Hell no. Far too inexperienced to come back against a team with leaders who have this much playoff experience. Not to mention they're flat out being outplayed by better players, if not quite a better team.

Maybe win game 5 at home but that seems too kind at this point. The Bulls aren't that far off and they had a real good season this year. They are only gonna go up from here on out.

I think they have the ability. All the games were close. The Bulls have no pressure now. Just play basketball and see what happens. If they get it to a game 7 all bets are off. Just my opinion.

Bulls have played with a hell of a lot of energy. They are tough to beat. This has been (and will continue to be) one of the most competitive series thus far. I must congratulate them on the effort even though I can't stand very many of their players and fans.

All that said, this isn't done yet. Let's get another W Thursday night and send the Bulls off to sleep with the (cat)fishes!

That's what I'm saying. Miami has to play hard too and not slack because the Bulls bring it every possession. I think when you do that you have a chance. I gotta give it to to Heat though they've impressed me with their hustle. They really want it bad, but they can't get lackadaisical because it could potentially bite them in the ***. Good game though and hopefully we get to see some more basketball. :clap:

And that's the approach they're gonna have to take. Miami absoutleyy has to close it out in game 6 if they get there. Not saying the Heat can't win a game 7 in Chicago but it would be really though.

You guys got young players which = a lot of years being relevant.

No one will shut out dirk but haslem has played him well, even in a prior finals. Dirk is going to get his regardless. I am more worried about Miami being able to handle Terry. Miami rotates well and closes out faster than any team. Dallas on the other hand can't stop a nosebleed defensively

CeltsOwnKnicks
05-25-2011, 02:04 AM
All I know is he couldn't guard KG in last years playoffs. And Dirk is a far better offensive threat than KG is. Having a major role against Boozer or Noah is a lot different than trying to guard Dirk.

our defense was a problem, but that was because of quentin richardson, micheal beasley, and at times J.O. ... also the lack of skill arroyo had...

Remember it was Haslem defense on Nowitzki during that o6 finals.

Granted. Dirk is playing Re-Dirkulous............BUT Haslem will be the answer for him. Yes he gives up height to Dirk but he knows where Dirk likes to go. When you know another players tendencies and are able to get to his spot before he does, you win the matchup 8 out of 10 times. He will not shut Dirk down. No one can. He will just mak life uncomfortable for him.

During the '06 Finals Dirk was vey efficient against us the first 2 games. Once Haslem studied tape and learned his tedencies, he was able to make his shots more difficult.

this series is over. game 4 was a must win for the Bulls. Rose had a chance to win the game after the offensive foul by Lebron, and he settled for a jumpshot, which was especially irritating because he settled for a jumpshot in the posession right before it and was unable to hit either shot. i could see us getting the next one at home, but beating any team 3 games in a row is hard to do.

It's not impossible, but unless a much better version of tonight's Bulls takes the court for Games 5 and 6, then no. Rose has a lot of tape to watch over the summer. He's the superstar and this series (win or lose) really does fall on his shoulders. He just hasn't played very well. In Games 2 and 3, Miami's defense was fantastic. It wasn't as good tonight and Rose was just making careless mistakes and taking too many bad shots.

Yea tell that to Collison...because he's knows all of Dirks tendencies and the spots he likes on the floor as well...

Your saying if a defender knows Dirks tendencies they will win the matchup 80% of the time??..uhh no..this is Dirk we're talking about here...not a role player he's probably the toughest matchup in nba history...

Haslem played him well in 06' but that was 5 years ago...I'm sure he and Anthony will defend him well and make him work...but that doesn't mean Dirk won't explode on them...

Mathematically Yes, Realistically no.
They have to win the next game (and your supposed to win home games). Then steal 1 in Miami (after going 0-2) earlier in the week. And then close out at home - do they have pride and personnel to get it done. Not this year.

Wrigheyes4MVP

I will answer two questions in this thread.

Does Chicago stand a chance?

No, Chicago is finished. They do not stand a chance because they just don't have enough offense to beat this Miami team.

The second question I will answer was brought up by someone in this thread regarding a Heat-Mavs finals rematch.

Does Miami have anyone who can guard Dirk?

The answer is no and it is certainly not Udonis Haslem. 5 years ago, Dirk could be defended by smaller defenders, but Dirk has changed his offensive prowess since then. As evidence by these playoffs, you absolutely cannot use a smaller defender to guard Dirk Nowitzki. Haslem is a mere 6 feet 8 inches tall. Dirk will destroy him in the post and simply shoot over him at will.

Haslem might have been able to contain Dirk 5 years ago, but the new Dirk Nowitzki will take advantage of the size mismatch. They are probably better off using Bosh to defend him, although I have a hard time seeing that working out.

Sergio1984
05-25-2011, 06:13 AM
I think we win game 5 and we lost game 6. Either way it doesn't matter anymore. We had to steal one in Miami and I doubt we can take 3 in a row from them at the rate they are playing. I'd be really damn surprised if they take it to 7.

Wrigheyes4MVP
05-25-2011, 06:18 AM
Haslem won't be able to defend Dirk any better than Collison is...

