Kirk is doubtful, but I didn't have time to make the lineup swap.

Boozer day-to-day as well.

MJ-BULLS
05-01-2011, 07:38 PM
Carlos Boozer (turf toe) missed practice for the third consecutive day on Sunday, and remains questionable for Game 1 vs. the Hawks.
Boozer has been shooting on the side, lifting weights, and riding a stationary bike. The Bulls have their eyes on a championship and obviously don't want Boozer to aggravate the injury in the second round, but we should know his status after shootaround on Monday.

Bulls should win this game by 10+ points. Playing Jamal Crawford on Rose is suicide for him. Don't really care if Carlos Loozer plays or not b/c he's played like a b---- anyways. Hopefully they come out blazin' and get the crowd involved early.

BULLS 108-94

yeah you're right he can't....not really anyone can but i've seen him do a decent job on wade a few times and he can hit the 3. the other plus to the hawks having him is that it allows crawford to be the 6th man where now i'm guessing he'll have to start and hes no pg.

First of all, Rose isnt God.

Second of all, Hinrich can do a better job than anyone else can on the team. Now that you eliminate the ONLY player to do anything productive, they dont stand a chance.

Plus, on offense hes the only one who doesnt play ISO. He plays smart and is a great player for the them.

I hate how lucky the Bulls are.

RZZZA
05-01-2011, 09:55 PM
I didn't say Rose is god, I just said Hinrich can't guard him. I think even Kirk would agree, didnt he have a quote earlier in the year saying how much he dreads guarding Derrick Rose? Or maybe that was Steve Nash...maybe it was both of them actually, I can't remember now.

Kirk being there is better for the Hawks offensively than it is defensively, cuz Kirk is not gonna stop Rose any way. thats my opinion...

I hate how lucky the Bulls are.lol that's at least the second time you've said that as a Miami Heat fan, in the Bulls forum. I guess you're just preparing yourself so that if the Bulls win you can just say it was all because of luck. :p

05-01-2011, 10:02 PM
the bulls are getting the path of least resistence to the ECF but it's well deserved with the 1 seed. the heat and celtics are gonna beat eachother up but thats what they get for not winning enough regular season games. the bulls earned what they got so far. still think they can't beat either boston or miami though but i guess we'll see soon enough.

SportsFanatic10
05-01-2011, 10:04 PM
Wow dude get off Hinrich's balls. He would NOT stop Derrick Rose like you think he will. You're trying to argue with fans who have seen him play for about 7 years. Hinrich is a solid role player, but he will not shutdown anyone.

And the C's don't have Shaq. I guess Miami is lucky too?

you're right about hinrich but miami missing haslem and basically miller as well with 2 thumb braces doesn't count as lucky at all.

You do know Boozer has been playing with a turf toe, right? And not to mention Rose's ankle wasn't 100%. Let's not get into injuries here because the Bulls have had to deal with major injuries all year.

ya good points i was about to post about boozer not being a lucky thing for the bulls either. and i never said you guys can't beat celtics/heat...just that i don't think you can. just an opinon. like the Cs found out today the post season is a whole new ballgame.

Its not luck, its called being rewarded after going all out in the regular season for the #1 seed.

How bout you get off Rose's balls? Never did i say Hinrich will STOP Rose, please tell me when i EVER said that? I simply said he can do a better job than anyone else and now that hes gone, all thats left is trash, paving an easy road for Rose.

And how the hell are we lucky? Haslem would be the key to this series if he was playing. But he isn't, and neither is Miller because his ***** *** hand has been hurting since the beginning of the year.

At this age, expecting anything more from Shaq is dumb. Everyone said how this would happen to them, and it did. Shaq cannot play, and if he does he will play 15> min, and in those 15 min he will be ineffective.

I'm not on anyone's balls. I'm just not the idiot who believes Hinrich will be a difference maker in the series because with or without him the Bulls will win the series.

Don't talk about injuries. We were missing Boozer/Noah (who are better than Haslem/Miller) for most of the year and still had a better record than you guys. Boozer is still playing with a turf toe.

To say Shaq would be ineffective is idiotic. Miami has nothing on the front court to stop even an old Shaq. You're just being a troll now.

Obviously Bulls road got easier with Hinrich falling simply because he plays a lot of minutes and with him out you have to replace him with someone with out as many minutes. With that being said, I don't think it will effect the outcome of the series that much. With him I say the Bulls win in 5. Without him the Bulls win in 4.

Bulls have been lucky quite a bit this year but they have been hit by the injury bug as well so I guess its a wash somewhat.

