Pretty much a must win. I'm confident that our guys will come out and take it up an extra notch at home. We need to use that home court to our advantage and come out of the gates and take it to ATL right from the beginning. This game 5 will most likely decide the series. We need this. We must want this. Everybody has to give it their all. Chicago is destined to be in the ECF this year and we can't let the Hawks be the reason we aren't there.
Let's overpower them with our defense and rebounding and play a good balanced game on both ends of the floor as a team.
Congrats to Noah for making the All-NBA Defensive Second Team!
Definitely. I think Deng could've made it to one of those teams too. If there were 3 All NBA Defensive teams, I think Deng could've been on it. Possibly Bogans too. He's been playing good defense all year.
I love Korver finishing games, however, he was repeatedly burned on defense by a much quicker Jeff Teague. Asik also committed key mistakes and was very limited as usual on offense. It would be interesting to see how coach Thibs would adjust in game 5.
I'm pretty sure we'll win tonight. Booz has to repeat his good performance from the last game. And again we need more power from the bench, especially from Korver. And Deng has to shoot better ... agree on here we need more offensive plays for the other guys around D-Rose.
