If Garnett is REALLY out for the series I believe this is anybody's series, particularly if they can shock the celts and catch them by surprise in the first game.
Of course, if the Celts bus breaks down and they have to forfeit a game, or the Celts entire team is suddenly hit with a vicious flu bug, and BG gets defensive player of the series, the Bulls will win also.
But seriously, IF Garnett is out for the series, AND the bulls can steal game one, it is on to the 2nd round. where is stephen? I need to place another bet.
Garnett will play.
Probably next game.

I don't like the Bulls chances at all against the Celtics, K.G. or no K.G. Boston has such a strong defensive unit and half court skills, that the Bulls have not played well at all, against those type teams. The Orlando matchup would have been so much better for the Bulls. I actually could have seen a possible upset had the Bulls got the Magic instead of the Celtics.
However, we saw the makeup of the Bulls against the Raptors the last game of the regular season. That game still eats at my crawl. To allow a team playing for absolutely nothing to come into their house and beat them down, when so much was on the line for the Bulls tells me all i need to know. The Bulls are a team that must play at 100% mentally and physically, and if they don't, there's not a team in the league that can't beat the Bulls.
That said, i think the Bulls go out in 4 straight. It's just a really bad matchup and with the first two games in Boston, the Bulls will be in a 0-2 hole before they even get a chance. The sad thing is, i truly believe had the Bulls got Orlando instead, that series would have gone 7 games with a winner take all in game 7.
Unfortunately, the Bulls forgot that game 82 is just as valuable as all the other games, and when the Bulls bow out meekly to the Celts, just remember the real culprit was the Bulls either felt the Cavs would do their work for them by beating the 76's in their game 82, or else the Bulls figured Toronto wouldn't jeapordize a draft spot and would come out going through the motions. We saw which team went through the motions, and their reward is the Boston Celtics.
Are you trying to put people in comas, Vanilla Rod?

I have been saying the same thing. They were hoping they could win the series without him, but I feel that as soon as that is in jeopardy (and that seems to be as of today) he will get healthy quickly.
