    I'm just saying those are the excuses almost every fan gives. He says the same things when the Bears lose, too, that the refs did them dirty.
    Do I say it in every game? No. Only where there is a really bad missed call or large discrepancies in amount of calls. Just be consistent on both ends of the floor and don't let the biases of home court, more aggressive play and down the stretch, etc. get in the way.Refs can make a difference in the way a game goes and there are times when they can be blamed.

    What an ugly game last night. Now, if Bulls can pull out a win in Philly.... Just want to see more basketball.

    What was CJ thinking? Passing it to a 51% free throw shooter?

    They gagged bigtime in that last minute. That's what happens when the majority of your starting lineup is on the bench in crunch time.

    Speaking of gagging big time, Miami does it again and loses home court advantage. Will they even make it to the conference finals??

    As much fun as it was watching him miss free throws, and seeing Miami lose at home, the game probably just served as a wake up call for them.
    They were cruising in the first half, and could have put Indy away for the season... but then they let themselves get ruffed up. Indy pulled a "Detroit Bad Boys" on them, and they simply couldn't deal with it. They just aren't that kind of team... I'm sure they will make adjustments and won't let that happen to them again.

    But yes, it would be great to watched them get knocked out

    Yes, that was quite frustrating. He probably won't be coming back to the same team. Hopefully the young stud that we drafted the rights to will be done with his contract and able to join us.

    Miami got their wakeup call. I'll be shocked if Indy wins another game. Even if Bosch is out.

    How about the Lakers getting blown the hell out by OKC?

    Bulls out, Mavs out, Lakers look suspect, Celtics look old... if the Heat get knocked out, I wouldn't be surprised if it comes down to something no one expected like Sixers and Clippers

    Love that OKC won and hope they make it all the way. Don't know why I like them, but better than the Lakers.

    Alby --

    First, the Clippers are poorly coached. They have no shot. So put that thought out of your mind.
    And Boston may be a little old, but the talent gap with the Sixers is considerable. Hell, Indy might have more talent.

    I would personally love to see an NBA title land in a place like OKC, but don't sleep on San Antonio. All they do is beat you. Like a machine. And they have the best coach still standing in Popovich.

    The Spurs are officially my pick at this point.

    Miami scoring by quarter:

    1st: 26
    2nd: 17
    3rd: 12

    Not a great trend if you want to win a game and not go down 2-1.

    With 2:46 left in game they wave the white flag and take out the starters. That would be great if Indiana did knock them out in this round.

    That talent gap has the series at 2-2

    But they come back and tie up series to take back home court advantage.

    Meanwhile, Magic fire Stan Van Gundy and GM Otis Smith. Certainly not a surprise that Stan is gone but he will find another job quickly.

    Presumably Dwight Howard will be anointing the next administration as part of his compensation package.

    But you hit it on the head. Lakers are now out of it. Bet networks are hoping for Boston to make it to the finals.

    The Sixers would be a scary team if they had even a borderline top talent.

    Why is it that every time there is an NBA player who wants to move to another team it is always LA, NY or Miami? I understand it for this year since Bulls probably won't have Rose for the year and Deng may be out for the first month, but this has been going on for a few years now. Only explanation I hear is that Chicago is cold. BS!!!! What wimps they are. What happened to players who actually wanted to win a title?

    It's a pretty easy calculus of dollars, glamor, fame and fun.

    Be glad we're solidly second-tier and not trying to attract free agents to woebegone outposts like Minneapolis, Charlotte, Memphis, OKC, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland... At least Chicago offers everything but the weather, and Rose will attract a true #2 scorer at some point.

    Oh, and next season is already a lost cause. Be ready.

    Yes, I've resigned myself to that already. Deng out two to three months (though his camp says only ten games) and Rose likely out for most if not all of the year. Plus they have no room under the cap to do anything except bring in some role players after getting rid of a few guys already on the roster.

    Boo hoo Bulls fans.

    The Sixers are going to the conference Finals after tomorrow and they'd be lucky if they can add someone like Chris Kaman in the offseason. Chicago does not have it hard for attracting talent.
