Win or go home? Sort of. The Bulls 101-93 victory over the Celtics leaves their playoff destiny in their own hands. Beat the Bobbies tonight and make the playoffs. If the Bulls lose, they need the Raps to lose to the Knicks to make the postseason.
But with a road game in Charlotte on the tail end of a back-to-back, we should probably hope for a Knicks win tonight.
But the win against the Celts was as epic as they come for this year’s Bulls squad. Derrick Rose refused to lose by scoring 39 points on 15-22 shooting and 9-10 from the line. He also added 3 blocks, 7 helpers and 5 boards. Kirk Hinrich went off with 30 points, including 4 three-pointers. Joakim Noah crashed the boards for 16 rebounds.
MJ’s Bobcats stand in the way of the Bulls postseason. Should be fun tonight…hopefully.
