You'd really think AT LEAST Harrington will be back by Friday, if not Curry. I'd replace the starting lineups.

Anyways....Madison Square Gordon lights up the Knicks again

Bulls 97
Knicks 84

Gordon 10/17 25 points
Crawford 7/20 18 points

I like that Nickname. I think the Bulls will win this game also, but it should be another close game.

Bulls 97 / Knicks 94

Gordon should break out of his slump and score 25.

knicks were unable/unwilling to pull one out last night v. the nets. they might as well have just stayed on their side of the hudson for the effort they put out - down at one point by 27. the sculpture garden at the MOMA has more movement than the knicks playing defense - they are like statues - literally STANDING around. pathetic and embarrasing.

so this could be a dangerous game. knicks on the schneid - 8 game losing streak. we have to come out strong. thank goodness we get oh fella back tonight as we'll need his inside presence!

hopefully mama gordon fixed her boy some curried goat like the last time he was in town to play the knickerbockers. that seemed to do the trick.

we need big games from benny, kirk, chandler and _________(insert name of hero sub off the bench)...


go bulls. miz will be there - 100 level!! - cheering you on!!

oh the sweet and delicious irony. we win tonight and the knicks are OFFICIALLY ELIMINATED from the playoffs! LOL.




The Knicks (29-45) will be eliminated from the playoff race with another defeat or another Philadelphia victory. There are eight games left to accomplish something else, and learning to play a complete game may top the list.

Chicago...
After a win are 8-2
After playing Magic are 3-7
Before playing Raptors are 5-5
When playing on Friday are 5-5


Bulls line -2 1/2

I'll say Bulls by 2 1/2 sounds very good as long as Kirk's hammy stays cool



So for all intents and purposes...... Its the Bulls who can be the ones to eliminate from the playoffs the "more talented playoff bound" Knicks, who were said to have raped Paxson this summer........and simultaneously assure themselves a post season berth (basically). The Bulls with the same coach. The Knicks with an interim

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bulls can eliminate the New York Knicks from playoff contention and move to the brink of clinching their first postseason berth since 1998 when the teams meet Friday at Madison Square Garden.

The Bulls are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race, six games ahead of ninth-place New Jersey with eight contests remaining.

Chicago moved a game ahead of fifth-place Washington with a 102-101 overtime triumph at Orlando on Wednesday, its 10th victory in 11 games. Antonio Davis made 1-of-2 free throws with 1.4 seconds left in the extra session for the winning margin.

Kirk Hinrich, who had been held scoreless at Miami on Tuesday, scored 25 points and Tyson Chandler added 15 and 22 rebounds for the Bulls, who again were without center Eddy Curry (irregular heartbeat) and Othella Harrington (in Chicago with his pregnant wife).

The Knicks lost their season-high eighth straight, falling at New Jersey, 110-98 on Thursday.

Stephon Marbury scored 30 points and Jamal Crawford added 26 for New York, which will be eliminated with its next loss or a win by eighth-place Philadelphia, which hosts Cleveland on Friday.

Earlier this season, the Bulls swept a home-and-home series with the Knicks, recording an 86-84 victory at the United Center on January 15 and an 88-86 win here two days later. Curry made a go-ahead layup with 2.4 seconds left in the first game and Ben Gordon - a native of nearby Mount Vernon, New York - converted a floater in the lane with less than a second remaining in the second contest.

The teams conclude the season series in Chicago on April 19.




oh the ripe lucious sweet and juicy ready for the pickin' irony!!!!





GO BULLS!

There might be something worse than Jamal Crawford's shot selection.

It's his team selection.

Crawford chose to leave the Chicago Bulls and sign for big bucks with the Knicks last summer. You know how they scored that one, don't you?

Turnover, No. 11.

When Crawford's old team plays at the Garden tonight, it'll have the East's third-best record and the NBA's No. 1 mark (33-15) since Jan. 1. The Bulls are headed for the No. 4 seed in their first playoff appearance since Michael Jordan called Chicago sweet home.

Meanwhile, Crawford's first season in New York will end in another 11 days, making him 5-for-5. Five seasons. Five lottery appearances.

"They've all stepped up," Crawford said last night at the Meadowlands, referring to his former teammates. "They play really hard. Coach (Scott) Skiles really has them playing well."

But the Bulls' success without him also doesn't reflect well on Crawford, who was deemed expendable by GM John Paxson last summer. During his four seasons in Chicago, Crawford played for three coaches who didn't have the word "interim" before their title. All three tried to convince him that he didn't have to put the ball up the minute he stepped over the midcourt line. All three attempted to get him to play some semblance of defense. All three failed, miserably.



and on that note, i must go get ready for the game. will report back later in the thread. remember, let's keep it clean!

:wink:

go bulls!!!
