Terrible coaching by Del Negro. You don't run out of time outs at the end of a tight playoff game. Two games in a row he's done that.

Also, where was Tyrus Thomas at the end of the game. Miller had not done much and certainly wasn't helping with rebounding.

I agree, Dean, but the best thing the Bulls can do regarding this game overall is forget about it and move on. At the very least, we did take game one (on the road, no less).

this is where the bulls miss thabo the most. when you need to cover a big guard and need defense and rebounding from your backcourt, the bulls simply do not have the personnel. vinny is so poor, his team is making him look much better than he is. no way to get to the end of two straight playoff games without a timeout remaining. tyrus seems to be mesmerized by his childhood friend big baby...he can't function while playing him. why is tyrus not dunking the ball when he gets it under the rim? missing layup after layup, and all the dumb turnovers.
right now he is having a tough time dribbling the ball, even on breakaways. and where was the agressive attitude of rose in this game? he was too passive, passing the ball when he should have been shooting. all of this being said, the bulls are right there with the celtics....go bulls.

Dean is right on, especially regarding Tyrus's minutes: 6 blocks in only 20 minutes after coming up clutch on Saturday. I don't think Vinny is a terrible coach, but playing Miller 35 min and Tyrus only 20 is inexcusable. Tyrus is the Bulls' best defensive player, can hit the open j, and is great at the line. He needs to be in there down the stretch.

WHY WHY WHY was Tyrus not in the game during the 4th quarter??!! VDN you idiot. How many O-boards did they get on account of Miller having no ups and being extremely slow footed. And how many terrible TOs did Miller have? Why Miller? Please VDN, TYRUS THOMAS!!

Thabo, huh? Like the Miami game when he left Marion alone for the game winning dunk, right after he threw the ball to Wade on an inbounds play? No, they don't need Thabo. They needed to rebound better.

I'm pissed!! First off, we should be up 2-0. Secondly, why the hell didn't Tyrus play the last 6 mins of the 4th quarter?? VDN is an idiot! At least Tyrus could have changed some shots at the basket, grabbed some boards, and wouldnt have been afraid to shoot the ball! Miller look slow and timid on Off. and Def.! It was a missed oppurtunity BIG TIME!!!

Amidst all the excitement, one can only wonder what might have been had the Bulls coach had a timeout left - again! At what point will this guy figure out that timeouts at the end of the game are critical?

Great Game ! Tough loss, but we have to lok at the bright side of it, we are still waiting for Salmons & Kirk to show up, Rose in foul trouble & we lose on a last second shot. I feel with homecourt the Bulls should destroy Boston. Everyone keeps saying that the Celtics are playing bad, wrong the Bulls can really be that good.

No timeouts left & your hottest shooter on the bench, so make or miss he would not touch the ball anymore. Miller didn't give us anything, why is he on the floor. I know he played good during the regular season, but in the fourth Tyrus & Noah should be out there just like Rose. Against younger athletic bigs Miller is not going to produce, bc every slick move he makes the defender is quicker so the always get back in position.

I can see the Bulls winning the next three, they talk about stopping Pierce & Allen, but they cant stop Rose or Gordon. The refs stopped Rose lastnight.

BG BG BG, I know some of you hate this guys game, but he is a keeper. BG & Rose never play scared which I love. I hope Paxson realizes BG's value now & the value he has playing with a talented PG in Rose. They are the second highest scoring backcourt in the league only behind Carter & Harris.

This guy was amazing yesterday, big shot after big shot. He wasn't just scoring but scoring at will against two defenders. Plus his defense & intensity has pick up. Give the guy credit, he chased Allen around the entire game coming of good hard double & triple screens set by Perkins & Davis. For the most part your not going to keep Allen down all game as well as Gordon too. If Ben worked just as hard on defense as he does offense in the summer we have our starting sg.

We have to keep BG, he is a piece to the puzzle to be kept not given away, BG has b=never been the Bulls problem.

Bulls will sweep the next three games !
