    • heck of a win.

      tougher than it needed to be, but showed a lot.

      • Sure was a hell of a game from a neutral observer view. Kobe sure would have looked bad if he had missed that shot.

          Your team is only good at offense, and you have an elderly PG...and you want the league's best defensive team who has an up-and-coming stud PG MVP candidate?

          I'd like your odds at beating the Heat in a shootout series over you beating the Bulls.
          1. They can't guard us. I know they have great team defense, but no one on that team can guard Stat or Melo. We present serious matchup problems for them. Even if they double up, they still can't guard our offense.

          2. They lack scorers to take advantage of our defense. It's one thing if this was the Celtics or Heat, who have guys who can score. The Bulls have 1 legit scoring threat and a bunch of role players. Believe it or not, our zone defense isn't that that bad, the Bulls don't have the talent on offense to take advantage of it on a consistent basis.

          3. They lack an inside guy who is big enough to take advantage of our lack of size in our interior defense. So again, our weakness doesn't get exposed. Boozer is too small to take advantage of it. We can D up on him.

          The Bulls are overachievers. They play playoff basketball in the regular season, like the old school Miami Heat teams of the 90s. But once everyone else elevates their game in the playoffs, the Bulls can't raise up to that next level of intensity bc they are already playing at that level, and they wind up underperforming in the playoffs as a result.

          Everyone saves their best for the playoffs. The Bulls are already there. They'll come crashing down to reality once the playoffs start.

          I'm so confident that the Knicks would beat the Bulls in the playoffs that I'll say we'd win in 6 games. And you can sig quote me on that, in case they meet in the playoffs.

          The Bulls don't scare me at all.

          • You may be right on a few points, but what's going to end up separating the two teams is depth. And they play to the concept of team better than any team in recent memory not named the Spurs.

            • People are going overboard on the bulls and the Knicks the last couple weeks. I would hesitate to call the Bulls overrated though. They've got depth in the front and backcourts and an MVP caliber player, which makes them a contender. I do agree that the Knicks could feasibly handle them. A superstar big trumps a superstar guard in the playoffs.

              • I love love love the way the Bulls play basketball. Love it.

                But they are the 90s Knicks. Until they get that 2nd guy (and no Boozer is not that guy), they're always gonna be a dollar short in the playoffs.

                • Deng can guard Melo and Noah can guard Amare'. Neither will be able 'stop' the duo, but I think we can slow them down.

                  I mentioned this a couple weeks ago, but you traded away two pieces that gave us fits in Chandler/Gallo. Both of them pulled Deng/Boozer out of the paint and it killed our rebounding. Now we match Boozer up with Turiaf, which will allow Boozer to stay inside more.

                  I think we match up better with you now than we did before the trade. It's the same reason Toronto tends to give us trouble with Bargs and Cleveland with Jamison. Boozer can't stay with either of them. Gallo was a huge match up problem for us and Chandler's ability to slide into the 4 at times was also a problem. Deng has statistically been fairly solid on Melo. Hell, he guards LeBron well too. I'm honestly more concerned about Douglas and fields heating up. Both those guys killed us in our first two meetings.

                  I will agree that I'm a tad worried we've maxed out our talent, but we excel in three areas that are vital in the playoffs; defense, front court play and rebounding. We also have depth on the bench and will roll 11 deep with Kurt Thomas getting minutes at the 5.

                  I would be worried about a match up with you guys though because of your offensive capabilities and the fact that we're 0-2 against you (even though both games we were missing Boozer or Noah). Think back to the Golden State team who upset the Jazz and the Mavericks. They were explosive offensively and ran those two teams out of the building.

                  The key in defeating the Knicks is to slow the pace down and grind it out. We get caught up in playing a run and gun offense against you and we struggle to keep up.

                  My two keys are shooting late in the clock and grabbing rebounds. If we can force you to play defensively consistently for 14-20 seconds a possession I believe we'll frustrate and wear you down. I also believe that second chance opportunities are a big key. Our activity on the boards would be key in the series.

                  As Phil Jackson would say: no rebounds, no rings.

                  I don't believe we'll be able to hold your offense down though and I'll also agree with you on the 2nd scorer point. However, the emergence of Deng as a 2nd/3rd option (assuming he's not gassed from playing too many minutes) has been huge since the all-star break. We talk a lot about Rose on here, but Deng has been dynamite for us on both ends of the floor. He thrives moving off the ball and on catch and shoot opportunities. He's become a forgotten man and he'd be my x-factor in the series.

                  The only way I see us losing the series is if we try and outscore you. We cannot get caught up in the fast tempo you like to play. We need to control the pace and play what I like to call 'ugly basketball.' We just wear teams down with our defense and movement offensively and that is what needs to happen against the Knicks.

                      It would be such a fun series to watch. I think I speak for both of us when I say a Knicks/Bulls series would be so epic. I want to see it so bad.

                      It'll be so much fun! Both our teams and fanbases need the rivalry back.
