No question, the Bulls win ugly. Don't confuse that with losing pretty (aka the Pheonix Suns of past years and the Mavs before that)

The Bulls are one of the few teams in the league that can win when shooting poorly and looking rough on the offensive end.

Basically, when you only watch the team running their offenses you are essentially only watching 1/2 the game.

The Bulls are considered the best defense in the league and if not the best rebounding team they are right up at the top. Go pull up some of the box scores from when they've played Miami this year if you want to kick this around further, it's pretty telling.

If Atlanta didn't have the best shooting night they had all season (hyperbole) it would be 3-0. Oh well.

Bbbbbbbbeat down. Bull killed them in the paint, and Rose lit the funeral pyre.

Atlanta has a decent squad. But the Bulls can beat them playing badly and if they bring their A-game like tonight it's not going to be close.

Atlanta is back to their normal selves--a bunch of jump shots, lack of leadership, several iso plays that lead to difficult or bad shots...

I have seen this film so many times...

So much reliance on Rose. I don't know if the Bulls can sustain this scheme if they make it to the next round. It doesn't appear like Atlanta can handle the Bulls when Rose goes off like he did tonight.

Anyway, I wish the best for the Bulls (since I'm from the Chicago area). Bulls-Mavs final?

Since this is apparantly your first year following NBA playoff basketball I will let you in on a little secret.

Defense shows up everynight along with rebounding.
Why don't you tell me which team is the best in the league in these categories or at least top 3?

Better go on a diet, you have a lot of crow to eat already, more to come.

Todays predictions. My last ones were Bulls by 10 and mavs by 5.

Bulls by 10, Mavs by 5 again.

Mavs get the sweep. Bulls head home to close it out in 5.

Lakers win today with Artest back and the hawks tie the series at 2-2
