    I think they can do it but they really need to play together. We split with Boston this year and if Butler can contain Thomas we have a real shot here. But they can also play really bad. Don't know what Bulls team will show up.

    well, we got an iffy bulls team and it was good enough. Wade was not wade, Niko was the niko that looks like he forgets how to play basketball, Rolo was big, but do we have that guy that will put Thomas on the floor hard? Yes it lights him up, but it also gets technicals.

    They really seemed to give Thomas room with the sisters death deal. But after seeing Thomas taking full advantage of getting calls on fouls, I think they got over it. When Rondo lost his composure, I was hoping to see MCW get a D shot on Thomas, but it all worked out.

    Lets not forget the TNT Bulls, and its 3 of the first 4 games.

    Could totally see us laying a complete egg coming back home, and losing by 15. Handing them the momentum back.

    Would be such a Bulls move. Right when we take control of the driver's seat, just hand it right back.

    That Celtic coach will be gone. This is just embarrassing for Boston. I hate the fact that the little thugs sister was killed, but this bulls team is making boston look like a high school team.

    Yes home and ESPN on Friday, TNT Bulls on Sunday though and after this team "coming together" for the wake or funeral today, they should come out with alot of determination. The 90's bulls would have someone put Isiah Thomas on his ass when he drives to the lane though and make him a jump shooter.

    No... the Celtics coach will not be gone. He's considered one of the best coaches in the game, and the single best young coach. They love him, and rightfully so.

    2-10 so far in the playoffs is not helping. He will probably get another assistant with more experience.

    Well, Rondo is out with a fractured thrumb, looks like his season is over. Just finally found the chemistry, can this be what throws off the bulls team, with Wade and Butler bringing the ball up again?

    Amazing that Rondo didn't start for most of the year. This team is lost without him on offense. It was awesome watching him in game 2 control the whole game, defensively also. The first quarter yesterday was a disaster. Every shot was contested, nothing easy. Grant is having trouble dribbling. Wonder if Rondo will be back next yr.??
    I know Wade is hall of Famer and still a really good player but imagine Rondo, Butler, a Shooter, Rolo, Portis or Mirotic

    I am wondering if Rondo is going to cut off the cast and be ready on Wednesday.

    WTF was Derrick Rose in the building for yesterday? Prove they cant win without a point guard?

    There are 36 fouls on the bench, stop this bullshit with Thomas and put the man on the floor already. 5 point guards on the roster cannot play point, but they cant foul the midget either?

    How bad is Denzel Valentine? At least he would penetrate and kick to a shooter on offense. But Cannon and Lavergne in the game before him? What is with Cam Payne and Morrow in street clothes? Grant and MCW have proven they dont belong on the floor, why not throw someone else out there? Yes, he did throw Cannon out there, but seriously expecting the man to play 34 minutes after not playing for 3 months, of course he is going to be shooting air balls.

    We at least know Cannon should start Wednesday, but first off the bench should be Payne or Valentine.

    cast is off, Rondo back at practice, could be a huge momentum change in Boston Wednesday, more likely Friday elimination game.

    He's not playing...

    This season is OVA

    Oh well, it was fun for two games. We f'ing gave away Game 5.

    Maybe we can force a Game 7, but VERY, VERY little chance we beat Boston twice in a row. Even if Rondo comes back for a potential series-deciding game. I'm betting he'd have some trouble with that thumb. Broken thumbs don't heal in one week.

    the thing is though, the fracture is on the tip of the thumb, which is why they cant do surgery. Its the ligament in the wrist that is the bigger picture I believe. I just cant understand since he is going to heal before next year anyway and the bulls are pretty much over a barrel with him and what he showed in leadership thru this shit show. So that 14 million is in the bank or he will get it somewhere else after 4 months of healing.

    I know what you're saying on the healing in the off-season part. However, I honestly think he may not be able to dribble or shoot effectively yet man. There was a clip of him practicing before game 5 and he was shooting lefty.

    Thats pretty much the difference though, I prefer non of our point guards shoot.
