McDermott in for Kirk Bulls 103-63 5: 57 left 4th

Nick Friedell

McDermott gets a high five from Scottie Pippen before checking into the game for Hinrich.

KC Johnson

Rose is even off the stationary bike.

Vincent Goodwill

As he comes out, I should add. He and Gibson out. Nazr in. Niko in. McDermott in. Hinrich out

Vincent Goodwill

Noah lightly claps his hands to the cheers of the crowd and boos of the Bucks still in the building. 103-63

KC Johnson

McDermott to the scorer's table.

Nick Friedell

How big of a blowout has this game become? Thibs is sitting down.

Joe Cowley

Bench cleared ... stop crying.

Nick Friedell

Niko and Nazr in for Noah and Gibson.

Chuck Swirsky

Nazr in for Noah...Niko for Taj

KC Johnson

Nazr Mohammed is in for Joakim Noah and Tom Thibodeau has sat down. Bring on the Cavs.

KC Johnson

Bulls made double-digit 3-pointers in every game but Game 5.

Nick Friedell

From @ESPNStatsInfo: Largest win in series clincher: Bucks won by 50 in '71. Largest home loss in closeout game: Warriors lost by 40 in '69

Joe Cowley

Largest playoff win in team history is 42, says Bulls PR. Utah in '98.

Vincent Goodwill

I remember that game being the game every single Bull scored. Even Dickey Simpkins. I think Red Kerr and Tex Winter got some that game

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 96-57..8:56 left 4th

Joe Cowley

"Whaaaaahhhhh ... Noah is still in the game ..... whaaaaaahhh......'' He needs the conditioning and work for what's coming.

Vincent Goodwill

Largest Bulls playoff win, you may remember: Game 3 of the 98 finals against Utah. 96-54. Record Low scoring for the Jazz. Jazz embarrassed

KC Johnson

Maybe Thibodeau is just trying to ensure all 5 starters reach double figures.

Sam Smith

Bucks sub in Johnny O'Bryant and Jorge Gutierrez; Red Auerbach lighting up a cigar somewhere

Nick Friedell

In a 39 point game in the 4th quarter of a series you're about to close out-- the risks far outweigh the rewards.

Nick Friedell

Gasol comes out of the game -- and is replaced by -- Noah? Yep. I know Thibs wants to get Noah into a rhythm, but I don't get this one.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls are going to start 4thQ with Taj, Jo, Snell, Hinrich and Brooks.

Chuck Swirsky

4th quarter Noah- Gibson- Hinrich Snell. Brooks starts the 4th

KC Johnson

Noah back to start the 4th with Brooks, Gibson, Hinrich and Snell. This is Snell's first appearance.

Joe Cowley

Snell coming in with the Hinrich, Brooks, Taj and Noah. Extra work for the #13.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 91-52 after 3----it's on to Cleveland

Mike McGraw

The #Bulls are going to be playing tight now that Tyler Ennis cut lead to 39 after 3Qs.

Vincent Goodwill

Tyler Ennis hits a triple at the buzzer. Bulls lead cut to 39. Thibs may bring the starters back in

Nick Friedell

The Bucks just hit a buzzer beating 3 at the end of the 3rd quarter --- to cut their deficit to 39 heading into the 4th.

Vincent Goodwill

Plumlee dunks over 2 Bulls, stuffs Gibson at the rim, Bayless triple. Crowd goes wild. I look up. Bulls lead 90-49

Joe Cowley

Dear Bucks fan, you are down 41. Save it.

Joe Cowley

How do you know the game is over? Plumlee scores....

Joe Cowley

Derrick done....Jimmy done... Noah done... Dunleavy and Pau only starters left on the floor.

Mike McGraw

Nice symmetry to the current score: 88-44. Still 2:19 left in 3rdQ.

Sam Smith

Bucks starting to put in guys we've never heard of: Tyler Ennis, Miles Plumlee; Paul Mokeski and Alton Lister getting ready to check in

Chuck Swirsky

Kidd has waved the flag.

Vincent Goodwill

Guess not RT @milkmh83: all I said was professional sports writers are above trolling their bad spelling trolls. Guess you aren't above it.

Mike McGraw

That Bucks superfan section doesn't seem like such a great idea when it tries to get crowd excited about deficit being cut to 42.

Joe Cowley

Timeout Chicago - up 44 ... feel like this lead is safe.

Vincent Goodwill

Tell that to Bulls fans RT @Tim Bontemps: I'll be pretty surprised if Dunleavy doesn't get Game 1, as I believe you said earlier.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 88-44 2:19 left 3rd

Joe Cowley

Another guy for Jay to over-throw... not the standard.... twitter.com/Jason1Goff/sta…

KC Johnson

Thibodeau irate at that Dudley 3-pointer. Bulls up 42.

Joe Cowley

Kirky - breaking ankles and rims.

Sam Smith

Rose draws offensive foul on Middleton, pumping fist on floor as leaves with Bulls ahead 84-38. C'mon, serious 84-38?

Nick Friedell

Rose walked straight to the stationary bike and started pedaling.

Vincent Goodwill

Noah to the bench. Rose to the bench after taking a charge. He got up just fine.

