    Jesus, didn't we also offer Horford a contract before he ultimately decided to go Boston? I guess we dodged a bullet there. Makes the Ryan Anderson deal look like a steal by comparison.

    Morey seems to dodge a lot of bullets, Most notably Bosh and Melo.

    Yeah, how much of it was, simply the Bulls sorely underachieving, during the regular season. They were completely mismatched talents saddled with young upcoming players, not getting minutes or underperforming. Fred Hoiberg was going to be 2 minutes after the regular season.

    Celtics need a real center. Horford is a PF and gets schooled by Lopez

    This is pretty much what I thought would happen when I heard about Thomas' sister. When Barkley announced before Game 1 that the "Bulls don't stand a chance", or words to that effect, I knew he was as wrong as he often proves to be.

    With the pall cast over the Celtics' organization, Boston just doesn't have the heart right now (and I don't entirely blame them). They're trying, generally, but this isn't something you shake off. You can say Thomas is putting up numbers, but that's to be expected; he's trying to fight through it. Still, this is enough to take the air out of their locker room, while the playoff experience of Wade and Rondo kick in.

    Can the Celtics wake up, kick it up a notch, get back in this? That'll be interesting to see.

    You do have to feel badly for Thomas. That's rough as hell.

    Why is everyone blaming Brad Stevens? It's not like he can do anything with an overmatched roster.

    The sister news aside, is anyone else not at all surprised?

    lol @people saying Boston will get swept

    Yes the Bulls are a better playoffs team but they are still horrible and hit some lucky shots. There's a reason they barely made the playoffs
    This series will go to 7 games. Mark my words

    The Bulls have to win tonight to guarantee their ticket to round 2.
