Bulls vs Nets 7:00pm on WGN

Let's face it.   If the Bulls want to have any hopes at the playoffs they need this game.   Not because a loss mathematically eliminates them, but if they can't beat the Nets at home, then they sure as hell aren't going to win the other important games left on the schedule.

Most significant thing about this game is that it's the first game I'll be taking my four year old daughter to.   She's been dying to go to a game ever since I took my eight year old to one earlier this season.  

Will Paige be the Bulls good luck charm?  I suspect so.   Bulls are undefeated while one of my children is in attendance.   I know huge sample size [two games]. 

Still, they need something.

As for the game itself, what's there to say.   The Bulls should outclass the Nets easily.  They are on a winning streak of two in a row, so who knows, maybe they're playing a bit better.   Their best player is probably Brook Lopez, but Brad Miller's the type of center who should do a credible job on him defensively.  

While the season is probably over already, the slim hope of the playoffs will keep me going for as long as it's there.

  • well pargo started, ahead of jj or law or flip. kinda odd but it seems to be working. isnt most of his playing time because he complained about his bench role a month or so ago

    JJ was hurt kevie

  • In reply to ZombieKevie:

    Two poor games for DRose. It is not a good sign. Your best player having no interest in the final run for the playoff's, it is sad. If he doesn't get his act together that may a sign of no heart...Just hope this is just temporaly and he will come back strong.

    good win i guess. Pargo had his one good game of the year lol. Rose struggled shooting but he was dishing the ball real well. I hope JJ plays tomorrow VS the pistons.

  • In reply to ZombieKevie:

    What got into Pargo tonight? He looked like Acie Law out there...haha.

    12/14 to close out the season or the Bulls don't make the playoffs.

    TRANSLATION: 43-39 record...That means 1 more loss.

    3 best thing of this season:
    Rose making the all-star game
    the continuing growth of Noah
    the steal of the draft in Taj Gibson

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    We blew out a team we should have blown out. Good job Bulls. One game at a time...

  • I don't see the passion. Looks like a step slower. Could be a sympton of nothing to play for. Or Del Negro want's to play so slow, that its actually affecting his game.

    But, If he is going to be the "leader" he needs to show it every night, specially in these final weeks. Just hope for a better approach against the pistons.

  • JJ needs to MAN UP and play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • In reply to izroca:

    or BEAT...haha.

  • In reply to izroca:

    Call it a hunch, but the Milwaukee Bucks could collapse down the stretch.

    9 more losses for them?

  • In reply to izroca:

    Does he know how to? We'll see.
