I´m calling for a blowout, because big baby won´t be looking like an elite PF the whole series.
Time for the real Kendrick Perkins and Big Baby Davis to stand up. Gordon and Rose have good, not great games, but a well-balanced effort will give the Bulls a 2-1 series lead on Thursday night. Book it.
I'm impressed by this team, they have done this despite the refs best efforts in 2 games now
I'd like to see Benny the Bull ride a bike into Perkins during a timeout
Provided the refs give Chicago the calls like they gave Boston the calls in the Garden, we should win.
The more we can stretch this series out the better. Boston is still a better team but they are short handed and I'm hoping we can wear them down, especially if the games follow suit of the 1st and the 2nd one which went down the wire.
But our bench is far superior to theirs. Their best bench player is already in their starting lineup and the next best guy is injured and out. We have to run their bigs into the ground! But we have two starting caliber players in Hinrich and Miller and Thomas
Bulls blow out. They barely beat us in their place and in our place we should blow them out.
Another thing I didn't like about the game was Rondo's BS injury. The Celtics did this last year with Pierce. I just hope the bulls win this series so bad to shut up Perkins and did anyone else catch Garnett talking smack to the bulls after the win?
There's no way Boston will win this series. They are the walking wounded. What they have left is the Celtics of 07. The last place C's.
Stop Big Baby and Kendrick and we'll win convincingly.
Too many people are expecting the Bulls to roll over Boston tomorrow. I was talking to some people at work who don't even pay attention to basketball but are all caught up in this series and think Chicago will win easily. I'm like, wuh?
My first key to this game is SPEED - RUN RUN RUN those damn Celtics until they drop. Get those fatties moving up and downcourt. My second key is to limit POTTB's. Those would be Points Off Tyrus Thomas Blocks
Pierce has to have the ugliest facial hair in the league.
Stern is there. That's not good. Only the big 4 get to win when he is there. He can remind the refs of 'his plan' in person.
Pierce is such a whiner... He has never ever committed a foul
Both Noah and TT playing like retards so far
Looks like Vinny is at it again. What was the game plan going into tonight. Don't play defense and then jack up threes? When is Rose going to start penetrating? I thought Rondo was the one with the bad ankle. The crowd looks dead already, this is not good.
Bulls crowd sucks. Even that Thomas dunk didn't get the kind of reaction it would have in Atlanta or Boston.
I'm SOO Sick of Rajon Rondo..
Every second that Scal is on the floor, we should destroy them.
I knew Rondo was good, but dear lord he looks like the best PG in the league in this series.
Flagrant? Don't know about that We got a call there.
Wow **** Rondo I hate his guts. Hopefully someone can put him hard to the ground.
Rondo with 5 rebounds. This guy is going to set multiple career highs against us.
Hinrich and Miller are supposed to be starter level players, but we can't make up ground when they come in against Mikki Moore and Marbury??
Maybe all the games should be played in Boston we seem to play better there than we do at home .
Fat Baby Davis has 3 steals....
Rajon Rondo is proving that he, not Rose, is the best PG in this series.
Haven't we figured out that Rondo can shoot yet?
This is truly terrible. Well, at least Big Baby is out so we can at least have the ball stolen by a guard or something.
Miller is only 32?? He plays like he is 40
This is a recording...STOP LEAVING RONDO WIDE OPEN!!!! He is MAKING HIS JUMP SHOTS!!!'
It's time to do a Tanya Harding on Rondo. BLAM! WHY?! WHY?!
Don't bother to put a hand up on Rondo. This kid is not as good as we make him look
It's like the Pillsbury Dough boy at a Masons convention. Turnovers and Bricks.
Foul trouble may be our only saving grace
You want to know what's REALLY bad? I'm watching this with Tommy Heinsohn.
Evidently Rondo is going to play every second of the game which I would to if I were him, are we even playing defense on him? Cuz if so I haven't seen it in this series. Looks to me like he gets no pressure at all. How bout double teaming him like they do Rose? Is it that hard?
Where'd Rondo foul there?
Can't say the refs are screwing us tonite. We are doing it to ourselves.
Rondo can shoot, GUARD HIM
LMAO @ Paul Pierces quote. He's not even a superstar in this league and clearly not even on the same planet as DWade, Kobe and Lebron.
Rondo's going to average a triple double this series.
BOS isn't playing any better than they have been. We are the ones losing this, and can come back in the second half.