RZZZA

What do you mean that Bulls have been lucky? I don't get that.

The only way I see us being lucky is that Rose is fortunate enough not to have broken his neck yet with the way he plays.

But Heat fans can say the same thing, they haven't had to deal with long injuries to Wade or Lebron.

Infact lots of fans of lots of teams can say the same thing.

Thats exactly what i mean. See, its not that hard.

I never said Hinrich was DECIDING FACTOR, it just made the matchups A LOT easier for the Bulls. Since youre so sensitive you instantly take it as a troll comment, if you werent you wouldnt blow it out of proportion and say the **** you are saying.

Imo, you look kinda of stupid because i never meant to be a troll you just took it that way like always.

You said you hate how lucky the Bulls are after saying losing Hinrich makes a difference. You're just trying to back track now after you've been exposed as an obvious troll. In fact, if you had said losing Hinrich hurts the Hawks, well that's obvious. But by saying you hate how lucky the Bulls are because they get to face a team that won't have Hinrich is idiotic. Just stop now because you're embarrassing yourself.

You got all of that out of this:



Hinrich can do a better job than anyone else can on the team. Now that you eliminate the ONLY player to do anything productive, they dont stand a chance.

The Bulls are lucky, they dont get to face the Hawks best perimeter defender, a good offensive PG, and force the Hawks to possibly lose their 6th man because they have to start him and give a young Jeff Teague a lot of minutes. How is that not lucky? Its not only Hinrich not playing, its the chain reaction it causes as well.

And you keep calling me a troll when you are the one constantly insulting me.

And im not backtracking, im just telling you i didnt say half the **** you said i said.

Here's the opinion of most Bulls fans:

Hinrich isn't gonna make that much difference to the outcome of this series, Bulls fans aren't worried about the hawks even if he was playing

Bulls fans also think we have to deal with our own injuries as well, so we're not that sympathetic towards the hawks because we do have our own issues. Boozers turf toe, Taj with his foot problems, Rose with turf toe.

It's kind of disrespectful to dismiss the Hawks but Bulls fans pretty much do just that. Bulls fans were hoping that we'd face the Hawks, most every one of us.

Bulls fans also think we have to deal with our own injuries as well, so we're not that sympathetic towards the hawks because we do have our own issues. Boozers turf toe, Taj with his foot problems, Rose with turf toe.

It's kind of disrespectful to dismiss the Hawks but Bulls fans pretty much do just that. Bulls fans were hoping that we'd face the Hawks, most every one of us.

I perfectly understand how the Bulls would have beaten the Hawks regardless. But im saying it makes it A LOT easier for them, idk how thats being a troll tbh.

I think the fact i said the Bulls are lucky is what got everyone crazy lol. Oops

as a hawks fan i try to stay off these boards as I tend not to think rationally due to my homerism. however, i will be honest. I do not think my hawks fair well in this matchup. Hell, I think we will get swept or come close to it, because I don't feel we can defend Rose. This is the point in the postseason where the Hawks always reach and falter. Good enough to win the first round but falter in the 2nd round. Time and time again it has happened. Don't get me wrong, I hope the boys pull through and make a believer out of me, but I'm being a realist here. Bulls in 4.
My only wish is that we play hard and send the league and the bulls a message. If you come into the paint we're sending Zaza/Collins/Horford/JSmith at you - and their going to rip your head off. Rose will probably still dunk on them all - [sigh].

You got all of that out of this:




The Bulls are lucky, they dont get to face the Hawks best perimeter defender, a good offensive PG, and force the Hawks to possibly lose their 6th man because they have to start him and give a young Jeff Teague a lot of minutes. How is that not lucky? Its not only Hinrich not playing, its the chain reaction it causes as well.

And you keep calling me a troll when you are the one constantly insulting me.

And im not backtracking, im just telling you i didnt say half the **** you said i said.

You also said "I hate how lucky the Bulls are." Don't think that will go unnoticed. It changes your message when you say that because the tone of your reasoning changes. You're making injury excuses for the Hawks and saying the Bulls are lucky for that. The Bulls would still beat a healthy Hawks team. You're acting like the Bulls get to catch all the breaks when in reality they deserved to be in this position because they did better than any team in the NBA during the regular season. We weren't calling anyone else lucky when Boozer/Noah were gone for most of the season, so don't expect us to take those comments lightly. Then again, you forget to throw in Boozer is playing injured and Rose's ankle is not fully healed. Not surprised. :facepalm:

but back on topic you guys will breeze through atlanta in my mind and be nice and rested for the ECF so thats a good thing.

