Noah's minutes need to seriously get cut down. He just isn't effective right now.
yep, his rotations are really laughable. noah has been a none factor on offense.
mirotic should get way more playing time. although i have a feeling his confidence and rhythm are shot right now, because of inconsistent minutes.
id also throw his snell and doug as sharpshooters.

i can see why the front office wants to give him the boot after the season.

Re: The Playoffs!!!

Bulls Win! Bulls Win!

Game 3 was a tough, close game, but the Bulls came through with a victory.

While Lebron had another solid game, this time it was Rose who came through, with 30 points and 7 assists. Butler and Dunleavy also played well, but I think the play of Gibson and Mirotic off of the bench was critical, especially as Noah and Gasol were largely ineffective offensively.


Game 4 will be fantastic. I hope the Bulls can pull out another win.

That shot. Wow. A game four win would be huge. Here's hoping.

Bulls Re: The Playoffs!!!

Eh, I'm still skeptical. I need to see a win in Game 4 to be convinced.

Thing is, Snell often plays well when he's thrown into the mix. This isn't the Snell we saw last year or early this year. He is a legit good defender who can drive to the rack, finish, and be some semblance of a 3-pt threat. He doesn't make the number of dumb mistakes that people purport him to make.

Mirotic has played like crap, but I also think his knee is hurting still (from the Bucks game 2 tie up with Zaza). It doesn't help that he gets thrown out there for 5 random minutes and doesn't get his number called.

I know fans will use his coaching missteps as justification, but really this is not to "blame" him per say, rather it's about putting the team in a position to succeed moving forward.

Re: The Playoffs!!!

We're playing well so far and Rose doing a good job ! But we gotta get the rebound and defense better !! Butler had 2 fouls already, that's bad news for us

Re: The Playoffs!!!

We need Gasol back desperately. Game 6 becomes critical. It may be too late now though.

Re: The Playoffs!!!

Man, this series is over. You can just see it. Game 4 was our shot and we blew it.

Gasol being out the past 2.5 games has been killer. This is one of the problems I have with Thibodeau. He relies so much on his main guys in the regular season, that when one of them goes down, the reserves are not prepared to step in and do their job. This has been an issue going back since he's been here. At what point have we as Bulls fans looked at Thibodeau and said he's legitimately out coached the opposition in a 7-game playoff series. None in 5 years.

Re: The Playoffs!!!

I don't think Gasol will be back but we have to find a solution to our paint players ! Mirotic can't score, Gibson trys to dunk but he misses it, Noah bangs 4 points ! That's not enough for us

Re: The Playoffs!!!

I remember back when cats used to love Noah. Like, well, last year. Anyhow, cats is straight ripping Noah a new one over on Real GM. They absolutely hate his guts right now. Ah well. It's like I always say, they love you until they don't.

I'll always appreciate what Noah did for the franchise. Injected alot of energy and good play for a long time. Always got better, until this year. I can't possibly "hate" him for his knees being bone-on-bone shot. It's on Thibodeau to have the guts to play him less or make him a backup center.

Yeah, I pretty much decided when LBJ's game-winner went in that the series was over. Just knowing this Bulls team, that seemed like a dagger to the heart.

I hope they come out with Pau back and win tonight, but I'm not holding my breath.

Fans are fickle creatures.

Re: The Playoffs!!!

Now I have nothing to do. What will I do to fill in the time now that there is no more Bulls basketball to watch until November?
