No its because the officials are intent on changing the game into the Celtics favor. Its pretty obvious which way all the calls are going.

Yeah, that was obscene. Refs swallowing their whistles as Bulls get mauled, and giving the Celtics every opportunity to stay in the game by changing calls and making phantom calls against the Bulls.

The officials changed the game so much that if it was called relatively close to fairly, Bulls would have won with double-digits.

I don't why I keep watching the NBA. It's the same story over and over. Officiating guiding the outcome for advertising revenue, and more entertainment value.

I am proud of the Bulls for fighting through the officiating. They will have to if they have any chance at taking the series from the Celtics. Keep up the good fight!

Garnett is a punk, he has nothing to do with the game yet he is swearing and pointing at the Bulls at the end of the game. Neither KG, Allen, Pierce deserve rings period! None of them could get a ring on their own respective teams and being the key player for their teams. So pull a Malone an lets go to the Lakers for a chance to win a ring. The Bulls should have won this game plain and simple. Offensive rebounds is what killled them.

Tough one to lose. Let's see what happens in Chicago. This is not the same Boston team as last year. They are definitely beatable.

Bull were giving up 2nd chance points because the Celtics were pushing in the back on rebounds. They were doing it all night. That's why they got to so many offensive boards. Bulls did a good job keeping it close without getting any calls.

Lets see how Boston plays in Chicago. Big Baby's not going to hit those shots on the road.

Rose should have been more aggressive with Rono hurting.

I agree with many posters, the refs blew some calls big time, but the Bulls also let all five Celtic Starters score double figures and when that happens, the odds of a team winning go down significantly. However, this Bulls team is playing with incredible fire and heart. If the core of this team stays together and healthy, there's a legitimate shot of beating Boston and the 2009/2010 season is already looking like a 50 plus win season.

I WONDER if paxson is getting a contract formulated for ben gordon this offseason...its pretty clear that they dont win game 1 without him (12 in the 4th quarter)...and arent even in the game at all without him tonight...one question, what the hell does vinny do with all his timeouts?

I agree......Garnett scowling, cursing and point at the Bulls after the game was too much. Really, how good can the Celtics feel barely winning game 2 on a last second shot?

i can agree with you on garnett and pierce...but ray allen is a class act, one of the best shooters of all time, and probably one of the best teammates in the league...the only reason he couldnt win because he played in milwaukee, and then seattle...two cities who didnt really put forth an effort to win...all superstars need another star to win.

When Big Baby hit that 10th jumper, it's time to run him off those shots and make him dribble the rock. D*MN we were close to victory.

What a stupid comment, they don't deserve rings??? They didn't engineer the trades that brought them to Boston you idiot. What was Garnett supposed to do, void the trade and stay with the Wolves? He's all about winning, like him or not.

Were the Celtics fans sitting beneath the Bulls baskets waving Red Kerr signs to distract our free-throw shooters? If so, how disgusting.
