I think the magic bull games will be a blowout unless Magics are unconscious From the three. Miami and Celtics should decide who lock up the second seed today.

I'm not really terribly excited for the Magic game. No Dwight = who cares. We're nothing without him. It would take an absolute flukish effort to win. We win this game like 1 out of 10 times without Dwight basically.

Yeah. I like that we're giving him those deep shots. I'd rather him shoot those all day, especially with out Dwight there to help out. But if he's making them, that's bad news.

Anderson actually looking good. He's a really good rebounder...his defense is just terrible.

I do like Gil playing SG. He can't play the point, because right now he couldn't get past an oak tree.

I don't actually like Gil anywhere on the court...but if he has to play, SG is definitely the spot.

Defense.

It's really that simple. They don't need to score a ton on offense. Check their record in games where they score under 90. It's amazing. I think it's like 12-5...and consider that no other contender has a winning record in such games. The really just don't need to score a ton, and that's not a bad thing. I'd rather hold teams to 80 points and only have to score 90 than let teams score 100 and hope to score 110. The rest of the team is also just really consistent night in night out. Teams like Orlando and Miami, for example, are full of inconsistent role players...and that's why they look great at teams, and look awful at times. Chicago doesn't have that, and that's why they are so consistent as a team. That and the defense.

"Fixt"?


You could say that, I guess, but it's not entirely true. I'm sure even you didn't think all three would be worse than Chicago :shrug: Or at least that Miami would be this far under 70 wins, or that Orlando's record would suddenly get so much worse, or that Boston would trade Perk and suddenly look mortal.

I do think they've underperformed as much as they were overhyped. It's not one or the other.

It does also help that the Central Division is horrendous.


What a play Rose. We need someone to ****ing block a shot of his. Anderson and Bass are such softies.

04-10-2011, 01:54 PM

No, they're just shooting 50% from three and getting a lot of offensive rebounds.

This has been Orlando's game for the past 3 years. Rely on the 3.

With Dwight in there Rose would think twice before driving to the rim.

ManRam
04-10-2011, 01:55 PM
Bulls are still shooting like 65%. It's crazy that it's tied. Again, good to see us actually hitting shots. It might help that we're not on pace to shoot 30 today...might have something to do with the fact that the Bulls don't have to worry about Dwight and are guarding the three, so we are making extra passes because there are less looks. Either way, I like the movement.

k.smith904
04-10-2011, 01:55 PM

LOL relax obviously the Bulls were taking them lightly there. Remember this game doesn't really mean anything to the Bulls now they locked up the East and the fact that Dwight isn't playing the Bulls feel they should win easily without putting up their best effort. The Magic are playing hard though, and Bulls aren't which is why they tied the game.

Jameer's passing has been great...he's gotta stay in front of Rose a little better (not happening). I expect Rose to go off. No one is going to stop him if/when he gets past his defender. No Dwight, no challenge in the paint.

I know, it's obvious the Bulls were playing sloppy basketball to end that third quarter. They weren't getting rebounds and letting Jason Richardson drive and dunk on them at the hoop. Now compare to the defense and rebounding you saw against the Celtics to what you seen? Personally I don't care at all if the Bulls win or lose the next three games.

and what a typical heat comment to claim that the magic WILL beat the Bulls because of a meaningless scoring run to the end the first half of a meaningless game.

obviously it will be competitive, but you can't determine the outcome based on a couple of possessions from a single game. jesus christ man.

Rose hasn't done well against Orlando.

Shoots 37%.

He went 5-13 in game one. 15 points.
He went 6-21 in game two. 22 points.
He went 9-20 in game three. 24 points

A lot of his layups have been pretty uncontested (granted, he's made amazing individual efforts). There's no denying that Howard is the best rim protected, and that Anderson and Bass are poor paint defenders...

True. You don't think he'd be shooting a few more jumpers if it wasn't so easy for him to get to the paint? He's only taken 3 jumpers...the rest have come in the paint.

I mean, look at the difference between his shot chart today (http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/shotchart?gameId=310410019) and his shot chart when they lost to us (http://espn.go.com/nba/shotchart?gameId=301201004).

I see two shots in the paint in that first game...one at the rim. Even his last game against us, he took 14 of his shots outside the paint.


Dwight is a factor. Rose would still be aggressive, but he wouldn't be getting shots off in the paint as much, for sure. He's the most intimidating and impactful defensive player in the league. He would dictate how Rose would be playing a bit.

No it's just stupid that you guys are actually trying to bash the Bulls. Because the Magic without Dwight are only down by one point at half time. When the Bulls have nothing to play for and aren't putting up much of a effort defensivly or rebounding wise. Even Jon Barry and Michael Wilbon were talking at half time about everybody with Rose not playing very hard today. Since they have really nothing major to play for right now.

If the Bulls are Magic were to meet in the 2nd round it would probably be a very good series, everyone is kind of down on Orlando this year but there still a pretty dangerous team.

Think its unfair however though to look at the 1st half of this game which means very little to the bulls and go if there only down 1 without dwight they would kill them with dwight! Also Anderson while is not dwight has had a very good game in his place.

Yeah CHI isn't playing well, but they don't really have anything play for now, plus they don't have Dwight, so it's only natural the Bulls get bored. It would happen to any team that's in this situation.

ManRam
04-10-2011, 02:21 PM
I do think Chicago is the better team, but I do think Orlando has the ability to flip the switch a bit. They do play inconsistently at times, and there are obvious situations where you can tell that they step it up mentally and energetically, and the gains are tremendous. Come playoff time, I don't see a lack of effort at all. Chicago comes with that every game...and we don't. Hopefully in the playoffs we can get back to what makes us good: defense, and that all starts with effort, which again is so up and down.

However, I wouldn't look too deep into this. I do think both teams are playing at a high level, but it's one game.


Ryno has been huge.

Oh, and JJ coming back will help a lot. Since he's gone down, our bench has become a weakness. It was so strong when he was healthy...that might be key as well.

I think that's a hard game to compare, because the Bulls got blown out in that game. It's obvious in a blow out a guy probably isn't gonna drive to the hoop as much. But that was a different Bulls team offensivly and defensivly then. They were still gelling with Boozer first game back and having 8 new players and new coaching staff. Which is why they started 9-8 and have gone 50-12 since.



Im not basing my opinion on today its what I've seen when they have played before.

That makes no sense either. How could a team be 11-0 against the Lakers,Thunder, Mavs, Spurs, Heat, Celtics, Magic since early December and you realisticly think that about the Bulls? How could you have a negative thought about the team, unless you saw them playing in games like this when they weren't putting up a lot of effort against lesser teams.

The Bulls don't really care about that number one overall seed, as long as they have it over the Lakers and everyone else in the West. Plus the Magic are playing for more, because they wanna prove they can beat the Bulls again(the Bulls beat them pretty easily the last two games). Plus they are trying more because they don't have Dwight. So they feel they have to step up more.

It might not be true, but Deng has been very valuable this season. He gives the team scoring they need to go with Rose. But Deng defense is often very very good. So the combo of both of those things makes him a player this team couldn't afford to lose. While as good as Boozer is scoring the ball and rebounding when he's playing well. The Bulls were obviously able to get by without him at times this year. I don't think they would have done as well without Deng.