Nick Friedell

Rose just walked up to Thibs and looked like he told him he wanted to come out of the game after taking that charge.

Mike McGraw

D-Rose takes a charge with #Bulls leading by 46. Not sure if that was a great idea, but Rose is coming out now.

Vincent Goodwill

Guy who trolls tells me I shouldn’t correct his spelling because I’m the writer. I guess non-writers shouldn’t practice good grammar….

Joe Cowley

Derrick's got his broke 3 ready to go for the Cleveland series ... so there's that....

Joe Cowley

Dear Joakim, can I have my hands back ... signed your friend The Booz ... Gimmie Dat!

Sam Smith

Now Carter-Williams throws down Dunleavy. Technical; Bulls poor play prior games apparently convinced Bucks they actually belong in playoffs

Nick Friedell

MCW just gets a T. I'm really surprised he wasn't tossed. Bulls have to be very careful this doesn't get worse.

Mike McGraw

OK, MCW won't get tossed. Not sure how that's not considered throwing a punch.

Vincent Goodwill

When you write in all caps, the key is to spell CORRECTLY RT @milkmh83: ALWAYS GOTTA COMPLAIN ABOUR SOMETHING

Joe Cowley

MCW stays in the game ... to continue going after Dunleavy....

Vincent Goodwill

Flagrant on MCW but reviewed for Flagrant 2. League will definitely look at Dunleavy earlier plays that precipitated this

Joe Cowley

Dunleavy has been so Dukie this game ... gotta love it.

KC Johnson

Offensive foul on Dunleavy. Technical foul on Carter-Williams. Officials reviewing. Think MCW gets tossed too.

Vincent Goodwill

Dunleavy hit again, this time by MCW. This time a little lower. He hit MCW early and Giannis and they’ve evened the score. Pull them Thibs

Nick Friedell

MCW just got Dunleavy back for a shot in the 1st quarter. He's going to get tossed.

Joe Cowley

Carter-Williams got revenge - but went way lower than the throat.

Chuck Swirsky

Carter-Williams sends Dunleavy to the floor...

Mike McGraw

MCW will be the next to exit; Dunleavy taking a beating tonight.

Joe Cowley

As well they should be .... no time to make a soft team softer.... twitter.com/vgoodwill/stat…

Mike McGraw

If you haven't seen it yet, schedule for Round 2 is Mon-Wed at Clev; Fri-Sun at UC (or Milwaukee).

Joe Cowley

There's still a bounty on Dunleavy's head ... bet that....

Sam Smith

With Bulls ahead 81-38 w/6:58 left in 3rd Bucks bench has now turned on NFL draft

Joe Cowley

I see a lot of Hinrich to Niko in about 7 minutes....

Nick Friedell

If Bulls can't hang on to this lead with their bench then they don't deserve to go to Round 2.

Vincent Goodwill

If a bench can’t hold a 43 point lead with 19 minutes to play, they don’t deserve to win the series. Pull 'em

Mike McGraw

Lead is now 81-38. Feels relatively safe, but still 19 minutes left.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 81-38 6:58 left 3rd...Wowza...Bulls 10-19-3pt shots 4 starters in double figures

Nick Friedell

It's time for Thibs to take all the starters out. Seriously.

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls up by 43, 81-38. It’s time to send Jimmy and Derrick to the bench. Their work is done.

Joe Cowley

Kidd kept saying they were playing with house money ... just went bust!

Sam Smith

Example of how this has gone tonite: Mayo drives baseline; Bulls triple team; Mayo throws ball to Butler; leads to Rose 3 and 81-38 lead

Nick Friedell

The Bulls are up by 43 in Game 6 of a playoff series.

Joe Cowley

This game is now all about protection ... Dunleavy status for Game 1 in Cleveland could be up in the error already. Don't need more.

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls up by 34. How many minutes will Jimmy play tonight?

Chuck Swirsky

One of the best if not THE best half of ball I've seen all year from the Bulls #SeeRed

Chuck Swirsky

What a half....thoughts Bulls fans?

Vincent Goodwill

No, it wasn’t RT @scottathon_: it was giannis

Vincent Goodwill

Dunleavy's hit to the neck of MCW. Wouldn't be surprised if he was told to relax at home for Game 1 vs. Cavs: vine.co/v/e7neQHjgql6

Vincent Goodwill

Anybody have video of that Dunleavy hit to MCW’s throat in the 1st?

Nick Friedell

How about this stat from @jacob_nitzberg: The Bucks missed 20 shots in the first half. They have one offensive rebound.

Vincent Goodwill

Now is as good a time as any to post the Bulls/Cavs schedule starting Monday: http://t.co/4xUanbylsA

Nick Friedell

Thibs surely reminding his team to stay composed heading into 2nd half. Last thing Bulls need is to get in a scuffle heading into Cleveland.

Mike McGraw

Wonder is NBA TV is asking Vinny if there's any way a team can lose a 32-point, second-half lead?

KC Johnson

Bulls have assisted on 20 of 25 field goals.

Joe Cowley

Bucks and Bulls have to walk into the same tunnel. Bulls players stayed back and let Bucks go first ...

Sam Smith

Bulls 65-33 at halftime; if they can play the same defense in the second half they only need one basket to win
