Re: Rose is not immune from criticism...
Tough game to watch. One of the toughest losses I had to witness this year.
With that being said the Knicks needed to have Melo have his best game of the season, play the best team defense they've played all season long, Rose to be extremely rusty and not 100%, the Bulls to have a lot of turnovers, Boozer Noah and Deng to all score below their season averages to only manage to win by ONE point.
Not worried about it. Confident that we can beat anyone in the league in a seven game series.
The beginning of the game was horrendous. I don't understand why it took Thibs so long to modify the lineup to matchup with what the Knicks had on the court.
A lineup of Noah, Deng, Brewer, Hamilton and Rose should have been the lineup to matchup against Chandler, Melo, Fields, Smith and Shumpert.
Hopefully the coaching staff makes the necessary adjustments.
Rose and Co. will play better.
I see us blowing them out tomorrow night.
