This is it, win or go home. Luckily the Bulls are back at home now and hopefully the UC can make enough noise and get them through a win. It’s still amazing what has happened in the last two weeks, but that’s over now, let’s at least have some pride and go down swinging! Let’s GO! – JK
10:20 Lu has come out very aggressive tonight. Hitting a jumper then a nice drive and dish to Booz. Bulls up 4-0 early and Lu’s looking sharp. He’s obviously injured and has trouble dribbling, turning it over a lot. But he’s out there, playing in obvious pain and right now a 60% Deng is better than no Deng at all.
06:50 Bulls defense is so solid tonight, much better than all the previous three games. They’l need it if they want to win this because of all the low scoring.
03:30 Lu with the bank shot for 2 with the shot clock down to 1! Bulls down 10-12. This is a majorly ugly game on the offensive end for both teams. Neither are shooting well or can run a proper set for decent look. All opportunistic baskets here.
00:38 Brew with the and one layup! Bulls down 14-16. Happy for Brew, he was left out of game 3 without any explanation, well at least not the media, and took it in his stride. He’s a pro and you can always tell from his attitude.
00:00 Bulls up 17-16, wiht a 7-0 run to cap the first quarter. It’s an ugly game as you can tell from the low scoring. The defense is strong though, gotta keep it up and keep grinding.
08:56 Big block by Taj! And the putback down the other end! Bulls up 21-18. Taj is showing good energy at both ends of the floor. Hopefully he can provide the scoring like last game.
06:41 Lou Williams in for the layup, and Kyle Korver just ripped John Lucas for not stepping up on him and getting his man. When Kyle’s yelling at you on D, you know you’ve done something wrong! But good to see intensity from Kyle. He’s been a good leader with Derrick and Jo out being the voice of the team. He’s probably the most well spoken of everyone.
02:25 Bit of a tussle on the floors with Taj and Elton Brand. You gotta love an NBA scuffle and John Lucas is all fired up! Little man’s complex! Haha. Good to show a bit of fight! Go down swinging!
00:00 Half ends with the bulls up 35-26. Lot’s of heart shown by the Bulls fighting for loose balls and sticking hard on the defensive end. The offense isn’t being generated off sets, more broken plays and opportunistic plays, that’s alright as long as they’re also defending the transition well too.
09:38 CJ with a nice wrap around feed to Booz for the layup. Bulls up 41-31. CJ having another rough night on his shot but playing a decent floor game. Rip was also having trouble with his shot and on the defensive end as well.
02:06 Taj is down with his ankle now. Bulls just cannot catch a break. It’s been such a rough post season for the Bulls so far. Taj was playing great as well, he’s heading straight to the locker room. Bulls up 53-46.
01:16 Booz with another turnaround jumper to put the Bulls up 55-46. He’s has a great quarter, scored 10 of his 15 in this quarter so far. Exactly, what the Bulls need from him.
00:00 Booz finishes the quarter with a great drop step and layup! Bulls end the quarter up 57-48. Bulls found it very easy to use Boozer to score that quarter and finally kept feeding him while hot. They have a tendency to go away from him once he misses one or two. But he carried them that quarter and ticked the score over.
08:24 Lu with a deep deep three! Bulls up 64-49. u’s had his stroke on tonight, where was this for the last few games? Glad it’s back now at least.
06:43 Taj checks back into the game. Showing great heart to come back in. Gotta love the guy! Bulls up 67-58.
05:23 Brew with the big block as he just rips it away! Bulls up 71-58. Taj just can’t stop screaming out there with how much his ankle hurts. It’s unbelievable, he was shooting free throws screaming the whole way.
00:00 Bulls WIN! 77-69. Ugly win, but way to grind it out and show some spirit for the hometown fans.
- Gotta love the fight that Taj gave out there. He went down with a rolled ankle, then had the heart to come back in obvious pain to play it out and play well still giving it everything jumping all over the place.
- Lu and Booz on the points tonight were big and really what the Bulls needed with 24 and 19 respectively.
- Not much from Rip and Korver tonight, but maybe its now evident that this isn’t their type of series. The Sixers seems to snuff out their plays from Game 2 onwards and both haven’t been able to get it going at all the last 4 games.
MVP: Luol Deng/Carlos Boozer/Taj Gibson
- Luol with 24-8-1-2-2 and Boozer with 19-13-6 and a block were keeping the Bulls afloat as they desperately needed.
- Taj had 8-7-1 with 4 blocks and showing a ton of heart. Really lifted the team emotionally.Nice grind it out win of an ugly game. A win is a win though, and its always good to show fight, pride and ensure they don’t get sent home from their home court. They’ll play it out now and try to get the next one in Philly, then Game 7 is a coin toss but back at the UC. Let’s get there!