Tommy Heinsohn couldn't tell if that was a foul on Rose. FYI.
Miller is only slightly better than worthless.
Rajon Rondo all by himself >>> all 13 Bulls players tonight
Three on Rondo. They have STEPHON MARBURY in the game. MARBURY. Let's do this.
Thank God Rondo is out. He's just been amazing all series.
Rondo has 7 boards. That's as many as Noah. Not acceptable.
This is all Vinny's master plan, get all the Celtics in foul trouble then win in the 2nd half.
We can get this to 6 by the end of the half.
It looks like the Celtics took the Bulls lightly in game 1 but now, they are all business.
Why don't they show or talk about our injured superstar, Luol Deng, like they do about Garnett?
Um, because they know that Deng isn't a star...let alone a superstar?
Jackie Moon just entered for Boston.
Seriously. They've got Scal and Marbury out there.
Lol Marbs for three. Not our night.
Watch how Gordon's being defended. Then watch how any Celtic is being defended. The problem isn't any individual defender. The problem is there's no team defense. It's non-existent.
So far in the series we've made Rajon Rondo look like Chris Paul, Big Baby Davis look like Kevin Garnett in his prime and Perkins look like Tim Duncan.
Pierce really came out and set the tone. That's what a captain does. Walking the walk. Nothing but props for Boston. Rondo is just detroying us.
Even though I hate Lebron James it'll be nice to watch him destroy Boston in a 7 game series, It'll be an easy sweep. Hopefully Bron dunks on that POS.
Big Baby is almost on pace for a triple double...with steals.
Rondo is the reason were getting crushed. He has our entire defense on their heels and the Bulls need to deny him the ball immediately. The defense needs to be designed to keep the ball out of his hands. Rose just sags off and lets him do whatever he wants too.
Not even Duncan could outrun our guards for a break away dunk. Big baby is in a class of his own.
Bulls lost the series in game 2, when they choked away the lead. Now Boston is back to being the real Celtics team.
The Celtics are going to win this series now. This was the opportunity for the Bulls to step up and take control of the series -- and they blew it. Even if they somehow regroup for Game 4, Boston will win the series. Because Chicago isn't winning another game in Boston -- the Celtics are focused and angry now.
No one on our team can stop Rondo. He's been killing us even with Rose off the floor.
Big Baby beats our team down the floor.
Bulls getting beat by a team who's powerforward looks like this?
Perkins was right about the Bulls. They basically just got lucky the first game.
How much of this is Rondo being this good or Rose's defense being that bad?
I'd say 65% Rondo beign terrific, 35% Rose refusing to even attempt to play defense
Come on, playoff intensity ain't hard fouls. It's execution. Cut it out, Tyrus.
How the **** did Davis not get called for a technical?
Perkins is a land mass down there.
Rondo never does anything wrong, you ever notice that? He's been perfect in every part of the game. He never makes a mistake. Why does he have to do it against us??
Is Rondo reproducing out there? Dude is everywhere.
After watching Tim Thomas attempt to go one on one against Kendrick Perkins, I can safely say I'm done watching this game.
If you turn on this team, you won't get to enjoy the forthcoming epic comeback.
Fire Vinny Del Idiot. Preferably before Game 4.
Well its quite obvious Rose isn't near as good as we thought, he is just a rookie and Rondo has made him look like it.
Boston had KG we would have gotten swept.
Rondo is 5 assists and 5 steals shy of a quad double. I'm cheering for that.
Screw Boston, they win everything. I can't wait to see them fall on their faces in round 2. We really should have won game 2.
So much for the up and coming Bulls he? Can't beat the C's without KG and Powe.
Well, the Celtics are just outclassing the Bulls. Just got to give them credit.
Odds on Marbury to come out with this quote after the game...? ''I think I can step up with Rajon and fill in what we are missing with KG..Starbury is back!''
I don't think we will recover from this loss - this is really going to hurt our confidence being a young team.
Someone put in Anthony Roberson and tell him to start a brawl with the Celtics team.
Boston plays defense. Bulls don't. Even their 3rd team players are better on D than our starters.
I've seen teams suck before, but this is the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.
Can we hire a defensive coach this offseason that will actually teach Rose how to play defense, someone like the guy sitting in the Celtics bench?
I don't know what was worse this game. The Bulls defense or the Bulls offense.
The Celtics look like they have the Bulls figured out truthfully.
