The Pacers have played very good in their 2 losses. Alotof people had said that if the refs were not calling the game in favor of the Bulls the Pacers would be up 2-0. The Pacers are getting all the calls in this one so it should be interesting.
This has been a good game so far. Paul has been a defensive menace so far.
Its funny how boozer pushes Hansborugh and he flys like 5 feet
Boozer gets away with a lot of pushing...
I've always known Boozer wasn't a good defender, but he's even worse than I thought... He's a sad sad defender. I mean, I can understand getting used by Stoudemire, Bosh, Garnett, Horford, etc, but he's getting abused by Hansbrough. That's just unacceptable. I know Hansbrough plays hard and hustles, but still... Boozer has just been terrible this series.
Its funny how Foster an old vet gets so much respect from the officials. Hes been hacking away at all the Bulls best players. If Hansborough was giving these kinds of fouls to Rose, Deng, Boozer he would have been ejected a longtime ago.
I meant Hansbourgh flys like 5 feet not boozer haha. A few plays back Tyler was getting abused.
that was a dumb foul by jones
Indiana basketball, Jazz fans used to go nuts about that when Utah played LA. Utah was always exposed by Boozers lack of defense. I see that being Chicago's point of weakness throughout the playoffs. Chicago better hope Noah stays healthy throughout these playoffs, or else Bosh, KG, Horford, Howard, or whoever they end up playing in the future will dominate.
This is the playoffs... Foster isn't giving any easy layups to Rose or any of the Bulls players, which is what he's supposed to do. He's not trying to hurt anybody. He's just saying "hello at the rim" lol.
Lol hello at the rim. I agree just saying these days the wouldnt allow a guy like Hansborough to crush a superstar like Rose. Trust me Im loving what Im seeing, oldschool basketball.
The Pacers are playing inspired ball, but the Bulls have been disappointing to me. The Pacers have pretty much outplayed them majority of this series... They just haven't been able to close out the game.
The Bulls look very average to me and aren't a lock to get to the Eastern Conference Finals in my opinion.
It seems as if the bulls are playing down to the competion, almost as if there not interested. Have to give pacers credit though they're putiing pressure on the bulls in every game
This Pacers new defense reminds me of Charlottes defense last year, add in the fastbreak threat these players have and it becomes deadly. I agree Chicago seems to be playingdown to the competition. It seems whnever they are on their heels they hit a big bucket and make a run, yet they are not making a point to take them out of the game. very scary for Chicago to let a young team like this gain so much momentum at home.
On the plus side, the announcers audio isnt working. I like when that happens makes me feel like Im there.
haha did foster walk it looked like it no call
Bulls make another 8 point run to go up by 2. Lets see if they back off again..
The Pacers lack of execution in the fourth quarter continues...
Im surprised Boozer hasn fouled out. Hacking all night long...what a horrible defender.
Korver is gonna be the bulls hero in this game
Korver has earned his entire contract in this series alone
Korver is 7 inches taller than Collison... He's just shooting right over him.
I thought Deng would lock Granger up this series, but Granger has really given him the business.
Kyles hitting his shots, thats what counts. Korvers playing great but give some credit to the teams structure. Chicago is showing everyone you wanna double, help, or switch on Rose Kyle is going to stick that jumper, they will make the extra pass to find him.
Deng can't stop Granger "he's not African enough" lmao who that &$#%#&@! again
Look at this.. The Bulls have 4 SFs on their team and Bogans can play there.. But, Deng has played every minute except for like 3 of this game.. Bogans, Deng, Korver, Brewer, and Butler.. All of those SFs and Deng plays 45 minutes... Wow.
The Pacers' plan for Game 4 should revolve around getting Kyle Korver in foul trouble.
Granger needs to settle down and not jack up bad shots. His team needs him now. Get Hansborough down in the post on Boozer, wait for help, kick it out to an open shooter, or hit the rim with some anger.
I just don't understand... That's the shot they get after a timeout???
Vogel should be ashamed of his team after that horrible execution. Waste of a timeout and you know Rose is going to want this game, he wants them all. Korver is oon fire too, not smart.
I'd have kept Paul George on Rose.
How do you stop that? Is there a player in the NBA that could stop that?
That is just way too easy.
Derek Rose is workin way too hard in this seris Bulls really need to pull it togather
Whos a better closer? Seriously. Someone tell me who is a better closer then Rose? Thats 3 games in a row he has either had the passes to close, the buckets to close, or both.
Another horrible Pacers possession SMH.
Ronnie Brewer has always been clutch at the free-throw line. Can't explain it.
I guess that's the difference... The Bulls have a closer and we don't.
Everyone has struggled this post season so far. Lakers, Spurs even the Heat have had their problems with the Sixers.
Survive and advance.....
The kids only shot in the second half, and its the game winner. Not a fan of the bulls, but it would be a travesty if they didn't atleast make it to the finals.
Paul George is going to be one hell of a player by the way. Him and his Pippen defense.
The Pacers really are a horrible matchup for the Bulls. They have George and Jones who can play defense on Rose and is quick enough and athletic enough to stay with him, and since they have no real versatile SG it forces whatever set shooter to have to shoot over the quicker Collison, or Price. Also Granger is having his way with Deng, and the fact that they have two capable offensive bigs in Hansborough and Hibbert allows them to expose Boozers lack of defense. They cant just have Noah play off on Hansborough because Hibbert will torch Booz. Great series and so far its all come down to crunch time. The Bulls execute and Pacers dont.
think they can win and then take it away. Pacers need an all star because they don't have one to make the big shots right now.
Offensively, he needs work though.
George really does remind me of T-Mac...with the Raptors of course. Not sayig he will ever become the type of player T-Mac was, just saying he is a player with many good tools and right now as his offensive game is all coming together he gets minutes with his defense and plays well. Very intriguing prospect.
