I hope ur right man. We shall see. DRose should dominate whoever guards him from the magic. Hopefully someone steps up and plays good D on Howard or he gets into foul trouble. I'd tell DRose to attack the lane and try to get Howard into serious foul trouble. Without him manning the paint they aren't really a strong defensive team. We'll see what happens. Our guys should attack the rim early and often and then hopefully some guys hit some open jumpers and maybe some threes. Defensively we have to limit their 3 point shooting and somehow contain Howard.
2 Fouls not called on Orlando. 1 not called on the Bulls.
3 Defensive 3 second not called on Orlando.
3 illegal screens on Orlando.
1 illegal offense on the Bulls.
MAYBE thats better than the 1st? I think the refs are just letting the game move along.
I am not exadurating any numbers. When the Bulls are out of the game, I love counting refferee errors. I only consider the foul if a player was pushed or hacked, I'm not counting the bad handchecks or boxes, thats nitpicking IMO.
OMG.... I just realized that we're looking at this starting lineup.
Pargo(VDN thinks Pargo>Flip maybe for good reason, Flip went cold when Pargo got hot.)
Richards(Miller has been day-to-day for 2 months now, but still playing. He might come off the bench in a legitimate attempt to get him rest.)
VERY realistic possibility, for 1 or 2 games. And if Taj's foot acts up on top of everything else...
....Lions, Tigers, and Bears...........
as someone who lives in toronto,
this is like the raptors season last year.. except worse because the bulls actually had a chance to be decent/good this season...
just a lot of bad luck...
but sometimes youve got to hit rock bottom before you can reach the top... right?
It's all good. I'm not going to stop watching, basketball is still entertaining.
Joe Alexander is rusty as hell, but damn, he's trying. I love it. JJ is getting PT and he's fun to watch. You can tell James's weight problem was part of his sloppiness, as he looks to have dropped 15lbs of fat since his Bulls debut, and he's getting better because of it. As a true Bulls fan, you need to find the bright side. We aren't in a rebuilding phase, just unlucky as all hell.
