    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    This looked like what we all expected this entire series to look like. The Chicago Bulls dominated Game 5 Tuesday game from the start, were up 11 at the end of one quarter, pulled away in the third quarter and cruised to a 116-89 win. Now they sit around until next Monday (when the NBA…

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    Because what the Pacers really want to do is give the Bulls some real motivation, we give you Pacers coach Frank Vogel, speaking at Tuesday’s shootaround (as quoted by several members of the media): “We feel like if we win this game tonight, we’ll win the series.” It sounds like he took the brown acid…

  3. Derrick Rose: “It’s not broken, so I’m definitely playing”

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    As if you thought Derrick Rose was not going to play to close out the first round… Rose had an X-ray and an MRI, both of which came up negative, so he made it clear to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago exactly how this was going down, including the needle. “It’s not broken, so I’m…

    UPDATE 9:07 pm: According to Aggrey Sam over at CSN Chicago, Rose’s MRI came back negative. So, it is just a minor sprain. Which means like we say in the rest of this post, you can bet he plays the next game. 7:04 pm: Derrick Rose is go for Game 5. And you can expect…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Can the Pacers find a way to win one?

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    Three games decided by a total of 15 points. The Indiana Pacers have been close in this series. Very close. But when it came to end-of-game execution — and players who can execute under that kind of pressure — Chicago has it and Orlando struggles. The Bulls are up 3-0 and the only question that…

  6. NBA Playoffs: After two moral victories, Pacers search for actual victory

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Indiana Pacers put up a much tougher fight against the Bulls than anybody thought they would in the first two games of their playoff series, even though they lost both games. Like the old Simpsons quote goes: in a way, both teams were winners; but in a more accurate way, the Bulls were the…

  7. Pacers Darren Collison says he thinks he can play Thursday

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Indiana has played Chicago tough. They’ve been in it. Now they head home for Game 3 Thursday night. The question was would they be in it without Darren Collison, who sprained an ankle when he stepped back into the foot of a cameraman on the baseline last game. Turns out they may not have to,…

  8. Have the Pacers laid out the blueprint to beat the Bulls?

    Chicago vs. Indiana was supposed to be one of the blowouts of the first round. Our preview predicted a sweep. What the Pacers liked to do the Bulls could defend, and the Bulls had Derrick Rose. Two hard fought games in, the questions are not about this series — the Bulls are going to win…

    As if things were not challenging enough in this series for the Indiana Pacers…. Late in the second quarter the Pacers starting point guard Darren Collison rolled his ankle when he stepped on the foot of a camera man out of bounds along the baseline in what was a fluke accident. Collison sat out the rest…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Bulls will improve in Game 2, can Pacers?

    Bulls' Rose passes the ball around Pacers' Hibbert during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Indiana Pacers came out of Game 1 — where they led until the final minute and almost pulled the upset — thinking that they can play with the Chicago Bulls. But can they? The Bulls can play much better than they did in game one — look for them to focus on tightening the…

  11. Video: Derrick Rose carving up the Indiana Pacers

    Chicago Bulls' Rose passes ball around Indiana Pacers' Hibbert during Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Pacers seemed to knock down every outside shot they took. Yet that was not enough because Derrick Rose went MVP on them. Part of the fun of him is not just the scoring but how he gets there. Oh, just watch for yourself.
