    In 2007, the Chicago Bulls knocked out the Heat the year after they won the championship... just sayin

    The two games have been very close so far, and with the series shifting to Chicago for the next two games, the Bulls have a very good chance of returning to Boston up 3-1!

    The odds are probably still against them, but the Bulls are in great shape. They gave Boston everything they could handle up there, and did so with some questionable officiating. That's to be expected, I guess. Rondo's ankle could be a big deal.

    I still think if Boston loses another game, KG might play. I think he can play and he has to if they want to win.

    I don't see why the Bulls shouldn't win. Boston's missing their biggest presence on the inside, and Rondo even with a tweak hurts their offense.

    The Bulls would be up 2-0 right now if they would have just rebounded a little last night. I am also pretty tired of Del Negro not leaving a time out for the end of the game. Thats happened in both games so far and its pretty annoying, especially when you have 2 seconds left. Thats plenty of time for BG to get open and drain a 3.

    oh comeon ... Boston is the defending champ #1 seed. Chicago is an Eastern conference alsoran.

    It would be huge.

    NBA quiz: How many times has an 8 seed advanced and what was the first team to do it?

    I'm tired of them showing KG with a scowl while dressed in a suit. I'm a fan of his but he looks like a freaking idiot.

    Boston is the 2 seed, not the 1. If the Bulls didn't blow it in the last game of the year, they would be a 6 seed. They're a better team than their seeding because of the trade they made. With KG out, this would hardly be a monumental upset.

    I believe it has happened twice, with the first time being the Nuggets over the 1 seed Sonics. Don't know the year, but Mutumbo was on Denver.

    Wasn't Golden State the 8 seed when they won the first round series a couple of year ago?

    Yeah, when they beat the Mavs. That time and Denver over Seattle are the only two I remember.

    The Bulls really need to take the next two games in Chicago. I really wish they had somebody who could guard Ray Allen. Thabo Sefalosha was that guy but he's gone.

    The problem is Ben Gordon can't guard anyone. Hopefully Paxson doesn't make the mistake of giving him big time money.

    I hate to say it, but I've been impressed with Hinrich off the bench. He plays with fire.

    Leon Powe is out for the playoffs which will hurt the Celts inside as well...

    You're getting close.

    First time was Nuggets over Seattle in 1994.

    That was "skinny" Shawn Kemp and a young Gary Payton.

    Golden State did beat the Mavs as an 8 in 2007.

    1 more.

    It was the Nuggets over Seattle. I'm guessing that was a typo.

    I hate to say it but, after watching the first 2 games I think that the chi bulls are gonna win this series......

    The Celtics look old and tired and the Bulls look young and extremely energetic...

    I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!!:cool:
