Bulls lose to three refs in Detroit 

Post#1 » by dougthonus » Wed Dec 24, 2008 3:35 am

Gordon/Rose were taken out of the game for huge chunks of time by BS fouls. Game still incredibly close down the stretch, good refs = bulls win.

In general, this is the second game where the officiating was so incredibly lopsided it was mindboggling.

On the plus side, Tyrus nailed a 3 in garbage time to make him 50% on the year now.

The good:
Gordon
Tyrus
Rose (except for getting screwed over by the refs)
Nocioni

The bad:
Hughes
Noah
Gray

The Ugly
Deng

Urgh. Overall, I can't complain

Complain about the refs if you will, but I think Vinny gave this game up in the first half with those crazy lineups. I know Ben got in foul trouble too, but we just can’t have him and Rose out that long.

I mean Lindsay, Thabo, Hughes, and Tyrus out there together? Come on.

Oh well, wretched performance. Bulls continue to play like a cellar team on the road.

Larry played well but then reverted back to his old self in the fourth quarter. When he took that quick off-balance pull up jumper with no Bull under the ring 6 seconds into the shotclock I felt like smashing the computer screen.

Tyrus was excellent along with Nocioni and Gordon.

Noah, Thabo and Deng sucked. Deng was the worst player on the team again, not bad for 80 million...yuck.

This night was a success b/c Tyrus hit a 3. Let's just focus on this and ignore the depressing parts.

We should just forfeit all of our road games.

Wait, I thought Tyrus was utterly useless, hopeless and worthless and we're trading him for Chris Bosh?

We lost to three officials and a career once in a lifetime game by Rodney Stuckey . Had to correct you there a little Doug .

We lost to the refs + Stuckey, No Stuckey = Pistons loss. :( To those who mention Rose's defense on Stuckey, Rose played 20:42 of which 15-17 min were on Iverson. You can't blame Rose for Stuckey going off.

More pick-and-roll with Tyrus going towards the basket, please.

Rose better learn how to play defense if he wants to be a elite player someday. Right now his defense is suspect and dont give me this he was Iverson because Iverson sat out the second half. How can you let Stuckey light you up for 36 points.


Just to point out the ignorance of fans...

Rose wasnt even guarding Stuckey. Rose was matched up with Stuckey like 3 times. Gordon,Hughes and Thabo were guarding Stuckey

[/rant]

Back to the game.

We got seriously screwed by the refs tonight. Yes I know Stuckey was 'stuck' on automatic. He not that good seriously. I bet he gets like 12 on 4-15 shooting the next game.

And I am sorry Deng how OWNED tonight. Forget what you think about the rebounding. Watch him against Prince, it was absolutely no matchup at all. Deng took bad shots. Deng wasnt stopping Prince. It was just awful.

Hughes was great for the early portion of the night but he did start looking Hughes like in the second half. A couple of really bad shots.

Tyrus was GREAT today. Yes guys that makes 4 straight games....even the game got his concussion, he had 2pts and 1blk in like 5 mins. Tyrus has really been playing well.

I hate that the refs screwed Rose and Gordon tonight.

Either way, we must find a way to win on the road

Seriously, this game was at 4 points down at the end, forget Stuckey's awesome game, a fair treatement by the refs and the Bulls win this game by 5 to 10 points.

I'm thinking of 5 NBA players right now playing worse than Loul Deng.....and I can't really think of any.

Oh...and does Nocioni play ANY defense whatsoever??? Fouling people hard does not equal defense....will someone PLEASE tell him that!!!!
