McDermott in for Kirk Bulls 103-63 5: 57 left 4th
McDermott gets a high five from Scottie Pippen before checking into the game for Hinrich.
Rose is even off the stationary bike.
As he comes out, I should add. He and Gibson out. Nazr in. Niko in. McDermott in. Hinrich out
Noah lightly claps his hands to the cheers of the crowd and boos of the Bucks still in the building. 103-63
McDermott to the scorer's table.
How big of a blowout has this game become? Thibs is sitting down.
Bench cleared ... stop crying.
Niko and Nazr in for Noah and Gibson.
Nazr in for Noah...Niko for Taj
Nazr Mohammed is in for Joakim Noah and Tom Thibodeau has sat down. Bring on the Cavs.
Bulls made double-digit 3-pointers in every game but Game 5.
Largest playoff win in team history is 42, says Bulls PR. Utah in '98.
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
Bulls 96-57..8:56 left 4th
"Whaaaaahhhhh ... Noah is still in the game ..... whaaaaaahhh......'' He needs the conditioning and work for what's coming.
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
Maybe Thibodeau is just trying to ensure all 5 starters reach double figures.
Bucks sub in Johnny O'Bryant and Jorge Gutierrez; Red Auerbach lighting up a cigar somewhere
In a 39 point game in the 4th quarter of a series you're about to close out-- the risks far outweigh the rewards.
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.
4th quarter Noah- Gibson- Hinrich Snell. Brooks starts the 4th
Noah back to start the 4th with Brooks, Gibson, Hinrich and Snell. This is Snell's first appearance.
Snell coming in with the Hinrich, Brooks, Taj and Noah. Extra work for the #13.
Bulls 91-52 after 3----it's on to Cleveland
Tyler Ennis hits a triple at the buzzer. Bulls lead cut to 39. Thibs may bring the starters back in
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.
Plumlee dunks over 2 Bulls, stuffs Gibson at the rim, Bayless triple. Crowd goes wild. I look up. Bulls lead 90-49
Dear Bucks fan, you are down 41. Save it.
How do you know the game is over? Plumlee scores....
Derrick done....Jimmy done... Noah done... Dunleavy and Pau only starters left on the floor.
Nice symmetry to the current score: 88-44. Still 2:19 left in 3rdQ.
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
Kidd has waved the flag.
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.
Timeout Chicago - up 44 ... feel like this lead is safe.
Bulls 88-44 2:19 left 3rd
Thibodeau irate at that Dudley 3-pointer. Bulls up 42.
Kirky - breaking ankles and rims.
Rose draws offensive foul on Middleton, pumping fist on floor as leaves with Bulls ahead 84-38. C'mon, serious 84-38?
Rose walked straight to the stationary bike and started pedaling.
Noah to the bench. Rose to the bench after taking a charge. He got up just fine.
Rose just walked up to Thibs and looked like he told him he wanted to come out of the game after taking that charge.
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….
Derrick's got his broke 3 ready to go for the Cleveland series ... so there's that....
Dear Joakim, can I have my hands back ... signed your friend The Booz ... Gimmie Dat!
Now Carter-Williams throws down Dunleavy. Technical; Bulls poor play prior games apparently convinced Bucks they actually belong in playoffs
MCW just gets a T. I'm really surprised he wasn't tossed. Bulls have to be very careful this doesn't get worse.
OK, MCW won't get tossed. Not sure how that's not considered throwing a punch.
MCW stays in the game ... to continue going after Dunleavy....
MCW gets a tech
Flagrant on MCW but reviewed for Flagrant 2. League will definitely look at Dunleavy earlier plays that precipitated this
Dunleavy has been so Dukie this game ... gotta love it.
Bounty collected ....
Offensive foul on Dunleavy. Technical foul on Carter-Williams. Officials reviewing. Think MCW gets tossed too.
Cheap shot on MCW
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
MCW just got Dunleavy back for a shot in the 1st quarter. He's going to get tossed.
Carter-Williams got revenge - but went way lower than the throat.
Carter-Williams sends Dunleavy to the floor...
MCW will be the next to exit; Dunleavy taking a beating tonight.
Starters still in.
If you haven't seen it yet, schedule for Round 2 is Mon-Wed at Clev; Fri-Sun at UC (or Milwaukee).
There's still a bounty on Dunleavy's head ... bet that....
With Bulls ahead 81-38 w/6:58 left in 3rd Bucks bench has now turned on NFL draft
I see a lot of Hinrich to Niko in about 7 minutes....
If Bulls can't hang on to this lead with their bench then they don't deserve to go to Round 2.
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
Lead is now 81-38. Feels relatively safe, but still 19 minutes left.
Bulls 81-38 6:58 left 3rd...Wowza...Bulls 10-19-3pt shots 4 starters in double figures
It's time for Thibs to take all the starters out. Seriously.
Bulls up by 43, 81-38. It’s time to send Jimmy and Derrick to the bench. Their work is done.
Kidd kept saying they were playing with house money ... just went bust!
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
The Bulls are up by 43 in Game 6 of a playoff series.
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.
Bulls up by 34. How many minutes will Jimmy play tonight?
What a half....thoughts Bulls fans?
Anybody have video of that Dunleavy hit to MCW’s throat in the 1st?
Now is as good a time as any to post the Bulls/Cavs schedule starting Monday: http://t.co/4xUanbylsA
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.
Wonder is NBA TV is asking Vinny if there's any way a team can lose a 32-point, second-half lead?
Bulls have assisted on 20 of 25 field goals.
Bucks and Bulls have to walk into the same tunnel. Bulls players stayed back and let Bucks go first ...
Bulls 65-33 at halftime; if they can play the same defense in the second half they only need one basket to win
