I have never seen a bulls team so disorganized out of a timeout. Is Vinny drawing anything up?

Fun game to watch. Bulls blew in regulation; Celtics blew it in OT. Finally someone steps up and hits some clutch FTs.

Rondo is in his 3rd year, not 2nd. C'mon, writer-dude.

Tyrus Thomas and Ben Gordon really confuse me with their play sometimes. The Bulls are headed in the right direction but one of those 2 has to go. Neither has any concept of time and score. Good win though.

Tyrus almost cost them at the end of regulation. He should have given up the ball to a better FT shooter; Rose was right there.

Apparently, they don't know how to defend against Ray Allen either. It seems pretty simple to not leave him wide open. VDN needs to beat his players over the head with a stick until they understand never to leave him open.

A win is a win, but the Bulls played a sloppy game. TT has not clue. Trade him while you can.

Ben Gordon is GOD! Give him all the money he wants. Bulls will win this series in 7. Mark my words.

Did you even watch the game? Ben Gordon won this game with an assist from John Salmons. However, the Bulls' team doctors might want to look into getting Tyrus Thomas a brain transplant. He is as dumb as a drunk Charles Barkley.

Why was is it that when time was running out and everybody and their mother knew the Celtics were going to foul the guy with the ball that Tyrus Thomas stupidly held onto the ball like it was a recovered fumble?

I'll tell you why because Vinnie Del Negro is the absolute worst coach in the NBA. It's bad enough that he can't prepare himself to do his job like knowing when and when not to burn timeouts but he can't even prepare his players to be aware of what to do in one of the most frequent late game situations. Get the ball into the hands of your best free throw shooter!!! Del Negro is the worst hire in this town since Terry Bevington.

The Bulls made a lot of mistakes characteristic of being the young team that they are. I see it being very difficult, especially playing in Boston, for the Bulls to take this series away from The Celtics.

Tyrus Thomas is a complete moron.

Moron-a person with a mental age located between 8 and 12 on the Binet scale.

Gordon 22 points; Salmons 20.

But, how many points did Gordon's defense cost the Bulls?

Dump Gordon [sign and trade?] and put Salmons at shooting guard.

Get a solid power forward [in trade for Gordon plus whatever] and, if Deng can't hack it, trade him next year.

The Bulls should have wrapped it up in regulation. Poor free throw shooting by the Bulls didn't help.

But Boston was torching, everything was dropping for them what are you going to do? Boston deserves a lot of credit here.

Dudes, that was an exciting game. VDN is learning by fire here, and he's getting better.

WOW, what a game!! Salmons is truly the "Silent Assassin". Gordon was clutch too but played one-on-one ball again and NEVER looked to pass the ball up. I was shouting at him like crazy to give it up to Rose but that idiot is ****ing hard headed! Good thing he made that big trifecta but I still hate him.
