As nice as it was to see the Bulls get back into it -- for as lousy as Toronto has played this year, the Bulls just don't match up well with them -- I find it inexcusable that both Noah and Salmons were basically glued to the bench for the fourth quarter and overtime. Maybe Salmons was hurt or something, but Noah clearly was not, and Miller was laboring badly. Not to mention that Noah had been their most efficient offensive player for the first three quarters. What are you doing Vinny? You cost yourselves a game you could have easily stolen.

I had to give my fiance, Kirk some time at the end of the game. Pax told me to play Derrick. He said nothing about Salmons...he he he.

Where was Salomons at the end of the fourth quarter and all of overtime?? Why was Rose consistantly guarding Marion in overtime?? This was a terrible coach game.

One again VDN showed the world why he isn't qualified to coach a NBA team. Captain Klank played more minutes than John Salmons. Brad Miller played more minutes than Joakim Noah, who was having a great game before my cousin Vinny decided to bench him for most of the 2nd half and overtime. The Bulls should have one this game, but Vinny was determined to lose it.

The Bulls are really terrible in crunchtime. They always find a way to pi$$ away games. Nice loss Bulls. Toronto gets to celebrate their whopping 28th win.

And you are a typical Sox fan...of course you cannot recognize talent..you have no precedent. Now, as to why I didn't play Salmons at the end of the game...my man-love, Kirk is not as much 'fun' after games when he is on the bench too much. Why do you think I have started subbing for that darn rookie at about the middle point of the 1st quarter?
Did you notice that when Kirk the Kissable comes of the bench, I get that rook out of there, but when my baby started, and I brought that rookie in...I brought BG out so my lover man could get some more time.

Where was John Salmons???? Anyway, though I'm a little pissed about how they let the Raptors build a 18 point lead, I love how they fought back. Tyrus is learning....and I'm happy. I loved how didn't take that one shot and end passing off to Miller....THANK YOU!!!! I know Derrick is probably kicking himself for missing that layup...but they....sh*t happens. I'm proud of the come back...but that was a team they should have beaten.

I am a little pissed about the Bulls inability to play defense. I am also pissed that they can't win these close games. I am also pissed that the they lost to a horrible team. I am also pissed that Tyrus keeps jacking up 20 ft shots, which is about 15 ft out of his range.

I expect Salmons was hurt is why he wasn't in late in the game. He was not moving very well on defense - Kirk actually did an excellent job on defense which is why they got back in the game. I agree, give them credit for fighting back. It's pretty hard to win when the other team's front line scores 99 points.

I also didn't understand why Salmons was on the bench the entire fourth and OT.
Gordon hit the big shot at the end of the fourth, but he was also a big reason they sucked much of the game.
His incredibly selfish play AGAIN led to a nice-looking box score for him.
I was glad Neil Funk started to rip him after he blew a 2-on-1 fastbreak with Hinrich and luckily drew the foul before he hit just one of two.

Tough loss; good effort on the comeback. The Bulls have problems against tall athletic frontlines. They clog the driving lanes and make it difficult for dribble penetration. The Raptors look very good; they can't guard anyone. The Bulls looked slow for most of the game. I would have liked to see more of Noah, its tough to come in cold off of the bench and contribute.

That fast break reminded me of the game where he and Larry Hughes did the same thing on consecutive plays. We definitely needed his scoring but I think we see it is fool's gold. VDN needs to manage his players' minutes. Good to see Hilton Armstrong get a few minutes. VDN needs to play everyone.

The Bulls have problems defending everyone. One night some piece of trash guard is putting up a career high of 29, the next night it is the front line putting up 99. They can't defend anyone. That is why they will get crushed in the playoffs.

I'm the nicest guy in the world.
I don't want decent posters seeing your name at the end of ever thread and having you run them off. You seldom make any sense and made a fool of yourself with your pathetic Larry Hughes rants.
