Good news with Miami's loss to New York, we are tied with them in the loss mark. They played 3 more games than us, which we would need to make up in the win column to be tied with them.

Me too. I know they'll be out in the 1st round so they'll eventually shut up, while having the number 1 seed would really ease our path for a championship.

Miami has the toughest schedule down the stretch of the top three. The bulls can make a big splash if they defeat them in Miami. Judging by how many Knick fans there were in the crowd tonight it should be like a home game when they play the Bulls. I'm even thinking about traveling to that game.:bud:

Boston knocks off Utah 107-102 but the Bulls get closer to Miami. Also Josh Smith left the Hawks game injured so his status for Wednesday's game is uncertain.

Miami blows a 24 point lead to Orlando who wins 99-96. Bulls only down 1 game to Miami yet again.

Bulls get a tired Orlando team tomorrow while the Heat play the Spurs so the Bulls have a chance to snag the 2 seed tomorrow.

We got the 2 seed, we need to win Sunday to create some space and for Boston to start losing.

The Celtics are annoying because...they're good? :laugh:

The Bulls have the 2 seed for the moment. They need to get some distance from MIA. But I think the Heat are going to be really motivated tomorrow, considering how badly they've been embarrassed by their performances this past week (Losses to NYK, ORL, SAS).

They probably should have been motivated last night against SA after blowing a 20+ lead to Orlando but for some reason they didn't bring it again and lost by 30. The trend is real, they can't seem to hang with the big boy teams in the NBA and its due to their weak supporting cast outside of the BIG 3 and more importantly their inability to play as a T-E-A-M.

On a side note, I really do not like the comments being made by LeBron regarding the trades being made before the deadline. Saying something like "We started a trend, were making the teams improve their roster to stay competitive."

NO LEBRON, you, wade, and bosh all decided to PICK one team this past summer to make a team great. However, NY actually had to give up many players in their starting line up to add another superstar. Same with Boston a few years ago, its not like Pierce, Garnett, and Allen all hung out one summer and said hey lets all sign up with the Celts and make a dynasty. THEY WERE TRADED. Same with Deron to the Nets. I am very happy about Miami's troubles and I hope it gets worse for them. They play a string of tough games and I'd love to see them loose them all.

Go Bulls.

Mother****ing Celtics just won't lose. They beat Milwaukee today.

I think the #2 spot is OURS! The C's will not relinquish the top spot, but I'm thinking now that I would rather play Miami in the 2nd round than play Atlanta or Orlando. Miami will have a tough time with even NY and I think we know what their weaknesses are. They on the other hand are still trying to figure that out. Elitists! They always blame someone else. The #2 spot is the best for us.
