lol, I'm bringing back the official threads folks! what a blast from the past. Hopefully this will keep all info on this game in the same place. I'm sure this will make several people happy.
:)

With a day off between Friday's game and today, the team has had a full day to practice and work out the kinks. And those kinks reside on both the offensive and defensive end. The big news... JWIll is slated to make his official debut for the Bulls. And all eyes will be on JWill. I can't wait. Craw traveled to Seattle yesterday to attend his sister's wedding, but will be returning in time for today's game.

Meyers mentioned that on the offensive end, he's giving his players the freedom to do their own thing. This hands-off approach will continue to reveal the inexperience of JC, Chandler, and Curry, but it's exactly what they need to go through in order to gain experience. He mentioned this freedom will be restricted during the regular season when the full roster is present. This is their time to shine. Make it happen baby Bulls!!

I'm wondering what the lineup will be, like if they will put Hassell at SF and Craw at SG. I'm not even sure Jay is gonna start, and if he does he'll probably play limited minutes....:( I hope Baxter makes the team. We need a bruiser down low. I can't wait til Halloween!

The game with Phoenix should be a good test. First of all, this is the second summer league Phoenix has taken part in. Secondly, they have a very talented roster. We may get an indication as to how much TC and EC haveimproved as Phoenix will have Tsakilidis, Amare Stoudamire and Voskuhl at 4 and 5. Good competition there. Also, they have explosive scorers in Casey Jacobson and Joe Johnson on the wings. Milt Palacio has been a steady pg during his time in the NBA, a decent test for JWill and JC. Can't wait to hear SUS's report.

I was hoping for the Bulls to go undefeated through the league.

SALT LAKE CITY -- The Phoenix Suns, led by Milt Palacio's 20 points, overcame a 16-point deficit in the first half to spoil Jay Williams' Chicago debut, by defeating the Bulls 81-72 in day three at the Rocky Mountain Revue on the Campus of Salt Lake Community College.

Williams, seeing his first action for the Bulls, got off to a fantastic start by scoring four points and assisting on two other baskets to lead Chicago to a quick 8-1 lead. Phoenix clawed there way back into the game after Williams was pulled out of the game, but after a few minutes rest, the top pick out of Duke led the team to a hefty 31-17 first quarter lead.

Jamaal Crawford continued the hot shooting for the Bulls, scoring five second quarter points to give him 12 in the first half. The Suns got strong first half effort from veteran center Jake Tsakalidis. The third-year pro collected eight points to lead the team. However, Chicago continued to control the tempo and went into the locker room with a 50-36 half time lead.

Phoenix came out on fire in the third quarter, led by the outside shooting of Milt Palacio and a few mental breakdowns by Chicago. A technical foul by coach Pete Myers and a flagrant foul by Dalibor Bagaric gave Phoenix a big boost toward the end of the period. The Suns took a 61-60 lead on a ferocious wrap-around dunk by Amare Stoudemire. Palacio scored ten points for Phoenix in the quarter.

The teams kept it close to start off the final quarter. Phoenix used strong inside play by Stoudemire and Tsakalidis to creep ahead of the Bulls. Chicago responded by losing their cool. A technical foul by Tyson Chandler with just over two minutes helped take the wind out of the Bulls' sails. Steady ball control and several chances at the free throw line sealed the deal for Phoenix.

Stoudemire scored 19 for Phoenix, as well as pulling down eight rebounds. Eddy Curry tallied 18 points for Chicago, and Williams ended the game with 11 points and two assists.

Chicago will face the Portland Blazers on Monday, July 22 at 6 p.m. The Suns have a day off and return to action on Tuesday, July 23 against the Dallas Mavericks at 8 p.m.

-----------------

Curry 18 and they didn't say. Which is probably how Curry's stats will be listed for a while. :)
JWill 11 and 2? Just 2 assists? Maybe he is a 6'1" SG?

I'm concerned about TC's tech though. I doubt the starters where in the game a lot in the 2nd half though. 50point 1st half. then 25-10 in the 3rd followed by only 12 more points in the 4th? No. I don't think so.

LOL Mike, I was just on Real GM and there's widespread panic amongst the 12 year old posters over there. Sounds like the Bulls really controlled the first half as they were up by double figures most of the way.
