The defense isn't great and the whole play in general is kind of sloppy. They are stars but not a team.

1) Jimmy Butler will make a difference.
2) Rose being out is irrelevant. Hinrich/Brooks were big time while Rose was out.. This wouldn't be the case if Hinrich/Brooks were playing God awful.


From what I saw, Cavs played much better. LeBron was being too aggressive IMO. Probably tried to prove a point but he should have gotten his teammates better shots. Cavs are going to be really dangerous when they get their chemistry in check. Also, Dion Waiters should be traded. This guy does not belong on this team when you think of what the Cavs are. Waiters is offensive minded and Cavs are already loaded with a set amount of FGA per game. Should trade him for a defensive minded wing tbh. George Hill would fit perfect on this team. Plays smart, good defense, and doesn't have locker room problems.

Bulls fans are so fickle. Before the game they were talking like this version of the Bulls was the best ever, after the loss and realization that 82-0 was no longer a reality.....Gibson sucks, Rose is fragile, Thibs substitutions are awful, and Gasol is pouting.
Geez, it's the second game. Every win is because the Bulls are great, every other teams win is the Bulls "gave it to them"
Cav's have a great squad. Tip your hat to them and move on.

He started with two miss lay ups, and it wasn't pretty from that point on.


He didn't try to use any craftiness, he really didn't force anything either; he just had no lift and didn't look like he was on his game from the start.

He should of tried to get to the foul line, maybe that would have helped him out tonight.

3-2 imo. But they could beat SAS and be 4-1 so we'll see.

Easy win vs Blazers, Clippers have looked AWFUL this season barely beating s**ty teams so GSW will destroy them, Rockets may win because GSW will go into the game cocky after winning streak, easy win vs Suns and loss to the Spurs.

3-2 imo. But they could beat SAS and be 4-1 so we'll see.

Not sure what would be "easy" about the Blazers, Suns and Clippers. All are very solid to very good teams.

na, the only reason why the raps are still 'in the game' is because they are going inside.

Miami offense is flowing 59%

We ned to keep Toronto in front of us, so maybe the refs can stop trying to keep them in the game.

Also, Miami should attack the rim more too, so we can get to the line also.

alright. 10 points. Maybe the Raps need to go small ball for a bit because Raps getting killed by Miami's ball movement.

Blazers could be a close game. Clippers haven't looked very good this season, even their wins have been ugly against bad teams. Suns are gonna get killed by Bogut for like 30 rebound game by him.
