Bulls definitely gotta bring the intensity early, can't fall behind on the road in the playoffs. i think if we can get out to a good start, and frustrate atlanta offensively we can force em into 1v1 basketball and make em put up bad shots. i expect the hawks to come out with alotta intensity too though, their playing at home and with alotta confidence. gonna be a good one though, thats for sure.

This is a important game to win here, the Hawks have been tied or lead a series this whole post season. So if the Bulls can take a series lead on them, they might start to lose confidence. The Bulls need to play quality defense and can't be giving up 95-100 points to this team that's for sure. IMO the Bulls are going to have at least one game in this series, where they shoot really well and win pretty comfortable. Similar to what the Magic did to the Hawks in game 5 and the Bulls did to the Pacers in game 5. But the key to this series is gonna be which team wins those close games lower scoring games. The Hawks won three games against the Magic 88-84, 88-85 and 84-81 in round one. While the Bulls won two games vs the Pacers 96-90 and 88-84 in round one. If the Bulls are able to win a few close games, I think they will win this series. But if the Hawks are able to beat the Bulls in those close games, they could easily steal this series. So the winner of this series could come down to who's more clutch late and what defense gets the most stops late in the games. The Hawks were better then the Magic in those spots in round one and the Bulls were better then the Pacers in those spots in round one. Which ever team is better in those spots in round two is going to win this series.

The Bulls should win this game, but they have to focused and composed to do it. The Hawks HCA has actually been pretty good in these playoffs.

well if those shots start falling it could be a long night for ATL theres no way he'll shoot poorly all series.

well if those shots start falling it could be a long night for ATL theres no way he'll shoot poorly all series.

True, but the more he attacks the basket to force the issue the more effective he'll be. Even if he doesn't get a shot, driving collapses the defense so people get open.

Rose looks like a different player. he doesnt look as fast as he used to in game 2. im sure his ankle is ok, but i bet his mind is still worried about tweeking it again and isnt letting him drive to the hoop.

As long as we stop Crawford and Johnson from shooting lights out, Bulls in 5-6 even if the offense keeps playing like games 1 and 2.

Ok and what if Horford gets going like the 1st game in the regular season? Crawford is usually lights out at home hopefully Joe will be too. There was also an article in the AJC about Josh Smith taking pereimeter shots and Larry Drew getting pissed at him...if he stops taking them that could be bad news for the Bulls. :D

No, there offense is only pretty average though. But they are also probably better then the season totals as well. Considering that half of the games either Boozer or Noah wasn't in the line-up. So that good another scorer and 50 percent shooter away from the team.

I'm real worried about Boozer...not necessarily for this series but with him playing on an injured foot and playing like a shell of his former self, how optimistic are our prospects for beating the Heat and/or winning against whoever the western conference champion would be?

05-06-2011, 12:52 PM
the ONLY thing that Chicago did better that last game was the hustle. hustle led to more rebounds and more opportunities. they won it with pure heart.

if Atlanta can learn to box out and hustle for lose balls - they got this.

hahaha, yeah.

and if Boozer learns to play defense and Bogans learns to handle the ball and Rose finds his 3pt shot again....

see where i'm going with this?

not much to learn but to do. Boozer and Bogans can't do any of that while the Hawks can box out and can hustle.

you don't think hawks outhustle the Bulls, they would win tonight? but of course the Hawks would need to stop hoisting up horrible shot after shot.

i think this is gonna be a close one. if Boozer is not playing tonight, giving this to the Hawks.

ok but we're the best rebounding team in the NBA...so to just say that someone else is gonna out rebound us is very unlikely if we're on top of our game...which I'm sure we will be after having lost once already.

what youre suggesting is out of character for the Hawks team and it would be out of character for us to be lackadaisical on defense and on the boards

Will the keys to tonight's game be the same as they were for Wednesday's?


Rose's job, to use Wilkins' word, wasn't to shoot a high percentage, it wasn't to be on the good side of plus-minus, it wasn't to play up to his regular-season form or justify winning the MVP vote. Rose's job Wednesday night was to even the series with Atlanta, by any means necessary, even if it meant putting up some errant shots to give his superior rebounders put-back attempts.

very true indeed. i guess game 1 was a blip for the Hawks then lol

but all these stats are should not be highly regarded when it comes to playoff basketball. everything changes. bulls are a bigger team. the only person doing anything down in the paint is Horford and he's only 6-9.

Should be a close game plus we have played great at Atlanta all year so this game should be no different, if Rose comes out attacking right away and we actually start off on offense ok we should win.

No need for name-calling. I was just stating that Derrick Rose has 1 League MVP award. No one on the Detroit Pistons have ever won it.

I've seen the Pistons win championships in the 80's 90's and 2000's. Who cares about MVP's? :eyebrow:

Itsripcity is beyond annoying now though lol

He's played 3 career playoff series coming into this. I wouldn't expect complete consistency. He's only 22. Don't you worry, he'll be consistently atop the Central division for 10 years at least, and near the top of the NBA as well.

amen!