The way Dirk is playing right now he's going to destroy any defender you put in front of him...

So, basically you are saying that Dirk must be doubled or he will take over.

Thats tough to do with all those shooters that Dallas has. And they pass the ball really well.

On the other hand, I guess another question that we must ask is...Can Dallas do anything to stop Lebron?

Marion can't stop him one on one, and you can't double him like they have doubled Durant because you got Wade and Bosh who can kill you.

daleja424
05-25-2011, 07:15 AM
Yes. Bulls are a very dangerous team. Any team that can play that kind of defense will always have a chance to win games. The series is not over until a team has 4 wins. Right now Miami only has 3 wins... so the series is still alive and kicking.

This was an emotionally draining game for both teams, so expect game 5 to be UGLY... but it could go either way. First one to 85 wins.

NO They are done, if they wanted to go to the Finals they would of went out and found a good reliable shooting guard @ the deadline..Korver crumbled..Brewer and the other guy can't do shh8.. Don't the bulls have Rasual Butler?! Where has he been hurt? I remember the guy could shoot..

btw why not have LeBron guard Dirk? I think he could do it.. If this Finals happens. Id have to painfully go for Dallas just so Marion and Kidd get rings i suppose.

Can anyone on the mavs guard wade. I think it will be a good match up. But Chicago you are though time to raise the white flags.

Dirk WILL explode on us. Dare i say explode on us more than once. But you are missing the point. Yes, Haslem IS five years older. But he IS also alot fresher than Dirk. Dirk is not weak BUT he has gone through an entire season PLUS 12+ games of playoffs. Fatigue will eventually catch up to him. Besides, this Heat team does not guard one on one. Its a TEAM defense. Ask D-Rose how many defenders have guarded him on just ONE poessesion.

Of course it's possible, but it isn't likely. Last night was thier must win game. Anything can happen but they really **** the bed last night, I doub tthey can overcome it. Having said that Miami has won three straight games and after seeing game 1 who would have thought Miami was capable of winning three straight games (not very many if any). Game 5 still has to be played, and if the Bulls can win and then Survive a game 6 on the road (not likely but if) then who says they can't win a game 7 at home? Not gonna bet, but yes it is possible.

Thank you! Oh my god, that feeds right into Miami's offense. Chicago misses so many 3's that it starts the break for Miami. The Bulls shoot themselves out of the game when they marry that 3 point line.

Easy? After game 1 against the Bulls people on here were talking about a sweep lol. They aren't dominating the Bulls at all. The Bulls have shot horrible and that's why the Heat have beaten them the past couple of games. They still have to beat them one more time and then beat the Thunder or Mavs. Everyone's crowned them champs since "the decision" but there is still a lot of basketball left to play.

No its over. The D. Rose version of the Bulls is the same as the Lebron James version of the Cavs. Great team defense and And the MVP. Just like the Cavs facing the big three in Boston the Bulls are facing the Big three in Miami. One guy can only get you so far. Unless Rose gets some real help they will have the same results.

As far as Dallas and Dirk.....No one will stop Dirk, great players get theirs, Miami has the team Defense to stop the other guys and With The Big three they have the fire power to outscore Dirk. They will play team Defense and bet that Dirk cannot beat the James/Wade scoring Duo

The minority of people who were talking about the Heat getting swept were just overcome by the emotion of one game of the series. This series has been a dogfight for the most part, except for the last few minutes of each game...When dare I say, the true MVP stepped up and helped his team to gut out the W's and take control of this series. While Rose on the other hand has disappeared in late game situations in this series. Granted, I give him a slight benefit of the doubt, due to his youth and inexperience on this stage. However he did win the leagues MVP, and If he's going to get all the praise and be crowned by the vast majority of Bulls fans as THE best player in the NBA, then he certainly deserves some of the blame here. He needs help, he can't do all alone...

You say the Heat have beaten the Bulls because the Bulls shot horribly for three straight playoff games in a row? Maybe that has something to do with the elite level of defense the Heat has played over the course of the last three games. One game, sure, two maybe, but three losses in a row can't be attributed to the Bulls "Lack of...", unless your going to suck it up, and give the Miami Heat some credit for outplaying Chicago. Let's stop with the excuses.

I fully expect another dogfight tomorrow night in game 5, as this Chicago team has a lot of pride and fight in them. I wouldn't be surprised to see them win at home, but I would indeed, fully expect the Heat to close out the series in Miami in game 6.

We can definitely get this to a Game 7... we've proved we can win Miami, but we can't close out the fourth quarter. We were one shot away from winning the game yesterday, and we all would be talking something different instead of the Bulls failures. Remember... we have TWO possible home games and Miami only has ONE... and I know, in my opinion, we can win in Miami if we force a Game 6. That's just my gut though as I really have no evidence to back it up, haha.

So besides Game 3, where we actually didn't shoot enough three's, we've lost each game. We need to hit our three's as it opens up the lanes for Rose to drive and then the Heat players have to respect the Bulls shooters if their hitting their three's. Right now, the Heat don't respect the Bulls shooters as their confident they won't hit their shots right now.

