It's almost game time in Indiana, and hopefully the Bulls will show up and play a complete game tonight.

If Derrick Rose decides to show up and not play like he's made of bondo, the Bulls can win this one.

If he does something like another 15 points of 5/20 shooting with 5 assists and 6 turnovers, the Pacers will continue to be the last undefeated team in the NBA.

I'll be here all night, in this article and in the comments. Come on and join me so I'm not talking to myself all night.

4th quarter: Nazr with some great defense, Hinrich and Dunleavy and Deng taking care of the offense. The Bulls bench, which is much-maligned by idiot Bulls fans who obviously don't know talent when they see it, has been winning this game for the Bulls almost single-handedly.

Let's hope people start to call out Derrick Rose for playing like shit, if he would have come back last season like every other player in sports history, he wouldn't still be all rusty.


3rd quarter: A slow start offensively, but the defense still looking good.

The Bulls will win this game by 10 if the officials don't steal it from them. Some of these calls have been downright disgusting.

Huge finish to the quarter for Deng and Hinrich, got the Bulls right back in the game.


2nd Quarter: Deng coming out and dominating the 2nd quarter on offense, he and Gibson (with assists from Hinrich)  single-handedly getting the Bulls back into the game.

If the Bulls would quit turning the ball over, they'd have a big lead. Gibson and Hinrich playing outstanding ball this quarter. Rose looking good until he forces things, he needs to quit playing so selfish on offense.

Maybe this is the game in which the Bulls finally decide the regular season has started.

1st Quarter:

Nice first shot by Deng, the offense looks bad the first two possessions, though.

    Don Ellis started covering sports professionally when he was 15. The same year (1980), as a student assistant at Seeger Memorial High School in West Lebanon, IN, he was one of the first in the world to use, study and implement analytics in basketball. He attended Daytona State College and Ball State University, and some of his past credits include InsideHoops (NBA Runaround: The NBA According to Ellis) and ESPN Florida (The Florida Sports Reporters), where he was fortunate enough to work with many rising stars, including NFL Network's Dan Hellie, Redskins coach Jay Gruden, Magic radio and TV personality Dante Marchitelli, and WSB-TV (Atlanta) Sports Director Zach Klein. In addition to running the Bullsville blog and officiating basketball, baseball and football for the KHSAA, he is also a bass player and vocalist who writes and produces music in his spare time (you may remember his internet hit "I Hate Eddy Curry"). He's a 3rd-generation Cubs fan, a Bulls fan since the days of Van Lier and Sloan, and a life-long New England Patriots fan. He's seen Primus 9 times and thinks Les Claypool walks on water. By far his greatest accomplishment is being a father of three and grandfather of one.
