  • Game #50: Chicago Bulls 102 - Toronto Raptors 129

    So....
    are you ready for
    THE BIG GAME?



    And by that, of course I mean the Bulls and Raptors on a Sunday afternoon!
    Oh, you were thinking of these guys?



    Naw....49 was the last thread. This is game 50!
    But before we move on to 50,
    congratulations to Coach Nick et al (and the team that made it possible) for getting to the all star game
    I can just see it now...
    Pascal, Kyle and Giannis all huddled on the sidelines listening intently,
    as Coach Nick talks about where they'll all go for wings in 2021.

    So if Game#49 was about getting the 2nd seed to send our coaches to the all star game,
    Game#50 is about the start of the closing stretch to get the 2nd seed at the end of the season
    (or first if we're bored )

    This stretch starts with the Bulls.
    I'm always a bit sentimental about them as I think my first game thread was many Februarys ago when we finally beat the Jimmy Buckets Bulls.
    How things have changed. I don't know if he would even recognize this current team.
    I'm no religious scholar but Thomas, Luke, Kris, Thaddeus and Zachariah
    sounds more like a bible study group than an NBA team.
    But I do know better than to mix religion and sports,
    so in the true spirit of the SuperBowl
    (crass, blatant commercialism)
    I present the Bulls as late 80's
    TigerBeat stars

    Hopefully Norm's finger is good to go. My guess is that Marc will still be out.
    This is the last of the softer schedule for a bit as next up is the home and home with the Pacers.
    Let's take care of this one and get number 11.

    As for the other game that day, believe me, the 49er logo above was not a clue to my leaning.
    How can you not root for Kansas who's roster includes a Canadian doctor from McGill?!!








    Besides, at least for a little while longer,
    we know the San Francisco Bay only has room for one Champion.






    Go Raps

    Let’s make some history baby! 12-game win streak is so close. And, if we win this game we’ll be on pace for 59 wins

            My guess is that with the AS game coming up (and with the AS coaching issue done and considering the competition Sunday), Gasol won't be playing no matter what. Remembering how strongly he came back after his last (and unfortunately recent) injury, bodes well for the second part of the season as he's picking up unscheduled rest. Dude's hammy has to be OK for the rest of the year....

            With Norm out (again, rest at AS break means less games lost) does Davis finally get more burn?
            Do these injuries ever end?

              Keep it rolling JClaw! Great job getting Nick into the all star same.

              Wonder whether Marc plays. Without Norm's punch off the bench, really need the starters' offence clicking.

                              Chicago has a lot of injuries right now: Carter, Dunn, Markkanen, Gafford and Porter are all out. Valentine & Satoransky are banged up but probable.

                              I remember Valentine and Gafford going off on us last time around. Just need to do a good job on defense. Their coaching is horrible, so they'll screw up on their own usually. Lavine is the only guy on their team really capable of doing anything. Hopefully OG is up for the challenge.
