Chicago has to close the quarter strong

This Bulls team is so damn admirable.

 

If half the teams played with as much heart as these guys do, the entire sport would benefit.

 

Great performance from the Bulls so far.  Hopefully they prove me wrong and bring it to Game 6.

Do they really REALLY believe that Nate Robinson did THAT much damage to LeBron?

And they didn't call the over the back on Wade who dug his knee into Noah's back?

So little Nate Robinson put his hands up and launched LeBron off the court???

Really?  You REALLY believe that?

But wade jumped on Noah's back and no foul is called?

Thank goodness it was just a common foul..


The fact they even had to argue if it was flagrant or not is laughable.

They are gonna need to find their offensive consistency again.   Nate isn't going for shots and Butler isn't firing as quickly and thinking too much.

They got about 30 seconds to turn it around.  Stop and a score.  If that doesn't happen or if Miami scores or gets a rebound off the miss then the game is over.

Valiant effort, but at some point the shallow bench and thin roster bows out to the better and healthier team.

 

Good try though Bulls - extremely admirable.

Boozer should have passed that a lot sooner.

Bulls need a stop and the ball should be in Robinsons hands

It doesn't matter if they're fouling you Boozer.  It hasn't for the last two games.  Play through it.  Wade went for a piggy back ride on Noah earlier for no foul call followed by the refs actually having to decide whether or not Nate robinson actually launched LeBron James out of bounds...

Play through it.

The playstyle of bigs like Boozer is frustrating, if anything these playoffs show what actually bigs do like Gasol, Randolph and Hibbert.

Bulls wasted too much time trying to decide who would shoot the three.  Had a couple of chances there.

Those seconds of hesitation have cost them.


On to the next round against Indiana. 

GREAT effort by the Bulls.

If they keep this team together next year with a healthy Rose they'll do some big damage.

I think Indiana is going to cause the Heat a LOT of problems from what I've seen in this Chicago series.

The Pacers problem is that they too don't really have an offensive system.

But they seem to be finding a consistent one against the Knicks, and with the defense they play and the interior presence, and the way they shut down the perimeter, Paul George on LeBron, Hibbert at the rim should LeBron get past George, they could upset the Heat.   Been picking them all year to be the ones that will come out of the East and by far the scariest.  It's time to find out.

The only thing I'm worried about is that the refs are letting the Knicks vs the Pacers series be very physical.

When Hibbert stops people at the basket, something in the back of my mind tells me that all of those times will be called fouls against the Heat(LeBron in particular) and that Hibbert will pick up two quick fouls at the start of many games.
