    Thunder and Heat seem not to care about home court advantage. Now they are two behind Bulls in loss column and Spurs are only one behind. It would be nice if Bulls could get it. Every little bit helps.

    Miami seems dis-interested right now. Are they in the "we'll make the playoffs as second seed so why bother" mode?

    Yeah... it seems like Miami does indeed think they can win it all and that the regular season doesn't really matter. I wonder if that attitude will serve them well in the post season.

    The Knicks went 3 crazy on the Celtics. 19/32 from the 3-point line. They had a better shooting percentage from beyond the arc than FG%.

    Well now we'll see if they can do it after resting starters at end of year and losing home court advantage to the Bulls. Chicago also has same record as Spurs and own tiebreaker against them for overall best record. Thibs will definitely play starters to try and get them in some type of rhythm going into the playoffs. Question for them is health of team going forward. They can't afford any more set backs.

    Miami did something that I didn't think possible. Overtook the Lakers as my most hated team.

    Bulls take 1-0 lead over 76ers; season ends.

    Derrick Rose has officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee, and he will not return this season.

    Rose simply couldn't stay healthy this year and although the temptation is reasonable, nobody should be pointing fingers at Tom Thibodeau for leaving his starters in the game with a double-digit lead and 80 seconds remaining. Thibodeau noted that Philly was making a late run and he wanted his team to both stop their momentum and practice closing out meaningful games. In any case, Chicago will soldier on with C.J. Watson starting at PG and John Lucas absorbing backup minutes. Presumably, Rose will need surgery but he should be ready for the start of training camp.

    I have been busy all day (for those of you that know him, PJ was in town) so I did not see game but saw final score. Just saw JR's note. Oh well, there goes the conference finals, at least.

    You do realize that the Bull's record without Rose was 18-9. That .666 winning percentage is better than every other team's percentage in the East except for Miami.
    And in most of those games Hamilton didn't play and in a few Deng didn't either.

    SO, while I doubt they can beat the Heat, there's no reason to think they automatically can't beat any other team in the East.

    I like it. Pretty good. But the suit he was wearing at the news conference the other day looked a lot more expensive then 300 bucks.

    So Alby, are you going on record as saying they'll lose to the 76ers?
    I just want to know so I can abuse you when they win. (and I'll expect the same if they lose).

    Yes. The 76ers will be advancing.

    And with him out I am losing hope for this series. They had game in hand at start of third quarter and then went cold shooting. But maybe it is best they go out early and get healthy for next year. But I'm upset with Luol's decision to play in Olympics and then have the surgery. That will not endear him to Bulls fans. His first priority should be to the Bulls esp. knowing Rose will miss at least two months of the season.

    So I was right about Da Bears post-Cutler and also right about the Bulls. You guys look through such Rose-colored glasses.

    Bulls missed early open close shots and made some bad turnovers in this game but so did Philly. So, (and once again I know I'll get **** for this), it comes down to free throws where there are 22 free throws made by Philly and Bulls only get to foul line 14 times!

    :wtf:

    I saw at least four plays where Bulls were getting mugged under the basket, no foul is called, same thing happens on other end and there is the whistle. This was a veteran crew and you have to expect a lot better from them. These two teams are evenly matched when Rose not in lineup but there were not given much of a chance, esp. down the stretch in these last two games. Look at the stats - Bulls won every category except turnovers.



    And Alby, I don't agree with your post. Bulls are much better with Rose and equal to Philly without him. Plus in this game they also didn't have Noah. We expect that if the back ups play decently our teams can win the game, as they did in regular season. Unfortunately, they haven't done so in both cases.

    In all fairness Alby, when Cutler went down, our optimism was still high, and then Forte went down. That finished them.
    Similar, Rose went down and we didn't think it was quite the end, and then Noah went down. That didn't help at all.
    So yes, we were looking through rose colored glasses, but additional injuries impacted the outcomes considerably.

    Not a good last half year to be a Chicago fan.

    Great article by Michael Wilbon: http://espn.go.com/chicago/nba/story...-legend-curses

    Yes, this is how it feels for us.

    And I was at that Bears game where Sayers got hurt. One of the worst days in Chicago sports history. I told my Dad that was it for his career when we saw him go down.

    Yeah it's too bad that they didn't have the techniques they have today.
    The doctor that did his surgery was a member at the CC where I caddied growing up. I remember another boy getting a thorn in his foot and "that doctor" went over and cut a hole the size of a quarter in his foot to get it out, and all I could think was "no wonder Gale never played again"

    While some of the refs decisions seemed a bit inconsistent at the end there, the Bulls should have played good enough that it shouldn't have mattered.

    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.

    In the NBA, in the absence of superstars, the more aggressive team tends to get any imbalance in the calls.
    Especially down the stretch. Especially at home.

    I think that's all that's happened here. The Bulls are on their heels, and that shows up in a number of ways. Free throw disparity, for instance, is the result of playing style much more than the refs.

    I am not among those who believes the Bulls played well enough to win either of the games in Philly. The 76ers have tons of confidence right now, so it would be no surprise to see them finish the 4-game blitz tomorrow.
