Boston is due for a loss! Why not now? Why not us? Ok there are tons reasons why it wont be us, but you never know. Boston may totally take us for granted. They may all get wasted Thursday night whatever. Its not that we are outmatched or anything against them. Deng and Pierce have been a good matchup over the years. The backcourt will basically cancel each other out. That just leaves KG. KG normally feasts on us but he may have tired legs. The major difference is defense and that's why they have only lost 2 games.
This is a trap game for Boston...they just had an emotional win over Atlanta the other night and will be returning home tonight to face an "easy" opponent... Their stupid streak ends tonight. Bulls by double digits. I would be especially ecstatic if KG gets thrown out for taunting...
I think we will struggle to hit 80 points in this game.
Possible playoff matchup. Let the demolition begin. Bulls lose by 40 - you heard it here first
After getting blown out last time we played them I think we can upset them this time. They won't take us seriously and that is how we win.
Ugly it will be. And prevail we shall not. But, booze will be had.
Boston seems to take everyone seriously every night. I haven't seen this type of night in and night out competitiveness since the Dynasty. Even if they only take us half seriously, we match up miserably against them. We would lose on that alone. We could play this team 50 times, and I wouldn't put it past the C's to take all 50.
I suggest Paxson make a trade before this game so we have an excuse prior to this execution. Loosing when you suit up 8 guys provides some false hope. I expect to see a lot of Scalabrine Look at their schedule - if the Celtics survive the X-mas showdown/2009 Finals preview with LA - the only thing that stands between them and a legit shot at the 33 game win streak is Lebron...
Number 5, you gotta put him on the floor or you don't come home! You can sleep in the locker room tonight. Put 'em Down Noah! Put 'em Down!
I'm not gonna lie..I think we're lose . Seriously , all jokes aside I don't even know if I'm gonna watch it . I'm a die hard bulls fan but it's only so much you can take .
If KG taunts rose, hes a dead man. He has a thing for PGs (calderon, bayless)
If Peirce and KG start jawing at our guys we need to tell Noc to send one of the two to the emergency room. I am tired of those two mouthing off and showboating.
Who cares about the game itself… personally I can’t wait for the 700 posts quibbling about whether Rose has hit the rookie wall or not.
I'm trying to decide if it would be better to watch this game sober or drunk...
Everythings better drunk. Even your wife <3
Bulls- 111 Celtics- 80 Rose has a 30-15-10 night, Pierce fakes another injury in embarrassment.
Boston's mental toughness, their consistent hunger and aggression is flat out awesome.
Rajon Rondo rebounds over Gooden...
Moses Malone, I mean Kendrick Perkins again on the offensive boards.
Tommy Heinsohn is going to drive me to the bottle..
It is really sad how far away the Bulls are from even being competitive with the Celtics. Especially since it was just 2-3 years ago that the Bulls beat Boston fairly regularly...
Are you kidding? Every team beat Boston regularly 2-3 years ago.
Rondo has SIX assists already. The Celtics are getting easy shot after easy shot. I really hate rajon rondo.
A Tommy point for KG? Perhaps that should go to Larry Hughes for throwing a cross court CHEST pass against a line of defense..
Our first team can beat the Celtics bench.
Is it just me or is Rondo a show-off?
Kevin Garnett is an idiot...smashing his head into the base of the hoop. What does that show? Toughness? Looks like a dumbass to me.
Boston's defense is insane. How can anyone hate on a team that plays defense like that every night? That's championship basketball right there.
Even the bench players for Cs get calls
Remember the Big Baby hype? Now Leon Powe, that guy is solid.
Man they get whatever calls they want. KG looks at a ref and the whistle blows immediately.
Rondo with the clean pick of Rose.
That's why Rondo is so loved in Boston. He's got great hands.
Well.. Letting Kendrick Perkins score 17 pts inside on 8-10 shooting is something I'd complain about a little. But then again, rather him getting hot than KG..
We seem to be leaving Ray Allen open an awful lot. If he isn't draining the J', then he's driving and feeding Perkins who has absolutely killed us with wide open layups.
Boston hasn't even gone out West yet. That record isn't gonna last.
Rondo just snuck up behind Gray and swiped that from him. He is such a good defensive player. I hope some day soon Rose can be a smilar type defender, because Rondo is a game changer/tempo changer on that end of the floor.
Wow, KG helped Rose off the ground. I wasn't expecting that.
So unselfish. Boston is a freaking juggernaut. Wow.
I don't get how half the NBA doesn't notice Allen when he sprints to the corners to hit threes.
Has Tommy Heinsohn EVER thought a Celtics player has committed a foul?
Whats Garnett cryin about? Noah even breaths on him and its a foul
Rhondo's a knat...wow. He is the glue for the Celtics.
KG taunted Deng. Kill him.
I'm really getting tired of seeing the Celtics getting open shot after open shot. Can someone at least PRETEND to play some defense?
You know you're playing like crap when Scalabrine is blocking you. Scal: "NOT IN MY HOUSE"
Wow. The C's are phenomenal.
You know your organization sucks when Brian Scalabrine is having a career night against you. Did Brian Scalibrine really just make a hook shot on our defense?
I want to hire Tom Thibodeau....
The Celtics horrendous bench is better than our bench.
Good: Boston. Really, really, really good. Let's fast forward to the Eastern Conference Finals already. Cavs/Celtics.
Celtics are scary good when their starters are on their floor. Their bench? Meh...
Can't place too much blame on the Bulls here. Kendrick Perkin is a Hall of Famer.
It kills me that we might have been able to make a play for Thibodeau as our head coach, and played great defense, or D'Antoni (if Reinsdorf hadn't pissed off the prima donna) and played great offense. We got the bargain-basement first-timer and we're playing neither.
Thibodeau is so sick he makes doc rivers look like a hall of fame coach when we all know he's a tool. I would've taken thib over pretty much anyone not named Phil Jackson, Jerry sloan, or Greg popovich in a heartbreat.
