Wow, what a terrible game to lose. 11 point lead with 8 minutes left and we blow it. This series should have been ours, but we play the most shotty 'D' in the league.
Rose was costly late. Miller was awful early, moves like his feet weigh 100 lbs each (and he missed those throws).
What can I say about Ben Gordon.....he might be one of the dumbest and selfish players out there. Yea he made that go ahead basket at the end of regulation, but with a 1 second differential between shot clock and game clock (with 15 seconds left?), that ball has to be held for the last shot. He forced everything, and yea he made some tough shots, but they are terrible looks. If Tony Allen wasn't an idiot, Ben Gordon would be a goat tonight.
Pierce was too tough tonight, would have been nice to see a double team and make someone else beat you....
The only guys who played tonight were Hinrich, Noah, and Salmons. Let's try and pick up the 'W' in Chicago on Thursday.

After the bulls were blown out in Boston i really thought this series was over. I give the Bulls alot of credit, they are alot better then i thought. This is a series ill remember for a long time.
May the best team win and good luck to both this has been a delight to watch.

Hey Chicago, the Bulls are a B- team and the Celtics are an A team without Garnett. Don't feel bad about losing, you did better than anyone expected.

Blaming the officiating or other stuff is silly. The Bulls lost and the World Champions won.

Get rid or you coach, gordon, and noah and maybe then you can play with the big boys, until then be happy you have done as well as you have.

Paul Pierce is Money and Gordon is pocket change.

It's over. The Bulls have no chance in this series whatsoever. None. Zero. It is OVER.

Who cares. The NBA is fixed.
Lakers and Cavs in the finals.
It has already been determined.
It's all about the ratings.
Everyone else should just go home.
Someone should investigate this league.
I can't believe nobody calls the NBA on it either.
I hate this game.

Coaching question...
If Miller left the floor due to being fish hooked wouldn't another player be able to take the foul shots? If so, Vinny made another rookie coach mistake

True but the Celtics choose who they want shooting & not only that but Brad Miller wouldnt have been able to return to the game had the game been tied (with the free throws) and went into 2x OT...

Bulls in 7

Doc Rivers would have picked the person to shoot.

Looking back in hindsight that might have been the way to go... but nobody knew that before.

Rondo Karate chops Miller in the Mouth

Celtics have to CHEAT to win nowadays.

Celtics got nothing on Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

In hockey if you draw blood it's a major penalty sometimes a game suspension. Does the NBA want Boston to continue on in the NBA playoffs that bad that the officials swallow their whistles when blood is drawn. Unbelievable. Bulls aren't really a young team except Derrick Rose who still gets no calls getting hammered going to the basket. Somehow they need to learn to finish. And stop Rondo from getting to the basket without being touched. Put Hinrich, TT, even Linton Johnson on Pierce because Pierce just owns Salmons.

It's too bad it had to come down to Rondo getting away with playing dirty. The Bulls should have put it away when they were up by 10 with less than a quarter to play.

If Dwight Howard gets a suspension for the Elbow, then Rondo Should also get a suspension.

Both were cheap shots. Rondo was never going for the ball.

"until then be happy you have done as well as you have."

You do realize, ZEviLL, that the Celtics are beyond fortunate to have won more than one game thus far. The Bulls have given this series away. Boston isn't going anywhere when it's over anyway.

What a bunch of babys..u guys had every chance to win this game. You were up by 11 with 8min to go and you gave it away. There were just as many bad calls made on both sides. I for 1 think the last 2 calls on Ray Allen were a joke. And i dont see how you can say Rondo wasnt going for the ball there? he was try to swat at it but when bringing his hand back cought him in the mouth.. big deal. Miller had his chance to tie it and did a horible job at that. Jezz, i thought NE fans were tuff on there teams. you guys cant give you team any credit for putting up a great challenge to world champions.
since alot of you are making predictions on the finals i will say Denver will play Celvland and the league is not riged. give me a break!

why can't people see what a loser b miller is. In every game he has turnovers at critical times and last night even though he makes millions of $, he can't hit a free throw. That pathetic drive looked like an elephant it was so slow
Some stand up to this loser because he will cost the bulls the series

The rule states that if the player who was fouled is unable to shoot the freethrow,due to injury, then the oppossing coach picks the player he wants to shoot the freethrows.
