This is the game where Scottie's statue will be unveiled. That's going to create even more buzz.

Hey Boozer! Will you quit screaming HEY after every freaking shot you take like you get fouled every single time. Play the freaking game. So annoyed of that.

Boozer was totally acting like a fake bully out there, screaming "and 1!" every damn time he misses a totally weak shot, pushing around everyone but KG and then yelling dumb stuff like gimme that Jo when taking a rebound away from Noah lol. Deng had a much better all around game than Boozer and yet hes not out there acting like a fake KG.

Derrick puts Rondo on his mantle as he continues his streak of destroying opposing PG's.

Noah struggled again tonight, I hope he picks it up soon because we will need him for the playoffs at his absolute best.

Just got back from the game. What a fantastic defensive effort. Rose and Deng were outstanding and Boozer seemed like he was doing pretty well, though he did fling up a couple of ugly shots around the basket.

what a great game to be at. The Bulls beat the Celtics, Scottie gets a bust, and the magic number is 1.

Boozer's D was in playoff form, which is good enough for me! What a block in the first quarter.

Kurt Thomas was really good on D tonight, as well.

This game probably gave the biggest clue to how Thibodeau will do his rotations. Noah wasn't getting it done, so he went to Thomas in the fourth. I'm sure Noah will play his usual minutes against the Cavs; tonight's game was simply too important for Coach to play a set rotation.

To top it off, I actually bumped into Jerry Reinsdorf on the street outside my office yesterday and said hi, as I was on my way to the White Sox home opener.

Quite the sports day!

I don't think my wallet to Jerry would even be the equivalent of a penny on the street to me.
Oh don't be so sure my friend not only does Reinsdorf share a similar physique he also shares some of the very same traits as the world famous Mr Krabs.

YES A SPONGE BOB REFERENCE!

White Sox have the 5th highest payroll in baseball... I'm not complaining. (I don't get the Spongebob reference but I'm assuming you're calling him cheap...)
