Nice to see the Bulls relevant again hopefully they can keep it going.


I'm not even remotely excited about the Mavs/Thunder although it should be an entertaining series I just don't follow any of those players.

It has started out pretty good.  I think it could be a really good series, a complete scorefest. Dirk and Durant are really the best scorers in the league.  They make shots from anywhere on the court.  I am starting to think Durant is probably better than Lebron, maybe Kobe too.  He is good.

I'm sure my bias is showing, but there's been a lot of fouls called against the Thunder when guarding Dirk that's complete bullshit. It doesn't help when you get done playing a series where anything goes in the paint, but this aMm is ridiculous. If the series is called by European basketball style standards there's no way the Thunder will win.

Meanwhile, Westbrook and Durant have 36 FT attempts between them. I'm sure all those were legit fouls as well.

Ticky-tack? Maybe. NOT fouls. Bullshit.

The game was horrible, though. There's nothing worse than a game with almost 100 ft's.

I'll agree with that. I'm fine with Dirk getting the benefit of the doubt when going to the basket or on his shot fakes, but when you can't battle for position on the blocks with him, there's no way to guard him.

Even with the officiating what he did was impressive tonight. Shooting like a combined 98% from the field and ft line is unheard of.

With Durant's free throw attempts, obviously he'll get some calls like Dirk will, but I thought he did a good job of attacking the rim.

I think it's retarded to "battle" dirk for position.  The risk isn't anywhere NEAR being worth the reward.  Oh. You pushed him out to 16 ft instead of 12 ft? It doesn't matter.  Just play him man up and hope he's having a poor shooting game.  He's too good of a player at this point to let him create opportunities for his teammates, which is what really drives the Mavs success. 

I'll go out on a limb and say dirk doesn't get more than 15 ft attempts in a game the rest of this series.  This crew was being overly zealous with the whistles all game, which is the only thing that enables Dirk to shoot THAT many ft's.  HOWEVER, these fouls are absolutely the same kind of fouls that Dirk rarely gets the benefit of the doubt from.  If fouls were called by the book, Dirk would have a much higher career FTA average.  He gets hit on the body/forearm consistently, but it's like the refs ignore it because he's a "big guy" and should be able to play through it.

But I digress...The mavs need to get more help from Kidd to win.  What you saw from Terry, Dirk, and Marion was about right.  But I don't like where Kidd's head is right now.  He's turning the ball over and afraid to take open shots.

You do realize Westbrook shot 18 free throws and Durant shot 19 last night don't you?

and he lit the Thunder up in the 1 or 2 games he played against the Thunder this year.

Going into the Series I didn't expect the Thunder to win the series and obviously I still don't think they can win it, just hoping for it to go 6 or 7 games. They have no one to guard Dirk. Durant is too skinny, Perkins too slow, Collison too small, and Serge is too young.



But I digress...The mavs need to get more help from Kidd to win.  What you saw from Terry, Dirk, and Marion was about right.  But I don't like where Kidd's head is right now.  He's turning the ball over and afraid to take open shots.

I think I'd take Kidd's mindset over Westbrook. Neither one are good shooters, except Westbrook thinks he is. Sometimes the regular season numbers don't lie and this is one of them. Although it looks like Westbrook should have an advantage over a Mav defender his shooting percentage against them is worse than his regular below average percentage. And let's not get into all of his pouting.

There's an excellent chance both series go 7.

I would be lying if I said I know who will win either.

So would you.

If the Bulls win tonight that series is over. They would then own the Heat this season to the tune of a 5-0 record. It would be very difficult to see Miami somehow turning that around and winning 4 of the next 5.

Bulls on a 17-6 run midway through the 4th to tie the game.  Heat have been riding Haslem too long.....they need some fresh players to finish this one.  Bulls are still going strong.  The announcers are starting to question Spoelstra for not resting Haslem.  They're playing like they HAVE to have this game......they do.

The Bulls play some stifling defense but their offense down the stretch needed to be something more beside Derek Rose just making aMm up.

Their offense would have been helped if Korver wasn't cold as ice and if Deng wasn't a turnover waiting to happen. I bet they split the Miami games.

i hope you guys got to see that game last night. that is how you ball, both teams. i could watch these two teams play every night.

Scott Brooks gained a lot of respect from me last night by leaving Westbrook on the bench the whole 4th. Not sure it was the best strategy but damn ballsy.

Probably the only real gripe I have with the reffing right now in the league is the fast break lay-up phantom foul. Dirk had a 3 point-play last night from a foul call and wasn't even touched. Durant just sort of waived at him on the way by. That aMm drives me crazy. I understand why they do it, sort of a league policy to protect players elevating to the rim but if there's no contact, the ref's shouldn't assume a foul.

I guess a sort of secondary complaint is the foul call when the defender goes for a pump fake. I think to get that foul call the offensive player should have to get into the defender when they are in the air and actually earn a foul. I don't really like it when they let the defender land next to them and then just sort of lean in and chuck the ball.

If Durant didn't tumble into the photographers after being fouled I'd say his dunk was better than Gibson's.





Right now people aren't sure if Westbrook was actually benched for being a little bitch when Brooks pulled him at the end of the third or if Brooks was sticking with a group that had a nice rhythm. I thought the decision made sense because Harden was playing good and it kept him as the second option. Westbrook wasn't playing bad during the game, but he still hasn't realized that this team is at its best when he is aggressive and looks to get others involved. Since having a triple double in game 7 didn't work, maybe the benching will. I am curious how everything will play out.

Oh my God, they just called a technical on Chandler for an elbow in Harden's face.  The problem is, Harden ran into Chandler to initiate the contact, and multiple slow motion replays showed there was no contact.  None, nada, nothing.  I hope Harden gets his ass fined for that flop.

After watching Westbrook for more than a passing moment tonight, I am now convinced that he is nothing more than an uber-talented Gary Ervin. While he has all the skills in the world, I still expect to see him run headlong into a brick wall... just because it's there, and to prove to Brooks that he can do it. Just go ahead and slap the retard-helmet on him.
