averaging 20+ PPG. Boards are low, but thats because of Reggie Evans who gets every board in the area. In games without Evans, his RPG has spiked up.

John Walls Era
12-03-2010, 10:43 PM
I should also mention that Bargnani has been a nightmare to teams. Opposing players just look at their coach, as if they are asking what more they can do on D, when he makes those crazy dirk-esque shots.

thus, Rondo is better PG than Rose but Rose is better player than Rondo.

Both of them are one of the best PGs in the league who every teams are hoping to have.
and you guys are lucky to have one of them on your team.
so stop the nonsense and respect opposing player.

I know he has to score on that team...but you fail to realize how many players would score as much or more than Rose with the same amount of attempts. ALOT of players would score 28 with 25 shots.

But if you want me to answer your backwards logic think of this. The Celtics have been together for what is now the 4th season. They have a higher FG% and Rondo is averaging 14 assists which is the highest in his career.

Pierce has not gotten better than the last 3 years, niether has Ray and KG is better this year than last, but not better than his first year with the Celtics. Anyone who watches the Celtics know Rondo is prolonging these guys careers.

Yes, they are.

But no, you're not crazy for thinking the Celtics would beat them in a 7 game series. I think the same.

no more Ben Gordon to hit those crazy shots this time :D

exactly, Rondo might be a better playmaker than Rose but the Bulls just don't have a very good team to begin with.

lol now they don't have a good enough team but when the Bulls are doing good they are "title contenders" etc.

Rose would not average 14 assists on the Celtics. If you honestly think he would, look up Arroyo.

I don't agree with that hypothetical.. I have no idea how or to what degree the Big 3 would accelerate Rose's growth. But I also don't think Rondo would be the player he is today without having played with them.

They're still one of the best teams in the East. Why does that bother you? Boston is clearly the best.

On one hand Bulls fans are saying their team can beat Boston/Miami/Orlando in the East, but at the same time you're saying "If Rose had better teammates he'd average 3,000 assists a game"

Rondo's assists are up over his first couple of years -- it's either Rondo has gotten better, or the aging big 3 have??? Logic tells me it's Rondo getting better

Rose is a better scorer, a much better shooter - but Rondo is better at everything else. In a world where the only thing that matters is scoring, I'll take Rose all day. If we're talking getting others going, defense, hustle and everything else out there, I'll (as will most) take Rose

Thats not really saying much, the East is pretty weak

Obviously the Big 3 made Rondo the player he is right now and turned him into a star based on their teachings. What I'm saying is, and what I hoped you gathered from this game, (if you looked at it without your previous bias) is that now it's Rondo who's keeping these guys going.

He is calling the plays, telling people where to be and most importantly getting EVERYONE involved. Wether it was Pierce or Semih ****ing Erden, he was hitting them in stride where they could continue right into an easy basket.

Rondo runs the show and you should know from having Noah, you dont have to score to be an impact player.

where's the Bulls fans that called me crazy for saying the Celtics would beat them in a 7 game series ..what is it now? three hall of famers that are too good for every team now or are the Bulls still capable of beating them?

I never said that we could beat the Celtics specifically in a 7 game series, just the Magic and Heat. But the past two games, our rebounding and defense has been atrocious. I would have preferred to see Booz coming off of the bench in that first game and let him get comfortable with the team by easing him in, but obviously that was not Thibs' plan. There are no excuses for giving Boston of all teams, such easy baskets and turning it into a layup drill. When Booz is back to his old self I'm sure the offense will come easier against the better teams in the league, but there is still improvements to be made at the defensive end. On the other hand, if this team is to succeed then EVERYONE needs to buy into Thibs' defensive schemes, and that would have to include Boozer.

Boston's missing two bigs..Bulls at least had Boozer out there hitting shots

Not kissing Boston's ***. You look at everything in such extremes. It's gotta be tiring to watch sports for you.

And, yes, Rose, in my opinion, is better than Rondo. But I also think Boston is better than Chicago. Don't see how that's *** kissing. I just don't think you know how to handle someone else's opinion.

Would have rather waited until like March to play Boston in Boston again to know where the Bulls stood then. I don't like the fact we already played them the two games we are going to play them in Boston already.
