Apparently, Kirk played a bad game.

Today will be better. We win, even though Rondo may give Kirk's balky knee some trouble. Marquis will be the difference.

Bulls 90, Celts 84

Noah was dropping dimes like a mad man in this game... solid all-round passing effort from the Bulls tonight. Nate Robinson hit 5 threes. Boozer put up 21 and 12 but was dead last in +/- if I remember correctly.

Saw a quote from Doc Rivers where he considers Noah to be the Bulls point guard at times. He really likes Jo.

Joakim is growing up before our eyes. Very cool.
