Bulls Missing a point

United States

#1 May 2, 2009
At around the 8:30 mark of the 1st QTR, Gordon hit a clear 3 pointer but the Bulls were only given 2 points. He is currently listed as 2 of 4 on three point shots but TNT just showed some Gordon highlights and you can see him hit 3 CLEAR 3 pointers.

No wonder the Celtics are leading .. Bulls play is so simple to defend in this game so far. Rose dribbles the ball to their court .. pass to the Center (Miller or Noah) who is standing by the free throw line and then have the other players run around pretending like they are running a play and have the Center create by dribbling to the basket or taking a jump shot from there. RESULT: numerous turnovers ... big lead by Celtics!! Serously .. Vinnie, do you really need a bunch of assistant coaches to "design" those very unique and creative plays? Having the C dribble/create from the free throw line? awesome!!!!

Wow, a 22-1 run by the Celtics to end the quarter and the Bulls score just ONE point over the final 8:10 of the first half. I hate to say it, but I think this one is over.

Good effort in the series and it bodes well for next season, but the Celtic veterans won't give it up this time.

Good building foundation. They showed guts and they are very young.

When BG came out scoring I knew it was trouble. No one else got involved and as soon as he cooled off the Bulls struggled scoring. The 3rd quarter approach was the way the Bulls should have opened the game and Gordon has to learn to let the game come to him.

The lack of defensive rebounding was also a huge factor. Way too many 2nd shots for the Celts.

But it was a great series; something I honestly didn't expect at the start of the season, and they fought until the very end.

When you have to resort to blowing at and shouting at players when they are shooting threes you deserve to get beat. Miller is a joke.

7/23 for BG. He loses as many games as he helps win.

For all the BG haters on here now, Chicago would not be in a game 7 without BG as well as Salmons. The real story of game 7 was turnovers.

Ben Gordon creates shots for nobody but himself and plays no defense!! He can go and take Luol with you!

It was a good season. They need to sign Ben Gordon, get rid of kirk and go get Paul millsap. If they do these things and the bulls are in the finals next year. I don't know what should come of Deng.

Lucky,

Way to talk smack when the series is over.

And if we are going to get into players acting like punks after they make a play, I'm pretty sure there were plenty on both sides who were doing that.
