i really thinkg mda was bombing on purpose so he could force the FO to get him a pg. now the offense has flow and were showing we could probably get by without one. it seemed like the bulls made every jump shot they took and if they miss just one of those we just beat the best team in the conference. with a little more time to gel we can get back to being one of the better offenses in the league.
Lol, 22 games into the season and still need "time to gel," if you haven't gelled in one third of the season under the current circumstances...it ain't happening.
These dudes all have established basketball games, it's up to the coach to put the pieces together to complete the puzzle, not reshape them to make the picture you want.
There is no more time to gel. That passed a while ago.
Melo could have moved quicker but he was coming into 2 defenders he wanted to make a move but he was trapped no one was open only reason he got that shot off was they didn't wanna foul. We were screwed either way. bad calls by the refs, Douglas and Jeffries in the game too much, no Steve Novak when we need a 3, STAT and Melo got hacked like 5 times and got no calls
I know that the knicks should be feeling a little stunned and pissed for losing, but they should feel confident for giving the best team in the eastern conference a hell of a game and playing a great game that came down to the very last seconds of it, not feel low and back to the low confidence, losing streaks etc, they gotta build on this....they should carry the confidence and great play to Boston tommorow and beat our arch nemesis the Celtics
Im hoping for a loss tomorrow...
Most teams in the league would KILL to be able to play the Bulls this close. This game literally came down to the last minute and we lost. It sucks, but this **** happens even to the good teams. This loss isn't really that bad, and the only reason why it feels terrible is because we lost to **** teams like the Suns, the Cavs, the Raptors, the Bobcats, and whatnot.
Putting Novac in wouldve been a much better strategy.......
We were down by 3 with 16 seconds left....Melo & Tyson couldve
screen for Stat to dunk....Chicago was not going to stop the clock
by fouling Stat.
What bothers me is - what if - the shoe was on the other foot, would
coach Thib go for the 3-ball shot (Kover) with 16 seconds remaining,
or would he have Rose quickly slash the lane for 2 points, then foul
the Knicks bringing in the ball giving Chicago the ball in the final 8 seconds.
During every time-out today Dantonio was on one knee with his clipboard out addressing the team......A far cry from standing in the Love Circle with his brother and the other coaches away from the team.....
For the life of me I cannot understand his playing Douglas so many minutes....He made so many crucial mistakes with TO "s and fouls then missed crucial shots......Should have went with Walker or Novak......
good game by STAT, Fields, Melo, Chandler, tough loss. however, as usual...
substitution, mass confusion, clouds inside my head... (THE CARS)...
and of course...
We lost this game b/c Carmelo choked again in the 4th. When it mattered most he was getting his shot blocked left and right. 2 points in the quArter? Another disgrace. we trailed entire game, and chi played last night while we rested. we split the next 2... running out of time people. Mt den friend was right tho. for every game winner melo sinks, he blows you 4 games w/ atrocious 4th q play. terrible loss.
Watching Gallo and Mozgov dominate in this Clipper game depresses the hell outta me..
