Bulls lose. Time for a Fro Dog post.


The Bulls reached a new low Monday night by losing to the Washington Wizards. Seriously? First, they play like complete shit against the Pistons on Sunday. They had a 14-point lead and blew it to the Pistons. Rose hits a three to force overtime. They commit about five fouls; none of which were called and they end up winning. They make 21 turnovers in the game but still find a way to win against a 22-win team. Fine.

Let’s go to Monday against the 14-46 Wizards. Oh man. This is going to be tough. First, they get an 11-point lead in the 4th quarter in which, they promptly cough it up. They miss six free throws and commit 17 turnovers. They had quite a few in the last quarter that ultimately, sealed their fate.

I use to say, well, they beat up on the bums but they lose to teams like the Thunder, Sixers and Pacers. In just over 24 hours, they steal a game from the 22-win Pistons but end up being embarrassed by the now, 15-win Wizards. Also, the Heat won on Monday so the Bulls could still piss away the #1 seed but let’s be honest, what does it matter? The Bulls could very well be upset by the Knickerbockers or Sixers. How does anyone expect the Bulls to win a playoff series when they barely beat the Pistons and lose to the Wizards?

    Here’s another reason why the loss to the 15-46 Wizards hurts: The Spurs won as well on Monday night and the Bulls only have a one-loss lead in the standings for home court. They lead the Eastern Conference by just two losses over the Heat with a match-up on Thursday. Five games left and they have to win at least four of them to secure home court. PATHETIC.

  2. Yeti Says:

    It’s PATHETIC that they’re in position to secure home court advantage in the playoffs?

  3. Fro Dog Says:

    It’s pathetic that they basically have to win out to do so because of this loss. If they win Monday, they get a little breathing room. But that’s alright because they probably won’t do anything regardless. I just want them to secure it so I have more ammo when they get eliminated by the Knicks or Heat in the playoffs.

  4. Yeti Says:

    Knicks, Heat. Yea, they’re about the same

  5. chucky Says:

    But….Kevin Gregg is still a serviceable closer, isn’t he?

    Or I could be Chucky and be better off if I slit my wrists

    Comments from Tom Thibodeou after the game:

    “17 turnovers, 27 points, beat ourselves, beat ourselves. The season’s coming to an end very quickly, you have to be ready, it’s not good. Everybody has a responsibility to do their job…do your job. [On turnover concern]: huge, huge, huge. The low turnover is a big part of winning. Defense, rebounding, low turnover; those are the three musts every night. There are a certain amount of mistakes that are going to happen in a game, but it doesn’t absolve you from sprinting back and protecting your basket. I’m disappointed, we have to play a lot better…”

    It turns out I’m not the only one who is bitching about this.


    The hockey talk will come. Promise.

  8. chucky Says:

    Yeti, one thing is certain. If you slit your wrists we all will be better off. Now, bow down bitch.


  9. Yeti Says:

    So, you know Deng and Rose were out yesterday, correct?

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    You realize they still played a team that only had 14 wins all season, correct? Two players missing is no excuse especially against that team.

  11. DVXPrime Says:

    Not quite ready to panic just yet, but the Wiz have had a season-long reputation for being just a bunch of teenaged punks who still think they’re playing at Rucker Park instead of in the NBA. The Bulls have done much better without a full, healthy team.

    Getting scary all of a sudden…

  12. chucky Says:

    Fro….you understand that Kevin Gregg is a serviceable closer, correct?

  13. MadCityMac Says:

    Hockey question- does Brendan Shanahan have a fucking clue when it comes to doling out fines and suspensions? I think not.

  14. chucky Says:

    STOP TALKING HOCKEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Fro Dog Says:

    The Blackhawks have had this problem of scoring first then pissing it away immediately. This has been happening all season. Three games in which they score first then give it up soon thereafter.

    I am not going to blame this loss entirely on the refs. The Blackhawks had plenty of chances to seal the deal. They are in trouble.


  16. chucky Says:

    OK, too much hockey talk!!!!

    Seriously though, I’m waiting to see what kind of suspension Raffi Torres gets for launching himself into Marian Hossa. Four officials were looking right at that play and didn’t say a goddamned thing. Torres should be suspended for the remainder of the playoffs, and those officials should be fired. That was total bullshit. The son-of-a-bitch left his fucking skates and blasted Hossa right in the mouth hard enough that he had to get stretchered out. I’m hoping somebody takes a stick and plants it in his empty fucking skull. The fucking dickbag deserves it.

  17. Fro Dog Says:

    I saw the replay again before going to bed and one ref was clearly in front of the hit. How he didn’t call it is beyond me.

    By the way Chucky, did you hear the Mac and Spiegal interview on 670 this morning with former player Jim Cummins? It was the most embarrassing interview I have ever heard.

  18. chucky Says:

    Fro…No, I didn’t. I’ll check out the podcast and get back to you.

  19. chucky Says:

    OK, I just listened to it. Cummins sounded like he was even more loaded than Scott Hall on a bad day. I’ll give Spiegal some credit for trying to call this asshole out on the carpet, but not McNeil. Honestly, Cummins should get a hockey stick upside the head too. Fucking dickbag.

    Fro….did you ever hear what the reason was for McNeil taking so much time off? I sure didn’t miss him. In fact, I’ve listened a lot less since his return.

    You were right about that interview. They should have cut him off after 2 minutes, but then Boers and Bernstein wouldn’t have that soundbite.

  20. Fro Dog Says:

    I read online why he took time off. Although I don’t listen to The Score as religiously as I use to, I was never a fan of McNeil even when he was at ESPN 1000. I am alright with Spiegal but I was a bit pissed a few years back when they took Laurence Holmes off the midday shift.
