Celtics lost to the Sixers and the Bulls beat the Hawks. Bulls are now .5 games behind for the #1 seed.
Rose nearly outscored the Hawks in the 2nd half tonight 24-26.
DanEboy, what monument is that in your picture? Or what the hell is it?
It's the bean at Millenium Park in Chicago.
Once Big Baby comes back I think we'll be alright. Our whole second unit is new to the team *literally, every player coming off the bench was just picked up*, and once someone who's been in the system a while can get plugged in everything will run more smoothly. People seem to forget that the Celtics are a different team right now, and need to work out the kinks. Bulls are peeking, and it's probably going to come down to the stretch. They better hope they just aren't hitting their stride to early.
Bulls aren't peaking...they are getting better and better. 9th straight opponent held to under 90 points. I want them to face the Celts so bad in the playoffs....get revenge from '09.
Yeah dude.. .5 game back from 1st place isn't peaking or hitting stride.. it's called consistently winning while dealing with injuries.
health is more important than 1st seed.
But avoiding a tough series against NYK or ATL in the first round is huge in the long run for any of the top 4 teams (CHI,BOS,ORL,MIA). Neithier team will get an upset win I think, but both teams will make you play a toigh series right off the bat. Getting a top 2 seed in the East is huge.
chicago can not beat boston in a 7 game series. period. boston has been doing this for 3 years now. theyve seen it all. there will be no revenge.
The Celtics time is up...hope you enjoyed the run.
