I just shut the Bulls game off. I have had enough.

If they don't get Deng and Hinrich back at least, this series is for sure done.

This was true before Game 2 began.

They key is that they managed to take a game on the road despite being ridiculously shorthanded.

A blowout doesn't count as any more of a win than a 1-point victory. Bulls have been rebounding from this all year long.

They badly need Hinrich and Deng, though, like you said. Another win is fairly unlikely with the current group. If it comes down to it and nobody's back, hopefully they can pull off the upset again with the fans behind them in Game 3.

Would rather lose by a million than have Noah, Butler, Nate, etc play another 45+ mins and lose a heartbreaker. While their play was absolutely terrible tonight you knew they couldn't keep up that intensity for so many games with the minutes they were logging. I think Hinrich's done for the year but maybe we can get Deng back soon.

If you told me before the series started the Bulls would be coming home 1-1, I would take it all day long.

No one United hired wouldn't make them worse, Mouinho, Pep, no one is as good as SAF.

Those guys are pretty close. Way closer than Moyes

Moyes is an excellent manager and he's never been in a situation where he can actually, you know, spend money like Pep and Jose have. Not convinced either would've been better options.

They've also never had a non UK or Irish manager, so I'm not really surprised they aren't starting now.

I agree, I think Moyes has done a pretty great job keeping Everton in the top 10 in the EPL the last 5+ years when they have been in the bottom 10 in payroll.

I think he will succeed when finally given the financial backing he will get at United, plus SAF will still be there to lend a hand.

I think Moyes also fits better because he will go in and adapt to how United do things and try to continue the tradition they have, someone like Jose would change up everything and run things his way and leave 3 years later.

Yeah, neither of those 2 are exactly the model of stability.

Stability is probably a deciding factor. Mourinho tends to run out his welcome after 3 years

Solid first half by the Bulls. Impossible not to be proud of this team even if they go on to lose in 5. So depleted but giving the Heat all they can handle.

I'm just pissed off about that Bosh flop when he and Noah were going up for a rebound. Then the next possession Belinelli is fouled while making a 3 and it wasn't called. The ref who didn't make the call was the same one who fell for Bosh's flop. What a ****in idiot. I thought the NBA was trying to get rid of flopping

Yeah, the Bulls definitely got the short end of the stick on a few plays.

It's in the past, I guess. On the whole I've been surprised at how decent the officiating has been (compared to what I expected). Just gotta move on to Game 4.

Hinrich and Deng may not return for the series, whether it goes 5 or 7.

LeBron is such an amazing talent, and I try to like him but he makes it impossible with his antics and childish behavior.

Maybe it just because I am old school and grew up watching the Bad Boy Pistons and Knicks and teams like that but watching him cry about every little touch and then, as possibly the biggest guy on the court to actually flop makes me sick.

Don't remember seeing Bird, Magic or MJ, cry like a little girl and these guys had their heads almost taken off at times, and I certainly don't remember them falling all over like a Euro soccer player or some figure skater.

Man up LeBron and maybe people won't hate you as much, talent doesn't make up for acting like a spoiled brat who didn't get his way.
