    Bulls up 48-20 at halftime and I'm stuck at work.

    Another ridiculous game between Chicago and Boston. Refs took over and both teams made a lot of boneheaded plays, but still a great watch.

    That makes 3 in a row for us, meaning we'll lose tomorrow.

    Before recent games you would say Kobe had been shooting efficiently and his team had been letting him down. Now, he's cost them games as he's gone back to being a chucker.

    MDA is running him into the ground though. He's got no lift on that jumper these last few games after playing a ridiculous amount of minutes.

    He has been playing a lot...but if he is tired he shouldn't be shooting so god damn much. Mofo still thinks he's Jordan.

    Again, I feel dirty defending him, but did you watch the Bulls game? He looked to pass and made some great plays in the first half, and was responsible for the comeback in the 3rd quarter. Afterwards, every time he tried passing the ball down low we would easily strip Howard and denied Gasol everything. Thibs was doing this to make Kobe shoot more, and it worked, but it would not have if Howard could hold on to the ball long enough to draw fouls or if Pau could muscle his way in to get position. Plus Hinrich was having his best game of the season while locking Nash down and Jimmy played incredible defense on Kobe throughout the game.

    I mean, don't get me wrong, there's certainly a feeling that Kobe's going for the scoring title and/or Kareem's record down the line, but it's not entirely his fault he shoots so damn much.

    I think I'm stating the obvious here, but Boston's in a no win situation this year. If they make the playoffs, they're guaranteed to run up against Miami or Chicago (unless we choke) and both teams are a matchup nightmare. At the same time they're too good to not make the playoffs and get a lottery pick.

    Its that dang bench! When they ball Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee could all conceivably be 6th in the man of the year discussion, yet the only one with real consistency this year is the tubby, undersized draft pick Jared Sullinger. As far as as match ups go I reckon the current roster was assembled with only Miami in mind (and if that bench shows up could still make life really hard for them).

    Rondo might be out for the season with a torn ACL.

    Ouch.

    Devastating for the Celtics. This will even impact them next year as there's no guarantee he'll be fully recovered by the start of next season.