They earned the right to be in the position they are in. They beat most of the teams they were suppose to, beat the Heat three times and the Celtics the last two times they played them. That's why when fans are like oh regular season doesn't matter or whatever, but this is why it does. The Bulls are playing 37 and 44 win teams, to go to the ECF. If for some reason the Hawks did beat the Bulls, it would be the biggest upset of the playoffs and since Mavs/Warriors in 07. When you compare the 18 game difference in records(Spurs/Grizzlies was only 15). But that right there shows you how unlikely that probably is.



The Bulls are lucky, they dont get to face the Hawks best perimeter defender, a good offensive PG, and force the Hawks to possibly lose their 6th man because they have to start him and give a young Jeff Teague a lot of minutes.

Lucky or not, it's not a big factor in this series. Lets get real here, Kirk Hinrich isn't going to make a big difference here. Yes he's all those things for the Hawks, but the Bulls were still a much superior team even if he was 100 percent healthy. For example even if Hinrich was healthy, most would still be picking the Bulls in 6 games or less. I don't think the Bulls lost more then 2 games in a row or 4 of 7 all season long, and I doubt the Hawks will be the ones who do that to the Bulls. Especially considering how the Bulls basically dominated them for two and half games in the regular season. IMO getting lucky is the Bulls not having to face Lebron or Wade or the Celtics without one of Garnett, Pierce or Allen. Because those teams not having those guys could have a major effect on that series. Hinrich is just a nice supporting guy, who even if he plays it's not going to change the series out come. With him they might win 1-2 games in this series, and without him they might get swept or only win 1 IMO. Yes anything is possible and the Hawks could shock the world in this series. But from everything we have to go on right now, well that's very unlikely.

I don't know why people think Hinrich is such an X-factor any way.

Hinrich can't guard Rose, I don't know why people think he can.

when the Hawks beat the Bulls during the season, they played good defense and that was because Hinrich did a good job containing Rose. however, next game, we came out and killed them.

I don't think any series is easy in the playoffs, but if the Bulls play well. They shouldn't have too much trouble in this series. Yes I don't expect the Bulls to blow them out every game or for there not to be close games. But I expect the Bulls to come out on top of most of them and this not really being a long series. If you disagree, please tell me why? The Bulls were 18 games better in the regular season, they are a better defensive and rebounding team. They have homecourt advantage, and the MVP of the league. They also blew them out the last two games they played them. It's not that I just think the Bulls are great, I think the Heat and probably Celtics wouldn't have a lot of trouble with them either. So it has more to do with the Hawks not being very good, with over hyped players(AKA Joe Johnson, Jamal Crawford and Josh Smith) who are inconsistent and take a lot of bad shots. Yes it's possible that the Hawks could play over their heads or the Bulls could play really bad. With the Hawks making this a long series or actually winning it. But I think it would be a monster upset at this point and biggest since Mavs/Warriors(record difference backs that up). So give me a reason why this is FAR from a easy series for the Bulls? Your only reason would seem to be overrating the players they have. Instead of the results they got in the regular season this year, or how this team has played in the playoffs against good teams the past few years. This is the third year in a row the Hawks made it to the second round. If they win a game in this series, it will be their first second round win.

Yeah I think Rose just had a bad game the first time, I don't think it was all Hinrich. The whole Bulls team had a bad second half. They lead by 17, coasted and couldn't make any shots to save their life in the second half. I still remember that game, because I fell asleep during half time and woke up stunned to see the Bulls lose. That said I don't think Rose allows the team to lose that game in the playoffs. It would be just like the Pacers series, with Rose going to the basket and getting fouls called. At this point of the season Rose still wasn't getting a lot of calls. But with him likely getting the MVP this week, that's not going to be the case in the playoffs. Also FWIW Rose scored 34 points in 34 minutes in game two vs the Hawks, and 30 points in 29 minutes in game three. Not to mention 24 and 25 when Rose faced Hinrich on the Wizards. So Kirk Hinrich is far from a Rose stopper.

