DRose goes off for 40+ Bulls win 101 -96. This game solidifies Rose as MVP. Now on to more urgent matters, who is clutch for Heat. I would put the Ball in DWade hands i thought that a couple of years ago he made @least 3-4 game winning shots, plus he has that take over-a-game mentality, thats needed, get's to the line whenever he wants to. So Miami should put ball in his hands @ the end of games, i believe Heat are 1-12/or 1-15 in clutch situations. When a shot is needed to tie or win ball game.
I can't see Rose going off for 40 points against the Heat... They're a hedge team and trap all pick and rolls.
I'd much rather Rose attack when the opportunity is there, but to move the ball... I'll say he ends the game with 23 points and 11 assists.
I'd put the ball in Wade's hands when the game is on the line as well. LeBron is a great fourth quarter player, but isn't all that great taking game winning shots. I'd let Wade take the game winners.
I dont think DRose goes off for 40+, more like 27... and it's a low scoring game. We're talking about 2 of the best field goal % defenses in the league.. I think the score is around 91-88 either way. Close game and either team could come out on top.
i just recalled the last statment game he had against the Spurs. Emotion got the best of me, how about 27/12/6rebs
I think it will come down to the bench players again. The Bulls bench has been coming up huge lately, especially Asik, and the Heat don't have one. I think Noah has a big game and neither team reaches 100.
ill say he will get 20+ points just to make it simple
Hope for a Bulls win... All I know is that it's going to be a low-scoring game... but it's gonna be a good one... DRose for MVP!
hell do what the elite pg have done all year against the heat and thats get a w i look for 25 and double digit assist for d rose i totally agree that wade should have the ball in his hands at the end of games actually i cant stand the heat so let lbj have it so i know theyll lose lol
god damn it why can't mike miller freaking hit anything. SO annoying just make your god damn wide open 3 pt shots!!!
mike miller is shotting 42% from 3 this season, i would say he is doing his job in that department.
does anybody else hear that super annoying kid in the background
Mike Miller can't make them when they count though.
Crucial missed rotation by Boozer. Bulls' defense breaks down at the wrong time and gives up two key buckets to Mario Chalmers out of all players.
Not to mention 2 costly turnovers and a forced play/airball from Rose after 3 clutch shots..not over..
NOT A FOUL
That was clearly a foul... Deng was pushed in the back.
Heat should've secured the rebound.
I'm eager to see who takes this game winner for Miami... Let's see just how clutch LeBron is.
a lot of questionable calls today for both sides, but more against the heat.
The answer is... BOTH of them. Both LeBron and Wade missed lol.
A true superstar holding himself accountable for his three mistakes.
I just hate how Bron is gonna take the blame for this just like the other losses when he had the best game of anyone on the floor, just couldn't make one shot...D wade needs the ball in the clutch, but LeBron needs to be taking even MORE shots the rest of the game.
It'd be dumb to blame LeBron for the loss, but...
He's the best player in the league and he had a one on one isolation versus a center... He has to make that shot!
Bulls 3-0 against the Heat this year, a fairly big statement if they happen to meet in the post season!
The Heat have two superstars and one All-Star, but the Bulls have a better overall team.
The Bulls just have more chemistry and have more cohesion. A superstar in Rose who's humble and unselfish. A great second option in Boozer. A solid second or third option in Deng, who's been reliable at both ends all season and during the clutch. Role players who do their jobs in Noah, Bogans, Korver, Asik, Gibson and Watson.
This Bulls team can make it to the Finals. They defend and will be able to grind out games come playoff time.
I fully agree..it's just so frustrating. Even LeBron has confidence issues, kinda crazy with that ego. You know he CAN make these shots, he has before. He just has lost all confidence. I did like the resilience I saw from the heat though. And I would still pick them in a series.
Changed my mind...Rose is a very solid MVP candidate in my mind
The Bulls have had Noah miss 30 games and Boozer around 15-20 so D-Rose has been immense as his main back up then was Deng. I'm liking D-Rose more and more for MVP as this season goes on.
if heat and bulls meet in the playoffs, i would still put my money on the heat despite bulls winning the regular season.
I don't know... IF the Bulls can get homecourt advantage, this gets real interesting.
would be a very fun series, seeing probable mvp rose battling past mvp lebron.
For the Heat I actually like them better on the road and its come down to will the MENTALLY turn it around once the playoffs hit right now they look like they can be beaten in the 1st round, but you don't know since they still have Lebron and Wade and how everything changes in the playoffss
I'm surprised Lebron tried to drive with the left hand on the last shot, he ended up throwing up an ugly shot, but it was solid D. I don't think it should have been that close at the end though. The Bulls had the ball and a five or six point lead with likd 1:20 left when D Rose took a quick bad shot that ended up an air ball, that allowed the Heat to get back into it.
Not to pick on Bosh, but he had a great start, but disappeared completely in the fourth quarter.
And D-Rose is playing, he is without a doubt the front runner for MVP. If the Bulls hold on to get a better record than the Heat, it should be Derrick Rose hands down. The guy is playing amazing basketball against great teams. Incredible leader as well, he has the Bulls playing amazing basketball this year. I know his defense is still seen as questionable, but he gives a great effort and is so strong driving to the basket. He has lived up to the hype and than some this year.
I don't know who i would pick in the playoffs. Every year a team beats a team a couple or all the time in the regular season but cant beat them in the playoffs. I think if i had to pick i would pick rhe Bulls since the Heat havn't played together for a long time
didnt u say not long ago that lebron was the mvp
Yea... He argued with me about it.
It's good to see he's come to his senses.
im not trying to put him on the spot.. im jus saying
That's what i like about basketball...Things can change from week to week because there are still games to be played. Dirk was the leader before he got hurt, Lebron has been the leader for a good period or time, Amare has been the leader at one point. This will be a very interesting race for MVP
Yea... I was just teasing lol.
I've switched on and off too. This is still a wide open race in my opinion. Dwight Howard is a legit candidate as well.
Damn i forgot about Dwight. Yeah he's in the running as well. I gotta be honest, i cant remember the last time i was looking forward to the playoffs as much as this year. People complain about these super teams but that's when playoffs are the best. Back in the day when the Celtics,Lakers,Det were super teams that's when basketball was at its best
LeBron has outplayed D rose in every game...wade and bosh just are too inconsistent, and LeBron can't make that one last shot. I truly believe LeBron is still very much the most valuable player, but that rose will win it with personality and quality wins.
The playoffs are going to be great this year with matchups like
The amount of star power in the playoffs this year will be rediculous Cant wait
east will be funner then i remember it for a long time.
LeBron's overall numbers have been better, but I think Rose has made more plays down the stretch of each game.
