I've been pretty good with calling upsets lately, so I think the Pacers are going to win tonight.

Knicks will bounce back.

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was sent home from shootaround with an illness, and he's a game-time decision for Tuesday night's game against the Washington Wizards.

Yeah, JaVale is one of my favorite players, he has TT like potential. Crawford has been playing very well tonight, I've heard a lot of people complaining about his range, but he has been having no trouble shooting the 3 tonight.

I ****ing love Ronnie Brewer though. Dude is probably the best SG at playing the passing lanes, and he is a straight up lockdown defender. He finishes strong at the rim as well for what he lacks in a jumper.

^It's just I think the games now are important for seeding purposes, so as a Bulls fan I'd hate constantly see them blow leads against mediocre competition. They'll still win though, not having Nick Young, Blatche, Lewis, etc...... is too much for the Wizards to overcome imo.

Yeah, and the Bulls come back with a vengeance in the 2nd half when they play like **** in the 1st. I'm not worried. Thibs is going to chew into the Bulls in the locker room, and I doubt we'll be seeing Crawford drilling more 3's in the 2nd half.

Cullksinikers
03-15-2011, 09:14 PM
Actually, Kurt Thomas hit a three.

50-46 at the half.

I expect Tom to go off on them and the Bulls to snap back into it and play like they did in the 1st quarter and pull away from these guys.

I agree and as a Bulls fan it's annoying to watch at times. Lately it seems like they let teams hang around and then turn it on in the 3rd or 4th quarter. Which is fine but you aren't gonna get your players much rest when you aren't having big blow outs. That said there has been games where they couldn't flip the switch on(like against Warriors and Raptors) or did it too late(like Clippers,76ers, Nets, Bobcats). Too me playing the Nets,Pacers and Kings are scary up and coming games. Because if the Bulls half *** it and don't play defense it for part of those games, they could easily lose. I rather play good teams almost, because I know the Bulls will play hard for most of the game.

Well right now yall are in the 10th spot in the lottery I think cuz theres currently 4 teams in the West that have 30 or more wins and out of the playoffs, but the chances of landing a top 3 pick is slim at that spot and if you make the playoffs, its probably the 15th pick. So its not worth getting your young guys some playoff experience while dropping just 5 spots down in the draft? Considering this draft, it isn't even a big deal.

Well right now yall are in the 10th spot in the lottery I think cuz theres currently 4 teams in the West that have 30 or more wins and out of the playoffs, but the chances of landing a top 3 pick is slim at that spot and if you make the playoffs, its probably the 15th pick. So its not worth getting your young guys some playoff experience while dropping just 5 spots down in the draft? Considering this draft, it isn't even a big deal.

you never know what'll happen in the lotto.take us,we barely missed the playoffs in 08,slotted on record to get the 9th/10th pick...but ended up with the 1st.now it was the right call to no make it wasnt it?

besides any lotto pick is better than getting trounced in the first round by the one seed(especially when you dont have a guy your trying to build around)

What were they saying about him?

basically laughing at how hard he was trying to get his triple double even at the expense of his team.

He def. had a good game but, I thought that last dunk he made was kind of stupid. I can understand if you are trying to pump your team up but, that wasn't the case.

Roy is probably the best player in the league right now with the stop and pop and breaking the defense with his dribble, but this kind of offense is putting too much grind in his knees!!

Should have traded him while his value was oober high.

Blazers have the depth to match-up with the Mavs in the playoffs, it would be a great series if these two teams met up.

Nice alley oop by Rudy to Aldridge.

Rudy would flourish even more if he's given more freedom with the ball other than being a spot up shooter.

So, during the Mavs really hot streak since Dirk got back healthy, they pretty much beat up on the dregs/average teams in the league, while losing pretty much every close game they played against the better teams (lost to Chicago by 5, no by 1, LA by 5, Portland by 3, Memphis by 1, denver by 1) save for one good win against Boston. 1-6 against good teams in close games since late January... how are they not soft/choke artists again? if this is the best Mavs team you've ever seen, you must have been in a coma during the year they went to the Finals.

this is nothing more than a second round shellacking at the hands of the Lakers... possibly even another first round bust depending on what seed they end up with in the first round.

I don't think the 2 seed matters much for the Lakers. I mean we'll take it lol, but even if we end up at #3, we'll be fine. Dallas needs that #2 seed though. Need every advantage they can get against LA.

Mavs are still a great team though, very deep and have multiple scorers
