Hawks-Bulls game thread

Hey, folks-

Ken Sugiura here, pinch hitting for MC. I’m glad you are enjoying his excellent coverage of your team. A couple quotes, and we’ll be at tipoff.

Mike Woodson:

I think we have 16 games left here at home, and it’s about trying to win every one of them. It starts tonight.

On the Bulls without Joakim Noah (who’s been shut down until the All-Star break with plantar fascitis): I’ve got to think they’ll play more small ball with Deng probably at the 4. That’s what they played at the end of the game when they beat us at their place in Chicago our last game with them. We’ve got to be prepared for that.

Vinny Del Negro:

We know what Atlanta does. They’re third in the league in fast-break points. They have explosive scoring ability. We’re going to have to be very efficient defensively, contest shots and they have Joe. He’s a guy that you can put not only one or two, maybe sometimes three guys on, he still has the ability to make plays. That’s a great asset to have.

Derrick Rose:

On JJ’s as a possible free agent acquisition: I’m going to play with the team that I have, but I wouldn’t mind. That’s something you wouldn’t mind, a player of his caliber. But the players we have, we’re doing fine.

Enjoy the game….

Josh has 5 assist in the first 5mins of the game. Can folks stop questioning his Bball IQ now????

I’m so glad we got Hubie Brown for tonight’s game. He’s a pleasure to listen to – he actually knows the Hawks team and gives you a quality analysis of them.

Hock aside, I’ve almost never seen anyone question Josh’s bball iq since the beginning of last season. Anyone who still does hasn’t watched many games since 2006.

Marvin has to look to score when he has a smaller defender guarding him. He had Hinrich on him in the post and he pass it back to Josh for a 20 footer

Can’t be a homer on this one. Rose’s dunk was one of the sickest I’ve ever seen.

Woody is altering his lineups. Tonight he had Horford instead of Josh with the 2nd. team.

Joe double dribbled. That’s what happens when you pound the ball too much!

Bibby comes in and they IMMEDIATELY take advantage.

Is Bibbys ankle still bothering him or is he just a bad defensive player?
