The Knicks were dealt a blow on the scoreboard and to their roster as Iman Shumpert was carried off the court. The Knicks were defeated by the Heat 100-67 in Game 1.
Iman Shumpert suffered a season-ending ACL tear and as a result, any hope of the Knicks competing with the Heat have ended.
The NBA lockout-shortened regular season has come to a close and the playoff teams have been decided. Let’s take a look at the Eastern Conference matchups to give you insight into who we think will come out on top.
Carlos Boozer scored 24 points and had 13 rebounds, John Lucas scored 20 points off the bench and the Chicago Bulls beat the Orlando Magic 85-59 on Monday night.
Last week, Chicago Bulls analyst Kendall Gill said that if Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard wanted to win championships, then Chicago was the best fit for him. However, it sounds as if Howard plans on chasing titles while in Orlando.
As disappointing as Thursday night’s loss is, this is still a Chicago Bulls team that has a lot of potential to contend for NBA Titles for many years to come. But for that to happen, the Bulls need to get league MVP Derrick Rose some scoring help.
I must confess: I did not see this coming. I fully expected the Chicago Bulls to be squaring off against the Orlando Magic in the teams’ first game of the Eastern Conference semi-finals tonight…not the Atlanta Hawks.
I may be alone in my line of thinking, but for the life of me, I could care less that the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft takes place on Thursday night.
Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls were tested in the first round by the Indiana Pacers, and they passed. Now Rose and Chicago is gearing up for their next test.
The Chicago Bulls beat the Indiana Pacers in five games to move to the Eastern Conference’s semifinals. Chicago will take on the winner of the Orlando Magic-Atlanta Hawks matchup.
62 wins, the top seed in the Eastern conference, the NBA’s best overall record and home-court advantage all the way through the playoffs, after an all-out performance by a roster laden with useful players.
Despite being the only player in the NBA ranked in the top 10 in points and assists per game, there may still be some debate to whether or not Derrick Rose has established himself as the MVP of the league.
Too often we take for granted the fact that we’re lucky to live in a high-major professional sports market that affords such big things as yesterday.
On Thursday, the Heat lost another close game, this time in epic fashion. The Heatles managed to blow a 24-point second half lead at home against the Orlando Magic.
The Chicago Bulls signed free agent Rasual Butler on Thursday. With long standing rumors now in the past, the Bulls can focus on trying to catch the Boston Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference will battle on Friday night on Chicago’s west side. Derrick Rose will lead the Chicago Bulls against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.
A little certainty isn’t so bad every once in a while. As we take a breather from scrutinizing the week-to-week convulsions of the melodramatic NFL, here is the comfort of the NBA’s Eastern Conference, with its reliably true-to-form performances as midseason approaches.
The biggest question Bulls fans had about Carlos Boozer, after Chicago acquired the talented power forward via a sign-and-trade deal with the Utah Jazz back in July, was not his ability to perform on the basketball court.
Carlos Boozer’s Bulls debut was not what he or any one else expected. Boozer and the Bulls looked out of sync and were dominated by the Orlando Magic. The Bulls try to get back on track in Boston.
Wednesday night at the United Center was supposed to be one of anticipation and excitement for Bulls fans.
