Is this possible? Allowing 40 points in the fourth quarter? Where was the coach?

It's not the 40 Philly pts in the 4th qtr or the blown 20 pt lead in the 4th qtr that's amazing. What's amazing is that 22k showed up in 30+ degree weather to watch that debacle. When will the fans learn. If you want change, stop showing up. Some games with less than 10k in the stands will wake management up. Not sure what people are going to see anyway. It's March. If you want entertaining basketball, watch the college tournaments.

the capt. got burnt on defense.. of course. why do they love this guy.

why didn't boylan stick with the big guard lineup of hughes and sefolosha. defensively thats your best guard combo. Hinrich is a horrible defender and turns the ball over like crazy. he gave the sixers the momentum with all of those turnovers and defensive lapses...now duhon could have spelled hinrich for at least five minutes during his turnover circus. I must say though..when we finally get it together pn defense the young bulls look intriguing.

Why not bench Kirk Hinrich and play Chris Duhan the next game since Kirk is playing so poorly, especially considering how much money he is making? Of those 5 guards, whoever played poorly should be benched the next game.

Jim Boylan is one of the worst coaches I have ever seen...he is a clown and has no clue on how to run a NBA team...it's obvious this guy has no business being on an NBA bench...

i disagree with the boylan comments. i actually like the guy. his rotations are better than skiles, whose only knock from me is he stays with himlich. must be the money. it comes down to the players chemistries making a nice team of good guys, but they can't win in the nba.

You'll notice the coach of the 76ers said the Bulls went with a small lineup in the fourth quarter and did not play Aaron Gray. Now the guy is no superstar by far, but he presented problems for Philly earlier in the game. So you have to attribute the loss where it belongs -on Boy-lan. He coaches like he has a boys team anyhow. Duhon, who is a college graduate with 4 years pro experience is referred to as "a kid". The Bulls are not expected to perform like men because they are all kids. So when you have kids and you go to a small lineup - what happens - you have a bunch of small kids out there that can't guard anyone. Like grade schoolers against the high school team. It seems like Duhon and Noah want to regress back to college days anyways because they would have won more games this year. Remember the motto "the kids can play"? We need a new motto "the kids need to grow up". Losing a 16 point lead in the fourth quarter has to be a record for futility. Hin-rich may be rich but he is not the player he used to be. Scoring is down, defense is down, fouls are up. Can't guard their little guy - come on. Gordon is a scorer but not a defender. Hughes used to play defense but that was three years ago. So you get what you ask for when you play these guys at the same time - the worst loss in Bulls history. Sefolosha with the sore groin played better so you can also say that it is a lack of balls.

Bye, Bye Boylan. You're not an NBA ready head coach. This team is soft mentally. Have Kirk and Ben Gordon pack their bags. Wake up!! The worse loss of the year!!

it has been said here about 3 times already, but why the heck did boylan not put in duhon? this lose lies squarely on the coach's shoulders. period. exclamation point. thank you.
