Virtually nothing went right for the Bulls in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, knowing that they were outscored 89-62 in the first three quarters before a respectable fourth quarter at least made the final score look decent. Many think that Head Coach Tom Thibodeau and the gang are going to get off of the mat in this one, but we aren’t all that sure that the season isn’t on the verge of being over for Chicago. The Bulls got the crushing news on Saturday that G Derrick Rose was probably out for the rest of the playoffs regardless of how far they get, and if that’s the case, they need to get a lot more in the way of contributions from their bigs to win even a single game in this series. C Joakim Noah looks visibly hurt and frustrated, while G Kirk Hinrich has a deep thigh bruise. Both will play on Monday, but there is a question as to how effective either will be when push comes to shove. Meanwhile, six players scored in double figures for the Nets in Game 1, and that includes getting 73 points combined between their “Big Four,” G Deron Williams, G Joe Johnson, F Gerald Wallace, and C Brook Lopez. If that keeps up, and especially if Wallace continues to play well, this Brooklyn team is clearly the superior outfit. We think that it comes up with a big effort on Monday to throw a haymaker at the Bulls in this series.
