The Bulls came out looking listless, overmatched and overwhelmed in Sunday’s contest. They now have to play in an elimination game for their trouble. Gortat has been quoted as saying that “Nene will get 30 and they will clinch the series on our home floor tonight.” Nothing the Bulls have done so far has indicated that this will not happen, however I’m hoping for another pride win in order to spare Chicago the pain of watching the Wizards celebrate here.
The Wizards got 29 points off of the Bulls 16 turnovers and were also +4 on threes. They were quicker to loose balls, look amazing on defense and attempted 8 more FTs than the Bulls. They’ve simply been the aggressors. DJ was a non-factor, Dunleavy came back down to earth and Boozer has been reduced to a whisper as our power forward. Jo is doing all he can. He grabbed 15 boards and managed 10 pts and 5 assists. The to do list is just too big.
The bright spot was a monster game from Taj. 32 big points for Tajeewoo! All but two buckets were dunks or at the rim. Hate we wasted that performance.
I’ll see you guys on the other side. About to tip off in a few minutes! Go Bulls!
