We have owned the 4th again against Miami.

Vuce and Theis were HUGE tonight.,

This win definitely felt better than the Celts win. This game the bulls WON the game instead of the other team losing it.

Great game! Definitely the best of the season. It’s momentarily fun again to be a Bulls fan.

Consider this my official petition to change the name of the PG thread to;

Theis wins the Taj Gibson Award for Excellence in the avenues of Heart, Hustle and Muscle.

Coby learnt his lesson with Jimmy goading fouls. He pulled the chair out from under him and Jimmy blew the wide open layup in the clutch. HUGE play by White. Has to be noted

We have to resign Theis right?

Good job by the Bulls to win 3 of the last 5, with wins v. BOS/CHA/MIA, all playoff teams. Coby is still erratic, but he's also the engine that seems to make the team run right now.

Really nice b-ball on both ends.

Miami are an old and hurting squad right now, but Ariza turned back the clock tonight, and they really wanted the W to keep that #6 seed.

There are some match-ups were the huge line-up/Lauri-SF works.

I was ready to resign him the second he landed. Now I want a 4 year deal through the end of his prime.

Theis was a really good trade. We won that one. No debating it.

This team is actually playing their best basketball at the right time. Gotta keep this up though, especially defensively.

Despite my preference to lose, this was an exciting gutsy throwback game and I freaking loved it.

Vuc, Theis and maybe even Coby will probably get all the love. But I want to highlight Lauri’s second half. His stats don’t pop out at you but he was playing winning hoops all half on both ends of the court. Damn I wish we could see that version of him more often. It’s fun and infuriating at the same time.

Regardless, hell of a game from Lauri. He was a major factor in a gutsy physical win, and his play matched the tone of the game.

Sign me up for more jumbo lineups. Lauri had some nice mismatches out there

I will take him being guarded by the Gabe Vincents of the world instead of the Jimmy/Bams

Too bad he’s a UFA. Could be short lived. I’ve been really happy with him. We need some guys like that going forward.

Zach does not make the Bulls worse. Relying on him too heavily does. Watching this team come together in his absence is more than I could have asked for at the start of this season.

I'd like to see lauri playing inside more because his little hook is effective, i just don't know if he can physically handle it.
