"The Celtics' Glen Davis, who is 6 feet 9 inches, 289 pounds, dived into the crowd for a loose ball in the third quarter. Scientists believe this kind of impact wiped out the dinosaurs."

LOL..i love this!! anyway, good game and we are now back to UC
Bulls, make it 3-1 before we head back to Boston!!!!

Bulls were better in every statistical category but rebounding where they were pilloried. Yet they still lost. That doesn't bode well.

Bring on those MF'ers! They play like that at the UC, and the Celtics have a lot to worry about.

1. what happened to rose being 'aggressive'? sure bg was hot but that's not what won us the game saturday. on top of that their 2 bigs were in early foul trouble and penetrating would have exploited that. instead they both went on to have career games.

2. someone tell brad miller to shoot the frikin ball after he gets the ball off the pick. who does he think he is, amare stoudemire?? i counted at least 3 or 4 turnovers just from him running into the middle and doing god knows what, leading to a rondo fastbreak and a bucket or stupid foul.

3. why does it seem like joakim noah is always the retard that gets picked on at the end of the game to make the last defensive stop... hmmmmm hack with two seconds left saturday, slow help off the pick today...

time to resort back to saturday's game plan..... good talk

Why are you on this site? You must be the biggest loser on earth. Just leave already... What the heck is wrong with you? Bulls in 5. There is no way in heck the Celtics will will in the UC the way they've been playing the first 2 games. remember the bulls are a horrible road team and SHOULD be up 2-0 now. Go Bulls and Get out of here Tiffany. The only person that claims to be in IL not rooting for their home team. Have some pride and just leave!

The big play was in the fourth quarter with 2:30 remaining when Bulls were up 4 and had chance to go up 6 or 7 but Gordon took crazy shot and missed and Celts came down and scored then Miller had one of his many turnovers Kdub talked about and instead of being up by six or seven the game was tied. That is the problem with Gordon, when he is hot no one else gets in the game and he takes some wild shots. If you noticed, Rose's big night happened in the flow of the offense. Bulls always lose when Gordon goes off. What is up with no timeouts again, didn't learn after it almost burned you in game #1.

the only thing that should be talked about over the bulls days off is how to box out...gordon had the bulls in the game, but how in the hell do you let a team get 21 offfensive rebounds?

Noah should be no different than any other employee in that he should be drug tested for acting erratically on the job. The Joke chose a soft layup and of course botched it when a slam was in order on a key play, and consistently was pushed out of position on the defensive boards.

And anytime Vinny figures out its a bad idea to allow Rondo to get to the defensive free throw line before picking him up is OK with me.

Maybe you missed it, but it looked like Noah was pushed away from the basket on that play and was forced into an awkward layup attempt. He plays hard and he is learning.

The key to the game was Boston's offensive rebounding and it was becasue the Bull's bigmen were coming out to help on defense and were not in position to make rebounds on the weakside. One defensive rebound in the last minute could won the game for the Bulls.

thank you mike!!! somebody who actually knows what's going on. it's great that Gordon made a bunch of shots but why is it so hard for him to understand the flow of the offense??? stop forcing shots and pass the ball. you will get enough shots if you let the game come to you.

Great to see an article like this about the Chicago Bulls again. If only for one night, it felt like the 90's. 0-60 mph is bank on. Let's hope it continues.

2 games in a row where the Bulls hot shooter did not have the ball with the game on the line. Coaching perhaps?

I saw it and also listened. I saw a clumsy double-clutch when he sensed a defender and an attempted layup when he should have slammed it, where he likely would have drawn a foul.

If The Joke was pushed - the ref, who is staring at them, didn't see it and the broadcasters didn't mention a foul. But the broadcasters did indicate that Noah "should have went strong..." Precisely.

Show me a guy billed as "high energy" and I'll show you a bum who runs fast down the court, but a bum none-the-less. And while he's "learning" the Celtic forwards will continue to be in superior position for rebounds.

Loving this series. This is more fun than the Heat sweep a couple years ago even with the loss. I don't get the hate on JN on this board. Dude killed on the glass in game 1, had an off game 2 but still plays hard. I hope the UC is ROCKING on Thursday. If we rebound, we win. And somebody please keep RR out of the lane once in a while. He's their best player, not Allen or Pierce.

lol, the Bulls nearly made it 2-0.
Have guys seen KG talking trash on national T.V.?
I'm sure he'll regret that.

Go Bulls- Destined to win 4-1 on this series.
