Kurt Thomas was awesome against the Celtics, he gave the Bulls an edge and told the Celtics "You're not going to bully us like other teams!" Also, you have to love Deng's performance in this game... I hope that they can keep playing like this through the playoffs and win it all.

Totally agree with you about Thomas. He and Keith Bogans were pushing the Celtics around in the third quarter. The Celtics are bullies, and it reminded me of when the Bulls finally started to push back against the Pistons back in the early 90s. Great win. This Bulls team has got to be the favorite to get through the East now that they've virtually locked down home court. They still have a shot at home court against the Spurs, and of course would have it against anyone else they play. It's so much fun to be a fan of this team right now.

I totally agree. Starting late in the 3rd quarter after the Boston time out Boston start getting very physical and pushing and shoving the bulls. Then Tribs put in Thomas who just played great and Tribs had Thomas set the hight pick for the pick and roll with Rose and from then on you could just see that Boston knew that the bulls would not be bullied. IMHO after that and about 4 minutes into the 4th quarter Boston just gave up and they didnt seem to care?

Great 2nd half by Thomas.
