Boston Blasts Bulls @ UC

Let's just all take a big step back and re-evaluate the Bulls-Celtics series. Ouch. Those numbers for the Bulls? God-awful! And hey, I'm not just talking about the pathetic 37.5% fg percentage. Cop what the Cs shot and recognize one thing: the Celtics have shot an insane 48.1% and 49% from the field over the course of the past two games, including a shocking 57.1% from 3-point land in game three last night. Now, this is definitely --to a point-- attributable to the Celtics having incredibly hot shooting and over the course of a seven game series the Celtics will have to cool off (won't they??); but the Bulls team defense must improve or else this series is like the dodo for Chicago fans. What should be much more concerning for the Bulls isn't the final score --hey, we all get the short end of the stick-- but the physically intimidating manner in which Boston set the tone from the tip-off. The Celtics simply pushed Chicago and the Bulls did nothing. So, Bulls, listen if you wanna keep playing into May next time Rajon frickin' Rondo b*tch slaps a Joakim Noah, step in and let him know he can't do that in your stadium.
