But I also happen to think this: Playing without Derrick Rose in the playoffs could actually be a very good thing for the Bulls in the long run.
Gresh and Zo started off Thursday’s show talking some Celtics basketball as the NBA heads into it’s All-Star Weekend. The C’s are now 8-1 without Rajon Rondo and are gaining the respect of the league as they continue to win games short-handed.
Andre Iguodala made the go-ahead free throws with 2.2 seconds left and the Philadelphia 76ers rallied for a 79-78 victory over the top-seeded Chicago Bulls in Game 6 on Thursday night, advancing to the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time since 2003.
Luol Deng scored 24 points, Carlos Boozer added 19 points and 13 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Philadelphia 76ers 77-69 on Tuesday night to avoid a first-round playoff exit.
Spencer Hawes scored 22 points and Jrue Holiday had 20 to help the surprising Philadelphia 76ers beat the Chicago Bulls 89-82 on Sunday and take a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series.
Jrue Holiday scored 26 points, Lou Williams added 20 and the Philadelphia 76ers beat Chicago 109-92 on Tuesday night to even their first-round series in the Bulls’ first game since Derrick Rose’s season-ending knee injury.
The Bulls won Saturday’s game, but they have lost their point guard for the rest of the season.
The Bulls have won home court advantage for the first round in the Eastern Conference playoffs, with the Miami Heat having lost Tuesday night.
Derrick Rose returned from a one-game absence to score 25 points and help the Chicago Bulls hold off a second-half charge and beat the Boston Celtics 88-79 on Friday night.
Some of the NBA’s biggest stars might get to play basketball this season after all, including a trio of Celtics.