To me EASY means 4-0 maybe 4-1 but all the wins being blowouts (like what the Magic did to the Hawks last year) and I don't see that happening. The Hawks are a competitive team. This is the same team that took the Celtics to seven games a few years ago and now they have more experience and chemistry. The fact that they will be missing Hinrich will hurt them for sure and I think the only match-up advantage the Bulls have is at PG. Yes the Bulls are a great defensive team, but the Hawks are solid so it should be a good series. I wouldn't say Joe Johnson is over-hyped. No he probably hasn't lived up to his contract so far since he had a down year, but he his still capable of doing damaged and he's tough to guard. If the Hawks go with the big starting line-up (Colins, Horford, J. Smith, Johnson, PG (maybe Teague) ) Bogans will have trouble guarding Johnson, he's too big. I don't think anyone over-hypes Jamal Crawford, he is what he is. A spark off the bench that provides scoring and can be clutch down the stretch. Me saying it's going to FAR from easy has nothing to do with me overrating the Hawks players, it has to do with them competing. When you get swept out of the second round two years straight, you tend to have more of a sense of urgency and pride.

ok, so which team are the hawks?? the one that took the celtics to 7 games two years ago, or the ones that got swept in the second round for two years straight?? how you overlook their play since the 7 game series against the celtics is beyond me, but i guess your just trying to see what you want...

and bogans/ brewer did a fine job on jj/crawford throughout the season... i think they both combined for 25 ppg over the 3 games... that's more than acceptable for the bulls...

I think you're just trying to find ways for the hawks to win, rather than what will actually happen in this series... the hawks are who the hawks are... a good team, not a contender as presently constructed...

Cool007
05-02-2011, 12:23 PM
IMO, the Hawks playing style would not work against Bulls' defense. The way they can win is by great ball movement, players hot from 3pt line and make shots when the clock is running out close to zero.

If they go ISO for most of the game, it would be a long night for Hawks. If I am LD, I would let Horford post up down low and keep him there every other possession. Once he gets going, it would open up for perimeter players.

The other way they can win is if JJ and Crawford are HOT from outside.

If Bulls play their normal games - and not suck or shoot below 40%, then I don't see how Hawks can win vs Bulls. I just don't see it no matter how much I try not be a Homer.

Hawks would have been better off facing Celtics than the Bulls IMO.

The general consensus is that the match ups favor the Bulls. This is why I think game 1 becomes really important. If the bulls get an easy win I think it sets the tone for the rest of the series and people will be right about the matchup advantage for the Bulls. If they struggle like they did vs indy then it's a different story and we may be in for a series. As a bulls fan I think game 1 becomes very important. They need to get a convincing win.

and bulls fans. better hope Booz shows up. I think he may have trouble vs Horford
and dont be shocked if he sucks again. he always sucks vs big guys. sure his playoff numbers look good, but vs Pau and Odom he always sucked. maybe horford and josh smith can give him trouble

i think bulls win in 6

Hinrich was never able to stop Rose or even slow him down anyway whether when he was guarding him during Practice or in Wizards uniform or in Hawks uniform.

I don't think any 1 player can guard Rose. Teams would have to double/triple him and get the ball out of his hand. That is the only thing that works.

We will see what Hawks do tonight.

What do you expect from a Humble guy. Rose loves challenges and he simply killed Hinrich in the final 2 games vs Hawks with Hinrich guarding him.

We Bulls fans know Hinrich very well. We continually told everyone when everone were really overrating him for his defense but he is very good vs taller guys and some non-athletic PGs but the PGs that gave him trouble every time were the ones that were super quick ones.

Hinrich doesn't have a foot speed to guard those type of PGs. Rose is probably the best quickets PGs you will find today. That's why Hinrich just can't guard him.

You'll never see why you make such troll posts. It's like you have a credible post until the end of it. No, Hinrich out does not make it ridiculously easier for the Bulls to win. No, the Bulls are not lucky they played the best basketball in the regular season. The Bulls earned the right to play weaker teams on their route to a championship. If Miami was the #1 seed, you would not be spewing any of the crap you are spewing right now. Just because Hinrich used to guard Rose does NOT mean the Bulls are lucky they don't have to play him. Rose torched Hinrich in the last two meetings in the regular season to the point where Hinrich could not do anything. You make Hinrich's presence seem like Dwight Howard on defense. I'm done with your troll-like baiting posts. It's obvious you are still bitter about the sweep.

Hopefully the Bulls don't come out too rusty after having 6 days off and Hawks only 4 days off. I think that had a big effect on the Celtics/Heat game yesterday. Since the Celtics had a week off, while the Heat only had 4 days off. The results actually show that as well the Heat outscored the Celtics in the first half 51-36, while the Celtics outscored the Heat in the second half 54-48. So hopefully the Bulls don't struggle in the first half tonight, like the Celtics did yesterday. Other wise the Hawks could potentially steal this game, but that said, I still like the Bulls chances.

I guess I just don't really care what other people think :shrug:. I'm not going to lose sleep if the rest of the PSD world thinks less of the Bulls championship because they got "lucky". Everyone needs luck to win a championship.
