Round One: Cavaliers vs. Bulls

Postby RobitusinZ » Tue Apr 20, 2010 3:37 pm

I didn't get a chance to watch Game 1, but Game 2 was a very good game. Really, the Cavs were simply blessed. The Bulls, on a night of average luck, would have won that game. They did what they had to do defensively, and they kept up the pressure on offense. However, when it seems like God himself is watching over Cleveland's balls, there isn't much one can do.

Not exactly a "fluke" win for the Cavs, but it did show that they needed a decent dose of luck to win this game.




BTW, I missed you guys...been a long time since I've had a chance to jump back into the Cafe.

Hello there stranger. :-)

Yeah - watched a quite a bit of it too. Bulls really needed for someone to hit a consistent jumper - I'm looking at you Hinrich!

LOL, c'mon man...Cleveland was 10/20 on 3s. That's plain ridiculous!

Indeed. But you're going to beat very few teams when your SG goes 2-8 while the PG/SF aren't the biggest perimeter threats. In looking at the box score it's quite amazing the Bulls were in this game (expect for the Bull's TO's which definitely won't happen again).

The games have technically been a lot closer than I would have thought in Cleveland.

Tonight should be the real test for the Bullies.

Yup, definitely looking forward to it. I won't say Noah's one of my "favorite" players, but he's now on the list of guys I enjoy keeping tabs on. I guess I'm sold on the man-o-drama.

Sigh - when I turned it on Bulls were up close to 20 something. Of course the Cav's preceded to cut it to 9...maybe I should stop watching. :-o
