Bulls playoff season is now as meaningless as the regular season was. Next year is now in jeopardy too, not to mention that Luol Deng is in line for some surgery too.

Knicks are done. Not that they had much of a chance in the first place, but now that Shumpert is gone, I'd be surprised if they get a game (though I could see Miami deciding not to show up for Game 3 if they're up 2-0).

Amare Stoudemire cuts hand by punching fire extinguisher IMO box door because he is a selfish stupid child and can't play team ball. IMO he is out for the season.
Rondo, will miss game (2) with a 1 game suspension for acting like a child and shoving the ref. Well deserved suspension IMO.

Agreed. He could not stand that "Heat."

The Rondo is a bright-line rule, no ifs or buts. I know a lot of people think, hey it was in the heat of the moment or come on the refs made bad calls. The call of the foul IMO was the right call, and I am all for physical basketball, that was a foul. 2nd there can be no ifs or buts etc.. The only thing that can be argued is was it intentional or not. It was obviously intentional that means 1 game minimum no other way around it. If it was no Rondo and it was Brandon Bass or some other none-star on any team it would not have been such a big deal. That is why it has to be a suspension no matter what.

So far so good I will be happy with 1 out of 2 in NYC but I would not mind a sweep and it would not surprise me either.

No no no, you've got it all wrong. From what I can tell, per recent NBA tradition, the fire extinguisher either (a) got in the way of his momentum, or (b) got in the way of his celebration. Amare cannot be blamed.

Oh, FFS. Shades of Kevin Brown in 2004, and that didn't end well for the Yankees either.

It's like this team is actively trying to rip its fans' hearts out.

My Bulls looked absolutely awful in the second half last night. I thought we'd rally around Rose, but if we can't do it the game immediately after, we're pretty well screwed against better competition down the road.

Sad days

Agreed, most likely going to be Celtics v. Heat in the ECF.
Im thinking Lakers v. Spurs for the WCF.

Yea, they have been but they are stilling pulling out wins. I am 99% sure it will be one of the top three out of the west. And if the Heat get through the East, which they should, and I think they will I have no idea who would be the best match up against them.

Philly up 3-1 now, missing Rose and now Noah is really hurting them.

Knicks got their first playoff win in 13 years. It was a good game and Melo played great. I was not a fan of Wade taking a fadeway 3 to try to win the game. Heat did not play very well, I expect them to close it out in Miami on Wednesday, I will be there  highfive

LA Clippers just closed out Memphis.Yes! The game was close with both sides trading off points only by 1-2 at a time.Then the Clippers pulled away late in the fourth and won the series 4-3 and now move on in the playoffs.
