All streaks stop in Chi-town. At the UC to be exact.
I think the Bulls scored more three-pointers (11) in this game than they did during all of last year’s regular season. While I wish my life’s theme song were, “It’s raining men,” I guess the closest I may get is the Bulls’ “It’s raining 3s.”
For now, I’ll take the 3s and worry about the men later.
Doing a quick calculation, 11 X 3 = 33. So, that’s about 1/3 of the total 110 points the Bulls scored in the game. Pinch me, I’m dreaming.
Oh Paul George, do you now see the error of your ways? You shouldn’t have said, “[The Bulls’] success is the Michael Jordan era. This is a new age, this is a new team. It’s ours till they take it.”
So everything went right for the Bulls. Remember last season, when sometimes, I would rather have been at the dentist than watch a game? And I HATE the dentist.
But you wondered where they’d find somebody, anybody to score. Benny the Bull, the ball boys, Neil and Stacey – all could have made baskets more easily than our Bulls.
Last night, the stars aligned, the basketball gods looked on our Bulls and smiled, and all of the covers were lifted off the baskets. Other than the third-quarter lull and a small shower of 3s from the Pacers’ Copeland, it all went right.
Deng with 23, DRose with 20, including six three-pointers. Taj, aka “The Secretary of Defense” with 15. Boozer and Captain Kirk with 13 apiece, and Jimmy “The Butler Did It” with 10, along with Dunleavy
In the post-game, Thibs said the first half was “terrific.” I think I fainted there for a minute.
So the pretenders are being put in their place now – the Nets and Knicks are all tied up third from the basement.
The Pacers have been shown who really owns the Central Division.
Miami, we’re catching up to you, and the Bulls now hold the longest win streak (4) in the Eastern Conference.
Seeking to uncover reasons for the Pacers’ incompetence, Sam Smith tweeted, “…travel to the Central time zone and time change leaving them disoriented.”
We know the true reason for their loss.
Our Bulls have arrived. It may have taken a little bit longer than expected, but watch out world.
See Red, and Go Bulls!
