    Necro response, but seems like Bulls are getting much more than 80% of Korver's production from Dunleavy. Washington has apparently figured out how to take Korver out of the series.

    Gortat was horrid on defense in the endgame. He half heartedly jogged to his close outs as Horford hit two huge shots for Atlanta. Although I can't blame the Wiz for not boxing out on the last play - John Wall's huge defensive play ended up in a really bad carom for the Wiz. That's the way the ball bounces!

    Yup. As much as I rooted for the Thibs-Noah era, it's time for a change.

    Honestly, I don't want to rag on the guy again, but Noah is a huge culprit. Dude spends 90% of his minutes at the top of the key, asking for the ball, making sub-par bounce passes. It's painful

    With a decent hair stylist, Noah could become an all star again.

    where do bulls go from here? hard to see them making it out of second round much less get to the finals

    they got beat by a cavs team without love and an injured irving. hard to see them get better

    I think many teams would kill to have a Rose, Butler, Gibson, etc. on their team so in terms of talent; I believe they are fine. I think a drastic coaching change is definitely in order though.

    Thibs is basically gone, I think...Rumors are the front office despises him and the feeling is mutual.

    No doubt Thibs is a great coach and I wouldn't mind him playing more of a "defensive coordinator" role but minutes restrictions are just a reality in this NBA and he doesn't want to accept that. He grinded Deng and Noah to dust already and Butler is well on his way too.


    Re: Lebron, as talented as he is, I've lost all respect for him. In Game 5, when Dellavadova locked Taj's leg (which was a pretty dangerous thing to do considering Taj's history with leg injuries), the TV crew cut to LBJ looking up at the jumbotron and he was laughing. I mean seriously. The whole Cavs bench was yukking it up

    That was a total skunking. I thought the Bulls had them where they wanted them after the G3 Rose game winner, too.

    After a great series that Bulls/Cavs game was a stinker. Oh well.