Boston is about 17 illegal screens away from playing a perfect game tonight.
On a positive note...Vinny has been really good with his time outs tonight...I think we should have atleast a couple left for our late run
So how did we let Big Baby get six steals?
Reboot the Thibodaue bandwagon. C's defense looks damn dominant again.
They're not showing him on camera but I'm positive that KG is doing something INTENSE right now.
Absolute complasiveness from the start
Please tell me English is not your first language...
Eddie House, meet Anthony Roberson. He's like you, only greater.
I have a feeling the next game will almost be worse than this game. I bet we come out and Boston puts up a 40 spot after one and hits lights out from 3 and we'll be down by like 20 something and it'll take the life out of us.
HAHA Rondo can't walk!!!!!!!!
Brian Scalabrine looks like Michael Rappaport in that celebrity game out there.
Next game is crucial. The series is far far from over.
Took their best shot in Game 2, huh? I can't believe how ridiculously overconfident some people were
But really though, the Celtics just played ridiculously good today. I honestly don't think you will see Rondo and Big baby continually play like the have..
WOW...there are still some Bulls fan out there who believe Rose's awful past 2 games is a result of him being passive/teammates ignoring him. Are these guys blind? How can anyone not see Boston building a wall any time he looks to penetrate? They have ADJUSTED. They are not going to allow Rose to get to the rack in a halfcourt setting. They are packing it in, trapping, building a wall....how CAN YOU NOT SEE THIS?
You mean, Boston has coaching?
Rondo's body has broken down due to the energy used in whipping our a**.
Rondo can't walk. Now there going to start saying how big of a warrior he is for playing in this series almost like Chris Duhon and his badly bruised ribs against the Illini like 6 years ago... I'm sure he'll be fine.. But its good to see him so hurt.
Repent. Stop saying bad things about Rondo. He may in fact be the son of God. I'm gonna go ahead and start praying to him just in case.
Did rondo just really get carried off the court??? Was that his dwayne wade impersonation from 2 yrs ago? If so, that's funny as all ##$##$%#$ hell!
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Maybe a fan took him out with a hammer.
This was more about the Bulls blowing it more than it was Boston owning it.
C'mon and come back to non-Bulls fan reality. We got socked in the mouth and didn't hit back. We got owned.
It's shocking how one game can change our perception. Before Game 3, the Bulls were playing toe to toe with the Celtics, made their home field advantage null, basically had them on the ropes. With this loss, people will realize that the Celtics should really be up 3-0. We got lucky in winning Game 1.
Even if the Bulls win on Sunday, they would need to win in Boston again, if they want to close out the series in Chicago. If this goes to 7 games, I can't see the Bulls winning in Boston.
Boston is a flat out better team than we are, even without Powe and Garnett and it's time for people to realize that. We have potential, there is no doubt about that. But there is a difference between talent and potential.
I think with a healthy Garnett they are still the best in the East. I have been very impressed with this team without KG so far. Most of that is due to Davis and Rondo. They have both taken even a bigger step this season. Rondo looks terrific. I know the Cavs are good but I just don't buy a team with LeBron and "the supporting cast". I know Mo Williams is good and they play good defense. But I would still take KG/Ray Allen/Pierce/Rondo/Perkins/Davis/House over them at this point. I have been really impressed with Davis and Rondo..wow.
We were thoroughly out coached in this game.... In every facet.
We need to shut Rondo down or at worst bring him down to Earth. People are calling him a Superstar now if that isn't absolutely ridiculous.
it's kinda sad that Glen Davis (who was a 2nd rounder) is more consistent then his former LSU teammate who was picked #4 overall. I think Garnett helped Davis a ton, but he has been stellar in this series thus far. I will say it again, if Garnett was healthy and the improvements of Davis/Rondo and House the Celtics are the best team in the NBA.
The thing for me is, we havent had a break yet. I feel that the Celtics are playing wayyyy above themselves right now as in their role players (rondo and bigbaby). And I am really waiting for that first crack in the armor.
Maybe they're just damn good (Rondo) and a lot better (Fat Baby) than the avg. Bulls fan thinks?
The Celtics are slowly but surely breaking down in front of us and I think are running on fumes and guts. We just need something to push us over the top and capitalize on their lack of players.
Well, at least the Bulls didn't set a team record for futility like the Spurs just did (67 points - new franchise playoff low)
