Now, I would call this a good win. They actually crushed a pretty good team.

Trading for Salmons while holding on to Tyrus Thomas? Paxson for EXECUTIVE of the YEAR!!!!

Looks like the Heat are fading, and it is about the Bulls gaining favorable playoff positioning. Knowing this forum, I hear the people saying "what use is it making the playoffs". The playoffs are about matchups, and the Bulls can beat Orlando. After that anything can happen. I like the way the basketball moved, everyone was involved. Brad Miller is getting careless with the ball and turning it over. Rose had a good floor game, everyone stayed alert as he was distributing the ball.

Every win is a good win. The Heat are a mediocre team with a superstar player.

Great Los Bulls win! They sure seem to be playing like a real team since they got Salmons and Miller and now that Hinrich is playing more. Also getting rid of Hughes and Gooden has been a positive. Rookie coach or not you've got to give Vinnie and his staff some credit for the much improved play of the team; particularly the young guys.

I hate to sound like Debbie downer, but just think where the Bulls would be if they didn't blow so many games this year. Yet, you gotta like how they are playing now. The announcers were speculating about how the lineup would change when Deng returns. Not much IMO, Deng would ride that bench like a player on a 10 day contract. Salmons deserves all the playing time he can stand. I have lost respect for Deng, he'd have to PLAY his way into my good graces if I coached the Bulls.

It was awesome seeing a game for once, and what a game it was! Hopefully they can keep it up, especially with a good schedule.

I think Ben Gordon has lost all of his leverage in negotiating with the Bulls. PSA. "If you are ever offered $50 mil., take the money"! The jury is still out on Pax. The test comes after the season. Do you re-sign Ben for less money, and what do you do with Kirk? Kirk has proven in the last couple of games that he has value. In the course of the season; all teams recognized the need for depth. The more players you have that can contribute the better your chances.

Great win. They moved the ball very well and when the Heat looked to make a run the Bulls were successful in not giving up the big lead.

Deng becomes a part of the rotation. He can guard, rebound and he can score. Salmons would start; but Deng will get minutes as soon as he is healthy. There is pressure on him to perform, and the coach has the luxury of controlling his minutes if he doesn't produce. Think depth and experience, and I smell first round upset!

Salmons may be the best player on the team.

Hopefully, Gordon's minutes will go down once Deng gets back.
Gordon stunk again tonite and only was able to pad his stats with a couple of 3s after the outcome had been determined.

This was the best game of the season for this team. They've been playing well lately and I hope they keep the 7th spot or even move up to the 6th; that would be en-bull-ievable

Excellant 3rd quarter...and the first time I didn't see Tyrus throw up that wack shot. John Salmons is the truth....say hello to the bench Luol. lol

We should not forget that when healthy Deng adds a lot and the rotation needs him. The negative comments will quickly turn positive and Deng IS a complete player. He has been unlucky with injuries but there is no real reason to doubt that he will be healthy soon.Go Bulls.

I do not agree. Coming from behind and beating a terrible OKC team was not a good win. It was a win, which is better than losing. However, a good win speaks to the manner in which they won. Sometimes you have to look beyond the score and see how a team won.

The Bulls have all the tools to make a run this year. I wish I knew what made the lightbulb click with them but whatever it was, they look damn good and i am rapidly adjusting my expectations

Slow down a minute; if Salmons added rebounding and assists to his game then you might be able to make an argument. Salmons has been a valuable addition to the team as a scorer. The best player on the team is Rose.
