Bulls lose to the Wizards. Again.

by

Well, I must say, watching the Bulls is beginning to be pure comedy. The Bulls, for the second time this season, lost to the 28-win Wizards on Tuesday night. Unlike the first game where the Bulls just weren’t in the game at all, they decided to piss the game away in the second half. The shitty play started happening in the second quarter and during this time, I was picturing Wizards head coach Randy Wittman telling his players the following: Guys. Let’s take a deep breath here. We have the Bulls right where we want them…with them up 10. We’ve seen this before when they’ve played other teams. If we just get a couple baskets here, they’ll fall apart before we know it.

Well, lesson learned. Late in the fourth quarter, Kirk Hinrich decided to meet his quota of doing something stupid every few weeks by taking not one, but two technical fouls in a row, thus leading to an ejection. Then, in the last two minutes of this game, both Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson missed two free throws each to seal the deal and a total of five was missed on the night. What was the difference in the game? Four points.

Before someone who doesn’t watch sports comes here (Irish Yeti), let me clarify that I do realize that the Bulls cannot win every game. It’s the law of average so to speak. I expect them to lose to teams like the Spurs, Thunder or some other team but for crying out loud, when they can’t beat the Wizards, Bobcats or Kings, you know they are bad.

But hey. I am not a genius. I just watch the games like everyone else. The Bulls are inching even closer to that glorious, .500 record. Too bad the season is about to wrap up because if there were more games, .500 looked pretty realistic. The Bulls will be playing the Pacers or Nets in the first round, where they will promptly, lose in six games. Write it down and in a month, we’ll see who’s correct. If I am wrong, it means the Bulls lost in seven games. My bad if that happens.

    You really need to stop getting your basketball knowledge from video games Fro.

    Seriously, I knew the Bulls were going to blow this one in the 3rd quarter. The lead just kept shrinking, then sure enough, Washington was ahead. Jimmy Butthole is fucking useless at the line. All any opposing team needs to do in a tight game is foul that useless sack of dog shit in the 4th, then get the ball back. Then the Bulls seem to pull out their verision of Lovie Smith I-Pass defense. This is getting real fucking old. And I never thought I’d say this, but FUCK DERRICK ROSE!

    Maybe this isn’t relevant..but how many times have the Bulls won a NBA title post Michael Jordan?

    Question #2: Yeti…how many beans are in the can?

    The Bulls have a SLIGHTLY better chance of winning it all this year than the Cubs do. Think about it.

    The Bulls were 11 for 16 from the line. The Wizards were 18 for 26. If both teams make all of their free throws (as I gather you think all basketball teams should), Washington wins 98-91.

    The moral? Clearly free throws were the deciding factor.

    Here’s a comprehensive list of qualifying small forwards who have been more reliable from the line than Jimmy Butler this season, per ESPN: Kevin Durant, Martell Webster, Nicolas Batum, Carmelo Anthony, Danilo Gallinari.

    Here’s a comprehensive list of qualifying* players on division-leading teams who have been better than or equal to Jimmy Butler from the line: Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Kevin Martin, Ray Allen, Jamal Crawford, Tony Parker, Carmelo Anthony, George Hill.

    George Hill is in fact tied with Butler for 43rd best FT% overall in the league among ESPN’s 123 qualifying players.

    (*Qualifying = “on pace to make 125 free throws”)

    Thrilldo…do you know what you can do with your “comprehensive lists”?

    Translation: I only give a shit what the Bulls do. The Bulls missed free throws that ultimately, lost the game. They also lost because of the same reason to the Mavericks last Saturday. Jimmy Butler lost both games because he missed free throws in the final minute(s).

    Also, before I forget, the video below is for our good friend Jimmy D. It’s Erin McElroy in a contest for “Danicing With The Stars” Chicago Celebrity edition that took place about a year ago. Enjoy.
