Not many Bulls fans were expecting a win but most were expecting a competitive game. It always amazes me how fans end up trashing their own team instead of realizing that the Celtics defense just makes players look bad. Here are today's comments from the other side... Enjoy!
This should be another interesting game. It would be funny if there were overtimes.
No more Ben Gordon to save the Bulls....Celtics win big
Agreed ,The Bulls will lose big time because they do not have Ben Gordon to light it up when they need points .Nice to see people seeing the game the same way and result.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm scared...
I believe in our team. But I also think that just a few teams will celebrate in Boston this year.
This does seem like it has all the makings of a blowout loss.
I think the Celtics will be very "up" for this game, and the Bulls simply aren't good enough to beat an "up" Celtics team on the road unless they play absolutely lights out.
The Bulls proved last night they can beat the elite teams in the league. The Celtics aren't any better than the Spurs and we smoked them. Bulls win by 8 and get their revenge.
Loss. But I do think it will be a well-played game, and I'm hoping that Hinrich gets a justifiable chance to knock Rondo on his tranny, waxed ass.
Is it wrong for me to say that, even in a loss, I will be satisfied if Rondo and KG both receive hard fouls?
KG sat on Raymond felton's head the other night. he's got sumt'n coming to him in the form of a brad miller clothesline
I hope that we give KG a hard foul for all that yapping off the bench in that playoff series.
The Celtics look revived and ready for another title run. They have a deep bench with the additions of Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels. They however will not have Glen Davis...
We care that they don't have fat-ass? I don't know if the Bulls will beat the Celtics but I sure as hell wont blame it on the C's not having Davis.
Someone undercut Rondo on a layup so he cracks his skull and is out for... The rest of his alien life existence.
I think it will be a great game but Celtics look tough. They are my pick to win the title this year. Sheed looks awesome.
I hope someone hit's Rondo hard in his mouth tonight. Hinrich maybe. Just kill the bastard. And KG too.
I hope he leaves the arena on a stretcher.
I really do think their bench will have to play at our's bench level, not the other way around.
I am a little worried that the Bulls will be intimidated by Kevin Garnett
The C's are an old team. I like the match up of Salmons vs. Ray Allen a lot. Plus Deng usually does well on Pierce. Rose v. Rondo...how can you not feel good about that? Rose against anyone is fine with me. That's why he was chosen #1 overall.
I have a feeling that we're going to beat them by at least 8 points.
Celtics by 20. That playoff was a fluke without KG.If Pierce could hit a free-throw it only goes 5. Celtics are elite, Bulls are just another team.
I know Big Baby was just a product of the other players, but I can't believe that fool was making all of those shots against us
Time to make another contender look old: run them off the 3pt line, erase some shots at the rim, jump-kick Garnett's knee, and sprint up the floor for dunks and open 3s.
I never like it when sports devolves into outright brawling. But were KG to do something untoward, and were James Johnson to kick him in his cartoon chin, I would get over it. Quickly
I wouldn't mind seeing JJ karate kick rasheed either...man the Celtics really have some unlikable players
I don't think the Celts like athletic teams. They have had trouble with Atlanta in the past because of their athleticism. Basically, their core are 3 old guys and another old guy coming off the bench. We squeeze them on defense and run them out of the gym.
Pierce silky smooth.
Celtics defense is on point. Forcing Bulls into bad shots. I don't have a lot of complaints about the Bulls defense on the Celtics so far.
Boston's defense is pretty much epic. It's thinking about 2 moves ahead of our offense.
If Tim D's book was correct, the officials have a bet on who can call the most fouls tonight I guess.
Are they aware that this isn't a Celtics scrimmage, and that the Bulls are playing too?
Between Rondo, Garnett, and Marquis Daniels the Celtics sure do have a lot of players that look like aliens...
Luck shot from Rasheed..
Wow does sheed look out of shape
Miller getting some shots in on these Celts. He got Rando earlier and he just gave Pierce a nice forearm.
Is Salmons playing for the Celtics? AT this rate, he won't opt out after this year.
This is what I expected....Celtics defense is too good and we don't have any playmakers/scorers to keep the points coming. Blowout city.
The C's defense isn't harming Salmons, he just can't make a shot.
That is crap....Daniels wipes out DEng, no call and Allen gets the SAME thing and theres the whistle.
If only we could shoot better than 28%.
Wallace looks like a taller Eddie House. With the same fatness.
If you're going to get a T for the slap, at least manage to slap the ball out of his hand Jo. That's just embarrassing!
Truly, though, I'd want to hit Perkins every time I played him. The Celtics are so positively unlikable.
Ray Allen is murdering Salmons
I want to murder John Salmons right now
Ok these refs are killing this game...
I can honestly say that, after his displays last year in the playoffs, I now despise Kevin Garnett. Used to be a big fan. I've never changed my opinion so fast about someone, and he never even played a game.
The new motivation for this game should be to score 70 points tonight
So we're going to lose horribly.. Not too unexpected. Celtics are looking seriously tough this year
I am going to see blocks on layups and strips and steals in my sleep tonight.
Our goal for the 2nd half should be- make 2 free throws in a row.
The Celtics are denying everything in the paint probably 2/3 of our TOs are from there...why do we keep trying?
The average margin of victory against Chicago for Boston at home since they acquired KG has been 20 ppg. Bulls NEVER had a shot in this game.
The Bulls are beating themselves
What is it that makes Ray Allen hit every single shot against us? Then he'll go 0-7 from 3 in a game against somebody else...
I dislike Boston.
Rondo has the life as a PG for the Celtics I could get 5 assist a game with Ray, KG and The Truth.
I really dislike playing Boston, It's like playing an allstar team
Let's just face it, the Celtics are really really good. We are not in their class and won't be this year. They've beaten us every single time we've played them with Garnett in the lineup, and all except maybe 1-2 have been blowouts.
This is just a sad, very depressing reality check.
Man those Celtics are lucky we don't have Aaron Gray for this one
Try to get the lead under 20 to avoid further humiliation.
Anyone notice Doc Rivers is working the refs while Vinnie just sits back watching. This is a problem for a team with no on court leader.