I think they have a better chance then most teams. They can definitely win one game at home in game 5 (60% chance imo). Then they could try and steal win in Miami with the pressure on the Heat (50% chance imo). Then at home again in Game 7 it could go either way (60 chance imo). So overall (6/10) * (5/10) * (6/10) = 9/50. So in conclusion, the Bulls in my opinion have an 18% chance to win this series. :D

This series has really showed how much Chicago needs another offensive weapon at the 2 spot, without losing the D that Bogans provides. Who are the FAs this year I haven't been paying as much attention as I have in years past. IF Detroit buys out Rip Hamilton, he would be a great fit in Chicago running off screens and getting open but I wouldn't trade anything for him with that awful contract he has.

I still think we have a shot, the odds are not looking very good right now but IF we win game 5 at home even though the Heat are up 3-2 the pressure is on them again because we have shown we can compete in Miami and they don't want this going to a game 7 because that would just be a coin flip.

I'd have to agree at least 6 of the missed 3's were uncontested, many of the other misses were pull up shots on the break with little defensive pressure, and when Chicago has missed these shots it has given the fast break opportuinities to Miami. Somehow though Chicago had more fast break points last night. Miami however had like 38 FT attemtps! Tough to win if the other team is getting to the line that often.

Well then, from your arguments on why Chicago has lost, one could infer that Chicago just isn't as good as they were made out to be. Like I said, three games in a row is a stretch to blame on "Off nights" Perhaps, they just need some better players? Players who can hit those big game shots. I just can't believe that even now, after being down 3 games to 1 that Bulls fans still can't accept that maybe Miami has just been the better of the two teams during this series. One more Miami win, and it'll be a shut case. Though I'll fully expect to hear a mountain size load of excuses such as this or the classic..."Refs" and the "League is fixed".

Not once have I ever said the league is fixed or it's all the refs fault so please don't lump me in with anyone who did. Chicago is as good as they're made out to be. The bottom line is they just haven't played as well as they should have missing a ton of shots. That's it in a nut shell. Call it excuses, but the stats don't lie.

It's fine that people think that the refs favor the Heat, as I've heard that all year, but to use it as an EXCUSE for these games gets irritating and I'm a Bulls fan. Like I said, it's fine if you can make a good case, but I really haven't heard any Bulls fan make a good case, yet. The Heat outplayed the Bulls in Game 3, Rose was the main reason we lost last night. I'll admit... the ticky-tack fouls in Game 2 to begin the second quarter may of changed the series as we were on the verge to blow them out, but those fouls completely ruined the momentum we have. I'll admit that, no doubt.

lmao yeah you hit more threes one more to be exact.but attempted 11 more that was a pathetic display of 3 point shooting last night.

also if the game was rigged can you tell me why the refs would call an offensive foul on lebron to give them the ball with 8 ticks left?

makes no sense since lebron gets away with that kind of stuff a lot in his career. perfect opportunity for them to get the win right there

you outscored them in the paint off of offensive rebounds and the fact nothing from the outside was falling.

you are so completely blinded by the this whole conspiracy thing that you will not let yourself believe the heat are better no matter what.

this coming from a raptors fan who hates rupaul with all his heart the heat are simply better

re watch the 06 finals and tell me if theres a player from the mavs thats playin 10x better this year like he is out of this worl

Hint: his name rhymes with tulowitski

re-watch the 06 finals and tell me if you see a player on the HEAT roster that has a legitimate claim to being the best player on the planet. Don't see him? That's because he's not there.

Hint: no need to play this rhyming ****. You damn well know who I'm talking about.

Can you tell me why the Heat shot almost twice as many ft's as us despite being outscored in the paint by almost twice as much? I'll answer your question with another question, since rhetorical questions seem to be all the rage right now.

rig is such an ugly word...I prefer favor

That being said, we had our chances to win and blew it. Heat outplayed us and their defense has really impressed me. thats as much credit as I'm gonna give the heat and that should be enough.

better team? I refuse to call them that

I'll say yes because they have home court, but I think Miami is going to finish it in 6.

refs havnt hendered the bulls to the point that I expected, I would like to see rose get some more calls, but you cant expect it on their court. fact is, Bulls have had very bad offensive exicutioln. we have had the heat right where we want them every game till the 4th, every game we where ahead or in it. our lack of late game exicution has killed us.

it's true, too young,too inexperienced.

and because you couldn't hit anything from the outside so most of your points were uncontested dunks and put backs offensive boards and floaters in the lane the reason why you attempted more FG's than them. and you got 26 points of turnovers 11 more than them. also


Solid post.

mavericks on the other hand.would mop you guys.

execution has nothing to do with the type of fouls called against you or in your favor

Bulls outscored the heat almost 2-1 in the paint yesterday but somehow the heat had almost twice as many fta's.

riddle me this, debunk me that. Star players get star calls and the entire heat team is benefiting from that

If you get smacked and fouled in the paint while driving to the basket, you're not going to have as many "points in the paint" as the players who drive but don't get fouled.

Riddle resolved.
