Eastern Conference Finals
The Pittsburgh Penguins have their backs against the wall trailing 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals. Game 4 is tonight and a loss sends this loaded roster to an early summer.
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ path to the Stanley Cup Finals just got much more difficult after a 6-1 loss in Game 2 Monday night.
What’s too bad for the Bulls is that somebody in their own division appears closer to calling “next.”
The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to even up the Eastern Conference Finals when they take the ice for Game 2 tonight against the Boston Bruins.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are halfway to the ultimate goal of hoisting the Stanley Cup, but before they get to that point, they have to go through the Boston Bruins.
LeBron James scored 30 points, Udonis Haslem made his last eight shots on the way to a 16-point night, and the Miami Heat used a dominant third quarter to turn things around and beat the Indiana Pacers 90-79 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday.
It’s hard to call a game for the Miami Heat a must-win, but if the Heat can’t put together a winning formula against the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals; the Heat could be in deep trouble.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel walked into Monday’s practice with a simple message for players as they adapt to Miami’s new wrinkle – using LeBron James in the post.
The Miami Heat are going to have quite a challenge in front of them from the opening tip of Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Finals. Miami must find a way to once again play a near perfect half against the defensive-minded Indiana Pacers.
The Celtics handled the Heat rather easily during the regular season going 3-1. The Heat won in the second game of the season while the Celtics took the latter three, but with one of those was a meaningless contest at the end of the season when playoff seeding had already been set.
Rajon Rondo helped his aging teammates keep their season going Saturday night, finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in Game 7 against the 76ers to lead the Celtics to an 85-75 victory and into an Eastern Conference finals matchup with the Miami Heat.
The problem is the dichotomy between where Rose thinks the Bulls are, and where the team actually is.
A shoulder injury threatens more games for the 34-year-old, and the Bulls may be forced to make a trade before the March 15 deadline.
It’s a new year now, though, and Rose is just minutes away from giving the city of Chicago its first up-close look at the reigning MVP of the league.
For most fans, the pain of the Chicago Bulls losing to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals in May has long since subsided. But for Derrick Rose, getting over the 2010-11 season hasn’t been a quick process.
The Miami Heat won the series and plenty of TV viewers in the Eastern Conference finals.
Derrick Rose vowed to learn from this, to get better, and insisted the Chicago Bulls would come back hungrier after the Miami Heat knocked them out in the Eastern Conference finals.
In a must-win game, the Chicago Bulls had another late game scoring drought as they dropped Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals by a score of 83-80.
Not too long ago, former Oak Lawn Richards High School star Dwyane Wade received a nice welcoming when his Miami Heat made the trip to the United Center, but that’s no longer the case.
After Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, Bulls fans were ready to welcome either the Mavericks or the Thunder to the United Center for the NBA Finals. But panic seems to have risen among some of those same fans after the last three games.
