There may be 3 games left in this Bulls/Celts series. But if the Bulls do not win Game 5 tonight, we can start talking about what a great experience it was for these young Bulls. Because I don’t see the Bulls beating the Celtics in a game 7 at the Garden.
If the Bulls do win tonight, I think the Celts pack it in and the Bulls move on to the 2nd round. And how crazy would it be if it was the Bulls-Sixers in round 2? It’s possible.
If Ben Gordon does not play tonight we could see some interesting matchups on the floor. Call me a heretic, but the Bulls might be better off if he sits. Who knows how effective he can score the ball with a bad hamstring? And it can’t help his already bad defense.
So here’s to you Kirk Hinrich. The whole series may be determined on how well you play tonight, on both ends of the court. I cannot wait for this game.
